UK Energy Plant To Use Liquid Air

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This article about the technique is different, as it details some of the human back-story in these three paragraphs.

The system was devised by Peter Dearman, a self-taught backyard inventor from Hertfordshire, and it has been taken to commercial scale with a £10m grant from the UK government.

“It’s very exciting,” he told BBC News. “We need many different forms of energy storage – and I’m confident liquid air will be one of them.”

Mr Dearman said his invention was 60-70% efficient, depending how it is used.

Mr. Dearman is now a passive shareholder in Highview Power, who are building the plant.
