Energy storage is becoming recognized as an important technology option contributing to renewable integration and grid stability. There is a portfolio of technologies available for use in a wide spectrum of applications. Building on previous work funded by DOE, the $185M ARRA stimulus grants have scaled up storage application by an order of magnitude. This presentation will discuss new projects in the areas of wind integration, frequency regulation, distributed storage, and compressed air energy storage, as well as a number of new cutting edge research projects.
