How Liquid Air Could Solve The UK’s Energy Conundrum

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

The article is mainly an article that described the technology and it discloses a few facts.

  • The Carrington plant should be delivered in 2024.
  • Carrington will be a 30 MW/30 MWh system.
  • Efficiency is around 50 %, but there are possibilities to raise it to 70 %.
  • Australia is mentioned as a market.
  • It is likely to be paired with supercapacitors or a flywheel to have a quick start.
  • It seems to me, that turning an idea into a practical system is taking a lot of work and money, and a bit of a rethink.

But hopefully, the system will eventually be developed, as it does promise to be an energy storage system, that doesn’t make high demands on the environment in terms of expensive metals and rare earths.
