    1. Research: Iron vs Vanadium for solar flow battery storage

      Research: Iron vs Vanadium for solar flow battery storage
      Researchers around the world are already building successful flow batteries, but usually using Vanadium, a rare metal mined in Russia and South Africa that sells for $8 to $25 per pound in its raw form, according to the release. Iron, on the other hand, is plentiful in North America and sells for just 25 cents per pound after processing.

    2. Stealthy Small Scale Commercial/Industrial Storage Startups

      Stealthy Small Scale Commercial/Industrial Storage Startups

      Powergetics is targeting small businesses and using relatively small-scale lithium-ion batteries to provide ancillary services and value for customers that don't have loads large enough for the wholesale demand response market ... Solar Storage technology is "distributed, on-demand solar, with proprietary power and storage technology for 24-hour power from 100 kilowatts to 20 megawatts." The firm is doing enterprise and commercial-level solar/storage hybrid systems.

    3. Lithium Over-Supply Through 2017 - Li Battery Producers Benefit

      Lithium Over-Supply Through 2017 - Li Battery Producers Benefit
      Many lithium research analysts believe the global recession places the industry into over-supply through 2013, with a return to balance expected through to 2017 considering existing supply. With the addition of total pipeline projects, the over-supply scenario is projected to continue as late as 2018. Regardless, lithium producers with established pipelines and secondary lithium users, such as manufacturing batteries, can still anticipate growth through the coming decade as they are able to leverage market position to their advantage.

    4. Google-backed $5B underwater power line for offshore wind farms clears hurdle

      Google-backed $5B underwater power line for offshore wind farms clears hurdle
      The project, which consists of two parallel transmission lines stretching from northern New Jersey to southern Virginia, could transport up to 6,000 megawatts of electricity that would provide power to 1.9 million households. The transmission lines would each extend 250 miles along the mid-Atlantic coast. The electricity carried by the lines would connect with the main electric grid at onshore sites in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.

    5. Batteries Instead of New Power Plant on Long Island?

      Batteries Instead of New Power Plant on Long Island?
      When the Long Island Power Authority said last summer that it was going to need new power capacity in the next few years, most people assumed that meant new generating stations or new transmission cables. But of the 16 companies that submitted proposals, one, AES Energy Storage, took an entirely different tack: it proposed batteries.

    6. PG&E Sinks Wave Power

      PG&E Sinks Wave Power
      California utility PG&E is finally giving up on wave power ... essentially it has abandoned all wave power projects it had been researching, including pilot projects and permits for three areas along the California coast ... According to research done by Black and Veatch last year, ocean power — both wave and tidal — have one of the highest levelized costs of energy (the cost over the life of the system) out of all the clean energy generation options.

    7. Li-ion Battery Recycling is Difficult; Lead Acid Recycling is Profitable

      Lithium iron phosphate batteries from A123 Systems (AONE) and Valence Technologies (VLNC), lithium manganese batteries from Ener1 (HEV) and lithium titanate batteries from Altair Nanotechnologies (ALTI) will never be reasonable candidates for recycling, which effectively guarantees that buyers will ultimately be required to pay huge up-front disposal fees ... Lead-acid batteries are the most widely recycled product in the world because they're 70% lead by weight, the recycling process is simple and a robust global recycling infrastructure already exists. Many leading lead-acid battery manufacturers including Johnson Controls (JCI) and Exide Technologies (XIDE) view their recycling operations as major profit centers that also insure continuity of raw materials supply.

    8. Security Value of Grid Storage

      The energy security benefit of grid-connected storage largely arises from two attributes of certain storage applications. The first is the ability of energy storage, when deployed on the distribution portion of the grid, to permit the formation of local micro-grids, which can protect the grid from disruption cause by attacks and natural disasters. The second is the ability of distributed energy storage systems that use vehicle-compatible batteries to help bring down the cost of electric vehicles and reduce petroleum imports.
