2.2 DAMES & MOORE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT - STONY BROOK, NEW YORK
Project Manager: Louis I. Stern
Dames & Moore
6 Commerce Drive
Cranford, NJ 07016
The site of the Dames & Moore Demonstration Project will be the Stony
Brook campus of the State University of New York. Dames & Moore will investi-
gate the possibility of using a portion of the Magothy aquifer as a storage
medium for chilled water. The conceptual design will use an existing cooling
tower for localized chilling of aquifer water in the winter and an existing
chilled water distribution system for cooling several campus buildings in the
The Stony Brook facility serves about 16,000 students on an 1100-acre
campus. Approximately 3,500,000 ft2 of office, classroom, laboratory, dormi-
tory and service buildings are heated and cooled by a central system. Cooling
consumes approximately one third of the 8.5 million gallons of No. 6 fuel oil
used each year. It would probably take less than five years to recover the
costs of an aquifer thermal energy storage facility at Stony Brook.
If successful, the demonstration could prove the feasibility of using an
aquifer thermal energy storage system to reduce the summer power peaks required
to air condition building complexes such as universities, apartment buildings,
industrial parks, and large industrial sites.
Other major participants in this contract are the State University of
New York at Stony Brook, the New York State Energy Research and Development
Agency (NYSERDA), and the Engineering Consulting Firm of Ambrosino and DePinto.
NYSERDA is a supporting sponsor and Ambrosino and DePinto will perform the
above-ground engineering services. Phase I of this program is scheduled to be
completed in FY-1982.
