    2. Conference: GoingGreen 2011 - Brief Summary of Presentations

      Conference: GoingGreen 2011 - Brief Summary of Presentations
      Addressing large-scale deployments, panelists mostly agreed that energy storage will start with private enterprise and subsidized power before heading toward the more mainstream utilities. The panelists also discussed partnering with companies in other countries. China needs power, as does India, which has a fragile grid. Japan now has more utility energy storage than any country. However, Rive argued, any country that considers renewable energy will also need energy storage, though it often lags a bit.

    8. Electric-Car Battery Makers’ Capacity Will Be Double Demand

      By Alex Morales - Wed Sep 14 16:38:58 GMT 2011 Producers of electric-car batteries such as LG Chem Ltd. (051910) and Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI) are building new plants at such a pace that capacity will grow to almost double automakers’ demand, a Bloomberg New Energy Finance report shows. While manufacturers will have capacity to make 35 gigawatt hours of batteries by 2013, carmakers have committed to produce as many as 839,000 plug-

    9. AES Prefers Li-ion, Lead Acid and Flow Batteries for 400MW system bid

      AES Prefers Li-ion, Lead Acid and Flow Batteries for 400MW system bid

      AES is bidding on a 400MW battery storage system for a Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) request for new power. This project [is] an alternative to new generation on Long Island. It's a 1,600-megawatt-hour system providing operating reserve services."When we started in this business, it was unheard of to use lithium-ion," said John Zahurancik, the VP, Deployment and Operations, at AES Energy Storage. But that technology has become the go-to material. "Lithium-ion is understood and packaged," according to Zahurancik, "but we track over 100 technology companies at various levels of activity -- with a handful that we think are in the top tier." These include flow batteries, lithium-ion, and advanced lead acid batteries.

    10. Interview about Vanadium

      Interview about Vanadium
      recently its vanadium's status as a strategic metal, and its use in vanadium redox flow batteries, have caught people's attention. Vanadium redox flow batteries are distinguished from fuel cells because the chemical reaction is reversible, meaning that they can be recharged without replacing the electroactive material. Also, the power and energy density of the batteries are independent of each other.

      Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader
      In the Smart City initiative, storage will come in the form of lithium-ion batteries. There are four small-scale trials overall, including ammonia to hydrogen/nitrogen, graphite, zinc bromine and ultrabatteries. Some of the most dynamic homegrown startups (Wizard Power, ZBB Energy, RedFlow, Ecoult) are also located at the intersection of renewables and storage.
