Nostromo, Smardt to Launch Energy Storage System

Nostromo’s IceBrick compact size and modular design enables fitting the system into unused spaces or positioning it on the roof, parking lots, or any other commercially neglected spaces.

Nostromo Energy has recently formed a technology collaboration with Smardt Chiller Group to introduce an energy storage system with the highest Round-Trip Efficiency (RTE) ever.

Nostromo Smardt Energy Storage SystemNostromo developed a novel energy storage system based on the IceBrick, a modular, encapsulated ice cold-energy storage system featuring breakthrough engineering and materials and enabling rapid freezing at high temperature with unprecedented efficiency.

“Combining the Nostromo system with the Smardt chiller will enable us to utilize the capabilities of our IceBrick to produce ice at unprecedented efficiencies,” said Yaron Ben nun, Nostromo’s Founder and CTO, “We are aiming to achieve efficiency at an ice-making mode which will be higher than the most customer’s regular chillers efficiency for delivering thermal comfort. Cold energy storage is used to shift the energy to provide relief to the grid at critical times of the day. With the Nostromo and Smardt solution, this shift can also save energy”

“Eventually, although we do have some losses through the full cycle, we still might show a total efficiency of 100%. This might become an important milestone in our quest to bring water to the heart of the discussion on the future of energy storage. We believe water must become a significant part of the energy storage landscape, for all the good reasons – to obtain a truly sustainable future to name one”

Yoram Ashery, Nostromo’s CEO said: “We are excited about partnering with Smardt, as we share the passion for innovation and breaking new frontiers, together with a strong commitment to maximizing efficiencies and minimizing carbon emissions, for our customers and this planet.”

Smardt recently launched its High-lift Chiller, the newest model of the company’s oil-free magnetic chiller line. Nostromo’s IceBrick enables the ice-building charging unit to work at its highest available efficiency.

Nostromo’s IceBrick compact size and modular design enables fitting the system into unused spaces or positioning it on the roof, parking lots, or any other commercially neglected spaces.

Smardt’s chillers are also the most compact in the industry, so together the companies offer a compact solution that can be retrofitted into existing buildings.

The partnership involves the establishment of a state-of-the-art lab to develop operating protocols for both the Smardt chiller and Nostromo System to optimize the system’s performance and to deliver the charging energy at the highest efficiency possible.

The companies also revealed their collaboration at the AHR Expo in Las Vegas, the major event of the industry.
