The intended location is in Zuidwending, between the Provincialeweg N366 and the Zoutweg, next to the Heeresmeer. This is a logical location because storage is already taking place nearby. You cannot just build a compressed air installation anywhere, there are several factors that play a major role in this.
Some of the factors that must be considered include the following:
Little to no activities will take place in the coming year. At present, the intended start date of this project is 2023, and the first work related to a test drilling will be carried out. In the design phase, we study possible noise nuisance as well as the necessary restrictive measures, ensuring that the area is considered as much as possible during installation.
As part of the permitting process, we will work with key stakeholders to ensure noise reduction measures are included in the project design; this also applies to considering the impact of traffic. During the design phase, we will investigate the potential impact of the project on traffic, not only in terms of noise, but the overall effect during the construction and implementation phase. We look at the possibilities of the design to minimise the total impact.

The first large-scale electricity storage facility in the Netherlands is in Zuidwending, in the province of Groningen. It is being developed by Corre Energy Storage BV.
This project has been designated as a project of common interest (PCI) project. This means that the project is regarded by the European Union to be of common interest, and an important building block in the future of the continent’s energy infrastructure.
Commissioning of the project is planned for 2026. This highly innovative project will make it possible to realise a new, 100% renewable technology for large-scale energy storage across Europe.
Compressed Air Energy Storage, or CAES, is the storage of compressed air to produce energy. It is also known as Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES). Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) can store energy cost-effectively for longer periods of time than batteries, has a longer lifespan, and lower environmental impact with a lower overall carbon footprint.
