Energy Rocks - Heat storage in a rock bed

EnergyRocks – heat storage in a rock bed

Watch Kurt Engelbrecht explain the EnergyRocks project.

The EnergyRocks project examines how to transform surplus electricity from wind into heat and then store it in a rock bed. The purpose is to decarbonize heat processes in industrial heating at GreenLab. More specifically, the research team wants to develop a design for a rock bed thermal energy storage for a 40 MW heating process.
