Energy storage is often associated with electricity and its accumulation in batteries. However, energy is not only electricity. Heat – what Enetech specializes in, can also be stored when we have excess heat and used during increased demand.
There are five main forms of energy storage: mechanical, electrochemical, chemical, thermal and electrical. For each of them, energy storage can be implemented in different ways.
For private individuals and most enterprises, the available solutions are thermal energy storage or electricity storage in electrochemical systems (batteries). The latter are characterized by high purchase costs and a significant negative impact on the natural environment. Their service life is also definitely lower than that of thermal energy storage.
