    2. Overview: Storage market post FERC frequency regulation ruling

      Overview: Storage market post FERC frequency regulation ruling
      The FERC ruling will benefit companies using technologies that regulate and store energy. And as these technologies are developed and refined, they will also benefit the renewable energy industry, allowing nationwide energy providers, municipal organizations and even individuals to make better use of clean energy sources.

    3. Interview: Strategic Significance of Storage

      Energy storage, in theory at least, is a technology with enormous potential to change the way energy is transported, dispatched and consumed. Because the energy sector is dynamic and technologies evolve every bit as fast, I spoke about energy storage with Edwin F. Feo, the managing partner of USRG Renewable Finance, one of the country’s largest private equity firms for renewable energy, biofuels and cleantech infrastructure.

      Beacon Power in Pilot Project with NorthWestern Energy

      Once the system is operational later this year, Beacon and NorthWestern Energy will work closely together to develop the flywheel system's control signal algorithms to determine how best to optimize performance of the adjacent DGGS, and to evaluate and quantify the impact and potential benefits of the flywheel resource. The companies will also seek to determine the optimum amount of flywheel regulation capacity for the site should NorthWestern elect to expand the flywheel capacity.

    6. Editorial: Flywheel Safety

      Editorial: Flywheel Safety
      If a flywheel were to fail, the energy escapes to do damage. A manufacturer could reduce risk by operating the flywheel at several times below its failure speed, but this will also substantially reduce its energy density. Flywheels are tested to determine their maximum spin potential. As the operating speed comes closer to the failure speed, risk reduction shifts to containment systems.
