Scope of Energy Storage Research at CU - Boulder
Energy storage research at CU-Boulder focuses on energy storage technology applicable to both large-scale utility energy levels and intermediate-scale distributed energy levels in Colorado, and Renewable Energy Credit Trading and its effect on world markets. The corrent areas of research focus are:
- Utility-Scale Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage (PHES) Colorado Site Analysis
- Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) Opportunities in Colorado
- Underground Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage (UPHS) for Agriculture and Other Uses in Colorado
- Carbon Credit and REC Trading and its Success in the Developing World
In addition to these focused studies, this research fosters a continuing investigation of the energy storage industry, technologies, and literature associated with the storage of electricity.
