Energy storage solution valuing low carbon available energy through lost heats for industries and renewables producers

Country of Origin: France
Reference Number: TOFR20190626001
Publication Date: 3 September 2019

Summary

A French innovative company that offers energy storage solution to industries willing to improve their energy efficiency by lost heats recovery and to renewables producers is looking for partnerships through commercial agreement with technical assistance, license agreement, manufacturing agreement or financial agreement.
The company support the implementation of its solutions from diagnosis of the energy deposit to the implementation of its technologies and performance monitoring.

Description

Today, waste heat represents up to 20% of the production costs in industry. In the world, the deposit of waste heat is approximately 4000 TWh/year. The existing energy storage solutions are either non sustainable or too expensive (molten salt, heat network, seasonal aquifere storage, etc.) and are not flexible.

A French innovative startup has developped an innovative energy storage solution wich allows the improvement of energy efficiency of industries by recovering their lost heat released by industrial processes fumes (until 1000°C). The solution can also allows the increase of competitiveness potential for renewable energies by storing surplus energy produced outside peak consumption. This recovered energy can then be upgraded as heat, steam, electricity or cold, low-cost and carbon-free.

The company is looking for industrial partners and renewables producers interested in improving their energy efficiency by valuing their low carbon available energy with the storage solution through commercial agreement with technical assistance or license agreement.

The company is looking as well for ovens/furnaces suppliers that will design complementary solution through manufacturing agreements and for energy service companies (ESCo) interested in investing in the solution through financial agreement in order to rent it to industries or renewables producers.

The company support the implementation of its solutions from diagnosis of the energy deposit to the implementation of its technologies and performance monitoring.

Technical specifications :
- 200°C < T°C range of the fumes < 1000°C
- 0.5 MWh < capacity range < 3 MWh
- 0.3 MW < power range < 3 MW
- 7% of loss per day
- 20 years of lifetime
- the solution is movable because it's containerized
- the solution is flexible because it is Plug&Play

The type of cooperation sought is a partnership with :
1. Industrial partners willing to improve their energy efficiency by lost heats recovery.
2. Engineering firms, integrators in order to take advantage of the network of actors that its partners have already built
3. Third-party financers

Advantages and Innovations

The energy storage solution is designed as an eco-responsible product, using thermal storage materials from the circular economy, made from waste and industrial co-products, allowing costs reduction while decreasing the environmental impact.

By valuing inorganic secondary raw materials from thermal processes (combustion residues), steel industry (slags), quarries activity (sludge, clay) and building (rubble, plaster), the company changes this wastes to eco-efficient finished products.

The solution provides low carbon energy at low cost and allows to reduce the process energy bill. It is a heat reserve available at all times and with a high level of efficiency.

Furthermore it reduces fossil fuel needs, thus reducing CO2 emissions.

It is the first eco-efficient & affordable solution for high temperature thermal energy storage. Compared to other solutions, the solution is the best compromise and is the simplest for industries that require a 2-6-year ROI.

It is the first simultaneously standardized & customizable storage solution :
- an ISO container with an input/output station to fit into almost any industrial process
- deployment capacity is fully customizable thanks to its modularity in terms of power & capacity (parallel vs. series)

After storage, it provides MWh of heat up to 1,000°C that is 80% cheaper than natural gas.

Over its long lifespan it significantly decreases the environmental impact of heavy industrial processes. Reduced CAPEX (capital expenditure) & OPEX (operational expenditure) together with the high mobility of the solution allow for very low financial risks. The standard form factor & modular design simplify adoption across a broad range of use cases.

Stage Of Development

Already on the market

Stage Of Development Comment

The first implementation of the solution was made in the center of France in a ceramic company. The company has a perfect view of the french market and begin to study the european one.

Requested partner

The company is interested in various agreements with different kinds of partners :

- Commercial agreements with technical assistance or license agreements with technology integrators and engineering companies that will include the technologies in their overall projects.

- Manufacturing agreements with ovens/furnaces suppliers that will design complementary solution (oven with heat recovery already included)

- Financial agreements with Energy service companies (ESCO) interested in investing in the solution in order to rent it to industries or renewables producers.
