      China's Goldwind testing storage for grid-scale wind and PV facilities

      In a Beijing industrial park, Chinese manufacturer Goldwind is testing four kinds of batteries that can store the power produced by the 2.5MW turbine and 500kW of solar panels installed on its campus. The micro-grid project is in its early days, but the young engineers in charge say they are already making savings by switching to stored energy during the daytime, when electricity sold by the municipal grid hits peak prices. The results are promising for all of China’s wind companies.

      Saft 3MWh Li-ion storage for Spanish island renewables

      In 2013, a fully integrated Saft ESS capable of delivering 1 MW of power for up to 3 hours will be commissioned on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria. Endesa, Spain's largest electric utility and part of the Inel Group, is leading this project demonstrating how energy storage can maximize the integration of wind or photovoltaic renewable energy within utility networks and optimize the grid infrastructure.

      Water-based battery storage for renewables

       

      [Editor: Note comments under this article about credibility.]

      A water-based sodium battery is an affordable and safe option for renewable storage.  Water is cheaper than organic solvents and has fewer disposal and safety issues.  The aqueous battery is particularly interesting in land-based applications where low weight and high capacity are not critically important.

    10. PV Firms and Utilities Eye Residential Storage

      PV Firms and Utilities Eye Residential Storage

      Pilot projects and early installations suggest that PV storage systems can indeed work.  A case study from EuPD Research concludes that a German family of four with a 5kW system could raise the proportion of their needs served by their PV panels from 25 percent up to 58 percent by integrating a 5kWh battery in the system.
