Take 5: An interview with… Keith McGrane, CEO Corre Energy

Corre Energy develops energy storage projects which ensure electricity generated by renewable sources can be stored at scale and for multiple days.

As a result, it means renewable energy can be relied upon to support peaks and troughs of grid demand.

Our primary focus is on long duration projects where we use compressed air to store energy in large underground salt caverns. This allows large amounts of energy to be stored in one location at scale and for multiple days before being converted back into electricity as required.
