Project Name : Energy Storage and Generator
Theme Name : Energy Resource & Conservation
There are innumerable models that propose the generation of electricity today but we are presenting “Underwater Compressed Air System”. This Doesn‟t only generate electricity but also stores it and makes it available even when no sun is shining and no wind is blowing where energy from renewable source creates electricity via transmission lines is transferred to an advanced adiabatic compressor system that converts electricity to compressed air which is stored in flexible under water mounted (with anchors) accumulators .When demand of electricity arises locks are released and the air rushes due to pressure of water through the accumulators to the turbines which further run the generators to produce electricity. This system provides a solution for every city in the world that has a deep water body around it.
70%of electricity can be regenerated which was earlier getting wasted as such.
Low cost structure low environmental impact
Heat produced during compression can be utilized in the thermal power to produce additional electricity.
This system is under construction in lake Ontario, Canada, with a generation capacity of 1 MW and storage capacity of 4MWH so a country like ours, where there was recently a major crisis like Northern Grid Failure, resulting into a complete blackout, definitely needs such a solution.
