As of August 29th, 2019 KuneVerda has signed a cooperation agreement with Sigma Energy Storage from Canada for representing the unique HT-CAES solution in the Netherlands. The HT-CAES (Hybrid Thermal Compressed Air Energy Storage) solution is an innovative storage system for storage of excess sustainable power during high production hours, releasing the power when it is needed at peak moments.
The Sigma HT-CAES solution provides industrial facilities and grid providers with a low cost, high capacity buffer of electricity reducing costs (peak-shaving) and the need to update net capacity.
Sigma Energy Storage contributes to the global fight against climate change by providing clean energy storage technology that will reduce fossil fuel consumption and facilitate the adoption of intermittent renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and tidal power.
Sigma Energy Storage and its scalable technology have been recognized by several innovation and entrepreneurship prizes in the field of environment and sustainable development. In 2014 Sigma was honored at the Quebec Entrepreneurship Awards. In 2015, a fully-functional Alpha prototype was completed. In 2016, Sigma Energy Storage secured Sustainable Development Technologies Canada funding, won the ENERGY GLOBE National Award for Canada, and was a finalist at the London-based EI Awards (Environment) and Quebec’s ADRIQ Innovation Gala (Green Innovation). In 2017 Sigma brought home two Accolades awards (Montreal West Island Chamber of Commerce) – High Technology & Innovation and Sustainable Development.
