Future of energy storage is Today!

 

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy (RE) technologies are widely used for energy generation around the globe, even in the countries with large-scale oil and gas reserves. For example, Iran is developing renewable energy use by constructing solar power plant of 2 GW electric capacity.

According to the head of Tesla Company Mr. Elon Mask, it is the development of renewable energy will be salvation for humanity with regard to the global energy crisis. So, what is the future of renewable energy sources and what a role the energy facilities will play in it? About the formers below.

Renewable Energy is an energy produced from inexhaustible sources (by planetary scale). Main feature of the Renewable Energy is the possibility to get it from environmental processes of a permanent nature. Unlimited sources which renewable energy produced from are the following: solar energy, wind power, water streams, geothermal heat sources, tidal waves capacity and others. These resources are naturally replenished capacity in the environment.

Fast grow of alternative energy generation technologies out of renewable sources observed in the recent years around the world. On the one hand, this process positively affects the status of the environment and the natural resources of the planet, and on the other side, it further exacerbates the problem of effective renewable energy. With the increased share of RE in the energy balance of individual countries and in the world, this issue requires an immediate solution. Advanced developments and research provide decisions to this challenge in the form of ES facilities comprising pumping hydropower plants, compressed air technologies, and various types of chemical technologies, electric accumulators, flywheels, capacitors, and others.

Thus, the most influential factor that limits the development of RE is the uneven and irregular generation by the power plants (especially it relates the wind and solar power plants). The fact is that their generation capacity heavily depends on changing environmental conditions — wind speed, the amount of sunlight that could be obstructed by clouds and other factors.

With 20% share of renewable energy in the total energy balance, this issue could be coped within support of conventional power plants (nuclear power plants and thermal power plants). Such a mixed-type power generation system has a significant advantage being flexible in terms of energy and distribution matching actual power demands. However, with increasing share of the renewable sources, the issue of storage and distribution could be solved only by introduction of the relevant developments.

With regard to this aspect, countries with a large share of hydroelectric power plants (e.g. China, Switzerland, and Norway) are in the most favorable position today. This is because HPPs could quickly and easy adjust generation capacity to compensate fluctuations of the RES power plants.

An excellent alternative for hydroelectric power plants today is a pump storage hydro power plant (PSHPP). Modern technologies enable to construct such a plant anywhere in the world. PSHPP is a huge accumulation battery that preserves energy by pumping water into the upper basin and generating electricity for the grid when the water flow directed through the turbines. Among the shortcomings of the PSHPP plans is high cost of construction and energy loss (up to 20%) during the operation.

Hence, a variety of technologies becoming a solution to the expansion of renewable energy from renewable sources. Development of the former depends not only on the methods of efficient energy use, but also on the possibilities to preserve generated energy.

A radical solution to the problem lies in cheap and handy energy devices that could satisfy different customer demands. Moreover, the world’s storage industry elaborated its’ own answer to this challenge.

Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecasting stable development of technologies and ES systems market. According to their experts, this progress will have a steady growth under the same scenario as it used to be for solar energy development in 2000-th and in the next 13 years total capacity of ES facilities should be equal to 125 GW (generation output be that time shall be increased to 305 GWh). One third of US residents are already using ES technologies, and this indicator will continue to grow in rapid rates.

Starting from 2016 until 2030, the global ES market will be doubled six times, as predicted by analysts from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).

The forecasts of the BNEF report show that over the next 13 years 70% of all storage capacities will be concentrated in eight countries. The leaders of the ES systems market shall be the USA, China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Australia, India and the United Kingdom. It is natural that the industry growth makes incentives for investments. More than $100 billion will be invested into the ES business over the period from 2016 to 2030.

Rapid grow of the storage industry is also forecasted by Morgan Stanley analytics. They predict $4 billion market value by 2020 compared to the current $300 million.

Signs of projected growth are already visible: e.g. decline of the prices for RE and from ES systems, which establishes conditions when wind and solar energy become the base source for municipal sector in the USA. Electricity peak demands are the morning and afternoon hours. At this time, the so-called “peak plants” are engaged to off-load the grid. However, start-ups of these plants is a very costly for communal utilities. It is much more convenient and cheaper for them to have interconnections to the storage facilities during the peak times.

Energy storage is an inexpensive source, compared to the plants operating during the peak times. Large-scale storage facilities will enable to create more distributed network structure, more efficient for communal sector utilities and for owners of the solar panels on roofs and electric vehicles as well.

Renewable energy facilities are our nearest future, which has already begun.
