When charged from solar or other renewable electricity sources, Energy Dome compresses carbon dioxide gas. The stored liquified CO2 can then be used to turn a turbine to generate electricity to deliver to the grid as needed.

What if the very carbon dioxide being blamed for global warming was the secret ingredient of massive batteries for the storage of renewable energy meant to prevent additional CO2 from entering the atmosphere in the first place? Italy-based startup Energy Dome has created such a battery that could help fully utilize low-carbon energy while also helping to stabilize electrical grids.
