To improve the thermodynamic efficiency of compressed air energy storage system, a novel compressed gas energy storage system using supercritical carbon dioxide was proposed. Energy and exergy analyses were used to study the thermodynamic performance of the novel energy storage system. The thermodynamic analysis results show that the energy storage system based on supercritical CO 2 has a better performance and simpler system configurations compared with CAES (Compressed Air Energy Storage ,

And the highest exergy destruction occurs in the recuperator, accounting 36.51% of the total system exergy destruction, followed by the heater (32.33%) and then turbine, low-pressure reservoir etc.
