Iowa Stored Energy ParkApr 24th, 2009 | By critellilaw | Category: Featured Page
President Obama’s interest in compressed air energy storage has generated a lot of enquiries regarding the Iowa Stored Energy Park’s compressed air energy storage (CAES) project. As Corporate Counsel for the project we are happy to direct you to the individuals who can answer your technical questions. The project is exciting because it makes power of wind energy a usable commodity. The concept is simple: The energy generated by wind is used to power air compressors which compress air and store it in its compressed state deep underground. When the need for electrical energy rises the compressed air is released and used to power turbines which generates the needed electrical energy.
Iowa’s Innovative Energy Solution
There’s a cleaner, safer, and more cost-effective way to produce electricity! The answer lies in something that is all around us. Wind power. It’s free and Iowa has plenty of it!
The Iowa Stored Energy Park (ISEP) will simply harvest the wind’s energy and store it for future use. This marks a huge step forward in innovative alternative energy. Until now, the one downside with wind was that it had been unreliable as an energy source. No wind. No power. Now, by storing the wind’s energy for when we need it, wind is something we can control and count upon.
What’s more, harvesting wind is a cleaner, more environmentally friendly way to generate electricity. By using wind energy, ISEP will help control your family’s energy costs, decrease dependency on foreign energy, and decrease our use of fossil fuels.
