Cryogenic energy storage

Plans have been announced for the construction in Britain of the first commercial liquid air energy storage facility, an innovative project due to begin operation in 2023 near the northern city of Manchester.

The project is being undertaken by a joint venture between the British firm Highview Power and Carlton Power, an independent solar and gas power station developer.

It calls for the creation of a “cryogenic battery” with a 50 MW capacity (with the possibility of adding capacity at a later date) based on technology of mobile, long duration energy storage.

The battery acts in the same manner as a pumped hydroelectric energy storage station, but can be built at a wide variety of locations.

The project has already secured a grant of 10 million pounds ($12.5 million) from the British government.

A statement by Highview described the cryogenic system of energy storage – using frozen liquid air – as the sole long duration energy storage system currently available. The plants, it said, can provide multiple gigawatt hours – or several weeks – of storage.

Central Asian climate undergoes irreversible change

By measuring the width, colour and other properties of the rings, researchers said the climate in Central Asia was altered in irreversible fashion against a background of constant heat waves in the 1990s.The unprecedented rise in average temperatures over the years led to a ripple of repetitive processes of drying out the soil – which contributed to a rise in temperatures.
