Energy is necessity in daily life. Sources of energy from fossil includes coal, gas and petroleum have been used to generate electricity for centuries. Energy resources have been scarce and this leads to continual increasing of electricity cost. Commercial building has not been spared from the effects of the rising cost in electricity. Air conditioning has been the largest contributor to the cost of electricity for building. Appropriate actions are needed to resolve the problem of this rising cost. Thermal Energy Storage is one of the measures for reducing the cost of electricity. The development of A Thermal Energy Storage Simulation and Modeling TESSM has been design and develop to help non-technical person to calculate cooling load, potential cost savings and economic analysis for application of thermal energy storage in buildings. TESSM has been developed using Matlab GUI software. Appling the TESSM case study on sample of UTHM building showed that a potential saving annual electricity cost by 30%. The TESSM is a user-friendly program, where users from various backgrounds are able to make decisions for the application of thermal energy storage in their buildings with the result reducing total electricity costs significantly.
