World's Largest Liquid Air Battery Construction Underway (Int'l.)
Highview Power
Date: 2020-06-24
In the UK, Highview Power is reporting construction is underway on the world's largest liquid air battery at the Tafford Energy Park near Manchester.

The new 250-MWh liquid air battery is expected to be operational in 2022 and will be able to power up to 200,000 homes for five hours, and store power for many weeks.

The $106.5 million project is being supported by $12.5 million in government grant funding and a $43.9 million investment from the Japanese machinery giant Sumitomo Highview is developing other sites in the U.K., continental Europe, and the U.S., but the Manchester project will be the first.

Highview Power Touting Liquid Air Energy Storage System (Ind. Report)
Highview Power Storage
Date: 2019-12-23
In the U.K., London-headquartered cryogenic energy storage system specialist Highview Power Storage, Inc., and Encore Renewable Energy, a developer of renewable energy generation and storage projects are jointly reporting plans to develop the United States' first long duration, liquid air energy storage system -- a minimum of 50MW sytem providing 400MWh stroage -- in northern Vermont.

Highview Power's CRYOBattery™ proprietary liquid air energy storage system relies on low-risk, proven technology, generates zero emissions, has zero water impact and can be delivered at a cost of approximately half of the current cost of traditional lithium-ion batteries. When paired with renewables, the systems are equivalent in performance to fossil fuel powered thermal and nuclear baseload power.

Cryogenic Battery Energy Storage System Planned for UK (Int'l.)
Highview Power
Date: 2019-10-23
In the UK, London-based cryogenics specialist Highview Power is reporting plans to develop a 50MW/250MWh commercial cryogenic battery energy storage facility at a thermal power station in North England. The facility will be used by National Grid to provide market arbitrage, frequency management and stability, reserve and grid constraint management services.

The project is said to be the UK's first, and the largest of its kind in Europe, according to Highview. (Source: Highview Power, Smart Energy, 22 Oct., 2019) Contact: Highview Power, Javier Cavada, CEO, +44 (0) 203 350 1000,

Highview Power Contracts with Tenaska Power Services for US Cryogenic Energy
Highview Power
Date: 2019-07-17
In the U.K., London-headquartered cryogenic energy storage system specialist Highview Power reports it has contracted with Texas-based energy management firm Tenaska Power Services Co. to identify, model, optimize and provide energy management services for up to four giga-scale cryogenic energy storage plants in the U.S. over two years. The initial project is expected to be developed in the ERCOT market.

At giga-scale, Highview Power's long-duration energy storage systems paired with renewables are equivalent in performance to thermal and nuclear baseload power. Highview Power's CRYOBattery™ is currently the only long-duration energy storage solution that is locatable and offers multiple gigawatt-hours of storage, representing weeks' worth of storage, rather than hours or days.

Highview Power, TSK JV on Cryogenic Energy Storage (Ind. Report)
Highview Power, TSK
Date: 2019-03-20
London, UK-headquartered long-duration energy storage specialist Highview Power and Spain's TSK, a global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, are reporting a JV agreement to co-develop gigawatt-hour scale, long-duration energy storage systems using Highview Power's proprietary cryogenic energy storage solution.

The new joint-venture company, named Highview TSK, will develop multiple projects in Spain, the Middle East and South Africa. An initial number of projects have been identified for several GWh of clean energy storage to be developed from 2019 through 2022.

TSK has constructed over 20 GW of generation projects across 35 countries in both fossil fuel fired energy generation and renewable projects such as solar, wind, and biomass, including more than 10 energy storage projects.

Highview Power's proprietary technology uses liquid air as the storage medium and can deliver anywhere from 20 MW/80 MWh to more than 200 MW/1.2 GWh of energy has a lifespan of 30 to 40 years.

Citec, Highview Power Partner on Cryogenic Energy Storage (Int'l)
Highview Power
Date: 2019-01-11
London-headquartered energy storage solutions provider Highview Power reports it has partnered with Vassa, Finland-based engineering firm Citec to modularize its gigawatt-scale cryogenic (liquid air) energy storage system. With a simplified design and streamlined engineering from Citec, a standard plant configuration of 50 MW/500 MWh can be easily and cost-effectively scaled up to multiple gigawatt hours, or down, without limitation.

The first modular solution will be designed with a standard configuration of 50 MW/500 MWh. Work is expected to get underway this year.

15MWh UK Liquid Air Energy Storage Plant Opens (Int'l Report)
Highview Power
Date: 2018-06-06
In the UK, London-headquartered Highview Power reports the startup of its liquid air energy storage (LAES) plant in Bury, greater Manchester. The development, in partnership with energy from waste firm Viridor, is capable of delivering 15MWh of power.

Hihview's technology stores air as a liquid then converts it back to gas. The expansion process releases stored energy, which is used to drive a turbine to generate electricity. The LAES plant at Bury also converts waste heat to power using heat from the on-site landfill gas engines.

According to Highview, LAES could ultimately scale to hundreds of megawatts, potentially storing enough energy to power entire towns. The company is in discussions with several utility firms to build 150MWh units. The Bury development was partially tax-payer funded with an £8 million government grant. Now Highview plans to export the technology, it said. (Source: Highview Power, energyst., Others, 5 June, 2018) Contact: Highview Power CEO Gareth Brett, +44 (0) 207 484 5600
