Long-duration energy storage provides clean power 24 hours a day
Agriculture employs over a billion people and generates food worth USD 1.3 trillion every year (WWF). It has a considerable impact on our world economy, the development of societies, and biodiversity. Simply put, agriculture is one of the most important frontiers for a clean and efficient energy transformation. With the implementation of reliable and affordable energy from renewable sources, we can create sustainable food and industrial crop production.
Agriculture is, in many ways, an electricity intensive process. From lighting, heating and cooling to ventilation, irrigation, grain drying and efficient feed lines. The sector has a great dependence on reliable, controllable, and affordable clean power – at all hours of the day.
Farming often takes place in remote areas which lack access to consistent energy around the clock.
TES.POD operates off-grid, with a reliable and continuous electricity and heat supply at all hours of the day.
To avoid downtime, farms tend to use wood fuel and diesel generators for securing energy supply.
TES.POD has a low environmental impact, with zero CO2 emissions and is 99% recyclable.
On-grid means fluctuating tariffs and high fixed costs.
TES.POD effectively lowers energy costs.
Lack of access to a reliable electricity supply is an obstacle for expansion.
TES.POD can be co-owned by several farms, and electricity and heat can be distributed to multiple owners.
Wildfires or other disasters can damage grid infrastructure, leading to connection delays and interruptions.
TES.POD enables farmers to gain energy independence through a localised supply, while hedging electricity prices and reducing network charges.
A rural tea factory has elevated energy costs, comprised of power purchased from unreliable grids, and wood fuel for the boilers that dry the tea. Azelio’s TES.POD replaces costly energy tariffs, eliminating power outages while also reducing the need for wood fuel.
Replacing unreliable grids and polluting fuel with Azelio’s long-duration thermal energy storage is cost competitive, reliable and sustainable.
Worked example: An Azelio TES.POD cluster of 40 units in combination with solar PV. Considered 4,468 MWh annual energy baseload demand. Local conditions: GHI: 2,001 kWh/M2/year.
