FreeThem Generation, based in Sweden and Canada, has been active since 2000 within the cleantech and clean energy fields. From an initial focus on consulting and facilitating technology transfer (between Sweden and Canada), FreeThem has evolved to concept development and solutions implementation.
FreeThem combines the following major trends and technology shifts that will affect how energy/fuel is converted, stored and utilized:
Ocean-based renewable energy generation:
The ocean will increase in importance as a source of energy over the next 50 years. Oceans can be used for wave and tidal energy generation and also for wind and sun.
Electrofuels, CO2 reduction, and carbon neutral fuels:
Scaled production of electrofuels (by combining renewable hydrogen and carbon dioxide) is set to be a fundamental shift in fuel production. This will allow for a carbon-neutral transportation sector in the long term.
Energy storage and DC high-power charging:
The possibility of storing electricity in high energy-density batteries has the potential to change how our societies and transport networks are built and function.
Liquid Wind’s vision is to store surplus wind and solar energy as converted liquid electrofuel. The company is currently preparing to build a large-scale renewable methanol factory in Sweden. The methanol will be made from renewable energy and carbon dioxide. Liquid Wind is on track to be Europe's first high-capacity facility for carbon neutral electrofuel.
Taking Charge is creating a DC-powered ultra fast charging system for electric cars in inner city environments. The optimized energy system in buildings combines the latest technology in energy storage, power electronics and vehicle charging. This creates a fast charging system that reduces load on the local power grid, thereby enabling cost effective charging.
An ocean-based energy station, Solar Ocean aims to generate solar energy at sea and store it in a floating platform. This autonomous system will also provide high power charging for electric boats. The project, an initiative of 13 participating organizations, will begin testing and construction in 2018.
Seaflex Energy System (ES) is the leading provider of mooring solutions to the ocean energy sector. The Seaflex ES enable the energy producer to generate more energy and achieve longer lifetime thanks to the flexible mooring systems provided by Seaflex ES. The systems are used in floating solar, floating wind, wave and tidal energy applications.
