  • Regional electricity price differences due to intermittent wind power in Germany: impact of extended transmission and storage capacities

    A fast growth of installed wind power capacity has been experienced in several European countries. In Germany, notably high wind power capacities are planned in the North. If the existing transmission capacities between individual regions become insufficient, the electricity prices will differ considerably and the system operation can become unstable. It is supposed that the extension of ...

  • Air systems at a food storage warehouse

    This is a treatment of air systems at a warehouse that stores and redistributes food for 7-Eleven. The customer observed a reduction in electricity bills. However, what was more impressive and valuable for the customer is that the space cooled faster because the air was colder (but not ice cold!). This colder air meant the warehouse could process more food in a day. That resulted in increased ...

  • We don’t want energy storage

    Claiming that we don’t want energy storage seems like a provocative thing to say. For example, the Energy Institute (EI)’s 2015 Energy Barometer report, a survey of professionals in the energy industry, rated storage as the area most in need of innovation. My point isn’t that energy storage isn’t ...

  • Proton Power 25m3 DIY Syngas Storage

    Based in Tennessee USA Proton Power Inc. (PPI) was founded by 2 remarkable entrepreneurs with previous successes in such diverse areas as aircraft brakes and neutron absorbers (don’t ask!). With this kind of history we knew their requirement was going to be beyond our usual scope. We weren’t wrong - they requested a 25m3 Base gas holder in which to store a syngas mixture with high ...

  • Hydrogen Storage - Solution for an Intermittent Energy Source

    Storing solar energy through hydrogen versus traditional storage solutions Today, energy is either transmitted directly to the consumer through the grid or stored as backup power for future use via batteries, pumping water, etc. When it comes to solar and wind energy, it becomes extraordinarily difficult to take full advantage of the renewable sources using traditional methods of power ...

  • Hydrogen storage systems for automotive applications: project StorHy

    Around two thirds of world's oil usage is associated with transportation with road vehicles consuming around 40%. Also, transportation accounts for around 25% of greenhouse emissions worldwide, with around 90% coming from road vehicles. This situation is further complicated by the fact that oil reserves are running out. For this reason, the automotive industry supported by relevant governing ...

  • Battery Storage will have a Profound Impact on Smart Buildings

    Often the best ideas are the most simple and elegant. If electric vehicles and consumer devices can have battery storage why can’t buildings? And if buildings can pull electricity from the grid at off peak times and store it in batteries, wouldn’t that save money? Since 2009, Stem based in California, have been working on these questions and disrupting the energy storage industry. ...

  • Sun at Night: Sunny Boy Storage in the Field

    Heinrich Eurich reports on his initial experiences with his PV storage system comprising the Sunny Boy Storage and Tesla Powerwall. As part of the field test for the Sunny Boy Storage, the SMA employee was one of the first to have the new storage system installed. “Darn it, back payments again!” That’s how I always reacted when the annual electricity bill from the public utility ...

  • 7 Theses on Storage Systems in Commercial Applications

    Solar storage systems are now the focus of attention more than ever before. The application areas are as different as the requirements. While private PV system operators work toward optimizing self-consumption, storage systems in industry are mainly used to provide control reserve and thus ensure grid stability. In commercial storage ...

  • Integration of pump storage hydro with wind energy

    Renewable energy has significant advantages as it does not contribute to Greenhouse Gases (GHG). Wind energy is a renewable energy alternative that is being installed worldwide. However, wind energy is unpredictable and thus, unavailable as compared to conventional generation. The availability of wind energy compared to conventional power plants is a cause of contention. Currently, the rate of ...
