Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES)

Compressed air energy storage (CAES) is a method of storing energy that is generated at one time and using it at another by compressing air. CAES facilities enable you to optimize your base load units by minimizing load swings to maximize efficiency and extend unit life. Storing energy lets you use off-peak power to meet peak demand. The ability to extract energy from renewables such as wind and solar, store it, and use it when needed is a growing need in the power industry.
