Already today, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) allows for energy storage as an integrated part of solar plants, enabling on-demand dispatch of electricity or heat during peak hours, or even 24/7 base-load operation. However, current thermal energy storage solutions such as molten salts limit the scaling and long-term economic viability of such systems.
Our technology offers a safer and economically more viable solution. A key lever to realize affordable and reliable energy storage, it also comes at a lower CAPEX and OPEX.
Storing thermal oil and turning it to power on demand is the technology of choice to enable the most cost-effective utilization of CSP assets: increasing flexibility and output of the CSP plant, and lowering total costs.
(3) The ThermalBatteryTM is discharged via the thermal oil loop to the steam generator, which then supplies steam on demand for the steam turbine
More value for money with thermal storage technology compared to oil tanks and molten salt storage.
Enables a true energy transition, matching supply and demand to make gas peak power plants for mornings and evenings redundant.
Low maintenance cost and complexity due to the ThermalBatteryTM core being maintenance-free and requiring less to no OPEX.
Thermal-Oil-BOP-package including piping, pumps, expansion-vessel, valves and instrumentation. Depending on customer requirement also independent distributed control system (DCS).
Depending on customer set-up, utilization or adjustment of existing water steam cycle including steam generator, steam turbine or new specially designed replacement / additional turbines allowing to boost electricity production in high-price times.
