This fall, Lancey Energy Storage, a startup housed at Phelma’s MINATEC location, installed around a hundred of its smart radiators for field testing. The radiators are equipped with lithium batteries connected to a communicating meter to store energy during off -peak hours for use during peak demand. The technology behind the radiators is protected by three patents.
The data gathered during field testing has been very similar to what was observed in the laboratory, which is very encouraging. The radiators were installed by the local public housing authority and intermunicipal government, with excellent results in the form of lower energy consumption and savings on utility bills. Lancey Energy Storage plans to sell 2,000 of the radiators this year and 10,000 in 2018—a great start for this startup!
