"As we look to run our homes and cars, businesses and factories on zero or low carbon energy, we need new solutions to capture and essentially warehouse green energy so it can be used when and where required either on the grid or in a vehicle. At one end of the scale, pumped hydro provides very large scale energy storage but is geographically constrained; while at the other, batteries can fit in vehicles but are currently expensive and take hours to recharge. Liquid air is an exciting alternative we should explore; it seems to address many of the challenges we face."
