Highview Power And Ørsted Collaborate To Unlock Greater Value From The Next Generation Of Wind Farms

The title of this post, is the same as that of this press release from Ørsted.

This is the sub-heading.

Highview Power and Ørsted have signed a Memorandum of Understanding aiming to prove the feasibility and economic value of co-locating long duration energy storage with offshore wind.

This first paragraph indicates how the two companies will work together.

The two companies will carry out detailed technical analysis and an economic assessment during 2023 that will investigate how combining Ørsted’s wind technology with Highview Power’s liquid air energy storage can deliver a stronger investment case for future offshore wind projects by reducing wind curtailment, increasing productivity, and helping the move to a more flexible, resilient zero carbon grid.

This all good stuff and as a Control Engineer, I know, there is a very good chance, it will bring forward worthwhile benefits.

  1. Another CEO has left – Rupert Pearce left a couple of weeks ago. Question mark on how well Highview’s capital raise is progressing. Five years since Highview commissioned its 5MW/15MWh demonstration project and nine years since its partnership with GE. Nothing major (apart from hot air) has happened with the Company. They need to crack on and get going with building the 50MW/300MWh plant in Carrington, along with the 200MW/2.5GWh facility in Yorkshire.
