Gaelectric compressed air energy storage project

An ambitious 268MW compressed air energy storage (CAES) project in Northern Ireland could be online by mid-2018, according to developer Gaelectric.

Wind energy developer Gaelectric wants to build the approximately £300m ($491m) CAES project on the outskirts of the Northern Ireland port of Larne. The project would require the development of three 230,000 m3 salt caverns to store compressed air and provide up to six hours of energy for peak-time use.
