The Multi-Tasking Energy Storage Battery

Play

Most energy storage batteries can only address short-term issues – for example, frequency and voltage regulation – or long-term issues, including time-shifting and ramping. However, with the help of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a new company has released a battery that does both simultaneously. Russ Weed, vice president of business development for UniEnergy Technologies, which is an offshoot of Pacific Northwest National Labs, explains in this podcast interview.

  1. Lisa,
    In your article “multi-tasking ENERGY STORAGE BATTERY” you seem to miss the MAJOR reason to have a battery. THE BATTERY STORES ENERGY to be used when there is a lack of wind or solar generation to support the load being supplied.
    When the wind or sun output energy exceeds the load requirement the excess is used to recharge the battery.
    These systems have been in use for 50 years and work very well when properly designed.
