Energy storage system offers 85kWh rated capacity

Energy storage system offers 85kWh rated capacity
With the new lithium ion energy storage option – the BMZ Energy Storage Systems (ESS) – both private and commercial solar system operators have the ability to inexpensively store solar energy during the day, then use it in their own homes or businesses as needed. The new storage system, designated ESS 9.0, has a rated capacity of 85kWh and a lower specific price than its little brother, the ESS 7.0.

2D polymer could revolutionise energy storage

2D polymer could revolutionise energy storage
A research team from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has successfully pushed the frontier of polymer technology further by creating novel 2D graphene-like polymer sheets. "In the last century, scientists have successfully developed molecules which can be crosslinked to form one-dimensional and three-dimensional polymers. These are used to produce a wide range of technological products.

Inexpensive storage systems could enable boom in renewables

Inexpensive storage systems could enable boom in renewables
One of the key technologies needed to transform world energy supplies away from fossil fuels and toward clean, renewable sources is a cheap and reliable way of storing and releasing energy. That will enable intermittent supplies such as solar and wind power, with their variable and often unpredictable outputs, to store energy that’s produced when it’s not needed and to release it when it’s needed most (or can be sold for the best price).

Fraunhofer completes offshore pumped storage concept test

Fraunhofer completes offshore pumped storage concept test
The Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology said it has completed a four-week test of its Stored Energy in the Sea (StEnSEA) concept. Fraunhofer said it recovered its three-meter diameter hollow sphere from the bottom of Lake Constance on the Swiss-German border, where it had been operating at a depth of about 100 meters. The technology uses water pressure to drive electromechanical pump components within a central tube of the storage unit.

Renewable energy could power the Nordic countries

Renewable energy could power the Nordic countries
The Nordic countries could manage their energy supply through renewable energy alone but it would require the right mix of energy sources and an adaptation of both energy storage and distribution. This is the conclusion of a new study from Uppsala University, published in the journal Nature Energy. “Many are sceptic to entirely or partly removing nuclear power and fossil fuels, since there can be large fluctuations in how much electricity can be produced with renewable energy.

Fine-tuning metal-oxide catalysts enhances energy storage

Fine-tuning metal-oxide catalysts enhances energy storage
Chemical reactions that release oxygen in the presence of a catalyst, known as oxygen-evolution reactions, are a crucial part of chemical energy storage processes, including water splitting, electrochemical carbon dioxide reduction, and ammonia production. The kinetics of this type of reaction are generally slow, but compounds called metal oxides can have catalytic activities that vary over several orders of magnitude, with some exhibiting the highest such rates reported to date.

New South Wales government launches storage challenge

New South Wales government launches storage challenge
The government of New South Wales, Australia, issued a call for energy storage proposals to help wind and solar generators deliver energy to the grid constantly. The call for proposals is part of the government’s Advanced Energy Challenge. Minister for Industry, Resources and Energy Anthony Roberts said that the initiative will stimulate new energy-related ideas and turn them into effective technologies and business models.

Leading the way to a low-carbon future

Leading the way to a low-carbon future
Playing a major role in the transition towards a low-carbon economy, a trial of the largest grid-scale battery in Britain has proven it can potentially transform the energy grid. The ‘big battery’, designed and run by UK Power Networks and based in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, stores energy when demand is low and releases it at peak times.

Energy-efficient storage systems for industrial warehouses

Energy-efficient storage systems for industrial warehouses
A demand for energy-efficient solutions in every industry is becoming an issue, due to rising electricity costs, with logistics and distribution being no exception. KASTO has developed an energy recovery and storage system for its German-built industrial warehouses, used globally for automated storage and retrieval of bar, tube, sheet, plate and other materials.

Microscale energy storage units support wearable devices

Microscale energy storage units support wearable devices
Energy storage units that can be integrated into wearable and flexible electronic systems are becoming increasingly important in today's world. A research team from KAUST has now developed a microsupercapacitor that exploits three-dimensional porous electrodes. These micropower units are expected to enable a new generation of "smart"products, such as self-powered sensors for wearables, security, structural health monitoring and "internet of things" applications.
