Containerized, above-ground energy storage, achieved using tanks to hold the compressed air, is well-suited for use in microgrids, such as in remote communities, industrial sites, or military installations, or where underground storage is impossible or impractical.
Sigma Energy Storage has specifically designed their above-ground Hybrid Thermal-Compressed Air Energy Storage (HT-CAES) technology for use in rugged climates including the Canadian Arctic.
Containerized HT-CAES Highlights
- Geologically independent
- Use to integrate renewables in microgrids
- Reduce diesel energy waste in remote communities
- Highly scalable to project needs
