    1. Report: (Installed) Batteries for Utility-Scale Applications in Asia Pacific Will Surpass 25GW by 2022

      Report: (Installed) Batteries for Utility-Scale Applications in Asia Pacific Will Surpass 25GW by 2022

      Sodium sulfur batteries constitute the largest number of deployed storage projects in the region. While advanced batteries are staged to play a large role in the development of power sectors across Asia Pacific, bulk energy storage technologies, such as pumped hydro, will continue to play an important role in emerging markets like China.

    2. Energy storage issue highlighted (Re: Stanford study - cost of ownership)

      Energy storage issue highlighted (Re: Stanford study - cost of ownership)

      (Stanford researchers) ... worked out the cost of both building the (storage) technology and maintaining it over a 30-year timescale ... to minimise replacement costs. They derived the “energy stored on investment” for each of the seven technologies to work out how much more energy it could store over its lifetime than it took to build and maintain.

      NOTE: This presents one aspect of the Stanford Univ. study reported here.

      Ontario pumped hydro 'battery' is five times the size of Niagara Falls

      Toronto-based Northland is proposing a $700-million, “pumped storage” hydroelectric project that would create a waterfall five times the height of Niagara Falls – though with a fraction of the volume – descending from the slag mountain to the mine pit below.

      TVA belatedly discloses March shut down of pumped storage facility; four rotors cracked

      TVA's pumped storage facility on Raccoon Mountain hasn't worked since March, the result of four cracked rotors. The TVA said Thursday the problem is a design flaw in the 34-year-old, $310M plant. But the plant's outage was kept quiet until last Friday, when TVA CEO told financial analysts that the utility had brought two of its idled coal units back this summer to make up for Raccoon Mountain's lost peak-power generation.

    6. Forbes guest editorial: Storage, not generation, is the challenge to renewable energy

      Forbes guest editorial: Storage, not generation, is the challenge to renewable energy

      By Gregg Maryniak: Chairman of the Energy and Environmental Systems Track of Singularity University and the Secretary of the X PRIZE Foundation

      If we really want to transform the energy sector in a meaningful way, it will require attention to the other relatively ignored storage domain: grid scale power storage.

      EIA: Location, location, location and cost (location-specific storage examples)

      Placing the right storage at a key location can alleviate a supply shortage situation, relieve congestion, defer transmission additions or substation upgrades, or postpone the need for new capacity. These examples illustrate the wide range of storage applications.
