      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/ .

      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.

      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.

      Firm, utility cooperate on (Zinc Air) battery test

      Flathead Electric Cooperative’s Kalispell campus will be the first test site for the Zinc Air Inc. battery storage technology, it was announced Friday.  Zinc Air has been working on the production of a battery for storing and generating power at its Columbia Falls plant since 2009. This will be the company’s first test run of its technology in the field.
