Energy Storage
September 30, 2016 - “Energy storage-enabled applications are poised to disrupt energy markets”, finds a recent white paper from Navigant Research, which examined five major trends and the related market forces expected to shape the global energy storage industry in 2016 and beyond.
September 20, 2016 - A number of energy projects have received support from Canada’s Ministry of Innovation, Science and Economic Development’s investment of over $39.6 million. $5.5 million in new funding for three previously funded Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) projects was also announced recently from the ministry.
September 14, 2016 - “We’re building the blueprint for Canada’s future ‘gas stations for electric vehicles’, as well as providing efficient, clean power solutions for remote communities,” said BCIT president Kathy Kinloch at the official opening of British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Energy OASIS project.
September 1, 2016 - University of Alberta mechanical engineering professors Pierre Mertiny and Marc Secanell recently calculated that the use of flywheel technology to assist light rail transit in Edmonton, Alta., would produce energy savings of 31% and cost savings of 11%.
August 29, 2016 - One solution for storing solar energy for periods when the sun doesn’t shine is to convert it into hydrogen through water electrolysis. The idea is to use the electrical current produced by a solar panel to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. But it’s not as easy as it sounds.
July 20, 2016 - In the wake of Alberta’s plan to transition to more renewable energy sources, a consortium of private sector energy companies have joined forces to launch the Alberta Storage Alliance (ASA) to advance energy storage technologies. Members include: BYD, Enercon, ENMAX, General Electric, NRStor, Opus One Solutions, RES, Rocky Mountain Power, S&C Electric, Temporal Power and UniEnergy Technologies.
July 11, 2016 - Utility companies or others planning to install renewable energy systems (e.g. solar and wind farms) have to decide whether to include large-scale energy storage systems that can capture power when it’s available then release it on demand. In fact, it is often said large-scale renewables generation will only work with right-sized energy storage.
July 4, 2016 - Nissan and Eaton have joined forces to unveil a residential energy storage, the xStorage solution, which the companies say will give consumers the power to control how and when they use energy in their own homes.
May 31, 2016 - Eaton has new models—200-600kW/kVA—launching in North America for its Power Xpert 9395 high performance uninterruptible power system (UPS).
April 25, 2016 - Northern Power Systems Corp.’s new ESS (energy storage solution)—which features the FP2000 FlexPhase power conversion system—promises to enable developers and end users to acquire a fully integrated energy storage system “tailored to their needs”.
April 25, 2016 - A new interactive spreadsheet from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) aims to help utility buyers and sellers of energy storage systems “understand and clearly define the total cost of ownership of these technologies”.
February 9, 2016 - Sunverge Energy has announced the next generation of its Solar Integration System (SIS), offering customers what it says is “a cost-effective package of more battery options and a streamlined design with even more system intelligence than the original SIS”.
January 21, 2016 - A lithium-ion battery that self-heats when the temperature is below 32F has multiple applications, says a team of researchers from Penn State and EC Power, State College, but may have the most impact on relieving winter range anxiety for electric vehicle owners.
December 21, 2015 - Energy storage system owners could see significant savings from a new flow battery technology, says Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, which is projected to cost 60% less than today’s standard flow batteries.
December 7, 2015 - Schneider Electric has unveiled a scalable energy storage system for domestic, IT, industrial or commercial environments, and for the grid, called EcoBlade.
