die durch Windräder produzierte Energie zu speichern
" .. NIMROD Energy Ltd is being launched 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 centered 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 .. "

Weiter wird da berichtet, daß das Projekt bereits so weit fortgeschritten ist, daß man damit rechnet schon 2020 etwa 25% der benötigten Energie auf diesem Wege bereitzustellen ....
