      Opinion: Storage Empowers Consumers, Smart Grid Punishes/Rewards
      [Smart Grid] Demand response does not empower anybody. It is about persuading electricity consumers to behave in a way they would prefer not to behave by imposing a system of economic rewards and punishments … The utilities should take the expense of back-up power off the backs of consumers and provide it as part of basic electricity service. This … gives consumers something of value and gives utilities a salable smart grid consumer benefit. The distributed storage units can become the information hubs of the smart grid, rather than the consumer home [with all the privacy issues].

      Schneider Buys Weather Forecaster: When to Charge & Drain Storage
      [weather forecasting could] estimate generation by distributed resources such as solar and wind. They're dependent on the weather also. Throw in some distributed storage. You’d know when to charge it and when to drain it to minimize cost and/or maximize efficiency. No wonder Schneider Electric has acquired Telvent … which offers global precision weather forecasting.

    4. Alberta Study: Energy storage key for wind power producers

      Alberta Study: Energy storage key for wind power producers
      Alberta (Canada) wholesale power prices fluctuate every 10 minutes. The new study, released this week, examined generation from several wind farms and power prices during that period. It found wind farms could have increased their revenue by up to 43% if they had been able to store power and add it to the market as demand - and prices - increased. When prices were lower, they could recharge their storage.

    5. Opinion: Govt should fund storage research; not manufacturing

      Opinion: Govt should fund storage research; not manufacturing
      Achieving next-generation storage will take years. False starts will abound. Partial breakthroughs will need to be freely shared. Such long-horizon projects are anathema to the private sector, but well-suited to government support, with the U.S., Germany, China and Japan leading the way … Taking fewer risks on the factory floor, and more in the research lab, would be the wisest use of government money.
