Oslo, Norway, 24 April 2023 – Kyoto Group today published its 2022 Annual Report and will provide a live business update on the commercialization of its Heatcube thermal energy storage solution.
“2022 was a year of tremendous progress for Kyoto. We installed the first commercial Heatcube, built a strong commercial pipeline, launched the second-generation Heatcube and significantly strengthened the organization. This formed the foundation for the recently announced cooperation with a world-leading renewable energy company, providing us with game-changing market access in 2023,” says Camilla Nilsson, CEO of Kyoto Group, and adds:
“As we have progressed as a company, the case for decarbonizing industrial heat has also become even more compelling during 2022. Radical political change is taking place to change the world’s CO2 trajectory, and the necessary growth of wind and solar is impossible to sustain without energy storage. Half of the world’s energy is used for heat, and half of that again is for industrial process heat. This illustrates Kyoto’s huge potential market.”

- First commercial Heatcube at Nordjyllandsværket constructed
- Commercial pipeline of 2 100 MWh storage developed
- 7 LoIs for Heatcubes signed
