The Issue

Project Innovation

The project aims to enable the electrification of industrial processes using renewable energy such as solar PV-assisted electrotechnology integrated with low-cost sulfur electric thermal energy storage. The proposed research and development activities and pilot testing will validate the capability of molten sulfur thermal electric storage to store electricity and discharge heat in the temperature range of 120 to 250 degrees Celsius for various industrial applications including process heat, cooling, and electricity generation.
