The ability to efficiently store energy is the key to unlocking Australia’s latent solar energy assets. Maybe it’s time to look at liquid air technology.
US energy secretary Stephen Chu says big solar will be cheaper than coal and gas before most people realise. He says the combination of solar and battery technologies, pushed forward by electric vehicles, will turn the energy industry upside down – unless, of course, if politicians fail to seize the moment.
A UCLA-led breakthrough in micro supercapicitator development could be the first step to a revolution in the marriage of renewables and energy capture.
A new suite of rooftop solar and storage products can not only power your home during a blackout, but can do so at off-peak rates.
Southern Cross Renewable Energy Fund contributes $4.5m towards local hydrogen storage technology that will enable a new renewable energy storage solution.
Zinc Air – whose zinc-iron redox flow batteries are 6 months off commercial deployment – is a grid storage company worth watching.
Tiny rechargeable batteries developed at University of Illinois could be used to power a phone and jump-start a dead car battery.
Belgium is planning to construct an island in the North Sea for the sole purpose storing wind energy.
Stanford has developed a novel way to calculate how much energy is required to build batteries and other large-scale energy storage technologies.
We asked some of Australia’s top energy industry executives and experts for their tips and predictions on what 2013 will hold. Here’s what they had too say…
Energy storage systems may be a bigger game-changer for the electricity market than solar PV. An affordable system developed by an Australian company means households will be able to produce their own ‘baseload’ renewable energy supply.
Big things are happening in both the cost and innovation of energy storage and energy management. The solar revolution has only just begun.
