Described is a thermal energy storage and delivery system for delivering thermal energy to both a passenger compartment of a vehicle and a component, such as a battery, located externally of the passenger compartment. The system capitalizes on excess capacity stored in a thermal energy storage apparatus, to heat the external component in addition to the passenger compartment.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A thermal energy storage and delivery system operable to discharge thermal potential to both a passenger compartment of a vehicle and a vehicle component located externally of the passenger compartment, said system comprising:(i) a main environmental control system for imparting thermal potential to the passenger compartment to maintain a non-ambient temperature within the passenger compartment while an engine of the vehicle is in operation, said main environmental control system including:a primary thermal supply loop for cir...
