Thermal energy storage
Thermal Storage + Barton Engine = a simply brilliant match.
Storing heat costs a fraction of the cost of storing electricity, and thermal storage is a fraction of the cost of electrochemical batteries.
The potential ‘value stack’ from Thermal energy storage includes generating electricity when customer-value is highest, reducing grid connection costs, increasing Barton engine utilisation reducing electricity costs, providing smooth, reliable output, stabilising power loads against deviations, levelling loads, shaving customer peak demand and providing voltage support.
