      Storage technology categories with examples of companies in each

      There are many energy storage options which can be used balance grid systems so as to compensate for the variable output from some renewables. They include existing and newly emerging electro-chemical and electro-mechanical systems (batteries, pumped storage and compressed air storage), as well as a range of thermal and hydrogen based systems www.electricitystorage.org/ .

      Advanced Rail Energy Storage uses electric locomotives

      ARES’ technology uses heavy rail cars that are pushed to the top of a grade using excess power from renewable energy plants or when electricity demand is low. Then, when the wind drops, the sun stops shining, or electricity demand rises, the rail cars are released back down the hill, generating electricity through regenerative braking.

      Ludington Pumped Storage Plant Recognized For 40 Years Of Service

      In its 40th year of operating, Ludington Pumped Storage began the process of an $800 million upgrade, which includes the replacement of its six turbines with more efficient models. The six-year project will increase the plant's generating capacity by 15 percent and its efficiency by 5 percent. Once the overhaul is complete, the plant will be able to produce enough electricity to power a community of 1.65 million, up from 1.4 million currently.

      MIT Report: Ocean Renewable Energy Storage (ORES) System: Analysis of an Undersea Energy Storage Concept

      The system would be grid-connected, so the spheres could also be used to store energy from other sources, including solar arrays on shore, or from base-load power plants, which operate most efficiently at steady levels. This could potentially reduce reliance on peak-power plants, which typically operate less efficiently.
