    1. Nanocomposite electrodes for grid storage supercapacitors

      Nanocomposite electrodes for grid storage supercapacitors
      Univ of Delaware (J. Q. Xiao) has developed a new process for the production of electrodes made of nickel oxide/nickel nanocomposites for electrochemical supercapacitors. They have surprisingly high capacity, high power density, and high current density during the charge/discharge cycles. Their process is simple and cost-effective, and could be scaled up for industry.

    3. MIT Research: New Li battery design for grid and vehicles

      MIT Research: New Li battery design for grid and vehicles
      A radically new approach to the design of batteries, developed at MIT, could provide an alternative vehicle and grid batteries. "Refueling" these batteries could be similar to pumping gas into a car. The new battery relies on an innovative architecture called a semi-solid flow cell in which the electrodes are composed of particles suspended in a liquid electrolyte. [The researcher] cautions that making a practical, commercial version of such a battery will require finding better electrode and electrolyte materials.

      Nat Gas vs Batteries for grid renewable sources
      Grid storage via batteries could smooth out the variability of solar and wind’s [intermittencies, but providing 400 megawatts to meet California's projected needs] would be cost prohibitive. The real answer to improve alternative use and reduce greenhouse gases lies [with] natural gas-fired plants … GE just announced a $500M+, 510MW combined-cycle power plant … [with 61%] fuel efficiency, and can ramp up [its] output at over 50MW per minute.

      Military Wants Bases to be "island microgrids": Storage + Renewables
      Energy officers at military bases are working to turn their facilities into "island microgrids"--entities that can generate and store their own electricity, independent of the surrounding commercial grid. … in the event of a blackout, it could continue to function on electricity generated on-site--largely from renewable sources. These include utility-scale solar arrays, backed up with advance-battery solar-power storage units and diesel generators … Energy experts say that the military's approach could also offer a new model for towns and cities, protecting them from regional-grid blackouts--and boosting local renewable-energy production.
