Range Project Timeline
Range’s partners have invested substantial time and resources over the last several years to evaluate, design, and plan for its CAES facility. This includes completion of a permitting and licensing study by Navigant Consulting, Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) studies performed by Dresser-Rand and Hydrodynamics LLC, and preparation of a request for proposals for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services. Range has also pursued financing opportunities through the US Department of Energy and engaged with policymakers in the state of California to assess barriers and improve the market for CAES. As a result of this extensive pre-development activity, and assuming successful off-take negotiations, Range expects it could complete project permitting, cavern development, and facility construction for an in-service date within four years.
