At congested campuses, operating multiple TES systems on a single thermal hydronic loop has proven key to fulfilling the storied promise of load leveling, reduced demand costs and energy use, as well as enhanced resiliency, all at a small fraction of the cost of added thermal energy production. At UT Austin, this success story is a work in progress, with early realized savings of ~6% in fuel gas consumption and over $1M annual savings, all despite nearly 2 million square feet of additional served space. Here we will discuss the ongoing efforts, struggles, and successes of such a system.
