Heat storage is like a battery, for heat. It helps to safeguard your process against critical events. It can also be used to minimise the levelised cost of heat or to minimise CO2 emissions.
Industrial processes often require heat. Usually this heat is provided by steam or water, which are generated by gas boilers. In order to reduce their CO2 footprint, many industries are considering electrical alternatives such as heat pumps or e-boilers. With increasingly volatile electricity prices, the opportunities for time arbitrage and cost reduction are plentiful – provided that the energy system is carefully thought out. Energy storage in the form of electricity or heat is an important element.
Entras’ expertise helps to simulate different scenarios. We consider the constraints and costs of each element to find your optimum business case. Once built, we optimise the operation in real-time to make best use of market opportunities.
