Brenmiller Energy Ltd., a clean energy company that provides Thermal Energy Storage (“TES”) systems to global industrial and utility markets, yesterday announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) with Waaree Energies Ltd. (“Waaree”), India’s largest manufacturer of solar panels, to implement bGen™ TES in India. This announcement marks Brenmiller’s entrance into the Indian market, adding to the Company’s growing global presence including Israel, Europe, and the U.S.
Under the terms of the MoU, Brenmiller and Waaree will jointly explore, develop, and deploy solar-powered TES systems in India, subject to entry into a definitive agreement.
Brenmiller’s award-winning bGen TES system is a mature, scalable, and cost-effective solution that enables 24/7 renewable management for industrial processes and power production. The bGen can store energy in the form of heat for minutes, hours, or days, and produce steam, hot water, or hot air on demand. In addition to decarbonization, Brenmiller’s TES technology provides critical reliability and protection from renewable intermittency and fluctuations in energy market prices.
“We’ve seen a massive uptick in demand for our TES systems in response to climate-forward policies, rising energy costs, and challenges to reliability,” said Avi Brenmiller, president and Chief Executive Officer of Brenmiller. “Our team is thrilled to collaborate with Waaree to bring bGen TES to India’s industrial and utility markets.”
“In India, steam and other high-temperature processes for industrials are primarily powered by coal, accounting for roughly 25 percent of India’s carbon emissions,” said Hitech Doshi, chairman of Waaree. “We are focused on helping large industrial corporations, including beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, paper manufacturers, and more, to help them meet ambitious ESG goals. Partnering with Brenmiller to deploy its innovative thermal energy storage technology will enable us to significantly reduce dependence on fossil fuels.”
