As a result of the transition to renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, whose production is subject to strong fluctuations, there will be an increasing need for storing electrical energy in the future. With the very limited storage capacity of the current power infrastructure, converting, storing and distributing power generated by renewable energy sources will become a key component in the energy system of the future. Apart from pumped storage power plants, only underground compressed air and hydrogen storage systems can provide the capacity required.
Together with partners from industry and science, DEEP.KBB is working on a wide range of ground-breaking planning and R&D projects for future compressed air and hydrogen plants. Currently, these projects primarily focus on forecasting the available geological storage potential and on preparing demonstration projects.
