Performance Potential 1.4.2016

Forecasting the potential of caverns

What potential is there for energy storage in the salt structures of Northern Germany? This question is being addressed by researchers in the InSpEE project. They are investigated the planning bases and selection criteria for constructing salt cavern storage facilities. The researchers are also investigated how much compressed air and hydrogen can be stored in these. ... more

Analysis 9.1.2015

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

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
