Four US energy firms have planned an $8 billion wind storage project that includes a 1.2GW compressed air storage system.

The companies, Pathfinder Renewable Wind Energy, Magnum Energy, Dresser-Rand and Duke-American Transmission, plan to construct a 2.1GW wind farm in Wyoming to bring power to Los Angeles in California. High voltage lines would send the electricity to a salt-cavern compressed air site in Utah and then be released at times of peak demand in the Los Angeles area.

The first stage of California Public Utilities Commission’s (CPUC) flagship energy storage target will be fully procured, according to the Commissioner responsible for its implementation.

In October 2013 CPUC approved a mandate requiring the state’s three large investor-owned utilities – Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric - to procure 1.325GW of energy storage by 2020. CPUC will issue in December its first competitive solicitation for the scheme, and with 136MW up for grabs demand is expected to be strong.

An ambitious 268MW compressed air energy storage (CAES) project in Northern Ireland could be online by mid-2018, according to developer Gaelectric.

Wind energy developer Gaelectric wants to build the approximately £300m ($491m) CAES project on the outskirts of the Northern Ireland port of Larne. The project would require the development of three 230,000 m3 salt caverns to store compressed air and provide up to six hours of energy for peak-time use.
