      Why Storage Matters

      One company making strides in the storage of energy is California-based Imergy Power Systems. Imergy Power specializes in a proprietary, vanadium based flow battery system, which is the most cost-effective energy storage technology available today. The flow batteries store energy in a liquid electrolyte that circulates between tanks, allowing for a simple design that creates a robust and efficient system that can be cycled thousands of times in a year, and charged and discharged completely without impact on its lifespan. This also allows for customizable sizing for the batteries, allowing each storage project to be tailored to its specific needs. Its latest project is the long-term storage battery called the ESP 30, which can store up to 200 kWh of energy.

      DNV KEMA launches energy storage valuation service (using its new analytics tools)

      "The service tells utilities ... if, when, where, how large, and how to reach a payback point on energy storage investment. The simulation capabilities allow a utility to quickly run hundreds of scenarios in order to determine the optimum approach," said KEMA. The service is possible due to innovative analytics tools including ES-GRID , which debuted in 2013 as a purpose-built modeling tool used by the CPUC as input in its effort to establish reliable and detailed economics for energy storage. Other tools include ES-Select, KERMIT, and Microgrid Optimizer .

      Sustainable Energy to supply energy storage inverters for military and remote locations

      "...a significant portion of North American market for distributed energy storage ... will come for remote industrial (telecommunications, oil and gas, mining) and military applications.  Inverter-controlled, battery centric micro-grids, using alternative energy sources, are often able to deliver more resilient power at a lower cost than (traditional) diesel generators..." Sustainable's CTO said.

    5. American Vanadium Breaks into Energy Storage, Boosts Renewables

      American Vanadium Breaks into Energy Storage, Boosts Renewables

      The company is in talks with battery leaders involved in lithium-vanadium-flow batteries (VFBs) development under the proposition that American Vanadium will provide long term stability in the price of the metal for a piece of the battery business. Since vanadium is such a massive component of a VFB, solving the issue of vanadium's volatile price and limited supply is key for any battery developer breaking into the multi-billion dollar industry.
