    1. ARPA-E Invests $37M in Thermal Storage, $120M on Other Energy Research

      ARPA-E Invests $37M in Thermal Storage, $120M on Other Energy Research
      Using innovative nanomaterials, MIT will develop a thermal energy storage device, or a heat battery, that captures and stores energy from the sun to be released onto the grid at a later time. This energy storage device called ‘HybriSol’ is transportable like fuels, 100% renewable, rechargeable like a battery and emissions-free. In addition, ‘Hybrisol’ can be used without a grid infrastructure for applications such as heating and water purification. If successful, this heat battery could have an unprecedented impact on efforts to decrease fossil fuel consumption and emissions, enabling clean solar energy to be accessible 24 hours a day.

    2. S&C's storage solves both nighttime and cloud cover solar intermittency

      S&C's storage solves both nighttime and cloud cover solar intermittency

      There are two sets of batteries. The first … collects electricity during the sun’s peak production hours and releases power in the late afternoon when the sun is not as strong, but when power demand spikes. The second blends the power of a battery with an ultracapacitor. It collects and stores power and is then able to distribute it in spurts as clouds pass over.

      Beacon Power in Pilot Project with NorthWestern Energy

      Once the system is operational later this year, Beacon and NorthWestern Energy will work closely together to develop the flywheel system's control signal algorithms to determine how best to optimize performance of the adjacent DGGS, and to evaluate and quantify the impact and potential benefits of the flywheel resource. The companies will also seek to determine the optimum amount of flywheel regulation capacity for the site should NorthWestern elect to expand the flywheel capacity.

      GE Durathon battery plant nearly complete
      The battery is made of cells each the size of a toothpaste box, assembled into suitcase-sized modules. About 20 of these modules would be used for a data center; about 200 for a utility grid. GE expects much of its battery business to come from emerging markets, such as Southeast Asia and India, which have weak or no power grids and extreme climates.

    7. Conference: GoingGreen 2011 - Brief Summary of Presentations

      Conference: GoingGreen 2011 - Brief Summary of Presentations
      Addressing large-scale deployments, panelists mostly agreed that energy storage will start with private enterprise and subsidized power before heading toward the more mainstream utilities. The panelists also discussed partnering with companies in other countries. China needs power, as does India, which has a fragile grid. Japan now has more utility energy storage than any country. However, Rive argued, any country that considers renewable energy will also need energy storage, though it often lags a bit.
