A Look at Liquid Air Energy Storage Technology
Large-scale grid storage is seen by some as the holy grail for large-scale renewable energy grid integration. A new technology has the potential to meet that need.
With traditional coal-fired power stations coming to the end of their working lives, the challenge to engineers to develop clean, reliable energy technologies has never been so pressing.
Renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power both offer potential solutions but the unresolved issue has always been consistency of supply and how to store energy generated for use at a later date.
One energy storage solution that has come to the forefront in recent months is Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES), which uses liquid air to create an energy reserve that can deliver large-scale, long duration energy storage.
