SMA Equipment Selected for Storage Test at NREL’s National Wind Technology Center

Renewable Energy Systems (RES) will utilize SMA technology for a 1 MW battery pilot project at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) National Wind Technology Center (NWTC), the nation’s premier wind energy technology research facility.

Using the proven RESolve® energy storage system, the project will test various components of energy storage and educate the public on how energy storage can create a more stable, secure U.S. electric grid and accommodate increasing amounts of clean, renewable energy.

“We truly value the opportunity to work with RES on this project,” said Volker Wachenfeld, executive vice president of SMA’s Storage [...]

Trailblazing storage project leads the way to low-carbon future

A trial of the largest grid-scale battery in Britain has proved it can potentially transform the energy grid and play a major role in the transition towards a low-carbon economy.

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.

The Smarter Network Storage (SNS) facility is the first grid-scale battery storage project in the UK and the only one of its kind currently operating on the energy network. It has proved for the first time that energy storage has the potential to be both technically and commercially viable.

More than 250 leading lights of [...]

Safe new storage method could be key to future of hydrogen-powered vehicles

Hydrogen is often described as the fuel of the future, particularly when applied to hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles. One of the main obstacles facing this technology — a potential solution to future sustainable transport — has been the lack of a lightweight, safe on-board hydrogen storage material. A major new discovery has shown that hydrocarbon wax rapidly releases large amounts of hydrogen when activated with catalysts and microwaves.
