New Compressed Air Energy Storage System Could Deliver Double ...

New Compressed Air Energy Storage System Could Deliver Double ... | Picto Communication Partner | Scoop.it

The technology is the brainchild of founder Danielle Fong, who initially wanted to use compressed air to power scooters, but has since turned her attention to a larger order of storage: grid-scale.


 


While compressed air storage isn't a new invention, by any means, Fong's innovations greatly improved the efficiency of this type of system, which has been hampered by efficiency losses of up to 50%. Fong's improved version uses a mist of water sprayed into the air storage tanks, which acts to absorb and store the heat generated from the compression (and release it on expansion), allowing the LightSail system to achieve a 90% thermodynamic efficiency in the process, and a 70% overall round-trip efficiency.

EV Battery Innovation and General Electric

EV Battery Innovation and General Electric | Picto Communication Partner | Scoop.it

We were just fooling around with the notion that new fuel cell technology could shake up the electric vehicle market, when here comes GE with another alternative: a flow battery that combines with a fuel cell to push EV range up to the Department of Energy’s goal of 240 miles, and even farther. The official rated range of Tesla Motors’ highly regarded but highly costly Model S is already 265 miles on a lithium-ion battery pack, so the big factor here is going to be affordability. With that in mind let’s take a look at that GE flow battery and see what’s doing.
