The C3 Take
  • Energy Dome SA, an Italian startup, has made a potentially game-changing breakthrough for long-duration energy storage.
  • Using a closed-loop liquified CO2 system the company was able to successfully complete a 2 megawatt-hour pilot project.
  • The company also claims that its technology can be built using in a more economically-feasible way than lithium-ion battery storage.
  • Energy Dome’s breakthrough could be a significant advancement for energy storage and clean energy production.

“Energy Dome’s technology is a closed-loop system, where CO2 is compressed at 60 bars of pressure and turned into a liquid. When electricity is needed, the CO2 is evaporated to turn a turbine.”
