CTO Christopher Greiner will be part of energy.connected this Friday, May 20th in Fornebu.
The race to net-zero is a historic opportunity for the energy industry. We stand at the doorstep of the decade of action. The foundation for new jobs and industrial growth rises from Norwegian energy resources, science, and knowledge.
It is a time for pioneers within the industry, in academia, finance and politics to set bold ambitions.
And it is a time for our best problem solvers to create sustainable solutions
To create global winners in this race, we need your energy. Because the transition must be for and about people. In times of change, maintaining trust between humans, is the key to success.

We are excited to invite you to the upcoming Net-Zero Heat webinar on the future of thermal flexibility for energy system decarbonization. There will be two sessions held on the 4th of May, 9:00-10:30 CET (APAC/EMEA-friendly) and 17:00-18:30 (Americas/EMEA-friendly). The webinar will highlight the applicability of thermal storage technologies for heat decarbonization, focusing on applications for industry and buildings. This webinar will be hosted by members of the Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES) Council with McKinsey & Company as knowledge partner of the Council, providing insights.
Launched at COP26, the LDES Council is a CEO-led organization that strives to provide fact-based guidance to governments and industry, drawing from the experience of its members, which include leading energy companies, technology providers, investors, and end-users.
Council members will share insights from their inaugural Net-Zero Heat report, where the challenges of heat decarbonization and opportunities for thermal flexibility and storage across industrial and buildings applications will be explored. Key findings of the report will be shared, followed by a live plenary panel discussion with representative Council members and thermal storage experts. The panel will also take questions from the audience.
The report is the result of months of research and collaboration of Council members and highlights the critical role of thermal flexibility in aligning supply and demand as global energy systems decarbonize. Early modeling insights show that system-wide thermal flexibility could result in the need for ~30% less heat generation capacity and ~15% less power generation capacity. The full Net-Zero Heat report will be available for COP27 on the LDES Council website.

The Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES) Council, a global CEO-led organization focused on replacing the use of fossil fuels to meet peak demand with zero-carbon long duration energy storage, today welcomes an additional eleven new members. The organization now has a total of 47 diverse companies in regions across the world representing the full spectrum of the energy transition – including technology innovators, equipment providers, renewable energy companies, utilities, investors, and end-users.
Joining the LDES Council are six new anchor members: Compass Datacenters, INNIO, Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, Reliance, Shell, and The Voith Group; as well as five technology members: Breeze, Brenmiller Energy, EnergyNest, Invinity Energy Systems, and SaltX Technology.
The addition of these new members builds upon the strong momentum the LDES Council has gained since launching in November 2021 at COP26 in Glasgow. The diverse perspectives and broad range of experience offered by the new LDES Council members will add tremendous value as the organization works to support governments, grid operators and major electricity users in the global adoption of cost-effective long duration energy storage to replace the use of fossil fuels.
In 2022, the LDES Council is prioritizing research into a number of decarbonization topics, led by Working Groups formed from member company representation. EnergyNest will focus on the following working group:
Net-zero heat: Heat decarbonization is poorly understood and underrepresented in global efforts despite constituting nearly half of global energy consumption. A comprehensive fact-base on net-zero heat along with a standardized perspective on heat decarbonization pathways and cost benchmarking will help illustrate the market potential of thermal LDES technologies, and improve optimization of energy systems overall through coupling of power, heat, and hydrogen.
Christian Thiel on EnergyNest joining the LDES Council: “For EnergyNest, it is all about making a true energy transition come to life and enable a world powered by renewables with reliable thermal energy storage. We are very happy to see an increasing focus and pace on heat and its importance for decarbonization, also now with the Net Zero Heating initiative driven by LDES. Industrial energy consumption with industrial heat as the main driver accounts for about one third of global energy consumption. The willingness to decarbonize and act will determine how fast we can make a change, and realize carbon reduction and efficiency gains. The LDES Council brings together innovative companies and smart people, who are all about constantly pushing the boundaries by developing new, sustainable and green technologies. We are proud to become part of this initiative and put industrial heat on the agenda of industry and governments.”

Thermal technologies like concentrated solar power and thermal energy storage systems are key for the decarbonisation of the heat and power sector. Thermal technologies like concentrated solar power and thermal energy storage are key for decarbonizing energy systems. They enable the reliable provision of green heat, contribute to increasing energy efficiency and provide flexibility for both the heat and power sectors.
McKinsey & Company invites to the COP26 Energy Transition follow-up CxO panel event “Technology Unlocks in the Energy Transition” on March 9, during CERAWeek in Houston or virtually via live broadcast. At COP26, they hosted an event on ‘Managing in the Energy Transition’, where technology, commercial, policy and the financing unlocks needed to meet net-zero were discussed. This is part of a series to explore these themes and convene decision-makers to continue the dialogue.
During this upcoming panel session, EnergyNest CEO Christian Thiel will be part of a panel and roundtable. The session will focus on the discussion of the technological breakthroughs required to accelerate the implementation and adoption of CCUS, DAC, LDES and Electrolysis.
