abstract

A long sought but elusive goal of the energy industry has been the use of stored compressed air to support utility power production during periods of high electrical demand. While only limited success has been achieved, an emerging hybrid technology may offer an unexpected assist. Hybrid-nuclear energy marries the helium gas reactor with a combined-cycle power plant. This unique and highly flexible combination readily supports a distinctive adaptation of the basic compressed air technology, with the union poised to overcome the shortfalls that have long hampered the wide-scale deployment of the energy storage facilities.
