Storing Renewable Energy on the Smart Grid

Storage is considered the “holy grail” of clean technologies, especially as it relates to the deployment of renewable energy. If we truly want to clean up the grid and make it smarter, all kinds of storage technologies will need to be considered.

BeaconIn this podcast, we’ll take a look at a couple storage methods that will enable the transformation of the electricity delivery system.

Bill Capp, President of Beacon Power, describes the importance of flywheels for regulating frequency and storing large amounts of energy on the grid.

Also, David Marcus of General Compression and Walter Doyle of Dakota Salts talk about the emerging market for compressed air energy storage and the economic potential for “dispatchable” wind.
