Startup Lumenion presents pilot for power storage with steel plates

PV Magazine 28 FEB 2020

Berlin-based energy startup Lumenion has presented the pilot of its 2.4-megawatt-hour (MWh) steel storage system in a housing project in Germany’s capital. The technology would allow the company to store excess renewable electricity – produced in especially windy and sunny periods – as heat (up to 650°C) in steel plates.

A new concept gains traction

pv magazine in cooperation with Energy Storage Europe 02 / 2018

Flexible sector coupling: To date, the energy transition has unfolded primarily in the electricity sector. This limitation should be overcome by sector coupling, which is basically electrification of the mobility and heat sectors. But this alone does not offer a complete solution. Sector coupling must be flexible. To this end, a Berlin-based startup is developing a colossal steel storage tank, and battery storage facilities are being built in Canada along a highway.
