CAES, Inc.

Rockhouse Mountain CAES, Inc. is a company involved in design and project development of compressed air energy storage (CAES). CAES functions by compressing air into containers when energy is plentiful and releasing that air into turbines (to recreate energy) when energy is needed. It has been used successfully to power automobiles and, for utility scale, has been successfully used by compressing air into limestone caverns and eroded salt caves.

RM CAES, Inc. is designing and doing project development of CAES in salt domes on land and in bladders in bodies of water. The CAES on land will be developed in East Texas. The compression of air into these eroded salt caverns will be done using very high pressures with the result of the discharge of large amounts of heat. This heat will be captured (adiabatic storage) and returned to the air being decompressed together with a solar boost. Anticipated efficiency using this adiabatic storage and the solar boost is expected to be 80%.

The CAES in water will be developed off the coast of Northern California. The decompression of the air happens as a matter of depth and displacement of the water and so the resultant pressure required (and the heat that needs to be recovered) is much less than that on land.

Global Warming; The World’s Biggest Problem

by Robert Jawitz

This assessment of the situation regarding Global Warming, according to the US Department of Environmental Protection, is:

“For over the past 200 years, the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, and deforestation have caused the concentrations of heat-trapping "greenhouse gases" to increase significantly in our atmosphere. These gases prevent heat from escaping to space, somewhat like the glass panels of a greenhouse.
