The Liquid Air Energy Network (LAEN) is the new forum for the advocacy and development of liquid air as an alternative way to harness waste and surplus energy within power and transport.
- Liquid air is a novel, energy storage solution that could play a key role in the low carbon energy future.
- The UK has world class expertise in both mechanical engineering and cryogenics.
The use of liquid air for grid-based energy storage could increase energy security, cut greenhouse gas emissions and create a new industry for the UK worth at least £1bn pa and 22,000 jobs to the UK. Liquid air technologies could also significantly increase the efficiency of road vehicles, particularly in commercial buses, vans and refrigerated lorry fleets.
