      Report by KEMA: Energy Storage Market Quadruples in Five Years

      A new report from KEMA looked at the growth in U.S. energy storage in the coming five years. It concluded the domestic market is likely to quadruple and to offer significant opportunities in electrochemical, mechanical and thermal methods of storing energy over a wide range of applications ... The storage industry is going to rely on subsidies to jump-start its early growth.

      Rubenius in Mexico and Arab Emirates revisited (comments below article are very useful)
      An energy storage expert said that Rubenius had done little research on the California market before making announcements, that the project was on the wrong place on the grid, and the firm had little coordination with NGK. And Greentech Media has just learned of layoffs at the firm. A source close to the company said that the firm was "letting go of people left and right."

      Keeping Beacon's flywheels spinning at Stephentown, NY

      The plant was running at full capacity by July, and presumably continues to store power … That gives the government an incentive to keep the [plant] running. The Beacon subsidiary created to receive the $43M guarantee and run the Stephentown plant has largely pledged its assets, revenues and cash as collateral on the loan.

      International Battery’s Utility-Scale Li-Ion Goes After Solar
      "What makes us different is that we develop and manufacture large-format prismatic lithium-ion cells using a water-based manufacturing process. We work with lithium-iron phosphate and lithium cobalt manganese, but we are chemistry agnostic -- we are not an inventor of lithium chemistries." said [former] CEO Almgren.

    6. AES Prefers Li-ion, Lead Acid and Flow Batteries for 400MW system bid

      AES Prefers Li-ion, Lead Acid and Flow Batteries for 400MW system bid

      AES is bidding on a 400MW battery storage system for a Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) request for new power. This project [is] an alternative to new generation on Long Island. It's a 1,600-megawatt-hour system providing operating reserve services."When we started in this business, it was unheard of to use lithium-ion," said John Zahurancik, the VP, Deployment and Operations, at AES Energy Storage. But that technology has become the go-to material. "Lithium-ion is understood and packaged," according to Zahurancik, "but we track over 100 technology companies at various levels of activity -- with a handful that we think are in the top tier." These include flow batteries, lithium-ion, and advanced lead acid batteries.

      Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader
      In the Smart City initiative, storage will come in the form of lithium-ion batteries. There are four small-scale trials overall, including ammonia to hydrogen/nitrogen, graphite, zinc bromine and ultrabatteries. Some of the most dynamic homegrown startups (Wizard Power, ZBB Energy, RedFlow, Ecoult) are also located at the intersection of renewables and storage.

    8. Bright Energy's Underwater CAES 'Bag'

      Bright Energy's Underwater CAES 'Bag'
      Bright Energy's core technology is a long, flexible polymer/glass bag shaped like a giant sea cucumber. One end of the bag is attached to an air hose on the surface. A self-standing system with its own generator could produce power for under 6 cents a kilowatt hour, the CTO said. If you could latch onto a generator at an offshore wind farm, the costs could potentially drop to 2.5 cents.
