Thermal energy storage: A new business area for ERK

30. May 2016

Thermal energy storage (TES) is a growing trend and we see synergies, as ERK is well established in the industrial boiler and heater market. TES is particularly interesting for process and district heating applications, which are key markets for ERK and where we have a strong track record. We have the expertise to design thermal energy storage systems using hot water (atmospheric and pressurised), steam (various pressure levels) and thermal oil. In addition to these well-established working fluids we can also opt for advanced materials, such as zeolites.

In addition to the working fluid we can support licensees and other clients with the optimisation of the TES capacity, dispatch strategy and system configuration. To improve design times and option comparison we are currently integrating the TES design into our new in-house boiler design software.
