      (Surrette) batteries help power Scottish isles

      Eigg (island) has a total energy storage capacity of 212kWh, using several banks of 24 Rolls four-volt batteries to power their homes and facilities.  Up to 50% of the stored energy is discharged from each bank, while a combination of wind, solar and hydroelectric sources, with a diesel backup, recharges the battery bank for the next day.

      Opinion: Exide - Many Alliances, Fewer Results

      if Johnson Controls acquires A123's assets, Exide may be under more competitive pressure.  The deal would involve the transfer of supporting technologies and could give Johnson Controls an edge over Exide in the transportation market that appears to be centering on lithium ion technologies.  That means Exide will need to do more than bootstrap its reputation as an innovator with press releases and MOUs.

      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.
