Cryogenic Energy Storage for Renewable Refrigeration and Power Supply

CryoHub was an EU-funded project to develop and investigate the potential of large scale cryogenic energy storage at refrigerated warehouses and food factories.

The innovative CryoHub technology is based on storing renewable energy as a cryogenic liquid - which in the case of this project is liquid air.  This cryogen is then boiled at very low temperatures to generate electricity for on-site use or feeding the power grid during peak demand periods. The cooling effect of boiling the cryogen is employed to refrigerate industrial facilities. Read more.
