1414 Degrees clean storage is set to reduce energy costs by increasing the efficiency of renewable generation and stabilising grid supply.
The above fly-through animation is an artistic impression that demonstrates the scalability of the 1414 Degrees technology to 1GWh and beyond. Energy can be sourced from renewables or even the grid and the clean heat and electricity delivered to industry and the grid when required.
1414 Degrees is developing joint ventures to commercialise its technology, incorporating generation, thermal storage and industry with heat energy requirements.
Our goal is to be the main supplier of large scale energy storage.
A solution for networks from grid scale to urban developments.
Over the past 10 years, 1414 Degrees has invested over $3M with the assistance of AusIndustry grants. For five years it has funded research by the University of Adelaide engineering faculty into silicon energy capture and recovery, and employed several graduates to design and build the first commercial prototype.
Government and industrial companies are supporting the development with funding or in kind contributions. For example, Schneider Electric have supplied the control circuitry and refractory manufacturers have offered to supply the high temperature containment materials. The South Australian government has supported the prototype development in its Tonsley Park Innovation precinct.
1414 Degrees is planning a future IPO.
