    1. Can EnerG2’s Carbon Tech Boost Energy Storage?

      EnerG2 has long promised that its super-fine carbon materials technology can deliver big improvements in ultracapacitors, lead-acid batteries and other energy storage devices. Now it’s ready to start churning out “multiple tons per month” to test the market. That’s the capacity of EnerG2’s new factory in Albany, Oregon, according to Chris Wheaton, the startup’s chief operating and financial officer. While he didn’t name any customers, he did specify that the Seattle, Wash.-based company was targeting ultracapacitors and lead-acid batteries as its first markets, and is expected to make a customer announcement in the “next few months.” EnerG2 bills itself as a Carbon Technology Platform (CTP) provider, building nanoscale carbon scaffolds for the anodes, cathodes and other components of energy storage devices made by others. It has raised about $12 million from investors including OVP Venture Partners and Firelake Capital, and also landed a $21.3 million Department of Energy stimulus grant in 2009 to build its plant. The startup’s custom-built carbon structures can add significant benefits to ultracapacitors, the “flash” energy storage devices of the world, Wheaton told me in a Monday interview. Mainly, EnerG2 allows ultracaps to run at higher voltages than ...

    3. Verdant Power Receives First FERC Pilot Project License

      Today, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") issued its first pilot project license for a tidal energy project to Verdant Power, LLC for its Roosevelt Island Tidal Energy ("RITE") Project in New York's East River (pictured at right).  As a first-of-its-kind license, this is a significant step for the burgeoning tidal energy industry in the United States. According to the license, the project will be construted in three phases over a five year period.  When complete, the project will consist of thirty 35-kW, 5-meter-diameter axial flow Kinetic Hydropower System ("KHPS") turbines with a total installed nameplate capacity of 1.05 MW.  Verdant must begin construction on Phase 1 within the next two years and must complete Phase 3 within six years.  The license was issued for the full 10 years requested in Verdant's license application. Although the levelized cost of energy for the RITE project is high relative to other energy sources, the Commission stated clearly that "[t]his project's value . . . lies in its successful testing and demonstration of Verdant's KHPS turbine technology, and the project's ability to raise the profile of, and advance, the emergent tidal energy industry."  The license can be found on ...

      Report by Frost & Sullivan: Decentralized Power Generation: Technology Penetration and Roadmapping

      Most DG units rely on intermittent energy sources, such as wind or solar, which could create voltage and frequency fluctuations in the main electric grid. To remedy this issue, utilities have to deploy smart grids and advanced electricity storage and managing systems.
