    BREAKTHROUGH BATTERY STORAGE FROM GE USES CO2

    GE has figured out how to make solar power batteries using greenhouse gasses

    Brad Reed, March 10, 20126 (BGR)

    “…GE Global Research has been working with the U.S. Department of Energy to come up with a way to use excess carbon dioxide produced by power plants to store extra solar power and deliver it back to the grid for later use…There are two major components to this solar power storage system: The first component captures solar energy and keeps it stored in molten salt, while the second component takes surplus electricity from the grid to cool off carbon dioxide to the point where it becomes dry ice. To keep the solar energy stored, the molten salt will then be released into the CO2, which will act as a battery capable of deploying power when needed…The CO2-molten salt mixture will then flow through a specially designed CO2 turbine [with an up to 100 MW fast electricity per installed unit response]…It’s going to take some time for this technology to come to market, however — GE is building a conceptual design of the turbine system right now and it could be another decade before it’s ready…” click here for more
