      Eos Energy to Soon Crank Out Zinc-Air Batteries

      Power companies and utilities the world over are beginning to get new options for low cost batteries used for the power grid. This week New Jersey-based startup Eos Energy Storage announced that it will soon ramp up manufacturing of its inexpensive zinc-air batteries in conjunction with manufacturing company Incodema Group.  Eos Energy has been planning to start delivering its first batteries to market in 2014, and its first pilot project will be with utility Con Edison in New York. The batteries are meant to be used on for the power grid to help customers add in solar and wind energy and produce other services like frequency regulation.

      Low-cost (Zn-NiO) energy storage for the smart grid (demo in New York)

      Urban Electric Power's zinc anode battery technology is the first of these to transfer from the lab to market. UEP's new GreenCat zinc-nickel oxide (Zn-NiO) rechargeable battery systems are able to meet these ambitious cost targets because they are capable of achieving many more cycles than previous generations of zinc anode batteries.

    7. 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.
