Billion-dollar deal will see Highview Power deploy 2GWh of liquid air energy storage in Europe

Energy storage firm Highview Power is set to develop up to 2GWh of liquid air energy storage projects to help Spain move towards its net zero emissions target.

An estimated investment of around $1 billion will see up to seven CRYOBattery™ projects ranging from 50MW/300MWh in Asturias, Cantabria, Castilla y Leon, and the Canary Islands.

The projects will be realised alongside development partners and a consortium of investors, which include engineering company TSK, and the Center for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research (CIEMAT). 

Highview Power’s technology uses liquid air as the storage medium and delivers critical grid stability services, like synchronous inertia, short circuit and dynamic voltage control. 

Spain adopted the National Energy and Climate Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 23% by the close of the decade.

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%”.
