    4. Energy storage: Could hydrogen be the answer?

      Energy storage: Could hydrogen be the answer?

      “The investment costs and amount of land required for pumped hydro and CAES are very high,” explains Suba Arunkumar, author of a Frost and Sullivan market report. “And batteries cannot cope with the large amount of energy storage required for large-scale energy storage applications. Hydrogen has the potential to be an online power source with automatic control that can respond rapidly to correct fluctuations, with a response time of less than a minute.”

      Profile of Danielle Fong, 19 year old founder of LightSail (CAES)

      Danielle Fong was 19 years old when she founded LightSail, a company to perfect green energy storage and utilization.  Not bad for a middle school dropout – except that this dropout entered college at the age of 12, graduated with honors at 17 and then proceeded to join a Princeton PhD program in the Plasma Physics Lab.

    10. LightSail's Compressed Air Grid Storage Explanation (good overview)

      LightSail's Compressed Air Grid Storage Explanation (good overview)

      To make CAES more efficient, the LightSail system captures and stores both the mechanical energy and the thermal energy used in compressing air.  To do this, a water mist is infused into the compression chamber as the air is compressed. Water can hold 3,300 times as much heat as the same volume of air, and is able to capture the heat generated by the process more effectively.  Both potential energy in the form of pressurized air and the heated water can be stored.
