      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/ .

    5. Los Angeles subway awards $3.6M to VYCON for flywheel-based storage

      Los Angeles subway awards $3.6M to VYCON for flywheel-based storage

      VYCON's clean energy high-speed flywheel technology will recycle part of the energy in the system by absorbing and storing in kinetic form energy regenerated by braking trains in the line and returning this stored energy to trains in acceleration in a clean, instantaneous form. This recycling of energy will save electricity otherwise wasted in the form of heat.
