1414 Degrees (ASX:14D) makes large scale energy storage for networks and industries. Its combined heat and power (CHP) solutions fill a critical gap in energy storage that batteries and other devices cannot service.
Our thermal energy storage systems (TESS) are set to reduce energy costs by increasing the efficiency of renewable generation and stabilising grid supply. 1414 Degrees technology will make energy more reliable, affordable and environmentally friendly by harnessing silicon to provide very high temperature storage and regeneration.
Silicon’s very high melting point, 1414° Celsius, and high energy density means it can hold much more energy than other phase change materials. It delivers maximum energy efficiency.
The TESS stores energy generated from electricity or gas and supplies both heat and electricity in the proportions required by consumers. It is unique in its combination of low cost, flexibility of location, scalability, and sustainability.
The energy from the latent heat is recovered as very hot air that powers a turbine to produce heat and electricity when required. It transforms intermittent renewable electricity by providing reliability and stability identical to that of a coal or gas fired power station.
The system is designed to be worked hard and frequently without losing efficiency and capacity because silicon is abundant and environmentally benign.
The result is low cost and clean storage of energy providing a stable supply of heat for consumers and electricity to the grid – a critical requirement for increasing renewable generation.
