Energy Vault 2017
TI
formation
Energy production & distribution & storage (incl.tool production) [ Energy storage ] Energy storage other than batteries
The Energy Vault storage solution operates with bricks that are lifted to create a tower causing the energy to be stored in the elevation gain, when the bricks are then returned to the ground the kinetic energy from the falling brick is turned back into electricity. Specially engineered control software is used to ensure the bricks are placed in exactly the right location each time. The system is modular and flexible with each plant having a capacity of between 10 and 35MWh and a power output of between 2 and 5MW. The system is ideally suited to longer duration storage but with very fast response times can also be used to deliver short and medium term.
EnergyXploit 2018
ZH
formation
Energy usage, efficiency & prosumption [ Heating and cooling energy ] Cooling technology, Geothermal energy, Heating in buildings
EnergyXploit heats and cools down buildings in a more efficient way using energy piles and deep drilling applications as their key geothermic energy sources with or without combination of solar energy. In their business field “renovation of existing buildings” they replace oil / gas heating systems through generating geothermic energy with or without the combination of solar energy and they install a cooling and heating system which is later fixed to walls and covers. Thus they play a crucial part in reducing CO2. In their strategic business unit “new buildings”, they provide total energy solutions. Finally, they offer strategic and operative consulting services to optimize energy efficiency and reducing CO2 along the supply chain. They also help their customers to raise funds. Following a systemic approach, they optimize the complete system energy pile / deep drilling heat pipes – heat pump – solar / photovoltaic unit including process measuring and control technology. As they integrate their strategic project partners right from the beginning in the planning phase of a construction project they reduce interfaces and increase efficiency thus they offer professional project management in combination with a systemic (consulting) approach.
