      Liquid Metal Battery Corp Secures Bill Gates & TOTAL funding
      Liquid Metal Battery Corporation (LMBC), a Cambridge, Massachusetts company founded in 2010 to develop new forms of electric storage batteries that work in large, grid-scale applications, announced it had secured the rights to key patent technology from MIT and had received financing from France's Total and from a personal investment by Bill Gates.

    2. Report: Storage Emerging for Commercial Building Market

      Report: Storage Emerging for Commercial Building Market
      Pike Research: The market momentum toward greater energy efficiency in commercial buildings, the proliferation of smart grid technologies, and the growth of grid and distributed renewables are driving heightened interest in energy storage in commercial buildings. Buildings represent a large portion of total energy consumption, and many of their occupants are actively seeking ways of managing their energy costs through efficiency measures as well as innovative means of optimizing their expenditures under time of use (TOU) electricity rates and other variable pricing structures.

      VC Cleantech investing drops by 1/3rd; New focus is efficiency
      VCs pumped $1.83 billion into 161 deals in N. America, Europe, China and India during the second quarter of this year, down 33 percent from the $2.75 billion in the second quarter in 2010, and 10 percent below the $2.03 billion that private cleantech companies raked in during the first quarter of this year. While solar was the biggest draw in 2010, energy efficiency technologies have been steadily attracting more money and deals in 2011.

    4. Grid-Scale Thermal Energy Storage Prospects

      Grid-Scale Thermal Energy Storage Prospects
      Future thermal energy storage will cover the temperature range from sub-freezing to 1000°C. Heat-of-fusion technologies offer greatly extended useful service lives and cost-competitive long-term costs. Most thermal energy storage systems will be built on a large scale that involve massive volume. Most future research may involve high-temperature systems that generate steam and energize air turbine engines.

    6. Renewables Boom Could Strain Germany's Grid

      Renewables Boom Could Strain Germany's Grid
      Dena energy agency director, Stephan Kohler, said: "My demands for the new renewable energy laws would be that additional capacity is to be built only where there is an existing network infrastructure … Another prerequisite would be that it must be possible to absorb the new capacity through demand side management or integrate it in storage systems at a European level".

    7. Google Study: "Clean Energy Innovation" - Storage

      Google Study: "Clean Energy Innovation" - Storage
      Storage helps integrate intermittent renewables like wind and solar, shape demand, and prevent service interruptions. Two basic types of breakthroughs in grid-storage were modeled: short duration storage capable of discharging loads for less than 1 hour; and larger scale storage capable of discharging for over 1 hour. We then modeled five business cases for storage: 1) Frequency Regulation; 2) Load Following; 3) Price Arbitraging; 4) Capacity Deferment; and 5) Grid Reliability. State and federal policies remained the same as BAU.

      ABB Pumped Hydro Makes a Canary Island 100% Renewably Powered
      The project’s goal is to provide inhabitants with all the energy they need through a combination of wind energy, pumped water-storage power and solar-thermal and photovoltaic systems. ABB is helping to lead the project by providing technology to electrify and control the hydro-power plant and integrate energy from renewable sources into the island’s grid.
