Hypnetic, a German startup, has developed a way to retrofit shipping containers with an innovative pumped energy solution – minus the reservoirs.
There are many potential ways to store surplus renewable energy, but hydrogen is emerging as one of the most promising. New advances are making it cleaner and more practical.
Is it possible for heavily industrialized nations to create energy security with renewable power alone? Yes, it is! However, one of the most important factors in achieving this is efficient storage technologies.
What if the heat from, say, server farms or subway tunnels can be used to warm homes? Waste heat recovery technologies seek to close the energy loop.
A new approach to storing renewable energy looks to recreate the process of hydroelectric dams under the ocean.
A new energy storage system - consisting of huge quantities of rocks - is being tested in the Port of Hamburg.
While the concept of storing thermal energy in molten salt has been around for decades, a new approach - from one of Google's sister companies - combines hot energy with cold to create a temperature difference that can be utilised to generate power.
When Adam and Eve were donning their iconic leaf in the Garden of Eden, back in those creation days, little did they know that a few generations down the line, their very outfit would be looked at as a possible energy storage device, or battery. As far fetched as it may sound, this ain't the stuff of fairy tales...
