Corre Energy is focused on the development, construction and future operation of long duration grid scale renewable energy storage solutions to be complemented by the production and sale of green hydrogen, all of which play a key role in the decarbonisation and deployment of renewable energy sources.

 

Corre Energy has exclusive rights to a portfolio of salt caverns for underground energy storage in Europe and is working with tier-1 project partners.

 

Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) is an energy storage technology that involves using electricity from renewable sources to compress air in underground storage caverns which can be released at a later time to generate electricity.

 

Energy transition is a priority of the European Union (EU) with aims to achieve 70% of electricity generation in Europe from renewable sources by 2030. Corre Energy's storage projects are identified as a key priority for future interconnection of EU energy system infrastructure and its pilot project ("ZW1"), located in the Netherlands, has attained Project of Common Interest (PCI) status.

 

Among the key issues to be resolved with renewable energy sources is intermittency (no energy produced when the wind does not blow or the sun does not shine) or curtailment (too much renewable energy produced in stormy situations, or at the wrong time of day, which the grid cannot handle).

 

To resolve these issues, renewable energy needs to be stored during times of excess supply (attracting low prices) so that it can be supplied in times of scarcity/high demand (attracting high prices). 108 gigawatt ("GW") of electricity storage is required to meet EU decarbonisation targets by 2030.

 

Corre Energy, which is currently in development phase, will use renewable electricity to store compressed air in underground salt caverns, which can subsequently be combined with green hydrogen stored in co-located caverns to fuel the generation of electricity. When renewable electricity supply is high resulting in low prices, Corre Energy will compress air into storage caverns and conversely when renewable electricity supplies are low and prices are high, Corre Energy will generate green electricity from CAES. Additionally, Corre Energy will generate revenue from the sale of electricity market balancing services and will sell surplus green hydrogen production to industry.

 

ZW1, the Group's first project is being developed in partnership with Infracapital (part of M&G Group plc). ZW1 is a large-scale renewable electricity storage facility. It will have a generation capacity of 320 megawatt ("MW") and a daily storage/delivery capacity of approximately 3-4 gigawatt-hours ("GWh"). Having already secured grid capacity and commenced permitting this project is expected to come on-stream in 2025/2026, with an expected annual EBITDA of circa €80m by 2030. Typical useful life of the project is targeted at 35 years.

 

Under the partnership, it is intended that Infracapital will fund, subject to the achievement of certain milestones, part of the development and capital expenditure in return for an ownership interest in the project. Corre Energy will retain a significant minority equity interest in this project.

 

· The Group's second project, in Denmark ("DK1"), is also a 320MW facility with fully integrated green hydrogen capability. Corre Energy currently owns 100% of the DK1 CAES plant as well as part ownership of the electrolyser plant in this project. The Group also has a pipeline of EU designated projects across the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark.

·

· Corre Energy has recently secured equity-linked funding of up to €20m from an EIB-backed Italian infrastructure fund managed by Fondo Italiano per l'Efficienza Energetica (FIEE), on achievement of certain milestones. An initial investment of €3 million has already been received by Corre Energy. This investment follows extensive technical and commercial due diligence in respect of the Group and FIEE is now an important strategic and proactive partner.
