Energy Storage Systems in 2030

Which system infrastructure is most economic for the supply system? What will be the storage requirement in 2030? These questions addressed by scientists in the Merit Order study. For this purpose they recorded the characteristic values of possible storage technologies and distinguished them in regional terms. ... more

Standardising performance tests

Researchers from Fraunhofer UMSICHT are designing performance tests for battery storage systems. The tests are supposed to enable objective testing and comparison of different types of batteries for standardised and practical applications. Another goal is to apply these test cycles with a real lithium-ion battery and with a lead-gel or a redox flow battery for comparison. .

Economic check for energy storages

How cost-effective are energy storages? Scientists at the University of Duisburg-Essen investigated how economic energy storages are and combine methods from financial mathematics with energy-economic and stochastic models. The procedure should be more reliable than the conventional deterministic models. ... more

Lithium, the renewable coal

Lithium can be used for chemically storing electricity as part of a cycle in which it is first generated electrochemically using surplus electricity and then combusted as required in a power plant-compatible process to release the energy again. In the “LiKohle” project, researchers are investigating and assessing the possible reaction processes, for example in a carbon dioxide or nitrogen atmosphere. Valuable chemical raw materials can be generated as a by-product of the energy conversion. ... more

Storages in grid-connected PV systems

Photovoltaik storages can specifically relieve the grids and reduce the net expansion to a necessary measure. Which use PV storages have, depends on the operating method of the storage and the grid. First results gives the analysis "PV Benefit". .

Magnesium sulfide - an alternative to lithium

Batteries should demonstrate a high energy density, they should be inexpensive and should hold many memory cycles. Scientists develop such batteries in the project MASAK. They pursue a new concept: in contrast to the known magnesium - systems not magnesium cation are used for charge transfer, but sulfide anion. ... more

Balancing inflexible electricity generation

In the “Multi-Grid Storage” research project, researchers are analysing measures for balancing out inflexible electricity generation by linking the electricity, gas and heating supplies. For instance, it is intended to develop the storage and balancing measures required in Germany, identify useful interactions and develop criteria for their systematic optimisation. ... more

Hydrogen fuel production by electrolysis

In a study, scientists are determining the theoretical prerequisites for testing an integrated overall system at an industrially relevant scale. For the “electricity – hydrogen – large-scale storage – usage” system, principles are being developed that are intended to identify as many risks as possible for the implementation. ... more
