Renewable energy requires load shifting.
Generating thermal energy from renewable power sources like the sun and wind is challenging - sometimes there’s too little of it, and sometimes there’s too much of it.
Our thermal battery enables load shifting by storing energy from renewable sources when it is abundant, and storing it for later use.
The result is low cost and clean energy.
With low CAPEX and negligible OPEX, our thermal battery can deliver Levelized Cost of Storage as low as $10/MWh*

Thanks to having few moving parts and the fact that the salt does not degrade over time, the expected lifetime of is 20-30 years
Plug and play
The Kyoto Heatcube is prefabricated and delivered on site, ready to be easily integrated to your production system
Since we only use abundant non-toxic components in our battery, Kyoto Heatcube can be recycled without leaving any harmful chemicals in the environment
Kyoto Heatcube™ pilot
On 1 February 2020 we started the development of our unmanned thermal battery. By mid June Kyoto Heatcube™ was in operation with molten salt, managed with our own SCADA system, Kyotopia.
Since then we have overcome quite a few challenges. The prototype is dimensioned for loads up to 1 MW.
The pilot will serve as our base for future development and testing as we scale the capacity and load of Kyoto Heatcube™.
