Today, energy systems are moving towards a smart configuration in which there is not only an absolute supply by renewable and sustainable sources but also a high integration of different energy sectors. Having renewable energy technologies highly penetrated in an energy system necessitates the existence of efficient and reliable energy storage systems. This is especially of much importance in the electricity sector where wind turbines and PV panels will be dominating soon. Subcooled-compressed air energy storage system is a new electricity storage-trigeneration concept recently introduced to the literature. This system offers a low electricity-to-electricity efficiency but a very high net coefficient of performance owing to its heat and cold production potentials. Being a trigeneration solution, this system can make a reliable integration of the three energy sectors as well. This chapter will introduce the newly emerging concept, present a thorough thermodynamic, economic and environmental performance analysis of it and will discuss its possible position in the future energy systems.
