Large scale Energy Storage, DPA Magazine

Highview Power Storage’s system uses liquid air as the storage medium and can be scaled to 100MWs/GWhs of storage, similar to medium scale pumped hydro. But liquid air can easily be stored in the same low pressure tanks as used by the LNG industry – it is hundreds of times more energy dense than water (therefore taking up far less space) – and the process does not need large mountains or lakes, like some pumped storage systems.

UK Company Showcases Novel, Large Scale Energy Storage System, Electricity Storage Association

Over the coming months energy teams from the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change through to grid operators and utilities from UK, Europe and further afield are visiting a small site adjoining Scottish & Southern Energy’s biomass power plant on Slough trading estate west of London. They are there to see the world’s first pilot plant of a liquid air energy storage system, owned and operated by Highview Power Storage, a UK energy storage developer. This, they believe, could be the answer to the big problem many power grids are facing – what do we do about wrong-time wind energy?

A London Industrial estate’s pilot plant may solve costly problem of ‘wrong time’ wind energy, Environment Times

Wind turbines creating power for the national electricity grid at the wrong time is costing the country millions of pounds. And that’s a prime reason why UK Government ministers will be making visits to a London industrial estate next to a power plant that reckons it has cracked the problem through widely available energy storage.
