Event description

Description

This free workshop will take place during the IIR International Cold Chain Conference.

CryoHub is an EU-funded project to develop and investigate the potential of large scale cryogenic energy storage at refrigerated warehouses and food factories. The innovative CryoHub technology is based on storing renewable energy as a cryogenic liquid - which in the case of this project is liquid air. This cryogen is then boiled at very low temperatures to generate electricity for on-site use or feeding the power grid during peak demand periods. The cooling effect of boiling the cryogen is employed to refrigerate industrial facilities

The 42-month research project, funded mainly through the EU’s H2020 Programme, is being run by a consortium of 14 partners (8 companies, 4 research institutes/universities and 2 NGOs). They are working together to develop an interactive hub integrating renewable energy in industrial food refrigeration and enhancing power grid sustainability. The project aims to:

  • Balance the power grid mismatch between power demand and energy generation from renewables
  • Store energy generated by renewables before supplying it back to the grid
  • Provide an affordable cooling supply during power generation
  • Increase the take up of renewable energy
  • Reduce peak power demand and help decarbonize the grid

Workshop speakers will cover:

  • Background to the CryoHub project: benefits and business models
  • The potential for CryoHub in refrigerated warehouses and cold storage facilities
  • What a CryoHub system will look like - modelling of the system and design
  • The CryoHub demonstrator and expected results
