Identification

Energy is wasted all over the world in nearly every thermal energy systems. 20 billion EUR or 250 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent green-house gases could be saved only in Europe with optimal thermal energy storages. Traditional systems store heat by changing the temperature of the water. Instead of water, the Solution HeatTank uses special biomaterials called phase change materials. By changing the phase, like melting and solidification HeatTank can store the energy in a more concentrated way, reducing storage volume by 90%, enabling energy savings of at least 20-50%, with a total return on investment of 3 to 5 years. HeatTank uses eco-friendly bio materials as Phase change materials, as recycled materials from by-products. Due to the concentrated heat storage, the storage volume is smaller, allowing clients to save more space. In addition, HeatTank can store energy on different temperatures and also increase the efficiency of the energy systems by 20-50% with a 3-5 years ROI. With HeatTank it is possible to generate energy only when it is the most efficient, store it and use it when it is less efficient to produce it.
