Neothermal Energy Storage is a thermal storage innovator, helping homeowners save money on their heating costs. The core technology inside Neothermal ETS (electric thermal storage) was developed by Louis Desgrosseilliers during his PhD studies at Dalhousie University. We formed Neothermal Energy Storage in 2015 to commercialize this technology and offer consumers a better way to keep warm.
The heater stores heat using a salt hydrate: sodium acetate trihydrate. This commonly used and food-safe material is found in many products already, such as reusable hand-warmers you find in sporting goods stores and a seasoning used in potato chips.
Neothermal ETS reduces energy costs for homeowners heating with furnaces and boilers. It also provides peak-shifting for utilities, allowing electricity grids to operate more efficiently and improve the management and capacity for renewable electricity generation. With Neothermal ETS, homeowners can take their first step in converting from fossil fuels for heat and hot water to electricity.
At Neothermal Energy Storage, we are committed to improving everyday living and have created a solution to make heating more affordable and energy conscious.
