WATCH: Facility integration and thermal batteries - 20 October

20 October 2021

Following on from Energy Procurement and Load-shifting, this second in a two-event series focussed on technologies and systems you can implement to take advantage of more flexible energy contracts and procurement.

With more and more renewables being installed onsite, businesses need to create systems that shift the renewable generation to when it is needed on-site and also be able to discharge it to the grid when financially advantageous.

Our presenters outlined innovative district cooling applications and thermal storage technologies, including a solar powered 'water battery' installed at the University of Sunshine Coast, a thermal battery storing energy in aluminium and another in a concrete-like material.
