Energy storage enables a renewable electrified, and fossil-free society
Energy storage is a fundamental part of a sustainable, efficient, and decarbonized future energy system. SaltX scalable long- and short-term circular energy storage solutions for cities and industries.
Heat to Heat
Store excess heat
Two major advantages of storing energy thermochemically in salt is high energy density and the possibility to release heat at very high temperatures. It enables the industry to store excess heat energy that would otherwise be wasted. The energy can then be released when needed, increasing the overall energy efficiency of the plant.
Industries that are well suited for the technology are; steel, glass, and ceramics, just to name a few.
Power to Steam
Combined heat and power systems
SaltX storage unit can store the excess electricity from the grid and release it as district heating and electricity, using the existing infrastructure. Enable your city to be powered by renewable energy and to have a reliable supply of energy all seasons.
Green industry transition
Steam is essential for many industries, for instance the process and food industry and steam is expensive and require a high level of safety. With EnerStore it is possible to store valley price electricity and release steam to the industry during peak hours.

Power to Power
EnerStore as a battery
SaltX thermochemical storage can be used as a large-scale electric battery. The technology is based on the Carnot Battery principle with one hot and one cold storage – connected to a heat pump and a heat engine.
Coal-fired power plants are history, but they can play an important role in the renewable future. The retiring coal power plants could see a new life as large-scale storage, by reusing existing grid connections, turbomachinery, silos and other infrastructure.
