Ontario’s Unique Geology That Makes CAES Possible

We know that Compressed Air Energy Storage works, but why does it work? What makes Ontario unique? And how do we know that Compressed Air Energy Storage is safe, reliable and able to meet the challenges of Ontario’s energy future?


A History of CAES

During the second industrial revolution, in 1877, Austrian engineer Carl Albert Mayrhofer designed a compressed air system that emitted a pulse of air every minute to power a network of clocks around Vienna. Within the decade, harnessing the kinetic energy of compressed air went from a relatively novel concept to an 18,000 kW compressor system — as it did in a Parisian power plant designed by Mayrhofer’s apprentice, Viktor Popp, in 1888.


An Update on Bedrock’s CAES

The time has come for widespread adoption of energy storage technologies in Canada. Multiple levels of government have set ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction plans, to not only drive greater adoption of electrification in our daily lives, but to also ensure the electricity sector itself transitions toward a greenhouse gas free system-–Enter Bedrock.

What is CAES?

Environmental sustainability and rising energy costs are top-of-mind for many Ontarians, and rightfully so. As much as rising costs are an issue, so too is
