Gravity as Energy Storage - successful Energy Storage Europe has solutions
Pumped storage power plants have existed for 100 years - now they are experiencing a revolution. A company from Bavaria will soon store energy in gigantic concrete pistons, which are stuck in a cylinder filled with water. At the Energy Storage Europe - the leading exhibition for energy storage systems of the future we took a closer look.
Energy Storage technology - the Transrapid of the present?
In Germany nowadays it would not be a problem for heat and electricity to be stored in energy storage systems. And by doing so reduce the export or the throttling of alternative energy thereby reducing CO2 emissions by 10 percent - that is the amount that 10 percent of all cars in Germany emit. So why is this not happening? The reason is, in Germany unfortunately not surprisingly, probably a tax.
Many Storages save the Power - the Energy Storage Europe 2017
There is broad agreement that an energy conversion as decided in Germany is not possible without storage solutions. But other countries also need large batteries, so to speak, either to provide energy to people far away from traditional infrastructure, or to keep industries running despite unstable networks. At the Energy Storage trade fair, manufacturers and interested parties from over 60 nations took part in this event, 35 percent more than last year.
