The Future of Energy Storage

Metal Hydride Based Thermochemical Super Batteries

Significantly Improves Energy Storage Density

Innovative Energy Storage Technology is Fundamental for Modern Life

Enhance Performance Metal-Hydride Chemical-Energy Storage Systems will be Used to ‘Close the Energy Loop’ - Energy Reserve. The Higher the Battery's Capacity, the More Solar Energy can be Stored.

Metal Hydride Batteries are the one of the best High Performance Energy Storage Systems. They are very beneficial and represent a better state-of-the-art new technology.

There is a critical need to find efficient, cost-effective thermal energy storage solutions to maximize the use of domestic solar and energy resources. Most utility-scale solar power plants only run at about 25% of their capacity because they can't generate power at night-thermal energy storage makes it possible to increase this capacity to up to 60-75%. Similarly, power plants produce a constant output of power--thermal energy storage could help increase this output during times of critical peak demand. Therefore saving utility companies billions of dollars.

Chemical storage is the technology of storing heat by utilizing highly efficient reversible alloys and hydride materials, in a chemical-reactions. It is an endothermic process, hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions.

The main advantage of hydrides, namely their compactness, can be used to the full extent with a Hydride Battery, ultimately more cost-effective. Low cost and a high efficiency performance.

Rather than Storing an Electrical Charge, it Converts the Electrical Input to Heat

Applications: To firm up renewables projects. As a peaking resource for Utilities, Industry, Government. Metal Hydride Batteries will also be used for peaking power and for power grid support and as auxiliary batteries.

A New Class of High Efficiency Materials

Our Hydride Battery will be using composite hydrides-alloys for reversible high temperature energy storage which are a class of materials containing metal or metalloid bonded to hydrogen.

Metal Hydride is a reversible chemical reaction, the thermal energy transforms into chemical energy. Energy can be stored in the metal hydride indefinitely and long-time storage will not decrease efficiency, as the hydrogen is part of a stable chemical bond. Metal hydroxides are reversible exothermic reactions.

Metal Hydride Batteries stores electricity from any power source in the form of heat and creates electricity from that heat. Heat turned into electricity.

Cutting edge Metal Hydride thermal batteries can store the suns power and deliver zero emission, low cost energy after the sunsets.

The Metal Hydride Thermal Storage System is designed for utility-scale power plants with tens to hundreds of megawatts capacity. The storage solution is capable of providing load-following power on-demand on a 24/7 basis.

The Metal Hydride Battery consists of a hot and a cold side. The Hydride Battery is charged by the heat from an electric furnace fed by the electricity generated from solar cell panels. This heat creates a reaction between the metals and hydrogen to store the heat energy. Hydrogen contains the maximum energy per mass among all fuels.

This new class of proprietary, high efficiency, Metal Hydride, has no degradation problems. It is able to store the heat for an extremely long time. With close to zero energy losses and no corrosion and it does not include any rare metals. It is a balanced system that yields consistent steady-state cycling behavior.

This thermal energy storage technology intensifies the storage of heat by more than ten times compared to latent and sensible heat storage technologies.

Metal hydrides are capable of storing huge amounts of heat with rapid reaction kinetics.

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is a key technology for implementing renewable energies.

Chemical storage is the technology of storing heat by utilizing reversible chemical reactions.

This represents a benchmark in energy storage.

Integrating Thermochemical Energy Storage Via a Thermal Battery

How It Technically Works

In this reversible chemical reaction, the thermal energy transforms into chemical energy. In the forward reaction, thermal energy serves as the power source to drive the chemical reaction and it is able to store heat by breaking the chemical bonds in the AB molecules, dissociating AB into A and B. It is an Endothermic Process. In the reverse reaction, since the intrinsic property of exothermic reaction, the A and B molecules bind together and produce AB compounds, transforming the chemical energy back to thermal energy and releasing a large amount of heat. During the process of thermal energy storage and release, the most important thing is that the heat is stored in chemical form without any thermal waste and the energy in the chemicals do not fade in a long time with exergetic efficiency up to 96% or better.

Using Metal Hydride Batteries will revolutionize the landscape of renewable energy production world-wide.

One Battery Many Applications

Critical Need - How Does it Help Humanity

There is a critical need to find efficient, cost-effective energy storage solutions to maximize the use of domestic solar and wind energy resources. Most utility-scale solar power plants only run at about 25% of their capacity because they can't generate power at night. The Hydride Battery - thermal energy storage makes it possible to increase this capacity to up to 100%.

"Absent battery storage, the whole value proposition of intermittent renewable energy makes no sense at all," said Donald Sadoway, a battery researcher at MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
