We store your energy

High-efficiency compressed air energy storage (CAES)


Wind farm

Our Technology

We store your solar and wind energy on site and above-ground for a 24/7 uninterrupted service using our MW-scale CAES (Compressed Air Energy Storage) units. We use electricity to compress ambient air to 300 bar, then decompress it and get the electricity back when it's needed.
