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.

We qualify and secure the rights to attractive sites, build profitable business cases for each site, secure the financial structures, design, and construct the plants. We also provide operational support to our customers for the plants we are not owning.
