      GE Looking at Reservoir Pumps for Renewable Energy Storage

      Scientists from General Electric's Global Research Center in Niskayuna recently won a $1.25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to study the viability of so-called pumped storage hydropower technology that essentially stores up power generated from solar and wind farms for use on the electric grid. The grant, which was awarded by the DOE's Water Power Technologies Office, will be shared by GE Research, GE Energy Consulting and GE Renewable Energy's hydro team.

      GE Durathon battery plant nearly complete
      The battery is made of cells each the size of a toothpaste box, assembled into suitcase-sized modules. About 20 of these modules would be used for a data center; about 200 for a utility grid. GE expects much of its battery business to come from emerging markets, such as Southeast Asia and India, which have weak or no power grids and extreme climates.
