Air Conditioning With Off-Peak Generated Ice

In a neat twist on energy storage, this AC unit in Nantucket (click the image for details) uses its own ice-maker, creating the ice in the cool of the night using off-peak electricity. It uses an Ice Bear battery storage system, a technology that saves 40% on dommestic and commercial air conditioning.

That's potentially huge - there are an awful lot of AC units just in America - and a great help in spreading the load on the energy grid and tackling climate change.

What can I say... it's a really cool idea!
