1414 Degrees’ thermal energy storage technology is set for global growth, stabilising renewables to make clean energy available to all, at all times.
Its world first, patented Thermal Energy Storage System (TESS) takes gas or electricity from any source and stores it as latent heat in silicon which melts at 1414°C. The energy from the latent heat can then be reclaimed and distributed as heat and electricity when required. It has a benign environmental impact and is location agnostic. This clean energy storage solution is designed to address renewable intermittency and grid stability.
