Energy storage has been dubbed the "holy grail" of grid operators, that notion thrived better when it applied to a vague ideal rather than cold reality. Today, with long- and short- duration energy storage alternatives to pumped hydro moving from lab to market, the quest has become vastly more complicated and the goal more elusive. [...]

Wind Drives Growing Use of Batteries

2010-07-28T07:59:39+00:00

Increased wind energy development is resulting in new efforts to  develop better storage of electrical energy.  Delivery of electricity from wind energy generation is sometimes difficult to schedule; reliable storage can smooth out how wind energy integrates with electric utility grids.  Some companies even see opportunities to profit through arbitrage, by buying electricity from wind [...]
