PV with batteries: a threat to CSP?

Looking to 10 years from now, if energy storage achieves its full potential then the whole landscape for power generation and distribution could change drastically.

Safer Fuel Cell Powered Automobiles

While an electric vehicle may go 200 or 250 miles without a charge a combination of fuel cell and fuel together with a balance of system could travel 500 or even 800 miles depending upon the specific requirements and design.

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

The quest for "The Holy Grail of Energy Storage" is doomed to fail.

Grid-connected Flywheel Energy Storage Facility

Temporal Power flywheels are used for short term energy balancing on the power grid.

Tesla's Battery Fire Patents Can Accelerate Safety of Electric Cars

A little understood but perhaps far more important consideration for consumer safety could be related to the risk of battery fires to drivers.

How battery technology can contribute to realize sustainability of electricity storage?

We can avoid hazardous materials by using the sodium-ion battery and I believe that the higher performance stationary sodium-ion batteries will provide abundant energy without relying on expensive and hazardous chemicals

The Smart Grid And Multifamily Dwelling Challenges

We need to apply good systems engineering principles to policy creation to address the benefits gaps that confront multifamily stakeholders today.

Trees go high-tech: process turns cellulose into energy storage devices

The new approach just discovered at Oregon State can produce nitrogen-doped, nanoporous carbon membranes - the electrodes of a supercapacitor - at low cost, quickly, in an environmentally benign process.

Finding Solutions For Battery Sulfation Issues In Renewable Energy Applications

While the recent news about carbon has been touted as something that can drastically improve the overall performance of the flooded lead acid battery, the facts should be completely understood before buying these types of batteries with any carbon additives, especially if they are sold as a value added feature.

The Integrated Grid

Excerpts from the EPRI Study on the Integrated Electric Grid

GreenStation Energy Storage Powered by Smart Grid Technology

The bottom line is that energy (kWh) is no longer the cost driver for commercial and industrial electric ratepayers; power (kW) is where the pain lies.

Grid Parity: A Foggy Signal for Solar Maturity

What we can expect to see is a gradual transition of solar from an alternative energy to a truly cost competitive source of energy that helps counteract rising electricity rates and fuel costs.

States Keeping U.S. at Fuel Cell Forefront

The report identifies the "Top 5 Fuel Cell States" - California, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina.

NY Working Hard to Catch Up with CA's Energy Storage Requirements

Next up at the plate as a hot, receptive market for energy storage in North America is New York.
