The energy industry is in transition and storage is integral to keeping the lights on in a renewable energy future.
1414 Degrees’ large scale storage solutions will solve the threats of uncertain supply and high prices by addressing both heat and electrical energy needs for a clean, sustainable future.
This breakthrough technology is set to disrupt energy storage globally because it provides energy in the form most used in the world – heat.
Energy storage innovation heating up with GAS-TESS launch
South Australian energy innovator 1414 Degrees strides ahead with its unique patented thermal energy storage system (TESS) powered by biogas. The gas started flowing today from SA Water’s Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant, the company’s first commercial pilot site.
South Australian Minister for Energy and Mining, Dan van Holst Pellekaan, launched the GAS-TESS by releasing the biogas from the wastewater digestors.
What is 1414 Degrees?
1414 Degrees technology is set for global growth, stabilising renewables to make clean energy available to all, at all times.
1414 Degrees’ patented Thermal Energy Storage Solution (TESS) takes in electricity or biogas, stores it as heat and discharges both heat and electricity in the proportions required. The TESS provides an alternative to gas, coal or electricity for process heat, enabling low cost carbon reduction using renewable energy sources.
Our technology is the first of its kind – no other solution is delivering heat and electrical energy at the scale and low cost of 1414 Degrees. It is unique in its combination of versatility, scalability and sustainability.
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
Access to energy should be as simple as flicking a switch. Our goal is to make clean, affordable energy available to all, at all times.
Distributed within grids with high renewable penetration, 1414 Degrees’ solutions will stabilise networks while providing lower cost energy for industry.
1414 Degrees is developing joint ventures to commercialise its technology, incorporating generation, thermal storage and industry with heat energy requirements.
