In today’s competitive world it is not enough for startups and young companies to boast great technology, great people or great business concepts–you need market credibility. And what better way to achieve this than by partnering with the best and brightest companies out there?
Contradictory as it may seem, conventional thermal power plants fired by coal, gas, oil and nuclear have an important role to play in the transformation from fossil to renewable electricity. Currently, thermal power plants maintain grid stability and provide power when the wind is not blowing and the sun is not shining, ensuring that the lights are always on.
Evaluating the performance of the EnergyNest thermal energy storage (TES) poses a number of technical challenges. How does one determine the performance for a given storage system? How much energy is stored? How much energy can be extracted? And how fast?
Concrete is the world’s second most utilized material after water. Each year, about one cubic metre of concrete is produced for every man, woman and child on the planet.
China is leading the world in installed wind power capacity, yet falls behind the US when it comes to wind electricity delivered to the grid.
EnergyNest took part in UN’s Climate Change Conference in Marrakech (COP22), Morocco during November 1 through 18, 2016. This is the third time the company has participated in these important events in which the international community and world leaders come together to discuss and agree upon actions to contain the serious climate impact caused by human activities.
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.
