Company Wins Chinese Pumped Storage Deal

China State Grid Corp., the nation’s largest energy provider, bought four pumped-storage units from Germany’s Voith GmbH for a renewable-power plant in Jiangxi province.

The plant will generate 2,400 megawatts once built, valuing the order at 70 million euros ($86 million). The facility will store power generated from renewable sources and release it through turbines during periods of high demand.

China, the world’s biggest carbon emitter, has 24 pumped- storage plants, with a total installed capacity of about 18,700 megawatts. Beijing aims to generate 11% of its energy from renewable sources by 2015 and 20% by 2020.

Evaluating The Economics Of Gas Storage For The Grid

Power-to-gas is the method of turning electricity into hydrogen gas using electrolysis. The resulting hydrogen can then be used as vehicle fuel, combined with carbon dioxide to make methane (a natural gas replacement), or injected into natural gas infrastructure as hydrogen in low concentrations. If made from surplus renewable electricity, the generated hydrogen is low-carbon…
