Today, waste heat represents up to 20% of the production costs in industry. In the world, the deposit of waste heat is approximately 4000 TWh/year. The existing energy storage solutions are either non sustainable or too expensive (molten salt, heat network, seasonal aquifere storage, etc.) and are not flexible.
A French innovative startup has developped an innovative energy storage solution wich allows the improvement of energy efficiency of industries by recovering their lost heat released by industrial processes fumes (until 1000°C). The solution can also allows the increase of competitiveness potential for renewable energies by storing surplus energy produced outside peak consumption. This recovered energy can then be upgraded as heat, steam, electricity or cold, low-cost and carbon-free.
The company is looking for industrial partners and renewables producers interested in improving their energy efficiency by valuing their low carbon available energy with the storage solution through commercial agreement with technical assistance or license agreement.
The company is looking as well for ovens/furnaces suppliers that will design complementary solution through manufacturing agreements and for energy service companies (ESCo) interested in investing in the solution through financial agreement in order to rent it to industries or renewables producers.
The company support the implementation of its solutions from diagnosis of the energy deposit to the implementation of its technologies and performance monitoring.
Technical specifications :
- 200°C < T°C range of the fumes < 1000°C
- 0.5 MWh < capacity range < 3 MWh
- 0.3 MW < power range < 3 MW
- 7% of loss per day
- 20 years of lifetime
- the solution is movable because it's containerized
- the solution is flexible because it is Plug&Play
The type of cooperation sought is a partnership with :
1. Industrial partners willing to improve their energy efficiency by lost heats recovery.
2. Engineering firms, integrators in order to take advantage of the network of actors that its partners have already built
3. Third-party financers
