    1. SANYO to Display Large Battery at Solar Conference

      SANYO to Display Large Battery at Solar Conference
      SANYO is also displaying its advanced energy storage system at the show this year. The system uses 1.6-kWh modules, each with 312 18650 lithium-ion cylindrical cells, the same cell used in laptop computers and automobiles. The modules are scalable to make a 1.6-kWh system or a 1-MWh system operate as one single, giant battery to provide support for renewable energy sources, provide emergency power backup supply, and to help shift peak demand from the daytime high to help utilities manage the distribution network.

    2. Storage Can Solve Grid Overloading by Rooftop Solar

      Storage Can Solve Grid Overloading by Rooftop Solar
      Mr Hart, who owns EcoSouth Solar Electricity, said ... Solar systems "drop out for a few minutes" when voltages get too high, a phenomenon known as "tripping out" … Then they try to come online again and it pushes the voltage up again and it's very wearing" … The network companies say measures such as retrofits and battery storage can stop the "tripping" but can be costly.

      Report: by Research and Markets - "Energy Storage Report 2011 - Insights in New Technologies"
      Although while most interest in storage has focussed on grid-scale applications, there is also a large market for smaller, scale distributed storage. This includes storage at the consumer-side which could meet demand when the upstream part of the grid is offline. To illustrate the point, in 2010 grid-scale storage projects only accounted for just under a third of all storage deals.

    4. Solar Forecasting Meets Storage

      Solar Forecasting Meets Storage
      If grid operators know the energy potential of solar assets down to 1 minute … you could treat solar energy like a pile of coal, you’ll know how much energy there will be to draw upon, Meagher said. “… some solar projects have energy storage and some have forecasting, but integrating the two is what you want,” Kleissl said. He said that with energy storage … an operator could store and later dispatch solar energy during a predicted period of heavy cloud cover.

      Kauai, HI Plans 10MW PV Plant with Storage

      Kauai Island Utility Cooperative plans to develop a 10-megawatt photovoltaic project that would be the largest solar power facility in the state. The KIUC is seeking approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service to pay for the PV and battery storage project with a $68 million federal loan that was previously earmarked for construction of an oil-fired, 10-megawatt combustion turbine generator.

    6. World's 2nd Largest Utility Connects 12MWh Battery

      World's 2nd Largest Utility Connects 12MWh Battery
      China Southern Power Grid (CSG) -- the second largest utility company in the world -- has completed construction of China’s largest battery energy storage station (ESS) as well as the World’s first megawatt-level, grid-connected, environmentally-friendly, Iron-phosphate (Fe) battery storage station for commercial use. “This Energy Storage Station is capable of charging or discharging over 12 Mega-Watt-hours or 3 Mega-Watts for 4 hours off of or onto the grid...” BYD’s Chairman, Chuanfu Wang, notes that BYD is at the cutting edge of “a new energy revolution” across China and aims to “lead the world in installing environmentally-sound, battery energy storage systems.”

    7. S&C's storage solves both nighttime and cloud cover solar intermittency

      S&C's storage solves both nighttime and cloud cover solar intermittency

      There are two sets of batteries. The first … collects electricity during the sun’s peak production hours and releases power in the late afternoon when the sun is not as strong, but when power demand spikes. The second blends the power of a battery with an ultracapacitor. It collects and stores power and is then able to distribute it in spurts as clouds pass over.

      Beacon Power in Pilot Project with NorthWestern Energy

      Once the system is operational later this year, Beacon and NorthWestern Energy will work closely together to develop the flywheel system's control signal algorithms to determine how best to optimize performance of the adjacent DGGS, and to evaluate and quantify the impact and potential benefits of the flywheel resource. The companies will also seek to determine the optimum amount of flywheel regulation capacity for the site should NorthWestern elect to expand the flywheel capacity.

    9. GE Durathon battery plant nearly complete

      GE Durathon battery plant nearly complete
      The battery is made of cells each the size of a toothpaste box, assembled into suitcase-sized modules. About 20 of these modules would be used for a data center; about 200 for a utility grid. GE expects much of its battery business to come from emerging markets, such as Southeast Asia and India, which have weak or no power grids and extreme climates.

    10. Germany's Growing Renewables Boosting Storage Market

      Germany's Growing Renewables Boosting Storage Market
      Over 20 percent of Germany's total energy mix is from renewable sources and this share continues to rise, according to recent estimates. The growth in the energy supply calls for innovative storage technology which has spurred the development of battery and smart grid technology in Germany. Germany Trade & Invest representative will be present at this year's Batteries 2011 which will be held on September 28-30 in Cannes to present opportunities in Germany's battery market.

      NRG Energy to pilot vehicle-to-grid storage in Dallas
      Clean power giant NRG Energy announced on Monday that it will partner on a vehicle-to-grid project that was developed at the University of Delaware. The vehicle-to-grid project (or V2G) will use parked electric vehicles as grid batteries, in order to help stabilize the grid, and also potentially offer electric vehicle owners money to help cover plug-in cars’ extra costs.
