GTES (Gigawatt-hour Thermal Energy Storage)

Techno-economic analysis shows that thermal energy storage is highly competitive with other energy storage solutions.

Charging – while renewable energy is being produced and in low demand.
Storing energy – while not needed for the grid or for residential/industrial uses.
Discharging – when the sun is not shining and the wind is not blowing.
While charging, a predictable and dependable thermocline develops.
Computational modeling shows how little heat is lost to the environment.
Repurposing of legacy fossil fuel plants.
