Grid-Scale Electricity Storage at Lowest Possible Cost Enabled by Pumped Heat Electricity Storage
Project Innovation + Advantages:
SwRI will work to advance a pumped heat electricity storage (PHES) system model to a proof-of-concept demonstration at the 10-100’s kW scale. The PHES can store energy thermally in any location and at a competitive cost. The proposed PHES system will surpass existing energy storage technologies and capable of generating between 10 to 100 hours of electricity during discharge.
