Motor turns generator in new power storage facility, DPA

Renewable energy is intermittent and as the infrastructure grows, energy storage systems must be available to fill gaps in the supply or to meet high peak demand. A novel way of storing electric power has been developed by Highview Power Storage. The company’s ‘CryoEnergy’ system runs during low-tariff periods and uses the cheap electricity to operate an air liquefaction plant, storing the liquefied air in an insulated tank at -196oC.
