X-Prize Lab @ MIT ~ Energy Storage Challenges

I was very pleased to just listen in on the X-Prize Lab @ MIT's prize design class final presentations. This Fall 2009 the theme is Energy Storage. Interdisciplinary teams of students from all around the Institute proposed four somewhat different ideas...
  • Power To The People -- Distributed home-scale storage
  • REStore -- Grid-scale storage for supporting renewables
  • Clean Aviation -- Aviation storage for green flight applications
  • Rural Power -- Affordable storage for the developing world
Also check out this map of the energy storage technology domain...
