Alfa Laval to develop SCO2OP-TES

Alfa Laval has joined forces with 16 European companies and academic institutions in a pioneering consortium aimed at developing next-generation Power-to-heat energy storage technology. Known as SCO2OP-TES, this initiative is poised to revolutionize the Thermal Energy Storage (TES) industry, offering cost-effectiveness, grid stability, and continuous industrial heat supply through renewable energy sources. Crucially, SCO2OP-TES aligns with the European Union’s strategy to accelerate the transition towards renewable energy sources and decarbonization in the European energy market.

Aligned with the ambitious REPowerEU Plan, which targets 1236 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030, SCO2OP-TES emerges as a pivotal component in realizing this vision. As emphasized in the “Fit for 55” package, achieving this target necessitates effective energy storage mechanisms to ensure grid stability and continuous utilization of renewable energy sources.

Alfa Laval’s involvement in SCO2OP-TES is centered on the development and delivery of innovative and efficient heat exchangers. These components are integral to the thermal energy storage process and are poised to play a crucial role in the success of the new technology.
