  • Company: Kyoto utvikler en innovativ conteinerbasert løsning for termisk energilagring, for å generere damp etter behov i industrielle prosesser.

Kyoto is pleased to announce the signing of its first commercial contract for the Heatcube thermal battery solution under a battery leasing (BaaS) agreement with Aalborg Forsyning in Denmark.

According to the contract, the Heatcube will be installed at Nordjyllandsværket power plant outside of Aalborg as a commercial demonstration unit. The thermal battery is under construction and expected to be operational early 2022. Heatcube will be a part of Nordjyllandsværket and Aalborg Varme’s program to test and introduce new clean energy solutions and phase out coal, since the energy input is electricity sourced from the grid. Aalborg Forsyning wants to play a central role in the development and testing of new, green solutions, says Jesper Høstgaard-Jensen, COO at Aalborg Forsyning. The Heatcube will be the first installation in our green test center, so this is a key milestone for both us and for Kyoto. We see great perspectives in the Heatcube, but first we want to test and verify that it works with district heating, Høstgaard-Jensen concludes.

The agreement represents our initial proof of commercialization of the Heatcube and a milestone for decarbonising industrial heating, says Christopher Kjølner, CEO at Kyoto. We look forward to start supplying heat to Nordjyllandsværket, supporting its long-term energy transition, and we see great potential for expanding our installation over time, Kjølner concludes.
