Sun in a box would store renewable energy for the grid

Sun in a box would store renewable energy for the grid

Engineers have come up with a conceptual design for a system to store renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, and deliver that energy back into an electric grid on demand. The system may be designed to power a small city not just when the sun is up or the wind is high, but around the clock.

Mainland France's largest grid battery storage facility

Mainland France's largest grid battery storage facility

When completed, it will be the largest power storage unit connected directly to the grid in mainland France. With a 6 MW / 6 MWh power rating, the unit will use its storage capacity to perform frequency regulation services for the grid, helping keep any frequency deviation in check.

A new CO2 - negative energy source as an alternative to coal and oil

Using an existing, operational plant in Austria, NextFuel is introducing a completely new solution to climate change that is CO2 negative, cheap and massively scalable. The NextFuel briquette, made from fast growing elephant grass on marginal land, favorably competes with the rising cost of oil and the price of coal in most markets.

Successful second round of experiments with Wendelstein 7-X

Successful second round of experiments with Wendelstein 7-X

The goal of fusion research is to develop a climate- and environment-friendly power station. Like the sun, it is to derive energy from the fusion of atomic nuclei. Since the fusion fire only ignites at temperatures of over 100 million degrees, the fuel - a low-density hydrogen plasma - must not come into contact with cold vessel walls. Held by magnetic fields, it floats in an almost contact-free manner in the interior of a vacuum chamber.
