BITZER UK Collaborates with O-Hx Ltd on Innovative EnergiVault Coolth Storage Technology

In a groundbreaking collaboration, BITZER UK and O-Hx Ltd are revolutionizing energy storage with the pioneering EnergiVault coolth storage technology. Let’s delve into the details of this innovative system that combines efficiency, sustainability, and reliability.

The EnergiVault Concept

  1. Coolth Storage: Unlike traditional energy storage systems, EnergiVault focuses on coolth storage. It generates cooling using high-efficiency BITZER open-drive screw compressors.
  2. Phase Change Material (PCM): The heart of EnergiVault lies in its ‘coolth battery’ based on phase change material. This stored cooling energy serves multiple purposes.
  3. Peak Load Support: EnergiVault seamlessly steps in during peak demand when chillers are maxed-out, ensuring uninterrupted cooling.
  4. Energy Resilience: It provides energy resilience, safeguarding operations even during chiller breakdowns or extreme temperatures.

Demonstration at Quotient Sciences

  1. Commercial Demonstration Plant: A successful pilot project at Quotient Sciences’ facility in Alnwick showcased EnergiVault’s effectiveness. It delivered significant energy cost savings by charging the coolth battery with lower-cost overnight electricity.
  2. Smooth Load-Shifting: EnergiVault’s ‘trickle-charging’ replaced inefficient chiller cycling, resulting in smoother load profiles.
  3. Environmentally Friendly: Unlike lithium batteries, EnergiVault can use all stored energy without harming future capacity.

Future Prospects

  1. Industrial Applications: Large industrial refrigeration users are keen on EnergiVault to protect production and enhance output during peak loads.
  2. Decarbonization Drive: EnergiVault aligns with the global drive to decarbonize and increase energy security.

BITZER UK and O-Hx Ltd are at the forefront of sustainable energy solutions. EnergiVault’s coolth storage technology promises a greener, more efficient future.
