Excess wind energy to be stored in liquid form

As reported by the London organization of mechanical engineers, now do not have to use a special battery and hydrogen to store excess wind energy, obtained by wind farms. This function will perform liquid air.

The principle of operation of the new opening will be next. Electricity produced at night, for example, wind farms in Tehachapi California, will translate the cool air in a special cryogenic low-temperature state in adapted for the vacuum vessel. Once the windmill will need more energy to continue, liquid cold air will be heated and fed into the turbine. For turning air into the
