Liquid Air for Utility-Scale Energy Storage? : Greentech Media

See on Scoop.itGreen Energy Technologies & Development

U.K.-based startup Highview Power Storage uses super-cooled air to store energy at potentially massive scale.

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

"In fact, it’s cost-competitive with the two most cost-effective energy storage technologies today: compressed air and pumped hydro. But where compressed air requires underground caverns, and pumped hydro requires dams and reservoirs, Highview’s system can scale up at 1 megawatt-hour of energy for every 10 tons of liquid air, Brett said."
