Highview Power’s Pilsworth plant featuring its proprietary liquid air energy storage (LAES) technology has won the Regen Green Energy Award in the Clean Energy Innovation category.

Regen is a not-for-profit centre of energy expertise and market insight whose mission is to transform the world’s energy systems for a low carbon future.

The Green Energy Awards are given annually to top businesses, public sector organisations, community groups, and individuals from across the UK that are spearheading the transition to a more decentralised, decarbonised, and democratic energy system.

Highview Power’s LAES technology was chosen over four other category finalists amongst a record number of entries for the award.

“We are thrilled to have won a Regen Green Energy Award and would like to offer our congratulations to our fellow finalists and to the judges that selected us for this honour,” said Javier Cavada, President and CEO of Highview Power.

“It is now time for LAES and we are ready to increase the momentum towards a world that is 100% powered by clean energy. Our Viridor Pilsworth project is actively proving how effective LAES systems can be at balancing the grid and providing revenue streams for utilities, particularly when integrated with renewables.”
