  • 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 ...

  • Energy Storage 301: Solar + Storage Economics - Case Study

    In this post we examine the economics of solar + storage. Specifically, we calculate the value of solar and storage for two commercial buildings in each of three markets: California, New York, and Hawaii. We find solar and storage are strongly synergistic in all three markets. The NPVs of solar + storage investments are greater than the sum of the NPVs of solar investments and storage investments ...

  • Energy Technology Perspectives 2015

    As climate negotiators work towards a deal that would limit the increase in global temperatures, interest is growing in the essential role technology innovation can and must play in enabling the transition to a low-carbon energy system. Indeed, recent success stories clearly indicate that there is significant and untapped potential for accelerating innovation in clean technologies if proper ...

  • Thermodynamic analyses of closed thermochemical energy storages

    Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is an important technology for achieving more efficient and environmentally acceptable energy systems. Where space is limited, thermochemical TES has the highest potential to achieve compact thermal energy storage. Here, a general closed thermochemical TES is investigated using energy and exergy analyses. An illustrative example is presented, and the energy and exergy ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies and economic investment opportunities in the UK

    This article reviews the role played by carbon and capture (CCS) technologies in order to facilitate the transition to low-carbon emitting technologies in the medium-term. More precisely, we address the following central questions: how will the development of CCS technologies impact energy policies in order to yield to sustainable energy solutions? At what costs will pollution reductions be ...

  • 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 ...

  • US energy-dense storage system set to raise tower efficiency

    Southern Research plans to commission by October 2017 a 1 MWh(th) energy storage demonstration unit using its high temperature thermochemical technology, following a recent funding boost from the US Department of Energy. The Alabama-based developer was one of 14 research groups which were awarded in September a combined $32 million from the US ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sustainable development as a guide to the energy technology revolution

    Mitigating climate change while also meeting world needs for increased access to energy will require an energy revolution. More rapid deployment of existing renewable energy technologies will help, but new energy generation, transmission, and storage technologies will also be needed. The article urges the application of sustainable development principles to guide this revolution. From three ...

  • 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: ...

  • Environmental impacts of integrating wind energy systems and supplemental energy generation and storage systems

    Wind energy systems offer a promising alternative energy source due to the environmental, economic, and social benefits and, as a result, have garnered support for development and implementation. One of the major drawbacks of wind energy, however, is its variability due to the stochastic nature of wind, thus, supplemental energy generation or storage technologies are required. In this study, a ...

  • Development of the technology for localisation and isolation from biosphere of outdoor liquid radwaste storage basins

    The approaches were proposed for localisation and isolation of outdoor liquid radwaste storage basins from the biosphere. The lab research findings showed immobilisation of radioactive sludges into a compound and drying-up of liquid phase using porous vitrocrystalline forms (VCF) using as example actual solid and liquid phases from the MCC's storage basins. The effectiveness of the radionuclide ...
