Title (EN) CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) AS CUSHION GAS FOR COMPRESSED AIR ENERGY STORAGE (CAES)
(FR) DIOXYDE DE CARBONE (CO2) EN TANT QUE GAZ COUSSIN POUR STOCKAGE D’ÉNERGIE SOUS FORME D’AIR COMPRIMÉ (CAES)
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides for the utilization of a cushion gas in compressed air energy storage (CAES). In particular, the use of carbon dioxide (CO2) as the cushion gas has been provided. Using CO2 as the cushion gas enhances the effectiveness of the CAES by allowing greater amounts of compressed air to be stored and extracted.
(FR)La présente invention concerne l’utilisation d’un gaz coussin dans le stockage d’énergie sous forme d’air comprimé (CAES). En particulier, l’utilisation de dioxyde de carbone (CO2) en tant que gaz coussin est prévue. L’utilisation de CO2 en tant que gaz coussin améliore l’efficacité du CAES en permettant à des quantités plus importantes d’air comprimé d’être stockées et extraites.
