ABOUT
OMEGA INNOVATIONS

Omega Innovations’ mission is to provide customers with state-of-the-art,
innovative and highly cost-effective intelligent thermal energy storage by building a cleaner,
smarter and safer distributed energy infrastructure.

Omega Innovations develops intelligent and innovative thermal energy storage solutions that can be seamlessly integrated with existing HVAC equipment and industrial process cooling installations using chilled water, transforming them into efficient cooling systems. Our ICE - ON™ energy storage is a low-cost, long-life, safe and high-performance asset that improves flexibility and reliability of the grid and reduces electricity consumption of energy-intensive cooling systems. Installing the ICE - ON™ system lowers electricity bills for businesses and provides stability and resilience for the grid, while at the same time reducing harmful carbon emissions.

Technology

Cool, clean, in control

The patent pending core technology of the ICE - ON™ is a result of years of R&D work. Its uniqueness lies in the innovative design of the heat exchangers, the first of its kind that allow for cyclical removal of ice and its accumulation with unvarying compressor performance and without sacrificing the efficiency of the unit. The ICE - ON™ effectively levels energy loads and shifts energy usage from peak to off-peak periods, when electrical costs are the lowest.

The system also reduces the LCOE (levelized cost of electricity) of renewable energy processes and accommodates the implementation of renewable energy sources. It is scalable, reduces electricity consumption along with cost and provides stability and resilience for the grid, making it a useful asset to both utilities and businesses. We believe that energy storage is only as valuable as the platform that is used to control and monitor it. Our ICE - ON™ systems are equipped with cutting-edge DERMS software that interconnects the devices creating a fast-acting VPP, allowing them to be remotely controlled and serve as powerful tools in DSR. The ICE - ON™ system offers the needed flexibility solution: storage, cooling, demand response and smart operation at high efficiency and low cost.

Sustainable

Reduces carbon emissions by lowering electricity consumption, does not use any toxic or hazardous materials and can be disposed via traditional waste streams or processed for further use and recovered/recycled.

Cost-Effective

ICE – ON™ systems are significantly cheaper than alternative chemical batteries e.g. lithium-ion. This translates to lower: life-cycle cost, capital costs, LCOE of renewable energy processes, cost to support the cooling equipment, energy use and energy costs.

Simple

ICE - ON™ storage is maintenance-free, plug-and-play, requires no battery management, utilizes the same refrigerant as the main cooling installation and is compatible with all HVAC or industrial cooling systems using chilled water.

Resilient

ICE – ON™ storage is built to last at least 25 years. Unlike chemical batteries, there is no degradation and thus no capacity loss during its whole life-cycle. Can be fully charged and discharged on a daily basis and operate simultaneously during this process.

Safe

Non-flammable, non-toxic, non-explosive and non-hazardous. ICE – ON™ is the safest choice compared to the flammable organic solvent in lithium ion batteries and caustic sulfuric acid in lead acid batteries.

Flexible

ICE – ON™ systems are available for businesses & utilities, they are fully scalable and have the highest flexibility by offering storage, cooling, demand response and smart operation in one solution.

Smart

Equipped with cutting-edge DERMS, operation and monitoring software, our ICE – ON™ systems are smart remote-controlled assets that interconnect to create a fast-acting real-time VPP.

Integration of RES

The ICE – ON™ storage can be integrated with renewable solar and wind generation mitigating renewable energy intermittency, balancing daily demand, production and consumption of electricity, stabilizing the grid and increasing the renewable energy value proposition.

Businesses

Reduce your cooling energy costs and carbon footprint, maintain comfort

Air conditioning can represent up to 70% of building energy costs. Integrating the ICE - ON™ storage with air conditioning equipment or industrial process cooling installations using chilled water results in a substantial reduction of electricity consumption, cuts electricity bills, lowers your buildings carbon footprint and can help you earn credits towards a LEED certification. Without compromising comfort, our ICE - ON™ system can be used in virtually any commercial or industrial facility and is the smartest solution to reduce peak cooling electricity use. Take control of your energy costs, achieve your energy management goals and start saving from day one!

Utilities

Building the smart grid of the future

The ICE - ON™ storage shifts cooling energy use from peak to off-peak hours during periods of low cooling demand for later use in order to manage air conditioning and cooling loads. The solution provides utilities with the tools to increase grid resilience and stability, eliminates or delays costly electric transmission and distribution upgrades and flattens the mid-day peak by eliminating the peak air conditioning load. Our ICE - ON™ systems are equipped with cutting-edge DERMS software that interconnects the devices creating a fast-acting VPP, allowing them to be remote controlled and serve as powerful tools in DSR. Inefficient energy-intensive HVAC systems are the leading reason of peak demand and peak cooling loads. Installing the ICE - ON™ is a cost-effective, clean and smart solution to provide peak capacity and increase grid reliability.
