EXYTRON’s patented energy supply system provides the user with renewable energy in the form of electricity, heating and cooling at all times, reliably covering individual needs. The self-generated energy from PV or wind power plants is used 100% decentrally on site. The storage of large amounts of renewable electricity, which was problematic in the past, is carried out by highly efficient power-to-gas and power-to-X plants.
From hydrogen and carbon dioxide, EXYTRON catalysts produce regenerative, climate-neutral fuels such as methane (natural gas), liquefied petroleum gas, methanol, kerosene and green, non-fossil gases such as hydrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide. In this way, energy is stored without limit and is reliably available in the event of a wind lull or darkness. Furthermore, the energy can be used e.g. for mobility and other industrial applications as climate-neutral fuels and gases.
So-called “green hydrogen” has been produced for many years by electrolysis (the splitting of water into its components hydrogen and oxygen) using green electricity (hydroelectric plants, wind turbines, photovoltaic systems). However, due to its low energy density, the high safety requirements for the plants and very high costs of hydrogen technologies as well as the non-existing infrastructure, it has not been able to establish itself on the market in its pure form so far. EXYTRON has eliminated these disadvantages of hydrogen through innovative direct conversion and refinement into methane, allowing the use of well-known, low-cost and proven equipment from natural gas technology, e.g. commercially available CHP units, natural gas boilers, etc. This significantly reduces the cost and safety requirements of the equipment and, among other things, makes it economically viable for retrofitting existing buildings. The complete design of such an energy supply with pure hydrogen is about four to five times more expensive than the design with EXYTRON technology. In addition, the use of hydrogen alone can lead to acceptance problems among citizens due to the considerable risk of fire and explosion.
EXYTRON’s plants are almost infinitely scalable in size. In the area of building supply, residential complexes, commercial enterprises and even entire city quarters are in the planning stage. Already in 2017, planning also began for a unique project for the self-sufficient and emission-free supply of an entire village including a commercial area and the additional production of renewable fuels. The electrolysers, with a planned output of up to 20 MW, will use electricity from old wind turbines, among other sources, whose alternative would have been demolition after the feed-in tariff expired after 20 years of EEG. Climate-neutral CO2 from biogas plants is used to produce the fuels, which would be emitted into the atmosphere without this use.
EXYTRON’s energy factories use these local and regional resources and produce sustainable electricity, heating and cooling as well as green, emission-neutral fuels and gases, e.g. for buses, heavy-duty transport as well as ships, thus implementing the sector coupling of the electricity, heating and mobility sectors in an emission-free and climate-neutral way. In addition, other products such as non-fossil green gases are produced.
Conventional gas-fired power plants can also be retrofitted with EXYTRON technology and then operated emission-free.
In the field of supplying buildings (residential buildings, housing estates, quarters, commercial buildings, etc.) with SmartEnergyTechnology, there should be a minimum energy demand of about 200,000 kWh/a of electricity and 400,000 kWh/a of heat. In addition, the possibility of installing or using existing PV and wind power plants with an annual production of at least the electricity demand. Smaller plants are technically possible, but the specific costs increase significantly the smaller a plant becomes due to the higher volume scaling required. There are no limits to the plant sizes, industrial parks and entire city quarters can be supplied. If you are planning a corresponding project, we look forward to your inquiry by phone or contact us via our contact form.
Energy factories can be established where significant amounts of renewable energy are generated (e.g. wind and solar parks as well as hydroelectric power plants) and consumers such as towns or industrial estates can be supplied in close proximity. If you know of possible locations or are planning corresponding energy supply projects, we will be happy to receive your inquiries about these as well.
