Chex Energy Storage works by storing energy in the form of compressed gas in a high pressure tank. This gas is then released into a closed plumbing system, causing it to expand.
This expanding gas enters a tank full of water, and as it enters it pushes the water through a pipe and into a water turbine. The water that passes through the turbine flows into an empty tank until it is full. Once full, more gas is released, which now enters this second tank to push the water back into the turbine and into the now empty first tank.
This process is cyclical and uses a constant amount of water. The length of each cycle and the amount of power that can be produced depends on the size of each tank and the flow of water through the turbine. This allows different types of applications.
In this way, Chex ES can store any type of energy just like a battery, but in a truly sustainable way, since it does not require chemicals that are harmful to the environment to operate.
