Compressed air energy storehouse approved for old Goderich salt cave
from CBC News
Goderich city council has approved a proposal by a Toronto company to pressurize an abandoned salt cavern and later release the compressed gas to create clean energy. The decision comes despite some opposition from residents who said they were concerned not enough is known about the project — a first in the world. The project is being touted by NRStor, a private Toronto company that operates a project near Guelph involving flywheels. Their flywheel project uses cheaper energy, for example at night, and rotates a steel drum which stores kinetic energy. Later, the spinning drum is rotated to release its energy and generate power.
