Some Skepticism on Solar Thermal Power’s Storage Potential

January 24th, 2012 | by John Farrell

Earlier this month, New York Times reporter Matt Wald had a piece on the role of energy storage in supporting the expansion of renewable energy. However, his specific focus on solar thermal power generation overlooks the potentially high costs of relying on solar thermal power and also overlooks the potential for distributed “storehousing” of renewable energy.

Hydrogen Storage-Fuel Cell System to Smooth Out Intermittent Wind Power in Germany

October 12th, 2011 | by Andrew

Ontario's Hydrogenics has won a contract from the German city of Herten to install a hydrogen production-storage-fuel cell system that the city will use to smooth out intermittent wind power generation. "Electrolyzing water into hydrogen using excess intermittent renewable energy is the optimal clean pathway to smart grid stabilization and energy storage capacity," stated Hydrogenics'

Energy Bags Under the Sea to be Tested to Store Off-Shore Wind

April 18th, 2011 | by Susan Kraemer

An innovative new way to store wind power has been invented by researchers at the the University of Nottingham. Literally in inflatable bags under the ocean. A university spinoff, NIMROD Energy Ltd, has been launched by Professor Seamus Garvey, based on the research. Next month a prototype is to be tested in seawater
