Compressed Gas Energy Storage

By: John Gülen, Senior Principal Engineer
Blog

One of the latest trends in energy is the mandate to increase the level of energy derived from renewable resources. As with many trends, a variety of challenges have arisen. Renewable resources, like wind and solar, have low-predictability because ‘they’re on when they are on’ and may not be available when called upon to satisfy immediate demand. Because of this, it’s difficult to match electric power demand and renewable based supply, which is important for both users and producers of electrical energy.
