DOE Energy Storage Technologies for Solar and Wind Power (AIA# TCESWP) (4 credit hours/4 HSW Hours)
Wind and solar energy are intermittent sources of energy: the wind does not blow continuously nor does the sun always shine.  If wind and solar power are ever to provide a significant portion of national energy use, devices are required that store the energy as it is generated and distribute the energy as it is needed.  This 4 hour course describes a number of such devices.  The three most promising technologies are singled out for detailed study: pumped storage hydropower (PSH), compressed-air energy storage (CAES), and high-energy batteries.  Issues of performance, site availability, costs, environmental impacts, the need for additional transmission lines, market development, and regulation are discussed.
' US Department of Energy
This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
  • Students will learn the characteristics of batteries, PSH, CAES, flywheels, capacitors, superconducting magnetic energy storage, vehicle-to-grid, and hydrogen energy storage.
  • Students will understand the concepts of power component and energy component of storage technologies.
  • Students will become familiar with the costs and performance of PSH, CAES, and high-energy batteries.
  • Students will become informed about site availability for PSH and CAES installations.
  • Students will understand environmental and social impacts (land and water use, greenhouse gas emissions).
  • Students will understand market and regulatory barriers to storage deployment.
