Under pressure

Technology

Who would have thought that plain old air could offer a solution to climate change?

All that’s needed is to liquify it.

A British based company with a track record in energy storage solutions compresses and cools ambient air, turning it to liquid at -196°C, at which point the air is stored at low pressure.

If the electrical grid needs stabilizing, the liquid air is heated so it expands again and can be used to drive a turbine and generate energy.

A breath of fresh air.
