Bulk Energy Storage Investment Expected To Expand To $30b By 2022

Bulk energy storage on the grid, or ESG, is expected to grow exponentially to some $30 billion by 2022, according to a recently released report.

Pike Research, which published the report, cites the emergence of newer technologies that might enable the grid to move towards increased flexibility and efficiency.

A recent breakthrough that epitomizes this is the discovery of the graphene micro supercapacitor, which UCLA professor Richard Kaner and Cairo University graduate student Maher El-Kady stumbled upon. They believe such a supercapacitor could revolutionize the way we charge electronic devices and even electric vehicles.

 With sufficient investment in energy storage over the next nine years, the way we charge our smartphones may just take a minute.

Future energy predictions: Growth of flexibility and grid forming

  It is well known that COVID-19 has caused low energy demand and the growth of renewable energy across Europe. Now, Andrew Tang, Vice President for Energy Storage at Wärtsilä, predicts this will result in swift action to build better grid resiliency. The share of renewable power across Europe has skyrocketed over the last six…

Ultracapacitor UPS (U-UPS) for voltage dips and micro-interruptions

Power interruptions are the most frequent power supply problems with wide-ranging consequences for industry. The causes of these interruptions include short-circuits in the distribution grid, lightning strikes, the connection and disconnection of power plants as well as volatile energy producers such as wind and solar. Because technologies and production processes are becoming increasingly complex, the…
