1414° Thermal Energy Storage

We perform cost feasibility to procure and incorporate 1414° Thermal Energy Storage Systems (TESS) at a privately funded solar farm at Lovedale, NSW, at this stage we are unsure if the owner has the vision & understands the potential this Australian technology offers, in relationship to selling there Stored energy after sunset & sold at peak on-demand rates, and also utilising the latent heat.

Installing a 1414° TESS unit in sub-station adjacent to the solar farm, allows the Solar Farm the option to first send the energy directly into the TESS unit to be store & dispatch at a better rate in Peak demand times, thus shortening the break-even investment time significantly, instead of Exporting all the energy directly into AustGrid network during the day, at a lesser feed-in rate.

As mentioned a TESS unit provides significant latent heat, that in turn can be used by close proximity businesses, thus saving them using additional electricity to Heat water for Manufacturing, area heating or even heat swimming pools, to mention just a few.

NB: The 1414° Thermal Energy Storage System (TESS) is currently only for commercial applications.

  1. 1414° TESS is best suited to utilise what would otherwise be wasted energy from the likes of excess energy from Solar, Wind, Aqua and the latest is BioGas produced from sewerage plants, used to heat the Silicon and then used or stored as required, by simply converting the energy to heat Silicon (Sand) to 1'414 degrees.
  2. TESS can take any input voltage, and transform the incoming energy/voltage to the internal TESS operating voltage.
  3. 1414° TESS unit has successfully been tested to drive a jet turbine with the hot air coming from the TESS unit.
  4. The Jet Turbine turns a large heavy flywheel that turns a large Alternator to provides power, 1414° is developed a turbine to operate on NG, and possibly Diesel, Ethanol or any alternative fuels in the near future.
  5. Clients only need to specify the input volts/megawatts and the device will be design accordingly.
  6. It takes up to *800kW to melt one ton of Silicon (Si) from room temperature (e.g. *300kW to raise Si from 30 deg to 1414°, then *500kW power to convert the Si from solid to molten, with no change in temperature.
  7. Approx. 16'000kW (1.6MW) of power is initially required to get a 10MWh TESS unit operational, before the power can be drawn from it.
  8. The first operational prototype has one tonne of Si, the 10 MWh TESS will use 20 tonnes of Si.
  9. A 10 MWh TESS unit is usually delivered as a fully housed and sealed unit, approx. the size of 12mt shipping container & double the width.

The final cost to install a fully commissioned 1414° unit on site can varies considerably, a TESS unit can be delivered as a fully housed & sealed unit will reduce the commissioning cost, if required a TESS unit can be delivered in sections and assembled on site for difficult locations.

A TESS unit first needs to be brought up to operating temperature of 1414° before unit can Export energy into Grid network. The Smarter consideration is to charge a TESS unit(s) and then the owner has the option to Export there energy at a higher price paid for energy that is sold during Peak Power times!

No matter what type of energy is used to Charge a TESS unit, the latent Thermal heat can be used to heat Water or area spaces, this is critical to enabling a quicker return on investment, as it will save the business using other forms or energy.
