compressed air storage lowtechmagazine.com which describes the results of the two papers below. 470watthours per kg is possible(5bar) by using modular small tanks(fire extinguishers). Stack multiple containers and release the air energy with solenoid valves in sync to drive a turbine. Efficiency is much greater than using a single large container.

air powered electrical generator[edit | edit source]
https://patents.google.com/patent/US20140049047 An air powered electrical generator includes an air compressor, an electrical motor for powering the air compressor and a compressed air storage tank. A fan, a valve and a pipe direct released air onto the fan to thereby rotate the fan and two electrical generators. A battery and a battery charger provide power for the electric motor so that the air powered electric generator can be moved to a pre-selected location to provide electric energy.

http://kair-energy.com/index.php from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compressed_air_car#cite_note-39 . This is probably a better solution than stirling engines. K°Air’s Pressure Power System: K°Air has developed its multi-patent pending Pressure Power System that is the first and only to harness the Ambient Temperature of the existing surroundings, ranging from only 0°C to 35°C, to produce electricity, as opposed to the 300°C to 650°C required by steam turbines. This Ambient Temperature is sourced from the temperature outdoors; the room temperature of a building, office or home; or the temperature inside a manufacturing or industrial facility, where the temperature is warmer because of the heat generated from operations such as a foundry, manufacturing, mining, pulp & paper, textiles, commercial kitchens & bakeries, or dry cleaning. The K°Air Pressure Power System can achieve an average capacity utilization ranging from 75% to 95% from the Ambient Temperature alone, which can be increased if and when necessary from other sources of green energy including solar, wind or water mills, geothermal, biomass and commercial or industrial heat recovery sources. The K°Air Pressure Power System represents a major improvement of steam turbine generator systems, which currently produce more than 80% of the world's supply of electricity.
