      DC-linked Microgrid Planned…Wind-Powered Microgrids Aim for Net Zero…& More

      Canadian company ARDA Power and Austria-based Gildemeister energy storage GmbH are collaborating on a DC-linked microgrid in Burlington, Ontario. The DC-linked microgrid will include multiple energy sources (among them solar and gas generation), energy storage, and direct current and alternating current loads. The sources, storage and loads will all be integrated onto a single DC bus using the ARDA DC Microgrid Platform. The platform provides for increased efficiency, reduced cost and improved resiliency, while enabling the provision of ancillary services to the AC grid, according to ARDA Power.

      MESA, Vanadium Batteries Put to the Test in Pacific Northwest

      THE FUTURE OF utility-scale energy storage could soon be on display in the Pacific Northwest. Three Washington state utilities are deploying a total of five cutting-edge battery storage systems that will be evaluated by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. Three of the systems were constructed according to a set of standards designed to make utility-scale storage systems easier and cheaper to build, and two use a new type of battery system based on technology developed at the lab.

      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.

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

      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 Announces New Grant from Israel Office of the Chief Scientist for Grid Storage Flow Battery

      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.

      Bigger Than Batteries: Why the Cost of Other Components Matters to Storage Deployment

      When it comes to energy storage systems, the cost of the battery itself receives a great deal of attention, but a new report shows that the plummeting price of other storage components could prove just as significant for the proliferation of the resource. The 15 to 20 different items in the balance of the system (BOS) represent one-half to three-fourths of the installation’s cost. Those costs are likely to plummet over the next five years – if the growth of storage deployment continues.
