Steam Energy Labs

What initiative/project/organization would you like to share?

Grid DER / energy storage by retrofits for domestic water heaters (DWH).

How is it helping advance the low carbon transition?

Emissions from each Electric DWH are about 3.5 TCO2eq/year (data available). With aggregated grid connectivity the device offsets ~45% of GHG; serves grid to shift/firm renewables, saves energy and bills for consumer / landlord, improves grid reliability. The technology has been tested; reviewed and is being promoted in cooperation with 2 NY university labs, 2 grid operators and now pilots are being developed outside of Ontario.

How can others get involved? What type of support are you looking for?

We are looking for cooperation with energy distributors and property managers / landlords for pilot deployment.
