If you are an energy producer or industrial consumer, it is likely that you are producing very large quantities of heat that could be deployed in a flexible manner to maximize its value. We store this high value heat for later use, thereby enabling our customers to manage their energy – maximizing its economic value and even obtaining new revenues. We install our systems all over the world, serving numerous customer types with our easy-to-operate technology.

Balancing out CST production for tape-factory
The production unit of Avery Dennison in Belgium is shifting their heat production from NG to CST, which will be the largest CST platform in Europe together with solar thermal developer bv Azteq. The CST plant will supply thermal energy to the steam generator supplying steam to the production plant. Excess thermal energy will be stored in our TB and dispatch it upon demand and at night, helping to further reduce emissions and enabling the plant to meet their reduction target of 70% as part of the company’s 2030 sustainability targets and net zero emissions by 2050.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 859232.
Steam-grid-balancing in integrated chemical plant
Together with the fertilizer producer Yara International, we are integrating a 4 MWh TB directly connected to the steam grid at their production facility at Porsgrunn in Norway. The system will provide increased flexibility to the plant by balancing local steam production and reduce the amount of dumped excess steam.
Balancing out CST production for Eni’s oil refinery plant
Renewable steam production during the day requires thermal storage to extend production after sunset. Integrating our TB into the oil treat plant, steam is supplied on demand for onsite consumption and for electricity production with a CST-heated HTF. Reducing fossil fuel consumption across its oil treatment and refinery assets is an elementary contributor to Eni’s objective of reaching net zero emissions in its upstream business until 2030. Due to the simple integration and fully automated operation of the TB in this demonstration project, increased security of supply ensures constant, stable steam production regardless of sun radiation fluctuations. This sets the basis for future rollout of CSP technology in conjunction with thermal energy storage solutions.
Thermal Battery – Masdar pilot
In 2015, we installed and commissioned our Thermal Battery pilot with combined capacity of 1 MWhth at the Masdar Institute Solar Platform (MISP) in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The demonstrated and measured long-term effect of the Thermal Battery System installed and tested at the MISP shows no sign of change in performance, and proves the operational capabilities of the technology and modular EnergyNest Thermal Battery design.
