Magaldi Green Energy guest of the Smart City radio format hosted by journalist Maurizio Melis on Radio 24. Listen to the podcast of the episode entitled “A battery of sand to accumulate heat”!
"The key to making possible the adoption on a very large scale of CO2-free but discontinuous sources, such as the sun and the wind, - says the introduction of the podcast - lies in the development of energy storage technologies to draw to when renewables do not produce enough. This need, which is still limited today, will grow rapidly over the next few years. In addition to the electrochemical storage technologies, which now dominate the scenario, other approaches are being developed, including thermal storage technologies such as MGTES (Magaldi Green Thermal Energy Storage), patented by Magaldi Green Energy (MGE), a start-up from Magaldi Group, industrial group specialized in systems for handling high temperature materials. We speak of a sort of ‘thermal battery’: a system capable of using simple silica sand to store, for several days, large quantities of high temperature heat (up to 600C°), which can then be used as a thermal fluid in industrial processes or to produce electricity".

Magaldi is among stakeholders of ENEA - General States of Concentrated Solar-Thermal
14 June 2022
Starting today - 14 June - in Rome the "General States of Concentrated Solar-Thermal (CST) - The role of the sector in the ecological transition", a meeting organized by ENEA as part of the European project HORIZON-STE, supporting the Implementation of the Initiative for Global Leadership in CST. The event involves the most influential Italian stakeholders in the concentrated solar-thermal sector to discuss together the state and development prospects according to the goals of the Green Deal. One of the main purposes of the event is the consolidation of the national network of the main players in the sector to respond in a coordinated way to the new challenges towards the full exploitation of the potential of technology to supply clean thermal energy to industrial players.Read More

LOG.I.CO. Seminar: MGTES is a case of thermal energy storage system for decarbonisation and energy security
07 June 2022
Through the REPower EU plan, dedicated to energy issues, the European Commission highlighted the urgent need for greater investments in renewable sources and energy efficiency to reduce the current European geopolitical dependence. To achieve these goals, all the main industrial sectors are now asked to exceed a decarbonisation threshold up to 60 per cent. In this scenario, what role can industrial energy communities play and what are the most suitable tools and strategies to encourage the self-production of renewable energy? All topics that will be explored tomorrow - Wednesday 8 June starting at 10.15 - during the seminar "Industrial Energy Communities - Tools for SMEs and industrial companies consortia for energy autonomy" promoted by the LOG-I-CO Association – Logistics, Industry, Commerce. The seminar will be attended by Letizia Magaldi, Executive Vice President of Magaldi Green Energy, with a speech entitled “Thermal energy storage systems for decarbonisation and energy security: the MGTES case”.Read More
