Decentralised solar thermal system for industries

Decentralised solar thermal system for industries

Traditionally, industries use electricity, high speed diesel or furnace oil to achieve process heat temperatures ranging from 70 to 120 °C. Aspiration Energy has developed a solution to meet low and mid temperature process heat demand through decentralized energy generation based on a solar thermal system. Although solar collectors generally heat up to about 70°C, Aspiration’s innovations in fluid pressure, as well as system and module design, have been able to achieve temperatures of up to 120 °C.

Design of small-scale concentrated solar power plants

Design of small-scale concentrated solar power plants

In a project called 'Solarbosch', Enerbosh is developing small-scale concentrated solar power tower (CSP-T) plants, with ranges from 0.5 to 3 MWe for power generation or 1 to 10 MWh for heat processes on a 24/7 basis.

Current CSP-T plants use molten salts as heat transfer fluid (HTF) and storage medium, reaching temperatures up to 560 °C. This is only profitable at very large scales due to the high investment required. In this project the CSP-T plant uses air as HTF, which can easily exceed 1000 °C. The heat storage medium is copper slag, a Chilean mining industry by-product (low cost), with ideal heat storage properties up to 1,000 °C.

Disaggregation and Predictor Services

Disaggregation and Predictor Services

Twingz detects potential fire and/or water damage before it occurs and provides a fully transparent picture of your energy consumption, monitoring individual appliances, based on the end-user’s electricity and water meters. Using data disaggregation and machine learning, twingz aims to make power and water consumption transparent and controllable, as well as predictable and therefore safe. The machine learning prediction can detect discrepancies in usage patterns  and therefore give warnings about possible malfunction and potential damage. At the same time, usage data is continuously available to end-users.

Doubling biopower plant electrical efficiency

Today's established technology for bio power is the steam cycle, in which 30 percent of the energy input results in electricity, the remainder being heat and energy losses. Bio power plants are therefore primarily heating plants and, secondly, producers of electricity. Phoenix Biopower's technology has a completely different thermodynamic process. The first step is that the fuel is gasified under high pressure together with steam. The gas formed then drives a gas turbine where steam is used to optimize combustion. With this technology, efficiency is doubled, and electricity can be produced with up to 60 percent of the energy input.
