MGTES: the most groundbreaking LDES solution for green power and industry decarbonization

Supporting the deployment of Long Duration Energy Storage, the LDES Council can contribute to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040 and limit the rise in global temperatures to 1,5° Celsius, promoting global decarbonitazion and driving innovation in the power and industrial sector.

Energy storage technologies represented by the LDES Council – a CEO-led organization set up by McKinsey - includes mechanical, electrochemical, chemical and thermal storage technologies, all crucial for a real transition to 100% renewables. 

As Technology Providers of LDES Council, Magaldi Green Energy – Italian startup of Magaldi Power – innovates on thermal technologies, energy stored through heating for later release of electricity and green heat.

Among LDES solutions for power and industrial sector, the most groundbreaking is MGTES, a thermal energy storage technology based on a fluidized bed of solid particles of sand, capable of absorbing both heat and electricity at the input and release it on demand.

In a future world supported more than 50% by renewable energies – says Letizia Magaldi, Executive Vice President of Magaldi Green Energy - the energy system would count on wind, photovoltaic, csp and different energy storage systems - complementary and not in competition with each other - such as hydroelectric, electrochemical and thermal storage solutions. The latter are particularly low cost and innovative: thermal energy batteries can accumulate energy up to over 150 hours to build a more robust decarbonization path and produce green heat to help industry decarbonization”.

According to LDES Council Report - authoritative analysis of long duration energy storage based on data and research provided by council members – over 260 LDES projects have been announced worldwide at different commercial stages and thermal LDES accounts for the largest share of the total announced capacity (60 percent), attributable primarily to a number of molten salt storage facilities for concentrated solar power (CSP) in the megawatt (MW) scale.

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.

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”.
