CAES in the Netherlands

Corre Energy's flagship CAES project 'ZW1' is strategically located in north-eastern Netherlands. The project has secured co-financing from the Connecting Europe Facility and is an approved Project of Common Interest (PCI). ZW1 has been designated by the European Union as having a significant impact on energy markets and contributing to the EU's climate and energy goals by integrating renewables.

The location of the project ensures proven salt resources and infrastructure, excellent connections to grid, gas and hydrogen supply, and is ideally situated to serve as a storage platform for offshore wind.

Corre Energy has a roadmap of additional CAES and hydrogen storage projects on a global scale.

Hydrogen storage in Denmark

Corre Energy is the consortium lead for the development of the Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark project (DK1), and the application to the EU Innovation Fund. The project aims to combine large-scale hydrogen production with underground hydrogen storage and compressed air energy storage to accelerate Denmark's green energy transition. The project brings together Corre Energy, Eurowind Energy A/S and Gas Storage Denmark, combining expertise to balance renewables with 100% green power.

CAES in Germany

Our project in the Ahaus/Epe area in the North Rhine-Westphalia aims to contribute to the energy transition in Germany. The project is well located between ever increasing offshore wind power production in the north and the significant power consumption regions to the south, with closeness to the first hydrogen grid buildout zone (H2-Startnetz). Our vision is to establish a pioneering, safe, and commercially viable industrial scale energy storage facility while fostering positive relationships with the local community.

Corre Energy has an agreement with Solvay to use up to four underground salt caverns for compressed air energy storage. Together, this could deliver over 500 MW of generating capacity while hydrogen can also be used as a co-fuel in the power generating air expansion unit.
