Cheesecake Energy

A Nottingham, UK-based energy storage startup

Company overview

A spin-out of the University of Nottingham, Cheesecake Energy (CEL) is developing the world’s greenest energy storage technology, lowering the cost of medium to long-duration energy storage, and turning renewable energy sources like wind and solar into reliable, on-demand power.

CEL’s breakthrough system uses thermal energy storage and compressed air to achieve costs that are 30-40% lower than that of the cheapest batteries currently available, by repurposing long-lasting, proven industrial components from existing automotive, oil, and gas equipment supply chains.
