DN Tanks
In 2011, DYK and Natgun merged to form DN Tanks, the largest concrete tank manufacturer in North America with over 130 years of combined experience. With offices throughout the U.S. and in the Middle East, DN Tanks designs and builds watertight prestressed concrete tanks for these liquid storage applications: chilled water Thermal Energy Storage (TES), hot water TES, anaerobic digestion, water, and wastewater. Because our tanks are concrete, they can be constructed above ground, partially or fully buried.

Kelvin Thermal Energy
District Energy facilities, like all industrial-scale GHG emitters, are being pressured to reduce emissions resulting from the growing public awareness of climate change and carbon taxes. Meanwhile, electricity users face cost fluctuations in the grid between peak/off-peak hours, compounded by an increasing but intermittent supply of electricity from renewable resources such as solar and wind. Kelvin\'s proprietary Thermal Energy Matrix Storage (“TEMS”) technology provides emitters with a means of profitably reducing GHGs. TEMS converts inexpensive electricity into CleanHeat and stores it to provide an alternative to boilers, or working in parallel to increase their operational efficiency.

Underground Energy, LLC
Underground Energy offers unique expertise with seasonal thermal energy storage in aquifers and borehole fields. With decades of Earth engineering experience, our value proposition is to optimize the performance of the Earth couple using Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) to cool and/or heat large buildings and district energy systems. Significant energy savings can be realized in comparison to conventional geothermal heating and cooling systems, particularly when chilled water can be stored in an aquifer in winter, and used for direct cooling the following summer. We team with engineers, architects, non-profits, developers and thermal energy users who seek value in sustainability
