Message - double drywall as thermal mass

I've read that some energy efficient builders are using "double drywall" as a means of attaining greater thermal mass to improve the energy efficiency in certain building situations..

we are going to replace our deteriorated wood paneled basement walls with drywall (also improving light situation downstairs). this is a 1930s house in eastern Ontario (cold winters, hot summers)..

since drywall is pretty cheap any comments on whether using double drywalling will have any effect in a basement??
