Storage Plants

Grid operators are increasingly turning to long-term energy storage to improve the competitiveness of power generation, balance the grid, increase reliability and reduce the price of energy by using more renewable energy.

 

On a large scale, energy storage resources combined with renewables are equivalent in performance and could even replace the base load of thermal and nuclear power plants, in addition to increasing the reliability of electricity transmission and distribution systems and providing greater security of supply.

At TSK we are committed to those technologies that bring us closer to a 100% renewable future:
Liquid air and molten salt technology

Both the technology based on Liquid Air (LAES) and that using Molten Salts (eTES) have the following advantages over traditional storage technologies (mainly electric batteries):

Lower installation cost.

Lower maintenance cost.

Does not use critical materials (lithium, vanadium, etc.).

Allows to regulate and stabilize the electrical networks.

Does not suffer degradation

It does not generate waste to be recycled.

No technological risks: Proven technologies. Molten salts are used in solar thermal power plants and the liquid air is based on the use of compression processes, cryogenic storage and air turbines that have been used in the industry for decades.

In particular, molten salt technology has an additional advantage: it can reuse the cycle of an existing thermal power plant.

 

Liquid Air Storage Technology (LAES)

 

LAES technology (Liquid Air Energy Storage), stores energy by compressing and cooling air to a liquid state, allowing large amounts of air (and therefore energy) to be stored in a small space.

Molten Salt Storage Technology (ETES)

 

In eTES technology (electrical Thermal Energy Storage) electrical energy is stored in the form of internal energy of a fluid, to be later recovered in a steam turbine.
