Cheesecake Energy’s eTanker energy storage system is a stationary, medium to long-duration energy storage solution which delivers cheap, reliable, efficient energy storage in a modular, containerised package.
The technology stores energy in the form of heat and pressurised air, re-tasking ex-service truck engines to become zero-emission electrical power-conversion machines. The resulting system does not use diesel or any fuel. It is safe, straightforward to operate, has a lifetime of up to 25 years and can deliver turnaround efficiencies of around 70%.
We’ve already been successful testing our prototype system in a lab environment and will soon integrate the prototype system into a live customer site for the charging of an electric vehicle fleet. Our pilot programme will allow us to test and demonstrate the reliability of our technology with a variety of customers with unique storage needs and challenges, establishing crucial field experience to lay the groundwork for our commercial expansion.
