Thermal batteries to lower energy consumption
In a wide range of industrial plants such as the steel or chemical sectors, energy consumption represents a considerable part of production cost. These sectors emit large quantities of high-temperature heat that can be used as an alternative form of energy. The EU-funded HEAT2VALUE project proposes the thermal battery solution to store energy in the form of heat instead of electricity. High-grade heat that otherwise should be wasted can be collected, stored and discharged on demand and used to produce high-level energy in the form of electricity, heating and cooling. This flexible and efficient solution reduces fuel consumption. The benefits and performance of the solution will be demonstrated at a power plant.
