ENERGYNEST has finalized its second thermal energy storage project. On coming Wednesday, September 6, we will celebrate the inauguration for the renewable energy project to go into operation on site: Europe’s largest Concentrated Solar Thermal platform and Thermal Storage unit. Together with press, internal and external stakeholders and honorary guest like Tinne Van der Straeten, Belgiums Federal Minister for Energy, all partners will push the button for heat to be delivered to the factory in Turnhout, Belgium.


This is such a milestone for thermal energy storage and its commercialization on helping companies decarbonize industrial heat!


We are proud to be partnering with Azteq BV and Campina Energie BV and Avery Dennison, a leading global packaging and materials manufacturer, and supporting them on their journey to net-zero. Congratulations to Avery Dennison for being a true leader in the adaption of thermal storage!
