Advantages of KAB System
1. Emission Free (no CO2)
Designed to use the power from renewable energy sources.
Zero Emissions during operation. Adiabatic CAES without gas turbine, which uses only Air and Water.
By using Salt Cavern as air storage, outstanding cost reduction will be achieved for long duration (over 4 hours), which is proved by the DOE report in 2020.
One KAB system could be used both for Compressor and Expander.
Minimize the loss of power during charging/discharging by using Dry Screw Compressor.
Store excess intermittent energy from renewable resources and sell dispatchable stored energy when market prices are higher.
KOBELCO Dry Screw has a qualified, expert, nation-wide service network in the U.S.
