Energy Storage for the Electricity Grid: Benefits and Market Potential Assessment Guide

January 2010

This guide describes a high-level, technology-neutral framework for assessing potential benefits from and economic market potential for energy storage used for electric-utility-related applications. The overarching theme addressed is the concept of combining applications/benefits into attractive value propositions that include use of energy storage, possibly including distributed and/or modular systems. Other topics addressed include: high-level estimates of application-specific lifecycle benefit (10 years) in $/kW and maximum market potential (10 years) in MW. Combined, these criteria indicate the economic potential (in $Millions) for a given energy storage application/benefit.

Renewables 24/7 Infrastructure Needed to Save the Climate

December 2009

Some critics of renewable energy say it is not ever going to be able to provide enough power for our current energy use, let alone for projected growth of energy demand. This is because it relies mostly on natural resources, like wind and sun, which don't appear to be available 24/7. This report shows how that thinking is wrong.
