Project Proposal

We propose a micro-TES at low temperature and high density. The micro-TES will be coupled to existing/new PVs and heat pumps so as to lower dependence to Russian gas. Micro-TES will be charged with PVs with surplus electricity. Our solution will also help reduce the electricity consumption of heat pumps.
• There is no similar product on the market. Our solution supplements PVs and Heat Pumps, it is safe (low temperature, the micro-TES tank is NOT pressurised, no fire hazard: phase change material is salt) and environmentally friendly (placed underground).
• This technology is poised to replace or supplement the low-temperature solar water heaters placed on the rooftop.
• Our marketing strategy follows the track of the very successful PV marketing philosophy: ONE SIZE FITS ALL PROJECTS
