Legislation, economics and the impending climate crisis is requiring electric generation to transition rapidly away from fossil fuels to non-dispatchable, zero-carbon wind and solar. There is currently no long-enduring (>10 hr) energy storage solution. Pumped hydro and compressed air storage have geographic constraints, but thermal energy storage (TES) does not, and has been proven with Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Plants. TES offers the most geographically neutral and economic solution.
We provide an engineered solution using non-toxic, known materials into existing plant infrastructure and footprint. These plants would then maintain at least part of the current workforce and require FAR less permitting, studies, and time to design and build.
