Heat battery offers low cost and low-carbon replacement for oil and LGP boilers

Caldera, a Fareham-based start-up, is being backed for success by the UK government as well as a host of venture capital groups. They are in a current round of crowdfunding and are also inviting pre-orders, as they develop their game-changing low carbon, heating technology called the “heat battery”.
In simplistic terms, the product could be described as an evolutionary progression of the old economy seven heating system. This cylinder-shaped “heat battery”, is insulated with a material called Warmstone, which is a blend of recycled metal and aggregates which weighs 1.7 tonnes and stands 1.7 meters tall.

Making use of lower-priced, off-peak electricity, usually delivered between midnight and 7 am. The battery generates heat within the “heat battery”, and this heat is stored inside the large Warmstone, insulated cylinder. Water is then piped through the insulated cylinder and fed into a central heating system and hot water tank.

With the current push towards using digital technologies to balance energy demands and allow consumers to make use of lower-priced, off-peak electricity. We believe this product will be a cost-effective replacement for oil and LGP boilers, which are being phased out to meet climate change targets.
