      California: Ground Zero For Battery-Backed Solar (brief overview of many storage companies)

      As renewables grow into double-digit penetration on the grid, they’re expected to need careful management by utilities seeking to balance them. While weather and load forecasting, smart inverters, demand response and other smart grid-enabled technologies can handle some of the intermittency, much of it must be backed up with real power, either with natural gas-fired peaker plants or with energy storage.

      GE's new battery - more details

      [This article provides more details than the original July 10 news.]

      The batteries could also be used to store power from wind turbines and solar panels to even out fluctuations in these power sources. GE also says they could be used in microgrids, small grids that are often the size of a village or military base and are designed to operate independently of the larger electrical grid while still getting grid-quality electricity.

      Opinion: "All-in costs" of a storage system

      An analysis of energy storage device costs is meaningless at anything less than a systems level that includes the all-in costs of cells, packs, thermal management systems [TMS], battery management systems [BMS], power conditioning systems [PCS], and, in the case of stationary products for the electric grid, land, construction and interconnection costs

      Brief explanation of major electrochemical and mechanical storage systems

      Some storage is mechanical (flywheels, pumped hydro, compressed air). These have low energy efficiencies and slow response times. Pumped hydro and compressed air storage systems are also restricted by geography, high investments, and long construction times.  Electrochemical energy storage systems – batteries – offer many benefits and advantages compared with other forms of storage.

      GNB Industrial Power unveils grid storage system

      This new "ready to use" battery storage system is modular and easily transportable by truck or sea. It is based on a twenty foot sea container which acts as a compact and low cost battery room ("energy module"), and a ten foot container for the AC/DC converter and AC-grid connection ("power module"). Each module serves as a building block from which solutions can be assembled to a customer's specific requirements and installed with the minimum preparation.
