1414 Degrees clean energy storage is set to reduce energy costs by increasing the efficiency of renewable generation and stabilising grid supply.
1414 Degrees’ thermal energy storage system (TESS) is highly efficient, clean, scalable, sustainable and unlike any other energy storage system in the world.
Current storage solutions focus on storing and output of electric power, whereas the 1414 Degrees technology delivers an output of heat as well as electric power. Electricity 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.
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.
