Round the Clock Renewables, Aljazeera

If conditions are good, wind, sun and sea may generate more electricity than the grid can take, but at other times they may not produce enough.

One solution to this problem is to store up surplus renewable power, so it can be released when it is needed. And British company Highview Power Storage have come up with a new way of doing this, using a resource that is all around us – air.

UK warms to cryogenic energy stores, Financial Times

One of the more innovative entries has come from the private company Highview Power Storage in London. At its 350KW pilot plant in Slough, Berkshire, electricity is used to cool air to its liquid state at minus 196C, which is stored in insulated containers. When power is needed, this liquid air can be warmed and converted back to gas to drive electricity generating turbines. Each litre of liquid air expands to 700 litres of gas. With further work done to improve efficiency, Highview believes its “cryogenic” storage system could provide a cheap means of smoothing wind energy supply.

When the wind blows we must capture it for a calmer day, The Conversation

We are also committed to opening-up new methods in use of clean liquid air energy storage, that compresses air into cryogenically frozen liquid. Batteries have their place but if progress is to be made we need low cost, large capacity storage solutions that do not consume mineral and metal resources – and we need them fast.
