Climate change is one of the most severe problems of our time. The world needs to shift to renewable energy. The challenge: renewable energy production largely depends on the availability of sun and wind. Decoupling energy production from consumption with storage facilities is crucial for the transition to renewable energy. A world-wide transition requires a global storage capacity of more than 15,000 TWh el in 2050.
Industrial waste heat is also a kind of renewable energy. The market size of waste heat was determined to 280 TWh for Germany alone. The world-wide potential is not known yet.
At Kraftblock our mission is to design a storage based sustainable energy system.
Kraftblock provides an eco-friendly, cost-efficient and highly scalable, modular thermal energy storage system. A cornerstone for the transition to renewable energy.
