Intelligent Energy Storage
NETenergy is a thermal energy storage company, based in Chicago. NETenergy has created a thermal battery using its Black Ice technology, that works much like an electrical battery, except it stores thermal energy. By utilizing NETenergy’s thermal battery to store cold energy, building owners can save 30% or more on their energy usage and reduce carbon emissions by 50%.

What we do
Thermal Energy Storage
Thermal Energy Storage addresses the problem with on-peak energy consumption. On-peak energy prices are typically 2 – 6 times higher than off-peak energy prices and NETenergy allows customers to save 50% or more on their cooling costs by shifting consumption from on-peak to off-peak. Additionally, this technology can save utilities from spending billions of dollars per year building and maintaining “peaker” power plants that are only used a few times per year.
NETenergy has been busy for the last year!
