One of the biggest challenges around renewable energy generation is the issue of uncertainty around controlling the timing of electricity production. However, Energy Storage technology helps balance supply and demand, making supply more reliable. Brazed plate heat exchanger technology is important in commercializing these applications and providing efficient, compact, and reliable heat transfer and precise temperature control.
This primarily addresses the BES (Battery Energy Storage), TES (Thermal Energy Storage), LAES (Liquid Air Energy Storage), CAES (Compressed Air Energy Storage), and ETES (Electro-thermal Energy Storage) technologies.
Decarbonization without compromising energy availability
Energy storage enables electricity systems to remain in balance despite variations in wind and solar availability, allowing for cost-effective deep decarbonization while maintaining reliability. This is essential to several industries and sectors such as battery production, hydroelectricity, thermal energy storage, liquified and compressed air, utility companies, and others.
Energy storage is an essential component to decarbonizing energy infrastructure and transitioning to cleaner energy solutions with renewable energy sources, rather than fossil-fuel sources.
In a market where most suppliers of compact heat exchangers are challenged by the capacities and pressures required, SWEP offers a superior portfolio of brazed plate heat exchangers, where you need fewer units, resulting in a cheaper and simpler system layout.
A fit for multiple purposes
We have extensive experience in dimensioning heat exchangers as critical components for multi-megawatt energy storage (thermal, compressed or liquefied air, and pumped heat) as well as for the various natural gas technologies needed for power-to-gas (P2G) plants. In a market where most suppliers of compact heat exchangers are challenged by the capacities and pressures required, we offer a superior product portfolio. With SWEP´s brazed plate heat exchangers, you need fewer units, resulting in a cheaper and simpler system layout.
Our industrial handbook describes hydraulic oil coolers, engine and transmission oil coolers, cogeneration systems, ORC, air dryers, circulating chillers and deionized water cooling systems. For each application, there are many different layouts and solutions.
