Miscibility Gap Alloy (MGA) Thermal Energy Storage

November 2, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Australia is at the forefront of a global transition towards renewable and intermittent power supply. South Australia in particular has the world’s largest uptake of rooftop solar, which requires rapid adaptation of our grid to maintain energy security. A key part of the required solution is energy storage over a 4 to 24 hour duration, since the sub-4 hour market is dominated by lithium batteries. MGA are proposing a solution for this longer storage, which has the necessary storage performance, as well as being cost effective and resulting in low emissions. This presentation will cover the operating principle of an MGA storage block, comparing it with competing energy storage media, and how these blocks stack into large scale energy storage systems for the key use cases of industrial process heat and electricity generation.
