Energy Dome Launches World’s First CO2 Battery Long-Duration Energy Storage Plant

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Renewable Energy Magazine.

This is the first paragraph.

Energy Dome, a provider of utility-scale long-duration energy storage, has successfully launched its first CO2 Battery facility in Sardinia, Italy. This milestone marks the final de-risking of the CO2 Battery technology as Energy Dome enters the commercial scaling phase, becoming the first commercial long-duration energy storage technology on the market offering a reliable alternative to fossil fuels for dispatchable baseload power globally.

I like their technology and you can find more about it on their web site.

They say this about how they use the unique properties of carbon dioxide.

CO2 is the perfect fluid to store energy cost effectively in a closed thermodynamic process as it is one of the few gases that can be condensed and stored as a liquid under pressure at ambient temperature. This allows for high density energy storage without the need to go at extreme cryogenic temperatures.

And it’s not that carbon dioxide is a rare and expensive gas.

This is certainly technology to watch.
