New Type of Battery for Storing Solar Power Energy for night time use| MIT Technology Review

New Type of Battery

Aquion manufactures New Type of Battery, long-lasting batteries for storing renewable energy. (Demo: #Aquion manufactures cheap, long-lasting batteries for storing renewable energy.

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Another New Type of  Battery for solar energy  Hits the Road

Mount Pleasant in Pennsylvania will be the site for the production of yet another new type of battery. The company will be known as Aquion Energy and will start producing a new type of battery. Consequently, that was invented by professor J Whitacre. So, from the material science department of the Carnegie Mellon University.

These new type of battery is expected to cost about the same to produce as lead-acid ones. Naturally, that are in common use today for a multitude of applications. But are expected to last twice as long. They  will be primarily used for the storage of the suns power generated . Significantly, from Solar Panels for Electricity and  Turbines. Offering a storage facility for homes in rural and isolated areas. Knowingly, that use the off grid powered by the sun. So, which  supplies and require storage for night use and bad weather when the sun is not available. At the moment these people use different types of lead-acid ones and fossil fueled engines powered by diesel as standby supplies when the sun does not shine for whatever reasons.

For the reasons that I have explained this new type of battery

So, is expected to be used in countries that do not have an electric grid, but are expected to get electricity in the near future and because this new type of battery will be available for storage, then these countries will save a huge amount of money by running diesel generators when the sun does not shine and at night. I am sure that Africa will be one of the first places to benefit from such inventions.

The new company have also used ingenious ways of saving money during the manufacturing process of the new batteries, using machines that were originally used for making aspirin pills to make the thin plates used to make the positive and negative electrode materials. They also use parts from a sweet wrapping machine to pack the electrodes together to collect current.

The company expects to start full scale production in early 2014 and hopes to make enough batteries to supply 150 solar powered villages.

New batteries to change solar energy storage

The Strategic Sourceror (blog)
While electricity sourcing from storage technologies for renewable energy is only emerging, it could soon become mainstream.

Solar power is an excellent alternative to traditional energy sources.

It’s clean, renewable, and increasingly popular. However, one of the challenges of solar energy is storing it for use when the sun isn’t shining. This is where batteries for solar storage come in.

Batteries used for solar storage come in a variety of types and sizes. They are designed to store the energy. Of course, it is generated by solar panels during the day and released when needed. This is especially useful for homes and businesses that use solar power as their primary source of electricity.

for solar storage is the lithium-ion battery. These batteries are lightweight, have a high energy density, and can be recharged quickly. They are also relatively long-lasting and require minimal maintenance.

Another type of battery commonly used for solar storage is the lead-acid battery. These batteries are more affordable than lithium-ion batteries, but they are also heavier and require regular maintenance. Despite their drawbacks, lead-acid batteries are still widely used for solar storage.

Overall, batteries for solar storage play a crucial role in the adoption and success of solar energy. They allow solar power to be stored and used when needed, making it a more reliable and accessible energy source for everyone.

New batteries-Solar Energy Storage

New Types of  Batteries  for Solar Storage” Not Far Away”

Although we have been trying out new systems for storing the energy produced by the sun. There do not seem to be any major developments coming from the big energy players. Millions of individuals have been trying different methods out using all types of devices and different types of batteries

The most successful battery at the moment appears to be the AGM battery (Absorbed Glass Matting). This type of New 

Batteries will discharge to much lower levels than a normal wet lead-acid battery, the type that is used in cars and trucks. But as we all strive to make renewable energy, other methods have started to come to life. By the way, one of the best AGM storage batteries on the market is made by Trojan batteries . They are a little more expensive than other brands, but they are a heavy-duty quality product and well worth looking at if you are interested in building a small bank of solar storage batteries.

A new kid on the block

will shortly be the development of the Lithium-Ion solar storage unit. The idea has come from the development of new batteries called lithium-ion batteries in electric cars. These storage units will be tailor-made so that consumers can just buy them and plug them into a solar panel system or a wind turbine. The idea comes from the car maker Tesla, which may work with Bosch batteries to produce this product.

In my opinion this will open the gates for more companies to come up with more products and will be of great advantage to home owners and businesses alike.

A typical home owner with solar panels

Of course, you could store the electricity when the cost is at its lowest and then use the electricity stored in the home or business when the rates are at their highest by using new batteries . I actually have a bank of solar panels on my roof here in the UK.

Of course and they work really well. 

So, even now in November we still produce electricity on a sunny day. My solar system goes into the national grid. Naturally, the electric produced is bought from us by the electricity provider. Conveniently, if such storage system came onto the market. Such as a custom  custom made one. Then I would think about changing things around.

I have sold New batteries all my working life, but I must confess that these are the most exciting times for change, different battery technologies and inventiveness coming from our Universities and colleges.

Update: Since I wrote this post, things have moved on at a slower pace. Introductions to the solar market now include ready-made battery storage packages for home owners and business alike.
