The two firm's Advanced Clean Energy Storage (ACES) project will deploy four types of energy storage technologies at utility scale, which include renewable hydrogen, compressed air energy storage, large-scale flow batteries, and solid oxide fuel cells.
The project is sited adjacent to the coal-fired Intermountain Power Project and will connect with the Western US power grid using existing infrastructure, according to the company. (Source: Magnum Development , Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Energy Manager, 29 May., 2019) Contact:

According to 155 utility survey respondents, 207 megawatts/257 MWh of energy storage were added to the grid last year, across 829 systems. Residential deployments accounted for 4.5 megawatts/7.5 MWh; non-residential deployments accounted for 54 megawatts/68 MWh and utility-owned deployments totaled 151 megawatts/181.6 MWh.
Utilities provided cumulative and 2016 data on energy storage installations interconnected in their service territories prior to December 31, 2016. Energy storage installations included in the results include batteries, flow batteries, kinetic energy storage (such as flywheels), supercapacitors, and compressed air energy storage. The survey did not include pumped hydropower, thermal energy storage, or electric vehicles.

The Floating Liquid-piston Accumulator using Seawater under Compression (FLASC) uses a double-chamber compressed air system for large-scale energy storage in the offshore environment. The dual chamber concept eliminates wide pressure and temperature fluctuations.
The FLASC concept developers -- Dr. Daniel Buhagiar during his Ph.D. research under the supervision of Prof. Ing. Tonio Sant --
are planning to construct a small-scale prototype for deployment later this year.
Development of the prototype is being carried out in partnership with Medserv plc., with support from the Institute for Sustainable Energy of the University of Malta.
FLASC is being financed by the Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) through the FUSION Technology Development Programme. (Source: University of Malta, PR, offshoreWIND.biz, June, 2017) Contact: University of Malta, Mechanial Engineering, Dr. Daniel Buhagiar, +356 2340 2340, www.um.edu.mt
