ROSH HA’AYIN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brenmiller Energy Ltd. ("Brenmiller", "Brenmiller Energy” (TASE: BNRG, Nasdaq: BNRG), a global leader in thermal energy storage (TES), announced today a milestone in the construction of its production facility in Dimona, Israel where the Company’s bGen TES modules are manufactured. Having received the majority of equipment for the facility build-out, the Dimona facility is expected to start its initial production by May 2023. Full production capacity for up to 4,000 MWh of clean energy bGen TES modules annually is expected by the end of 2023. The equipment purchase order was financed through a non-dilutive €7.5 million credit facility with the European Investment Bank ("EIB").
“We believe Brenmiller is on track for another TES industry first—that, by the end of 2023, it will become one of the first global TES companies with an operational TES production facility that will enable it to service the growing market demand.” stated Brenmiller President and CEO Avi Brenmiller. “The impending completion of our production facility is well timed, as we expect to increase commercial orders based on our current project pipeline and the completion of pilot projects now underway.”
Brenmiller’s bGen TES system is an intelligent, scalable, and cost-effective technology that provides industrial facilities and power producers around-the-clock low-carbon heat. In addition to renewables, the bGen system can store energy generated by waste heat, biomass, and other types of clean energy for minutes, hours, or days and produce steam, hot water, or hot air that can be accessed on-demand. This provides critical reliability, protection from renewable intermittency and fluctuations in energy market prices, as well as a solution to decarbonize heat generation.
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.
