Highview Power, a leader in true long duration energy storage solutions, announced on May 17 that its Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) system at the Pilsworth Landfill Facility outside of Manchester, UK is a finalist for the BusinessGreen Renewable Energy Project of the Year.
The winners will be announced at the 2018 BusinessGreen Leaders Awards to be held on June 27 at The Brewery in London.
“It is always an honor when we are a nominee, finalist, or winner of an industry award and we appreciate this recognition from BusinessGreen of the importance of the Pilsworth project,’’ said Highview Power CEO Gareth Brett.
Highview Power’s proprietary LAES technology is based on the principle of air liquefaction, which enables the easy storage of gases in cryogenic liquid form.
Recovering the stored energy utilizes the very large expansion in volume from liquid back to gas, powering turbines and generating electricity.
