Azelio thermal energy storage now available for PV –In June 2018, Azelio unveiled its energy storage technology, which enables the provision of electricity from renewables around the clock.  That technology is based on a thermal energy storage system developed by Azelio… Azelio has broadened the range of uses of its unique technology, so that electricity from a wider range of renewable sources can be received and stored as thermal energy… The opportunity to use electricity generated by other renewable sources, such as solar PV and wind to heat the energy storage, now means that Azelio can complement established technologies with energy storage systems, allowing low-cost renewables-generated electricity to be produced on demand around the clock.” Source: Azelio
