Highview Power Unveils CRYOBattery, World’s First Giga-Scale Cryogenic Battery
Highview Power has announced a modular cryogenic energy storage system, the CRYOBattery, that is scalable up to multiple gigawatts of energy storage. The systems can enable renewable energy baseload power at large scale, while also supporting electricity and distribution systems and providing energy security. The system uses liquid air as the storage medium and provides all the services essential for a robust grid including time shifting, synchronous voltage support, frequency regulation and reserves, synchronous inertia, and black start capabilities.
