Founded in 2006, General Compression makes low-cost bulk energy storage a reality. The GCAES™ technology is a modular compressor/expander that enables both utility-scale and distributed energy storage projects. GCAES™ stores energy in pressurized air and warmed water. Based on reversible thermodynamics, GCAES™ is fuel-free, emits no carbon or other emissions, and provides near-isothermal compression and expansion. Multiple GCAES™ units can be linked together to enable projects ranging from approximately 5 to as much as 1,000 megawatts or more.
