Building novel storage projects on brownfields

The Latitude

Nov 15 2023 • 11 mins

Transmission backlogs. Land constraints. Local pushback. They’re all causing headaches for developers of wind, solar, and battery projects. And that’s making brownfields more attractive for renewables – and a range of novel, industrial-scale storage and carbon-removal projects. An Italian company is planning a compressed carbon dioxide storage project on the site of an old coal plant in the Midwest. It’s a first-of-a-kind. And it may offer a pathway for the hundreds of gigawatts of long-duration storage that are needed to hit net-zero emissions. Today: Editor Lisa Martine Jenkins presents a story from contributor Emma Foehringer Merchant on the surge of interest in old industrial sites to host frontier climatetech projects like long-duration storage.
