Efficient and scalable storage technology will be key to unlocking the full potential of renewable energy sources. While recent developments have significantly increased the capacity of many modern wind, tidal and solar energy farms, there’s still no changing the fact that most green technologies are inherently intermittent and seasonal.
As the International Energy Agency point out in Net Zero By 2050: A Roadmap For The Global Energy Sector, pre-existing energy infrastructure will not accommodate the inherent variability of these new energy sources.
But finding a viable alternative is challenging. Notwithstanding the costs of mining and carbon generated by their manufacture, even the very best lithium ion batteries are inadequate – and engineering more creative solutions to the energy storage problem requires support from domain experts in a number of fields.
Fully committed to making the renewable energy transition a reality, we’re working with several partners to pioneer technologies that are designed to improve the efficiency of various energy storage projects.
In fact, we’re currently working with national and international partners to build the heat transfer equipment that will make it possible to build commercially viable thermal or compressed air batteries. These are pioneering technologies at the forefront of the green energy transition.
At The Forefront Of The Green Energy Revolution
With over 84 years of industry experience, Glacier Energy has the specialist knowledge required to manufacture custom heat transfer equipment using exotic metals like inconel or titanium. As one of the most inventive engineering teams in the industry, we’re the perfect partner for any green energy storage project.
Irrespective of whether you’re at the very beginning of the design process, need to develop a working prototype for laboratory testing or want to refine a developed green energy storage solution with a view to making it more efficient or viable, we would encourage you to get in touch with our engineering team.
We’re always interested in supporting our clients to pioneer new renewable solutions. We enjoy developing and building long-term relationships with companies that share our commitment to achieving the UK government’s net zero targets and want to further progress the UK’s green energy infrastructure.
This extends to university research teams, joint ventures and consortiums, green energy companies or oil and gas majors looking to transition towards renewable energy generation.
