by josh perry, editor


nostromo, an innovator in encapsulated ice energy storage solutions, recently unveiled its icebrick tes (thermal energy storage cell), which uses plain water with a proprietary nucleate and is designed to be a cost-effective, behind-the-meter, storage system.

according to a press release from the company, icebrick can store and discharge the equivalent of 25 kwh of electricity powering cooling systems at peak demand. the cell weighs 2,200 pounds and measures 50x50x400 cm. it can be stored on rooftops or along exterior walls.


“icebrick's™ revolutionary design ensures the system has zero recycling issues, and with an expected cost of $250 per kwh, it reduces the cost per kwh by 80% when compared to the leading ice storage systems,” the release added.


yaron ben-nun, founder, and ceo of nostromo, said, "while the world is enamored with pricey and unsafe lithium-ion systems to store and release over-capacity electricity from the grid, we, at nostromo, have developed a system that will cost half as much as li-ion systems and won't be using any rare or poisonous materials."


ben-nun presented icebrick at the cleantech forum in san francisco at the end of january.
