      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.

      Vendor White Paper: Li-Ion Battery Costs Beat Lead Acid in Hot Environments

      AllCell Technologies released a white paper comparing the economics of lithium-ion and lead acid batteries for stationary energy storage systems (ESS). Even though the initial purchase price of lead acid batteries is one-fifth the price of lithium-ion, when analyzed on a full life-cycle basis lithium-ion batteries are now cost-competitive in moderate climates and lower cost in hot climates.

    16. Can EnerG2’s Carbon Tech Boost Energy Storage?

      EnerG2 has long promised that its super-fine carbon materials technology can deliver big improvements in ultracapacitors, lead-acid batteries and other energy storage devices. Now it’s ready to start churning out “multiple tons per month” to test the market. That’s the capacity of EnerG2’s new factory in Albany, Oregon, according to Chris Wheaton, the startup’s chief operating and financial officer. While he didn’t name any customers, he did specify that the Seattle, Wash.-based company was targeting ultracapacitors and lead-acid batteries as its first markets, and is expected to make a customer announcement in the “next few months.” EnerG2 bills itself as a Carbon Technology Platform (CTP) provider, building nanoscale carbon scaffolds for the anodes, cathodes and other components of energy storage devices made by others. It has raised about $12 million from investors including OVP Venture Partners and Firelake Capital, and also landed a $21.3 million Department of Energy stimulus grant in 2009 to build its plant. The startup’s custom-built carbon structures can add significant benefits to ultracapacitors, the “flash” energy storage devices of the world, Wheaton told me in a Monday interview. Mainly, EnerG2 allows ultracaps to run at higher voltages than ...
