ECMWeb has a post on the increasing volume of energy storage projects being built - Nearly 40 New Advanced Energy Storage Projects Kicked Off in the First Half of 2013.
New technologies, including capacitor battery technology, lithium titanate oxide, nickel-iron, and solar thermal, are swelling the pipeline of advanced energy storage projects. At the same time, new variants on older technologies, such as power-to-gas, are also coming online. These developments define an industry that is dynamic, if still not mature. According to a new tracker report, “Energy Storage Tracker 3Q13”, from Navigant Research, 38 new advanced energy storage projects were announced, deployed, or begun in the first six months of 2013. In total, there are now 633 energy storage projects operating or under development worldwide, the study concludes.
