Our company is a collective of dedicated people striving for a sustainable future​

Mine Storage is a Sweden based company founded by people with a background in the energy sector. The idea about large scale fast-responding storage sprung out of the increasing amount of intermittent power generation, which causes unbalances in the transmission grids.

The team wants to contribute to a sustainable future with a fossil free energy production by developing environmentally friendly energy storage plants in abandoned underground mines. This is done with a proven technology, which was installed the first time in 1929.
