Ryan Kennedy of PV Magazine writes on Rondo Energy’s high heat batteries.
- Rondo Energy has closed on $22 million in funding for its renewable energy heat battery that is aiming to reduce industrial emissions.
- The battery stores wind and solar energy at temperatures of over 1200° Celsius which can then be used to create products that require high temperatures to be produced, such as cement and steel.
- Globally around 1/3 of emissions can be attributed to industrial processes. Rondo’s innovation could meaningfully reduce emissions for one of the world’s most carbon-intensvie sectors.
“The system is designed to pull energy from solar, wind, and the energy grid, charging the battery intermittently, but delivering continuous heat. Rondo said the battery bricks are made of safe, widely available materials.”
