Hydrostor Advancing Long Duration Energy Storage in California

Long duration energy storage solution provider Hydrostor announced the development of 1,000 MW of long duration energy storage in California in USA.

Long duration energy storage solution provider Hydrostor announced the development of 1,000 MW of long duration energy storage in California in USA. The California Public Utilities Commission has identified a need for up to 1,600 MW of long duration energy storage by 2026. Long duration energy storage is critical to achieving California’s decarbonization and renewable goals. Hydrostor is proud to play a critical role in the clean energy transition for the state, and looks forward to continuing to work with the Commission to establish its commercial pathway for long duration energy storage.

Hydrostor has two major projects now in active development, one in southern Kern County and one in Central California, representing a combined investment of over SD 1.5 billion USD, creating economic opportunities for Californians while supporting the transition to a carbon-free and renewable energy grid. Project development work including transmission interconnection, engineering and permitting activities are well underway. These are major capital projects that establish long-term clean energy infrastructure to the state using highly skilled union employment and provide significant economic benefits to the region.

Hydrostor’s patented and commercially proven A-CAES technology provides 8-12+ hours of energy storage, versus the 1-4 hours that current battery technologies can feasibly provide. This long duration energy storage is essential for establishing the pathway to California’s decarbonized electricity grid. A-CAES also has a longer lifespan, of more than 50 years, with zero degradation and a lower environmental impact than conventional alternatives available today.
