Energy storage

Energy storage technologies have a key role to play in buffering the intermittent nature of renewable energy generation, and in safeguarding security of supply for the UK. Costain’s multi-disciplinary front end solutions team has the expertise needed to carry out techno-economic evaluations of potential energy storage schemes, and assess their viability with a technology neutral approach.

Costain has undertaken multiple pieces of work to assist customers with evaluation of energy storage technologies and develop conceptual designs.

We have particular strengths in:

  • Compressed air energy storage, in which our extensive experience in turbo machinery engineering and UK market leading position in salt cavity gas storage gives us a wealth of knowledge to draw on, and;
  • Liquid air energy storage, for which we can leverage world-leading expertise in cryogenic gas processing design and construction.
