The article reports on how compressed air energy storage (CAES) and other bulk energy storage technologies can help in balancing electrical supply and demand. It is stated that the disparity between production and demand is renewing interest in using CAES. The first CAES plant in the world was E.ON-Kraftwerk's 320-MW plant located in Huntorf, Germany.
