As part of its global footprint, Tata Steel operates various production facilities in IJmuiden / The Netherlands. During some production processes, intermittent high temperature exhausts are currently not utilized, but released to atmosphere.
Once construction of an EnergyNest TES is finished, it is time to make it work. Commissioning an EnergyNest TES is straightforward, at the same time it is important that it is carried out correctly to ensure that the TES performs optimally throughout the duration of the contracted lifetime.
New fossil-fuel reserve power plants to secure the energy transition are expected to come on line by 2018, according to a report in the 11 November 2016 issue of the magazine Capital.
If you are reading this, it’s probably due to your interest in energy storage and current trends in energy. You will also likely know something about molten salt systems used in CSP, and the associated challenges and headaches during construction and commissioning.
EnergyNest is honoured to have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon2020 Research and Innovation program under grant agreement number 744940 in October 2016.
The cost of renewable energy is dropping every year, and this year we saw record low cost Photovoltaic (PV) projects such as the 800 MW project in Dubai offered at 2.99 US$ cents/kWh.
Startup. One of the buzzwords you read everywhere in the social media and the newspapers. Driven by technology advancements it’s probably as easy as ever to found a new company.
Industrial operations require significant energy, with large amounts of this energy disappearing as as waste heat after use. EnergyNest’s thermal energy storage ensures that this widely untapped energy reserve can be converted effectively.
Masdar Institute of Science & Technology and EnergyNest AS initiated a comprehensive joint research project in 2013 for the building and testing a 2 x 500 kWhth EnergyNest-type Thermal Energy Storage (TES) pilot.
