For industries to cost-effectively decarbonize industrial heat, they have to end their dependence on gas and start electrifying their processes with efficient thermal energy storage.

As a society, we need to reduce our energy demand and speed up the integration of renewables without negatively affecting industrial output. This means switching to solid-state thermal batteries that harness surplus, or off-peak power, and available industrial heat for use on demand as secure, green steam and heat.

Tamsin Lishman, Chief Revenue Office at ENERGYNEST, expands on what steps industries assessing feasible options can do when it comes to the decarbonization of industrial heat.

A long-term plan to disincentivize fossil fuel use and encourage more sustainable forms of power generation from businesses is urgently needed.

To achieve this, recognition of where our energy consumption goes is crucial.
