Swedish company Azelio AB (FRA:4AZ) last week announced the performance of its energy storage system has been validated by certification body DNV, which means larger projects using the technology will be able to get financing.
DNV performed a due diligence of the technology, production, R&D and Azelio test facilities. As part of the validation process, the TES.POD energy storage system was charged with 100 kW for 6 hours and then left producing electricity via a Stirling engine at the system's nominal power of 13 kW for 13 hours. After 13 hours, it still had several hours of remaining production capacity.
“This further strengthens the competitiveness of the solution as a long duration energy storage system, allowing for intermittent renewable energy from, for example, solar and wind, to be in line with demand and closing the 24-hour circle with clean energy,” Azelio said.
This December, the company is initiating shipments of the TES.POD to customers in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, and Coligny, South Africa. The assembly of the Stirling engine takes place in Uddevalla, Sweden, while the assembly of the system's storage unit happens in Vaggeryd, Sweden.
