31 July 2017 eric morel 0

I am always surprised by the speed at which some fashions are propagated and the rapidity with which they are sometimes forsaken. These excessive speeds reflect the impact of emotional considerations that are not in favor of a serene look at these fashions. Battery storage […]

Storage and demand response: opposition or complementarity?

3 July 2017 eric morel 0

In terms of electricity, energy efficiency, the emergence of intermittent energies (solar, wind), the increasing difficulty of balancing networks, the desire to reduce the peak loads to limit investments in complementary capacities dedicated to these peaks of consumption, have increased the need to manage demand. […]

Developing storage, solar and wind power: a question of trust

10 April 2017 eric morel 0

Storage, solar and wind are linked by common interests: storage clearly helps to develop and value intermittent energies, enabling production to be stored, as long as the optimal conditions for consumption or distribution are met. But these technologies have another characteristic in common: for each […]

Store energy means to accept to lose some

21 September 2015 eric morel 0

The energy storage in general, and especially the electricity storage, is now often seen as a potential “killer application” of the energy market, making intermittent energy sources such as solar and wind power, more desirable. Beyond a certain level of penetration of these energy sources, […]
