Lithium batteries vs Kaprun

How to compare lithium batteries with a pump storage power plant. What would it cost to built Kaprun new? How is the compare of costs?

  OGRON promises the storage revolution

30000 cycles, 20 years and by us estimated 300.-EUR per kWh. Storage tasks in the grid are mentioned as important target market. But how to compare this data with a typical storage power plant ?

Kaprun becomes just right now extended with Limberg II. Just right now are 130 MW pumping power and 330 MW electric power generation installed. With a new connection of the existing of the two existing artificial lakes Moserboden and Wasserfallboden, Kaprun will be 480 MW more powerful. 480 MW more pumping, 480 MW more power generation. This extension makes 365 Million EUR. It would be much more expensive, when there would not be the 2 existing artificial lakes.

  2 GWh lithium batteries vs Kaprun Limberg II

When daily 4 hours power production with 480 MW is the essential feature of Kaprun Limberg II, this essential feature is representable with 2 GWh lithium batteries for 600 million EUR,

  How expensive, how many times to built

How expensive would be a complete new built pump storage power plant? How much influences the lower efficicency - 85% pumping, 90% electricity generation and the long delivery lines - the rentability? But most important, how often would it be possible to built a storage power plant like Kaprun? The need for storage technology is at 80% share of wind and sun about 2 magnitudes greater than at atomic power.

Electric power storage is at wind and solar power no question of cost optimzation, but a question of existence.

  Direct at the energy producer

Storage power plants would not be built where it is geological possible, but where the storage is best placed. For example lithium battery in the cellar, photovoltaic on the roof. The battery building beside the wind power plant.

Lithium has the best expectations to solve our problems at our mobility and the day/night balancing of a photovoltaic oriented power supply.

  Lithium battery as electric power storage

Basic calculation models for lithium an electricity storage. The textbook to recognise early, at what applications is rentability already given, or is short before rentability.

OGRON new energy storage
A new dimension in application possibilities for lithium batteries promisses the company OGRON. First time are storage power plants mentioned as target market.

Storage crisis of renewable energy
The whole solar electric power and wind energy branch denies the storage crisis. The standard answers about the storage problem are easy to disprove.

Who sits in the glass house should not throw stones
In plain lack of knowledge about the storage problem, the say ''Atomic power highway'' or ''Atomic power refinement system'' about infrastructrue to store electric power.

Pump storage power plant
The storage demand for a bic scale enlargement of solar- and wind power is with pump sorage power plants not possible. New technology is indispensably necessary.

Parameter for the storage of electric power
What are the cost criteria for an electric power storage? What are the costs to store electricity? Javascript calculator for the basic parameters to store electric power.

Sea water example
The sea water desalination is used as an example, how different electric power storage systems can influence the price for solar electricity.

Sea water desalination with solar power
So much sun, why are not all seawater desalination plants operated by solar electric power? The reason until now had been the parameters of electric power storage technology.

More important than photovoltaic for 1.-EUR Watt peak
Lithium batteries with extrem much load cycles in a price range around 300.-EUR per kWh capacity are more important for the price of solar electricity than photovoltaic for 1 EUR W peak.

The dream from hydrogen
In despair about the insufficiency of lead acid batteries as electric power storage, the dream from hydrogen and fuel cell started.

Hydrogen fails at day/night balance
Hydrogen fails at the efficiency of the whole cycle from the electrolysis to the fuel cell at the day/night balance for solar electric power. Example with a sea water desalination system.

CAES costs
There are theories to make caverns in big salt layers for compressed air energy storages. This is to balance the wind energy. How expensive can a CAES be?
