    1. Report: High Temperature Energy Storage: NaS, NaMx and Molten Salt

      Report: High Temperature Energy Storage: NaS, NaMx and Molten Salt
      According to a new report by market research publisher SBI Energy, energy storage is a growing market critical to the advancement and optimization of smart grid transmission and distribution operations and to the integration of renewable energies in power generation. High temperature energy storage (HTS) technologies, including sodium-sulfur (NaS), sodium-metal halide NaMx, and molten salt thermal energy storage (TES), are gaining attention as the go-to technologies for large scale and utility scale energy storage.

    2. S&C Electric to Furnish a Turnkey NaS Storage System

      S&C Electric to Furnish a Turnkey NaS Storage System
      Southern California Edison (SCE) awarded S&C Electric a contract to furnish a turnkey 1-MW S&C Smart Grid SMS™ Storage Management System on Catalina Island, California. With no tie to the mainland, Catalina's diesel generators are not best equipped to handle power demand, which fluctuates throughout the day. By deploying stored energy during times of peak power demand, the Smart Grid SMS with NaS batteries permits Catalina Island generators to run at a specific percentage of capacity for optimal performance and decreased carbon emissions.

    3. Tohoku Electric To Stack 40 NGK 2MW NaS Batteries

      Tohoku Electric To Stack 40 NGK 2MW NaS Batteries
      Tohoku Electric Power Co. will set up a sodium sulfur (NaS) storage system at its Noshiro fossil-fuel-burning power plant. The system is comprised of forty 2MW NaS batteries from NGK, and has a total output capacity of 80MW. It is expected to be running in January, and when fully charged, it will provide continuous power for roughly six hours. It is expected to be one of the biggest of its kind in Japan.

      BC Hydro, NGK, S&C Electric team on project
      The project involves two 1MW batteries. The battery near Golden will supplement the community’s power supply during peak periods. The battery in Field will store up to seven hours of reliable back up supply that could be used during an outage. The batteries will be supplied by NGK Insulators, and the system will be engineered and installed by S&C Electric Company.

    5. Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?

      Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?
      “We believe we can sell at under $300 a kilowatt-hour profitably once we are in mass manufacturing,” said Jay Whitacre, CTO of Aquion Energy … General Electric will open a 1MWh sodium metal battery plant in the U.S. next year. The batteries will get deployed for grid storage and powering locomotives next year ... Japan’s NGK has installed approximately 250 GW of sodium sulfur batteries for grid storage in Japan. Thirteen GW have been installed in the U.S.

    6. PG&E Grid-Scale Storage Demo Projects

      PG&E Grid-Scale Storage Demo Projects
      PG&E does have another pumped hydro site in development, Mokelumne, that's potentially the same size as Helms and has the potential to be used to help buffer the 4,500 megawatts of wind power coming in from the Tehachapi wind developments. So, PG&E understands pumped hydro. Electrochemical storage might be a different story. PG&E has two pilot projects using sodium sulfur (NaS) batteries from NGK. NGK's NaS batteries were selected because they are one of the few technologies and vendors with a performance and reliability track record. According to Thalman, the pilot can help the ISO develop the storage markets with this testbed.
