    1. International Battery’s Utility-Scale Li-Ion Goes After Solar

      International Battery’s Utility-Scale Li-Ion Goes After Solar
      "What makes us different is that we develop and manufacture large-format prismatic lithium-ion cells using a water-based manufacturing process. We work with lithium-iron phosphate and lithium cobalt manganese, but we are chemistry agnostic -- we are not an inventor of lithium chemistries." said [former] CEO Almgren.

    2. Opinion: Storage Empowers Consumers, Smart Grid Punishes/Rewards

      Opinion: Storage Empowers Consumers, Smart Grid Punishes/Rewards
      [Smart Grid] Demand response does not empower anybody. It is about persuading electricity consumers to behave in a way they would prefer not to behave by imposing a system of economic rewards and punishments … The utilities should take the expense of back-up power off the backs of consumers and provide it as part of basic electricity service. This … gives consumers something of value and gives utilities a salable smart grid consumer benefit. The distributed storage units can become the information hubs of the smart grid, rather than the consumer home [with all the privacy issues].

    3. Schneider Buys Weather Forecaster: When to Charge & Drain Storage

      Schneider Buys Weather Forecaster: When to Charge & Drain Storage
      [weather forecasting could] estimate generation by distributed resources such as solar and wind. They're dependent on the weather also. Throw in some distributed storage. You’d know when to charge it and when to drain it to minimize cost and/or maximize efficiency. No wonder Schneider Electric has acquired Telvent … which offers global precision weather forecasting.

    4. Interview: Strategic Significance of Storage

      Energy storage, in theory at least, is a technology with enormous potential to change the way energy is transported, dispatched and consumed. Because the energy sector is dynamic and technologies evolve every bit as fast, I spoke about energy storage with Edwin F. Feo, the managing partner of USRG Renewable Finance, one of the country’s largest private equity firms for renewable energy, biofuels and cleantech infrastructure.

      Germany's Growing Renewables Boosting Storage Market
      Over 20 percent of Germany's total energy mix is from renewable sources and this share continues to rise, according to recent estimates. The growth in the energy supply calls for innovative storage technology which has spurred the development of battery and smart grid technology in Germany. Germany Trade & Invest representative will be present at this year's Batteries 2011 which will be held on September 28-30 in Cannes to present opportunities in Germany's battery market.

    8. Military's Storage and Smart Grid Plans Benefit All

      Military's Storage and Smart Grid Plans Benefit All

      Certainly there are a number of civilian or community-based microgrids under way too – but perhaps not with the urgency that is behind the military's microgrid maneuvers. For instance, in recent weeks alone: … ZBB Energy Corp. won a Navy contract to provide a 1000kWH energy storage system for use in a microgrid application at the San Nicolas Island Naval Facility off the California coast.
