      UniEnergy Selects Northern Power Systems' Converters for Energy Storage Project

      UniEnergy Technologies (UET) and Avista have selected Northern Power Systems to deliver advanced power conversion for the largest capacity flow battery installed in North America. Situated near Pullman, Washington near Washington State University and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, the battery started operations last April. UniEnergy Technologies manufactured the battery, which is integrated with Northern Power Systems' power converters. The UET system is an advanced vanadium flow battery, which uses Pacific Northwest National Laboratories technology that was developed with funding from the Department of Energy's Office of Electricity. Avista has till now used the system for load shifting, frequency regulation, and voltage regulation on the distribution circuit in Pullman.

    5. 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.

      A Look at the Biggest Energy Storage Projects Built Around the World in the Last Year

      Last year will likely be remembered as the year that energy storage got serious. While projects of all sizes were installed in record numbers, distributed storage received outsized attention -- particularly in the U.S. But what of the larger grid-scale projects? We thought it would be helpful to round up some of the biggest energy storage projects that went live last year around the world.

      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.
