ABSTRACT
The article reports that London, England-based Highview Power Storagehas has developed a cryogenic process for storing off-peak electric energy by liquefying air. The process is being tested at a facility, hosted by Scottish and Southern Energy PLC's Heat and Power plant in Slough, England. The firm also plans to commercialize the process.
