Highview Power Storage is a developer of utility-scale energy storage and power systems to optimise energy resources and help decarbonise the grid. Its proprietary process uses cryogenic (liquefied) air or its principal component, liquid nitrogen, as the working fluid and the media for storing and/or transporting energy.



Working since 2005, Highview has a grid-ready platform specifically designed to meet rigorous utility operational requirements. While a novel process design (patent granted), the system comprises reliable, proven components from mainstream suppliers. The result is a modular, low capital cost storage system which can be rapidly deployed. The exhaust is clean, cold air.





 


Liquid air as future renewable could relieve pressure on scarce materials
19 October, 2012
British scientists and firms are examining the feasibility of using normal air to store energy by cooling it to -190C, turning it into a liquid. When the liquid air is later warmed, it rapidly expands into a gas, creating high pressure that can drive the piston engine of a car, or generate electricity in a turbine.
