1414 Degrees technology delivers an output of heat as well as electric power.
Energy is sourced from renewables or the grid, and is stored as latent heat at constant temperature. The energy is then dispatched on demand.
This breakthrough technology is set to disrupt energy storage globally because it provides energy in the form most used in the world – heat.
GAS-TESS has arrived on site at SA Water
The 1414 Degrees GAS-TESS is on target with all key components of the technology now on site at SA Water’s Glenelg Wastewater Treatment plant.
“This year we will realise the potential of our vision and technology to enable a world of clean energy.” – Kevin Moriarty
What is 1414 Degrees?
a patented thermal energy storage system (TESS) storing energy as latent heat in molten silicon
sizing of systems from 10 to 1000’s of megawatt hours for grid, off-grid and co-generation sites
benign environmental impact and carbon footprint reduction
low maintenance, low cost and low impact compared to lithium-ion batteries
silicon stores energy at 1414°C providing maximum efficiency of energy output
the use of abundantly available silicon ensures its sustainability and its affordability
TESS can be located in any climate, in any location. It is suitable for grid, off-grid and co-generation installations
wide range of uses in district heating, industrial complexes and shopping centres as well as grids
The 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 the grid and the clean heat and electricity delivered to industry or back to the grid when required.
1414 Degrees is developing joint ventures to commercialise its technology, incorporating generation, thermal storage and industry with heat energy requirements.
