“This technology is about storing energy in the form of heat, which is important because over 50% of global energy is used as heat, which emits carbon dioxide. So, this [process] helps to turn a renewable into heat.”
Congratulations to the Birmingham Centre for Energy Storage, University of Birmingham and Jinhe Energy. They took home the Energy, Research Project and Outstanding Achievement Awards at the IChemE Global Awards 2019 for their project, ‘The NexGen-TEST Project’.
Over a 10 year-period, the Birmingham Centre for Energy Storage, University of Birmingham and Jinhe Energy have collaboratively developed a novel environmentally-friendly technology that allows energy to be converted to heat and stored.
Creating a renewable energy and storing it safely stops carbon dioxide being emitted into the atmosphere, and could be key to addressing climate change regarding the storage of surplus energy.
