Electricity Storage

  1. 1. Did you know... There is an EXCESS of electricity in NL ...at night when demand is low
  2. 2. ...so Windmills and other green electricity producers can be forced to shut down. While the coal plant burns on...
  3. 3. Electricity demand over 3 days
  4. 4. Demand Response Hypothetical future Green electricity Electricity from Solar PV
  5. 5. Demand Response Hypothetical future Green electricity Electricity from Solar PV+Wind
  6. 6. Demand Response Hypothetical future Green electricity Total from Solar PV+Wind
  7. 7. Demand Response Hypothetical future Green electricity Production = Demand
  8. 8. So, can we store electricity? Yes
  9. 9. Why? (1) For Profit (2) For Efficiency (3) For Sustainability
  10. 10. How can we store electricity?
  11. 11. Electric Mountain Pumped Storage Reservoir “ Natural Battery”
  12. 12. Pumped storage hydroelectricity If: electricity demand = low And: production = high Then: Pump water into elevated reservoir Technology: Reversible turbine/pump
  13. 13. Pumped storage hydroelectricity If: electricity demand = low And: production = high Then: Pump water into elevated reservoir Technology: Reversible turbine/pump
  14. 14. Pumped storage hydroelectricity If: electricity demand = low And: production = high Then: Pump water into elevated reservoir If: electricity demand = high And: production = low Then: Release water through turbine Technology: Reversible turbine/pump
