Brayton Energy received the award from the US Navy’s Broad Area Announcement (BAA) for our proposal “Compressed Air Energy Storage for Island Naval Bases”. The program is coupled to Brayton’s ongoing Navy project to develop a 1 MW-electric CAES expander system, employing our undersea air storage technology. Energy storage at Naval bases is a critical technology to enable remote bases to accept increasing renewable energy. Wind and solar are natural power supplements for the bases which currently burn predominantly diesel fuel. With energy storage, Naval bases can achieve substantial reduction on diesel fuel usage while managing their critical power demands.
