Highview is working with commercial partners and end users to design multi MW projects for the UK and international markets. Bespoke Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) plants can be designed by Highview, that can deliver around 5MW/15MWh – to significantly more than 50MW/200MWh. The plants would support a number […]
Highview and project partners, energy and waste management company, Viridor, were awarded funding from the British Government Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), to build a 5MW Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) technology system. The funding is supporting the design, build and testing of a pre-commercial […]
Having commissioned and successfully tested the pilot demonstrator, a liquefier was added to form a fully integrated LAES System. The project was fully commissioned in July 2011.
The (350kW/2.5MWh) pilot plant was connected to the grid and subjected to a full testing regime, including performance testing for the US PJM […]
The pilot demonstrator, the first of its kind in the world, is hosted by SSE (Scottish & Southern Energy) and located on Slough Trading Estate, one of the largest industrial estates in Europe.
The plant allowed Highview to practically demonstrate the power recovery phase of the system at scale of […]
