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.
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.
Executive Chairman of 1414 Degrees, Dr Kevin Moriarty said “This marks a pivotal phase in the commissioning process, firing the burners for the first time and heating up the thermal energy store. Importantly, we will pay for the biogas we use and sell electricity at market prices to test the revenue model.”
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
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.
