Compressed Air Energy Storage White Paper

The PTRC has released a white paper on the development of compressed air energy storage (CAES) in Saskatchewan as one possible solution to produce cost competitive, low or emissions-free capacity electricity.  CAES technology has been proven at the industrial scale in Germany and the United States, and Saskatchewan is particularly blessed with the ideal geology to develop CAES energy projects.  The amount of power CAES could provide would be dependent on the size of the storage caverns and the capacity of the compression and generation equipment.  To access the white paper, please click here
