An Israeli company, Brenmiller Energy has devised a new energy storage system that it says is an alternative to other solar technologies and will help provide clean electricity at a competitive price.




Israeli firm, Brenmiller Energy claims that it has overcome one of the biggest obstacles to widespread adoption of solar power systems—that of storage.

The company was founded in 2012, by Avi Brenmiller, former CEO of Siemens CSP and Solel. The company is focused on developing groundbreaking solar technologies and has over 100 people working for it in research and development.

Brenmiller Energy has developed the bCell™ System – a modular solar steam generation product that is a new concept providing real dispatchable energy.

The system enables the production of stable and continuous steam, regardless of the sunlight available, and even works at night. The steam is then used to power a steam turbine, which transforms the energy into usable electricity.

Unlike other solar cell technology, Brenmiller's system introduces the step of capturing and storing heat produced superheating their proprietary material with the sun.


"Storage is the name of the game. We will have this technology at conventional fuel's numbers, with the same availability around the clock."


"Storage is the name of the game," says Brenmiller. "We will have this technology at conventional fuel's numbers, with the same availability around the clock."

The company claims their system operates at grid parity.

According to the company, the bCell™ System is designed for high availability, rapid deployment and easy maintenance. It is scalable and can provide customized solutions to various energy demands.
