Energy Storage

Friday, February 05, 2016

An interdisciplinary team of U-M sustainability experts and engineers led by School of Natural Resources and Environment Postdoctoral Associate Maryam Arbabzadeh has developed a “ green guide” to aid developers and operators of energy storage systems. Titled “12 Principles for Green Energy Storage in Grid Applications,” the 12 Principles offer researchers, designers and industry professionals a clear, concise picture of the most important criteria to consider when designing and operating sustainable energy storage devices and systems.

An interdisciplinary team of U-M sustainability experts and engineers has developed a “ green guide” to aid developers and operators of energy storage systems. Titled “12 Principles for Green Energy Storage in Grid Applications,” the 12 Principles offer researchers, designers and industry professionals a clear, concise picture of the most important criteria to consider when designing and operating sustainable energy storage devices and systems. The principles are detailed in the January 19 issue of Environmental Science and Technology.  

Because of the intermittency of electricity production from renewables, energy storage is an important complement to renewable power. It’s a way to keep using solar energy in the dark and wind energy on a calm day. The renewable industry is growing dramatically; the US boasts twice as many solar workers as it did five years ago. The deployment of storage technologies is expected to grow in tandem as the use of wind, solar, and other renewable technologies continue to grow.
