      Distributed Storage Will Enable More Efficient, More Secure Energy Infrastructure

      Energy and its ubiquitous supply are taken for granted in our lives today. A spontaneous loss of power at grid level, instigated by manmade or natural disaster, would cause failures and chaos on a massive scale. We propose the establishment of a revitalized energy infrastructure predicated on a robust network of distributed energy storage devices that can provide the necessary backup and instantaneous readiness to fill any void in grid supply.

      New Batteries Make Rapid Progress, But Market Expectations Move Faster

      Whether it's electric cars or smoothing over the ever-shifting output from solar panels, saving and supplying electricity on demand is an important part of the technical solution to climate change. But as the technology inches forward, smartphones still struggle to make it through a whole day without charging up, battery-powered cars are too expensive or too limited in range for most consumers, and grid operators are still scratching their heads over how to price energy storage alongside power plants. Getting energy storage to the right performance and price targets would be a huge boon to many clean technologies, but progress has been frustratingly slow, especially for those hoping for humanity to invent its way out of global warming.

      Opposites Attract: A Story of Sun & Ice and Other Energy Storage Innovations

      Ice Energy harnesses the properties of freezing and thawing water and offers this as a distributed energy storage solution for the grid. Already installed in several commercial buildings, their ‘Ice Bear’ freezes water when demand for power is low and then uses the ice for cooling purposes, making power-hungry Air Con units redundant. But this innovative company is going even further by showing that opposites really do attract. They announced at ESNA that they plan to pair their ice with – yes, that’s right, solar, using excess PV energy to create their ice.

      Magnetically Controlled Battery Could Store Energy for Power Grids

      Scientists have built a battery containing a magnetic fluid that can be moved in any direction by applying a magnetic field. The magnetically controlled battery concept could be especially useful for flow batteries, where it could eliminate the need for the pumps that are typically required for moving the electrolyte from an external storage tank to the inside of a power stack to provide electricity. Flow batteries are being actively researched as large-scale energy storage devices for power grids, where they could store energy captured by intermittent alternative energy sources such as wind and solar.

      Flow Battery Funding: Vionx Teams With Siemens, UTC, 3M, Starwood and Jabil

      Flow batteries are energy-storage systems that pump electrolyte through stacks of electrochemical cells. It's one of the few battery formats that might affordably store energy for multiple hours at a time. And it's that potential for economical, long-duration energy storage that has lured VC investment and R&D -- but so far, the investment has yielded very little commercial, competitive flow battery product. Nevertheless, today, two flow battery startups are reporting new funding and new strategic direction as this high-potential technology looks to win a larger share of the growing energy storage pie.

      As with other international solar events including Intersolar Europe in June and Solar Energy UK in October, the show will put more emphasis on energy storage and batteries than before, running a dedicated energy storage pavilion. While there has been a growing understanding that solar and storage are likely to be two separate industries in future, or rather, two separate parts of the distributed energy networks of the future, the use of storage in combination with solar is still very much likely to be a focal point for the show.
