Wärme in Beton zu speichern ist insbesondere im Neubau durch Nutzung der Gebäudehülle ein erprobtes Mittel. Doch auch hochgradige Prozesswärme kann man so speichern. Nötig ist hier ein Spezialbeton.
EnergyNest has launched a new hub for manufacturing their thermal battery technology at Europoort in Rotterdam. The cleantech company is responding to Europe’s growing demand for flexible and scalable energy storage solutions. Establishing mass-manufacture capability for their battery modules will allow the company’s energy storage projects to be real- ised more quickly and cost-competitively. In collaboration with HeidelbergCe- ment and Mebin, EnergyNest will start its first run in the third quarter of 2018. Manufacturing for two commercial projects will commence at the end of the year.
Norska EnergyNest har lanserat ett nytt nav för tillverkning av företagets termiska batteriteknik på Europoort i Rotterdam. Tillverkningen av nya batterimoduler börjar vid slutet av året vid Mebin RMC-fabrik i Rotterdam, enlig ett pressmeddelande från EnergyNest.
Together with HeidelbergCement, we have launched a manufacturing hub for supplying our thermal battery to the European market. Located strategically in Europoort, Port of Rotterdam, the site will produce the ready-to-use battery modules at a fully automated RMC plant operated and owned by Mebin.
Pre-fabricated module cassettes are cast with Heatcrete®, cured and quality controlled, before being transported directly to project sites for final assembly. The structure provides a consolidated platform for facilitating higher volume output and securing all quality aspects to accommodate the widely expected market growth for energy storage solutions for years to come.
Our VP Supply Chain Jon E. Bergan states that “the manufacturing setup we have established with our partners HeidelbergCement and Mebin is a critical step for the successful roll-out of this important technology, and consequently, contributing to improved energy usage and reducing carbon emissions in the European industrial landscape at a much faster rate”.
Volker Klapperich, Product Manager Civil Engineering at HeidelbergCement, says “expanding our footprint into this green, high potential market is an exciting new opportunity for the HeidelbergCement group”.

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.
