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.

  Cells up to 8000 Ah

OGRON mentions cells with up to 8000 Ah. Until now, the largest cell known by me was the 240 Ah cell from Kokam. The photo shows a 200 Ah cell, the 240 Ah version is only correspondingly more thick What to do with an 8000 Ah cell? Let's start with a 42 tons truck. 6 tons with 160 Wh per kg makes 800 kWh batteries. But built with 8000 Ah cells, this would be only 100 Volt.( 800.000 Wh / 8000 Ah = 100 V ).

This first thought shows, 8000 Ah cells are for much larger applications than for a 42 tons truck.

  Determined for larger applications

Storage power plants for electric power, large ships, only for this applications are 8000 Ah cells useable. Until now, we examined lithium batteries only regarding to electric mobility. Gasoline and Diesel vs electric power and lithium batteries had been the big compare.

But here, we have to compare at a complete different level. Lithium batteries vs pump storage power plant. Lithium batteries vs Compressed air power plant. That are complete new dimensions. Our cars burn only the best part from crude oil. Because of environment requirements sulfur reduced Diesel. But big ships burn the last dirt of crude oil, the heavy oil. Even there are different sorts, The bigger ships can use lower qualities of heavy oil.

  Price estimation 300.-EUR

Because of the absence of prices on the Ogron web site, we have to combine "economical production technology" with our interrogations about the price development. We estimate for 2010 to 2012 a price at 300.-EUR per kWh capacity.

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.

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.

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?

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?
