Brenmiller Energy Ltd. (“Brenmiller”, “Brenmiller Energy” (TASE: BNRG, Nasdaq: BNRG), a global leader in thermal energy storage (TES), announced today it has signed a non-binding Term Sheet with one of the largest producers of clean energy in the world and Green Enesys Group toward a definitive agreement to jointly identify, build, and accelerate electrification by using renewable energies and Brenmiller’s TES system to electrify heat and achieve full decarbonization for their clients.
The Utility identified Brenmiller’s TES system as a leading decarbonization technology. The two companies expect to join forces with Green Enesys to accelerate TES deployments and provide a quick response to the global economy’s USD $1.7 - $3.6 trillion need for net-zero heat. Under the terms of this agreement, Brenmiller’s bGen units will be produced at its gigawatt-scale production facility in Israel. The parties have the option to implement a joint production line in Europe to be used for the Utility’s projects. The non-binding term sheet also includes the option for the Utility to become a strategic investor for a minority stake in the Company.
Brenmiller’s patented bGen™ technology enables industrial- and utility-scale decarbonization by absorbing electricity from renewables, using it to charge the storage system, and converting it into clean heat according to customers’ needs. Brenmiller’s TES technology bridges the gap between the time that renewable energy is produced and when demand peaks.
About Brenmiller Energy Ltd.
Brenmiller Energy delivers scalable thermal energy storage solutions and services that allow customers to cost-effectively decarbonize their operations. Its patented bGen thermal storage technology enables the use of renewable energy resources, as well as waste heat, to heat crushed rocks to very high temperatures. They can then store this heat for minutes, hours, or even days before using it for industrial and power generation processes. With bGen, organizations have a way to use electricity, biomass and waste heat to generate the clean steam, hot water and hot air they need to mold plastic, process food and beverages, produce paper, manufacture chemicals and pharmaceuticals or drive steam turbines without burning fossil fuels.
