In various embodiments, efficiency of energy storage and recovery systems employing compressed air and liquid heat exchange is improved via control of the system operation and/or the properties of the heat-exchange liquid.
1. A method for improving efficiency of a compressed-gas energy storage and recovery system, the method comprising: providing a heat-transfer fluid conditioned to at least one of (i) reduce a solubility of a gas in the heat-transfer fluid or (ii) reduce a rate of dissolution of a gas into the heat-transfer fluid;at least one of (i) compressing the gas to store energy or (ii) expanding the gas to recover energy; andthereduring, exchanging heat between the gas and the conditioned heat-transfer fluid, thereby increasing efficiency of the energy storage and ...
