A commercial-academic UK consortium has secured more than £350,000 (US$454,000) of government funding to develop a liquid air energy storage (LAES) system.

Partners building material company Aggregate Industries, energy tech firm Innovatium and the University of Birmingham, said the funding would be used to take its Prisma (peak reduction by integrated storage and management of air) technology “from initial laboratory testing to full operation in an industrial environment”.

Aggregate Industries said Prisma “is an innovative LAES technology that stores energy in liquid air form to provide compressed air, allowing inefficient partially-loaded, variable-demand compressors to be turned off, thus improving the total system efficiency by up to 57%”.
