Integrated Compressed Air Renewable Energy Systems (ICARES)

Cheap and green -- new Nottingham spin-out to revolutionize sustainable

Zero-carbon, renewable energy which is cost-competitive with fossil fuel
generated sources is surely the Holy Grail of the engineering world.

Now, a new spin-out company from The University of Nottingham is aiming
to prove that far from being just a pipe dream, one new form of green
energy could be in widespread use within 15 years and at a fraction of
the cost of its nearest competitor.

NIMROD Energy Ltd is being launched this week by Professor Seamus
Garvey, based on the Integrated Compressed Air Renewable Energy Systems
(ICARES) research which he has been developing since early in 2006.

The technology is centred on a simple premise — using giant wind
turbines to compress and pump air into huge undersea Energy Bags™
anchored to the seabed — or geological formations where deep water is
not available. The high pressure air would be expanded in special
turbo-generator sets to provide electricity as required — not just when
the wind is blowing. It would see vast floating offshore 'energy farms'
created off the coastline around the UK.
