The carbon based energy-fade out has been decided. Germany, Europe, but also many other countries are rapidly expanding renewables. As the number of energy producers increases, so does the need to balance energy production and energy use. The core element of these balancing processes is energy storage, whether electrical, thermal or chemical. Some systems pay off on a small scale. But if we now think the buffers through for 80% renewables, then easily scalable and cost-effective systems will win the race. In particular, thermal storage systems are an exciting means of buffering huge amounts of energy and generating cold, compressed air, process heat, heating and service water as well as electricity by coupling a wide variety of "energy converters". Compared to classic battery storage systems, capex and opex are many times lower, which makes high-temperature heat storage systems one of the top technologies for future.
