RSP System in partnership with bGen™ offers a patented high-temperature thermal energy storage unit stored in solid state material [crushed rocks]. Charged electrically or thermally, the system can provide steam, hot water or hot air on demand. This sustainable TES technology enables emission reduction for power plants, industrial and commercial facilities.
The bGen unit is charged from different renewable sources: electrical, such as PV, wind, or grid at off-peak; Thermal sources such as biomass, flue-gas, heat recovery, or any combination of these inputs. This energy is captured using electrical heaters and gas piping which runs through the storage modules and transfer its heat to the storage media at high temperature of up to 1400°F. In parallel or hours later, steam is discharged to meet customer’s demand.
Electricity from renewable energy sources such as PV, wind or directly from a grid during off-peak hours, when electric rates are low, can be used to charge the bGen. The electrical input is converted to high temperature heat using embedded electrical heaters in the storage modules. No gases or emissions are produced in this process. The system can thermally charge while simultaneously providing steam or hot water, as needed. The system is designed to always maintain a constant steam pressure. Having two independent cycles inside the unit offers full control and flexibility for charging and discharging aligned with your process.
Heat recovery, biomass combustion, CHP and other external thermal sources can be used to charge the bGen. Recovered heat is efficiently transferred to the storage media. Stored heat can also be augmented with imbedded electric resistive heating elements providing optimal flexibility to match steam or hot water demands.
