Green CAES

Cost-effecive solution enabling renewables to power grids 24/7

Gallery Green CAES 1


Storelectric is developing the world’s most cost-effective and widely implementable large-scale energy storage technology: a transmission/distribution grid-scale Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES).

All 3 technologies in this solution are simplifications of technologies operating for decades, use standard off-the-shelf equipment (so technical risk is low). 1) Innovative adiabatic TES CAES. Our 500MW, 2.5-21GWh installations have zero/low emissions, 68-70% round trip efficiency, levelled cost cheaper than gas-fired peaking plants and batteries. 2) Equally innovative and uniquely retro-fittable CCGT CAES converts and gives new economic life to gas-fired power stations, reducing emissions, cutting energy costs and adding storage revenues. 3) Hybrids of the two technologies.

Label Date May 1, 2020
From United Kingdom
Maturity stage Prototype testing in the real world
Looking For Network; New clients; Visibility; Funding; Partners; Credibility

The environmental benefits

  • Each TES CAES plant reduces emissions by 37,080 tonnes CO2 p.a. (40MW) to 463,500 tonnes (500MW) - CCGT CAES about 1/3 of that and hybrid is between the two.
  • Enables renewables to power grids by providing balancing, back-up, ancillary services and grid stability
  • Makes the energy transition more affordable

The Financial benefits

  • The payback time is 10-15 years.
