Tempo and Brenmiller to replace fossil fuel boilers with Thermal Energy Storage system

Brenmiller Energy, a clean energy company that provides Thermal Energy Storage (TES) systems to global industrial and utility markets, has signed a contract with Tempo Beverages Ltd. (Tempo) to replace the beverage manufacturer’s heavy fuel oil boilers at its plant in Netanya, Israel, with Brenmiller’s 32MWh bGen™ ZERO thermal energy storage system. Tempo, partially owned by Heineken International B.V., is one of Israel’s largest producers and distributors of beverages for brands including Heineken and Pepsi.

Brenmiller’s bGen ZERO system that will be installed at the Tempo plant will produce sustainable process steam using solar photovoltaic energy and off-peak grid power when electricity rates are most affordable. Brenmiller estimates that using thermal energy storage in place of fossil fuel boilers will eliminate the use of approximately 2,000 tons of heavy fuel oil annually and mitigate over 6,200 tons of carbon emissions each year. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

“It is absolutely critical that industrial manufacturers, like those that produce our favourite beverages, eliminate emissions from their processes. But decarbonisation cannot come at the expense of a business’s bottom line,” said Avi Brenmiller, Chairman and CEO of Brenmiller Energy. “The bGen ZERO system and our flexible delivery method unlocks a new, more affordable pathway to decarbonisation for Tempo. Together, we are setting a new standard for sustainable operations in the food and beverage manufacturing industry.”

“Steam is crucial to power our beverage manufacturing processes, and also one of the main factors contributing to our local carbon footprint,” said Daniel Bar, CEO of Tempo. “We’re taking a big step towards implementing our decarbonisation goals with Brenmiller’s novel thermal energy storage technology.”

Brenmiller’s TES technology addresses growing industrial market demand for sustainable heat. The bGen ZERO boasts 99% charging efficiency and 97% cycle efficiency when turning power into heat and offers a mature, scalable, and cost-effective way to electrify industrial process power and enable 24/7 renewable management.
