The design

Cheesecake Energy is developing advanced thermal and compressed air energy systems to store energy from intermittent renewables, turning them into reliable power on-demand.

Low cost

Cheesecake Energy has patent-pending technology that stores compressed air and heat cost-effectively.


With a modular, containerised design, Cheesecake systems can be set up in a wide range of environments.

Proven technologies

Off-the-shelf compressor hardware, air stores and electrical machinery all contribute to low project risk.


How Cheesecake Energy came into being

  • 2016

    Founding of CEL

    The team observes solar PV costs plummeting but the full potential is still not being exploited. Cheap long-duration storage is recognised as the key enabler, and the team gets to work.

  • 2017-19

    Initial testbed

    Our innovative thermal storage units undergo testing. Further IP is recognised and design and analysis cycles prepare the ground for our 150kW/750kWh demonstrator.

  • 2020-21

    Building the demonstrator

    Working alongside a large industrial corporation, Cheesecake Energy Ltd secures £1.7m in non-dilutive funding to design and manufacture the modular demonstrator plant.

  • 2021-22

    Launching pilot systems

    A number of pilot systems are deployed, leveraging the experiences learned from the demonstrator programme.
