Water Horizon aims to develop a highly innovative renewable energy solution for industrial heating and cooling applications. Thanks to innovative technology, Water Horizon (WH) is able to recover waste heat from industrial activities and distributes it at another time and in another place to a consumer as renewable heat or cold. WH technology is a mobile thermal battery. It replaces traditional cooling and heating solutions based on fossil fuels consumption, only waste heat is needed as primary energy. Each actor included in our process will get to reduce their carbon footprint and overall costs as this solution allows decentralized distribution of renewable energy at the price of fossil fuels. This process allows the battery to function as a closed loop without consumables which will make this clean energy continuously available all year round. Thus, Water Horizon performs the same functions as traditional heating networks, but without the need for underground networks.
