The widespread use of compressed air in powering industrial equipment has earned it the nickname “the fourth utility.” While the compressors used to power these tools are powered by electricity, compressed air plays several important roles in the energy industry.
Compressed air is used to perform operations in the mining and extraction of oil and gas. For example, the natural gas industry depends on compressed air to maintain proper pipeline pressures and for many other applications.
Compressed air also has exciting renewable energy applications. One of the most difficult obstacles facing the renewable energy industry is the issue of energy storage. Because solar energy can only be collected when the sun is shining, a reliable and efficient means of storage is required for that energy to be available to consumers at night. Promising advances in compressed air energy storage (CAES) could potentially revolutionize global power storage and distribution.
