Azelio to supply energy storage units to Wee Bee Ltd

Azelio AFAzelio has won an order worth US$1.2mn for eight units with 1.3 MWh clean electricity supply of its long duration energy storage, TES.POD, from South African-based farming company Wee Bee Ltd

Azelio’s TES.POD system, in combination with solar PV, will reduce annual CO2 emission by 323 tonnes compared to the grid, as well as securing energy supply around the clock. The system is planned for delivery by end of 2021 and the installation start up and commissioning will be carried out by Azelio in collaboration with its partner Alec Energy.

“It is important for the farming community in South Africa to gain access to affordable and reliable energy to ensure their facilities can operate as effectively as possible. Our TES.POD system will secure clean power for around the clock energy supply to Wee Bee Ltd’s farming activities, while allowing them to focus their strategy and capital on farming activities and not energy related issues,” said Jonas Eklind, CEO of Azelio.

Azelio’s energy storage system TES.POD is aiming to make renewable energy accessible and affordable at all hours of the day. The system stores energy, for example from solar PV, as heat in recycled aluminum.

The stored energy is dispatched on demand to a Stirling engine for supply of electricity and usable heat, at all hours of the day with zero emissions. The farming community in South Africa is extensive and its energy related challenges are comprehensive. On top of unreliable, fossil-driven, and expensive electricity, coal combustion is used for heating.
