If we are to overcome the current plans to electrify individual heating, the electricity grid becomes a bottleneck, heat storage can flatten the curve. The problem is universal to communities that wish to have post-combustion heat production.
We can’t store energy for private house owners in a neat way. It feels huge and cumbersome to install in the home (takes the space of both a washer and a dryer). Low market penetration. existing technologies are not user friendly.
Heat storage is mainly a energy production/Delivery issue, which makes the problem a part of the companies issues.
We are looking for energy storage techniques.
We need Individual housing energy storage.
Not brint solutions (Ørsted). E.ON is B2B and B2C focused.
If the heat density cannot exceed water, or if the expenses pr heat density exceeds water it’s likely to be the most limiting factor.
