Green-Y Energy and SBTC Launch Pilot Project Using Compressed Air to Store Electricity

Industry News – Tuesday, December 01, 2020

German energy storage Startup Green-Y Energy AG and the Swiss Battery Technology Center (SBTC) have launched a pilot project. In the new building of the Switzerland Innovation Park Biel/Bienne (SIPBB), electricity is being stored with compressed air storage technology. With this development, it is possible to store renewable energy and release it again as electricity.

Only air and water are used as working materials, the system is durable and completely recyclable. With the environmentally friendly compressed air storage system, energy costs and emissions from buildings are expected to be sustainably reduced. The compressed air reservoir is going to be able to produce heat and cold, which will be used, for example, to heat water or the building, and cool laboratories, respectively.
