Aluminium smelters fitted with EnPot technology are better positioned to secure cheaper power, maximise operating performance, and reduce their CO2 emissions profile by operating like a virtual power plant.Read More
An EnPot enabled aluminium smelter provides power companies with a low-cost, large-scale 'virtual battery' that can provide large volumes of instant power back to the grid.Read More
EnPot enables Governments to reach their clean energy targets faster by providing a reliable energy source to support intermittent renewable energy.Read More
EnPot technology helps to reinvent smelters into virtual batteries capable of providing valuable storage and back-up power to the world’s electricity grids in times of high energy demand or lower than normal generation. This is achieved at a lower cost than other storage options. EnPot supports the world's electricity grids to adopt variable renewable energy faster by providing a reliable backstop.
EnPot has been operating on a commercial scale at TRIMET’S Essen smelter in Germany since May 2019.
With EnPot, smelters can use 30% more or less energy without disturbing the delicate heat balance required to make aluminium. This new-found flexibility makes smelters more compatible with the variable electricity supply provided by renewable generation. The technology acts as a giant climate control system capable of maintaining a precise heat balance, even with a fluctuating electricity supply.Read More
