THERMAL STORAGE

  • Store solar thermal energy

  • Thermal energy heats a metal storage medium

  • Refractory insulation keeps the metal at temperature w/ loss of <2%/month

  • Thermal energy transferred using high-velocity solid-state conductors

  • Simple & readily scalable

  • Cheaply store electric from the grid, wind & sun as thermal energy

  • We store energy as high-temperature heat (1,750°C)

  • Heat drives turbine producing electric @38% (2x PV)

  • We utilize 90% of exhaust heat for “thermal jobs”

  • Freezing/refrigeration, water  & salt-rich brine

  • This “free energy” conserves electric for its high value uses

Our sister companies have developed and perfected our thermal storage technology to deliver storage solutions up to  32MW hrs. thermal in a 26 m3  containment and small enough to be carried by hand storing  8MJ per kg.

The residential battery system (shown on the far left)  delivers  3-6 kW electric 24/7, interfaces with our panels, can  and enough thermal energy to heat and cool  (using absorption chillers) a 600 m2 residence, with 72 hours backup.
