World Market Leader in Renewable Energy Storage
“All the batteries we make now can ONLY store 10 minutes of the world’s electricity needs, we need a breakthrough here, something that is going to be a factor of a HUNDRED better than what we have today”
Introduction to Storelectric CAES
The Importance of Storing Energy
CAES is a form of grid-scale energy storage that works by compressing air, then expanding it again when needed. It has been in use safely and reliably since the 70s, but revenue stream improvements and the recent development by Storelectric means that Storelectric CAES is expected to be very profitable in today’s markets; more so in the future.
