Project seeks to develop energy storage

By 67AM KPUA News

Hawai`i Electric Light Company, the state and county have teamed up on a project to create a facility to test energy storage technologies at Kailua-Konas Hawai`i Ocean and Technology Park.

Lower cost energy storage is considered to be the missing link and one of the most challenging elements in the design and function of a clean energy micro-grid. Development of effective energy storage will allow utilities to accommodate more intermittent solar energy by providing a place to store excess production from photovoltaic panels.

The Hawai`i Ocean Science and Technology Park where the project will be based is managed by the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawai`i Authority.
