the case for CAES

importance of Compressed Air Energy Storage written by Jim Isherwood energy transition Global electricity generation is transitioning to an ever-greater contribution from variable renewable sources (VRE), such as wind and solar. As international grids adjust, the need for energy storage[1] becomes acute. When the wind does not blow, or sun does not shine, a disparity...
