ABSTRACT
The article reports on the significance of the integrated energy system and thermal ice storage system at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. The system is capable of responding to almost any utility emergency and the university expects to save expenses through it. This system includes the Central Heating and Refrigeration Plant (CHRP), Arizona Health Science Plant (AHSC) and Central Refrigeration Plant (CRB) that generate steam, electricity and chilled water for the campus.
