Welcome to Enertechnos

Enertechnos is a pioneering clean-tech innovation company, dedicated to enabling ‘better electricity’ and supporting the shift to net zero. The company was founded in 2014 with the goal of developing more efficient cables for distribution grids and reducing substantial losses of energy in power grids. It is unquestionable that whenever the question involves ‘decarbonisation’ the answer involves ‘electricity’.

One of the chief causes of losses in grids is the cabling itself, with the UK having some of the highest losses in Europe. These losses will only get worse and threaten our 2050 net zero targets. This is why we invented a new concept; a cable called ‘Capacitive Transfer System’ (CTS) that reimagines the conductor core as a long linear capacitor.

Advantages of CTS

In addition to reducing energy losses and overall costs, our CTS cable has numerous advantages. This includes minimising maintenance costs, preserving natural beauty and supporting inertia and therefore grid stability.

Lower delivery losses

Resulting in lower generation costs and carbon emissions. Up to 20% more power deliverable via CTS than with conventional cable from same power source (subject to power input and load factors)

Lower capital costs

Reduced need for AC booster transformers or HVDC converter stations which can comprise up to 40% of project capex, since CTS has materially less voltage drop than existing wire and cable

Lower ongoing operating costs

Reduced maintenance requirements owing to fewer transformers and converter stations on longer runs

Expected lower earth leakage

Where pylons are unwelcome, CTS can enable longer cable-runs underground while still delivering useful power

Reactive Support

CTS’s series capacitance supports the system voltage, reducing the need for reactive power to support renewable generators

The electricity sector is going through a major transformation

The ways in which electricity is generated and consumed has changed dramatically over the last decade and this transition is expected to continue. The transmission and distribution of electricity is a fundamental part of the electricity value chain.

UK National Grid’s Future Energy Solutions (FES) annual predictions on electricity peak demand in 2050 have been increasing year-on-year. These trends point to a growing demand in energy. Bloomberg expects that by 2050, peak energy demand will increase by 170% globally from today’s figure. To support this, around $14 trillion of global grid investment is forecast and an exponential growth of renewables is foreseen.

CTS is a breakthrough and potentially disruptive technology: the first fundamental change to power cable geometry and fabrication in decades, whilst still leveraging existing cable-manufacturing technology.
