    1. US Energy Storage Industry Sees First-Quarter Investments Double and New Partnerships Emerge

      US Energy Storage Industry Sees First-Quarter Investments Double and New Partnerships Emerge

      The American energy storage sector kicked off 2016 with a marked increase in corporate investments, according to GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association’s latest U.S. Energy Storage Monitor. First-quarter investments of $79 million marked an increase of more than double compared to the same period last year. Of that money, $20 million came as project financing. It's worth noting that with a relatively small number of disclosed deals each year (39 in 2014 and 32 in 2015), a few big investments can significantly sway the quarterly tally. The largest of the 11 disclosed deals from Q1 2016, the Series C investment in Sunverge by Australian energy retailer AGL Energy and Japanese trading house Mitsui, totaled $36.5 million. That's almost half of all corporate investments for the quarter. Still, the numbers indicate there is more growth to come, said Ravi Manghani, GTM Research’s director of energy storage and lead author of the report.

      Sumitomo Electric's New Storage Battery is Big Where it Counts

      OSAKA -- Sumitomo Electric Industries plans to release worldwide this autumn a large-scale storage battery system boasting higher capacity in a smaller, cheaper package than its current offering. The new redox flow battery system takes up just half as much space. An all-in-one design for main components, such as liquid tanks and a pump, enables all necessary devices and parts to fit in a conventional cargo container. This makes the system easier to transport by cargo ship or truck and to set up once delivered. The new product more than halves the time and cost of installation from the current model, which must be assembled at the destination.

      From Liquid Air to Supercapacitors, Energy Storage is Finally Poised for a Breakthrough

      It doesn’t always rain when you need water, so we have reservoirs - but we don’t have the same system for electricity,” says Jill Cainey, director of the UK’s Electricity Storage Network. But that may change in 2016, with industry figures predicting a breakthrough year for a technology not only seen as vital to the large-scale rollout of renewable energy, but also offering the prospect of lowering customers’ energy bills. Big batteries, whose costs are plunging, are leading the way. But a host of other technologies, from existing schemes like splitting water to create hydrogen, compressing air in underground caverns, flywheels and heated gravel pits, to longer term bets like supercapacitors and superconducting magnets, are also jostling for position.

      Arotech Corporation, a provider of quality defense and security products for the military, law enforcement and homeland security markets, announced today that its Power Systems Division has received an additional grant from the Israel Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) for its Grid Storage Flow Battery Program. The new non-dilutive OCS funding is for approximately $720,000 and is intended to cover 40% of the planned R&D budget for 2016. The Iron/Iron flow battery is intended to create an affordable technology that delivers a reliable on-demand supply of stored energy that accommodates the highly variable nature of renewable energy sources, acts as a back-up during power disruptions and also as a load-leveler for conventional power sources balancing between supply and demand. The resultant product is expected to be very safe, have a long operating life and a very low system cost versus competing technologies at below $250/kWh, due to its use of Iron, an abundant element.
