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

      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.

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

      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.

      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.
