Corre Energy and Eneco to collaborate on German CAES project

Corre Energy and Eneco have agreed to offtake, co-develop and co-invest into a compressed air energy storage (CAES) project in Germany, located near to the future hydrogen backbone grid.

The agreement will ensure Eneco acquires a 50% interest in the project, with economics to be agreed including both development capital and construction equity. Eneco will also secure the entire storage capacity under long-term offtake agreement for the first phase project at Ahaus.
