  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Minding the gap in the energy industry

    The energy industry is currently facing a large skills gap, caused in particular by an ageing workforce and limited investment in training and development. Energy Institute members have highlighted the supply of skilled workers as one of the biggest issues facing the UK energy industry this year. The skilled worker shortage is one of many challenges and opportunities that have been ...

  • Beyond the Tesla Powerwall: How energy storage is shaping up in Ontario - How energy storage changes everything

    There are not many entrepreneurs who can command a room like Elon Musk. When he stepped onto a stage in May to unveil the Powerwall the audience oohed and ahhed and dutifully pre-ordered more than 38,000 of Tesla’s new home battery systems. And while Tesla gets the headlines other energy storage ...

  • CSP Thermal Energy Storage vital for utilities and grid operators

    The modern age of CSP can arguably be traced back to the 354MW Solar Energy Generating Systems (SEGS) in the Mojave desert, which now make up the oldest operating plant in the world, as well as one of the largest. However, recent developments in the industry will see SEGS eclipsed by 5 projects that are scheduled to come online in 2013-14, with a combined total of 1312MW. The five plants in ...

  • Twelve principles for introducing sustainable energy storage to the electrical grid

    Researchers have provided a set of guidelines to help policymakers, designers and operators develop sustainable solutions for energy-storage systems for electricity grids. The guidelines cover a range of energy-storage technologies and grid-integration options. As societies move towards decarbonising the world’s energy supply and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, energy storage is ...

  • Hazardous chemicals and proper storage solutions

    Many acceptable categorical storage schemes have been proposed and used by laboratories in academic, industrial, government and medical institutions. The common features uniting all these plans is the separation of incompatible materials. The differences in these various storage schemes arises in the number of groups that should be established for segregation purposes. The ten most commonly cited ...

  • Automotive Manufacturers Conquer the Storage Market

    At least since the end of April, when Tesla introduced its Powerwall, everyone seems to be talking about the market for stationary battery-storage systems. At any rate, it was the dominant topic at Intersolar. I asked Volker Wachenfeld, an SMA expert in storage technology, about his assessment of the market and SMA’s plans for battery-storage systems going forward. - See more at: ...

  • CSP could be the best energy solution for the mining industry

    Chile could be the make or break of the concentrated solar power industry in finding a way to work closely with the mining industry. Many mining companies in the Great North would greatly benefit from being able to take advantage of an abundant and free solar resource that could eliminate reliance on expensive energy imports. As part of the inaugural CSP Today LATAM conference, CSP Today has ...

  • 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. ...

  • The trouble with angels: carbon capture and storage hurdles and solutions

    This article examines the challenges to commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage using geologic sequestration. The authors argue that CCS will never become a reality without early federal investment in research and development, a uniform federal regulatory framework, and a framework to address the currently unknown and unquantifiable liabilities. They suggest a model similar to the ...

  • National implementation of carbon capture and storage: The case of Germany

    As Germany is – and will remain for the immediate future – dependent on coal for generating power and ensuring energy supply, the German Government and various representatives from the private sector are currently assessing and promoting so called “Clean Coal” technologies, such as Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Scientific research and industrial pilot projects for capturing and storing carbon ...

  • Numerical simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer in a phase change thermal energy storage

    The objective of this work is the study of an industrial process of energy storage which consists in the use of a cylindrical tank filled with encapsulated Phase Change Materials (PCM). A particularity is present in this kind of processes; it concerns the delay of the crystallisation of PCM, called supercooling phenomenon. The development of a 2D porous-medium model for cold storage with coolant ...

  • 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 ...
