This research provides a method in comprehensive evaluation of cost-saving potential of active cool thermal energy storage (CTES) integrated with HVAC system for demand management in non-residential building. The active storage is beneficial to building demand management by shifting peak demand as well as providing longer duration and larger capacity of demand response (DR). In this research, it is assumed that the active CTES is under control of the fast DR strategy during DR events and storage-priority operation mode to shift peak demand during the normal days. The capacity of active CTES is optimized under the incentives of both modes.
