DOE Invests Half a Billion to De-risk Cheaper Energy Storage

Dive Brief: To help commercialize emerging energy storage that can power the grid for at least 10 hours, the Department of Energy has launched a $505 million four-year initiative. It aims to lower barriers to grid energy storage, and support small-scale, behind-the-meter pilots as well as large utility-scale demonstrations. DOE’s [...]

ATA Webinar: Capitalize on the Coming US Grid Storage Boom

Gearing up your company to capitalize on the utility-scale energy storage boom in the US A decarbonizing grid relying on variable renewable – solar PV and wind – for the lion’s share of the energy it integrates, will over time require energy services and increasingly rely on energy storage [...]

Will the US Demo Long-duration Energy Storage in Time?

In a new study from Sandia National Laboratories; The Value of Long-Duration Energy Storage: Policy and Perception, researchers have published details regarding policies pertaining to long-duration energy storage (LDES), including feedback from  around 500 stakeholders. Respondents included representatives from utilities, governments, industry, academia, non-profits, and national labs. While for now, [...]

NREL Results Support Cheap Long Duration Energy Storage in Hot Sand

There aren’t many novel clean energy technologies that could also directly remove fossil energy plants. The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has created one. Long duration storage at grid scale is crucial to meeting climate targets. Solar PV and wind have the momentum to be a big part of [...]

Solar energy stored in sulphur

A new approach to sector coupling: German Aerospace Center (DLR) conducts research on a new kind of concentrated solar power plan. In the PEGASUS research project, the German Aerospace Center’s Institute of Solar Research in Jülich is studying a completely new kind of solar thermal power plant which stores solar [...]

Aalborg CSP secures new contract with the PTES low-cost energy storage technology

The Pit Thermal Energy Storage (PTES) market is in rapid growth and Aalborg CSP has now secured its second contract in less than 10 months. The PTES solution using Aalborg CSP’s low-cost energy storage technology is to be installed at Dronninglund Fjernvarme (Dronninglund District Heating), Denmark. The contract is an [...]

Beam-Down Demos First Direct Solar Storage at 1/2 MWh Scale

Normally, power tower CSP heats molten salts by aiming concentrated sunlight up to a receiver on a tower that has molten salts flowing through pipes in the receiver to be heated and sent down the tower to store the sun’s energy as heat in a hot tank below. Beam Down [...]

100-Gigawatt-Hour Crushed-Rock Heat Storage for Concentrated Solar Power and Nuclear

A very large-scale long duration energy storage (LDES) idea from MIT envisages a 1 kilometer-long, 60 meter-wide lidded central storage container of rocks sunk 20 meters down into the ground – about the size of 10 football fields if they were laid end to end. The idea is that it [...]

Australia-US thermal storage technology progresses to demonstration phase

Next-generation solar thermal energy storage technology developed in partnership with the Australian Solar Thermal Research Initiative (ASTRI) has reached a major milestone, with the United States Department of Energy announcing it will fund commercial-scale testing. The technology, which has been produced with input from CSIRO, the Australian National University and [...]

Long Duration Energy Storage gets New R&D Lab in Biden’s DOE

A US$75 million national research and development (R&D) facility for energy storage is expected to be up and running by 2025, the US Department of Energy (DOE) said yesterday. Called the Grid Storage Launchpad (GSL), 30 separate research laboratories will be hosted at the site including technology prototype testing chambers [...]

Aalborg CSP receives order for lid solution for Integrated Pit Thermal Energy Storage (PTES) System

The Danish renewable and energy storage specialist, Aalborg CSP has received an order for the world’s most advanced lid solution to be installed as part of an Integrated Energy System with Pit Thermal Energy Storage (PTES) project in Denmark. The order was received from Høje Taastrup Fjernvarme and VEKS, who [...]

Nov 5 Webinar: Abengoa on Retrofitting CSP Plants for Intermittent Renewable Energy Storage

Spain’s Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (PINEC) targets 74% of power from renewable sources by 2030, with more than 25GW of PV capacity expected to be added by that year. Hybrid PV – CSP bring together these complementary technologies to deliver solar power when it is required (dispatchable) or [...]

Concentrated solar power plants to produce electricity at night thanks to storage technology

Thermal energy storage (TES) systems can boost the conversion of solar thermal into electricity. They allow the efficient storage of heat during the day so that electricity production continues at night. Currently, the expansion of small and midsized concentrated solar power plants is limited because of the shortage of [...]
