Please advise the "Plant Application Guide" located in the documentation folder of your E+ installation folder. The guide includes in it's second example a layout of both cold side and hot side thermal storage.

I note that the "Plant Application Guide" Example System 2 covers only a TES for the chilled water loop. Do you know of any other examples/example files where a TES has been used for hot water storage?
