      Pure-play battery or hybrid grid energy storage? | Energy Storage News

      Transmission and distribution (T&D) organizations within electric utilities are transitioning to battery-based grid energy storage solutions. As a result, these groups are reporting that the applications for this “reservoir of electrons” reaches far beyond the grid applications that they are now busy solving. Even regional energy system operators such as independent system operators (ISOs), distribution system operators (DSOs) and transmission system operators (TSOs) are implementing these advanced battery energy storage systems as a means of providing stability and reliability within their respective energy system service territories.

      Supercapacitors Market: Some Leading Market Players are Advanced Capacitor Technologies, Inc., Axion Power International, Inc. and Others

      A supercapacitor or an ultracapacitor, is a high-capacity electrochemical capacitor with capacitance values as large as thousand farads. Supercapacitors combines the properties of traditional batteries and capacitor in a single component. Supercapacitors find their usage in applications requiring rapid charge/discharge time rather than long term energy storage. They are used for regenerative braking, burst-mode power delivery or short-term energy storage within trains, cranes, cars, buses, elevators and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Smaller units of supercapacitors are utilized as memory backup for static random-access memory (SRAM). Additionally, supercapacitors are also used in applications involving solar power, batteries, battery back-up, and flash-lights.

    4. Ireland's First Combined Ultracapacitor & Energy Storage Facility

      Ireland's First Combined Ultracapacitor & Energy Storage Facility

      Ireland intends to achieve 40% renewable energy by 2020. This is an ambitious goal, considering most of this electricity comes from large-scale wind farms. “The challenge is that it is an island grid, with only limited connection to the UK,” said Klaus Harder, Business Development Manager at FREQCON GmbH. Some winter nights, the Irish grid will have to take 75% of its electricity from renewable sources. This calls for additional services, so FREQCON deployed Ireland’s first ­combined ultracapacitor & energy storage facility for the Tallaght Smart Grid Testbed in South Dublin County.
