stable in value
Menion’s number of cycles is virtually unlimited, the life cycle of the system is far beyond 40 years. The steel,
about 40% of the investment, can be fully re-used through recycling.
Up to 95% effectiveness thanks to cogeneration
The principle of cogeneration, combined power and heat, achieves an effectiveness of up to 95% (25%
electric and 70% thermal). The heat can be instantly used for process or district heating. For reconversion,
25% to 35% of the heat is turned into power. The remaining heat, at 80°C to 120°C, can then be fed into
the local heating network.
The size and performance of Menion can be adapted to meet individual needs – all the way to the gigawatt
The LCOS (Levelized Cost of Storage) at the start is less than 4 euro cents per kilowatt hour. In the long run,
the LCOS can even be lower, at around 2 euro cents per kilowatt hour.
