While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Windmaker Designing Wind Storage System

    Siemens researches thermal storage system for wind energy

    Michelle Froese, September 27, 2016 (Windpower Engineering & Development)

    “…[World-leading German wind turbine manufacturer Siemens, in partnership with the Technical University Hamburg Harburg (TUHH) and urban utility company Hamburg Energie, is] researching a storage solution…[Future Energy Solution (FES) converts excess wind energy to heat in rock fill and stores it] with an insulated cover…When there is a need for additional electricity, a steam turbine converts the heat energy back to electricity. The principle of this store promises an extremely low-cost set-up…Siemens is currently operating a test set-up…[and] researching how to make charging and discharging the store particularly efficient…The store is being tested at temperatures over 600° C…Just like a hot air gun, a fan uses an electrically-heated air flow to heat the stones to the desired temperature. When discharging, the hot stones in turn heat the air current, which then heats a steam boiler — the pressure drives a generator via a steam turbine…[The full-size FES] will generate so much steam that a Siemens compact steam turbine can generate output of up to 1.5 MW of electricity for up to 24 hours a day. The researchers expect to generate effectiveness of around 25%...” click here for more
