1414 Degrees' process can store 500 kWh of energy in a 70-centimeter cube of molten silicon -- about 36 times as much energy as Tesla's 14KWh Powerwall 2 lithium ion home storage battery in about the same space, the company points out.
The device stores electrical energy by using it to heat a block of pure silicon to melting point – 1414 degrees Celsius. It discharges through a heat-exchange device such as a Stirling engine or a turbine, which converts heat back to electrical energy, and recycles waste heat to lift efficiency. The devices could increase the revenue of a wind farm by 25 pct, through increased output and exploiting higher wholesale prices when the wind isn't blowing. For a hydroponic farm, it can provide heat as well as electricity, according to the company.
1414 Degrees also reports it has raised $500,000 of a $2 million seed capital issue and is in talks with a hydroponic herb farm and wind farm suppliers about pilot commercial scale trials of its technology.

WE Tech's flexible and cost-effective lithium-ion battery based energy storage solution provides an energy reserve that is used for electrical load peak shaving as well as energy for black-out prevention.
The system can be used as a spinning reserve to avoid black-out and to decrease the usage of generators on low load during maneuvering. It can be also used as peak shaving to avoid the unnecessary start of additional generator sets for short increase in loads.
