This paper investigates the role of latent heat Thermal Energy Storage (TES) in aquarium applications. A background of the industry explains their multi aspect role in tourism attraction, entertainment, training, education, and research. Aquariums require electricity as the major energy resource to run the Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning & Refrigeration (HVAC-R) systems and machinery to maintains the aqua environment liveable for sea creatures including penguins, 24/7. Strict control of that environment requires continuous and reliable electricity and a control system. It is essential that aquariums transition away conventional energy resources to renewable alternatives as society transitions to a low carbon future.
