      Standardization Harmonization – Tackling Challenges in Energy Storage

      Energy storage is the key technology for unleashing the full potential of microgrids, the smart grid, and renewable energy sources. The energy storage systems industry has a market poised for substantial growth and multi-billion dollar annual sales worldwide within a few years, but that assumption is based on removing some current barriers. The 2013 DOE/EPRI Energy Storage Handbook lays out the three biggest hurdles to broader adoption of energy storage technologies -- including high cost, difficulty in deployment, and lack of standards.

      V2G Enabled PEV's to Expand Steadily to 2020

      Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies have been in development since the beginning of the modern electric vehicle era, but are only now beginning to emerge in revenue-generating applications, according to Navigant Research. Though negligible today, the market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) equipped with vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies -- which enable the vehicles to participate in ancillary services for the power grid -- is predicted by Navigant to expand steadily in the coming years.
