Hybrid systems, integrating Electric Energy Storage (EES) and Thermal Energy Storage (TES) have been implemented in order to optimize energy efficiency and load leveling for Renewable Energy and Systems. This integration is allowing for significant improvement and stability in the operation in a critical application such as Hospital, Datacenters, Manufacturing Plants and other critical thermal/electric processes.Improved performance and stability were measured. Ramp up and Ramp down of the equipment are reduced and the Supply and Return process temperatures are stabilized. Developed to be operated on a 24/7 basis, the system act as a buffer to mitigate the fluctuations in the demand. Monitoring has shown that optimum results in building and industrial facilities are obtained when initial fluctuating conditions were observed.
