What is it?
- An energy-efficient chemical plant
- An energy storage system
- A demonstration project to integrate natural gas distribution with the electric grid
This energy storage demonstration facility uses electricity to compress air, cool it to liquid phase, and store it in a tank. Developers, utilities, and other stakeholders are investigating this along with numerous other technologies for bulk energy storage applications. In the electric power industry, the need to integrate intermittent, utility-scale renewables and the potential to defer investment in transmission and distribution infrastructure are driving increased interest in bulk storage.
