In I and my readers in the SSD market had already lit the fuse for the market explosion which I predicted would inevitably follow - based on a market adoption and "why buy SSDs" user value propositions which were completely different to anything which the industry had thought about before. I was too busy then changing all my plans to reduce my editorial coverage of all other storage subjects to focus all my energies on the SSD market.
In one paper, sequestration consumed 25 percent of the plant's rated megawatt output capacity. Leakage[ edit ] Lake Nyos as it appeared fewer than two weeks after the eruption; August 29, For well-selected, designed and managed geological storage sites, IPCC estimates that risks are comparable to those associated with current hydrocarbon activity.
The Berkel en Rodenrijs incident in December was an example, where a modest release of CO2 from a pipeline under a bridge resulted in the deaths of some ducks sheltering there. Malfunction of a carbon dioxide industrial fire suppression system in a large warehouse released CO2 and 14 citizens collapsed on the nearby public road.
A release of CO2 from a salt mine killed a person at distance of meters. While the carbon had been sequestered naturally, some point to the event as evidence for the potentially catastrophic effects of sequestering carbon artificially.
The location of this pool of CO2 is not a place where man can inject or store CO2, and this pool was not known about nor monitored until after the occurrence of the natural disaster. For ocean storage, the retention of CO2 would depend on the depth.
Mineral storage is not regarded as having any risks of leakage. The IPCC recommends that limits be set to the amount of leakage that can take place. This might rule out deep ocean storage as an option. To further investigate the safety of CO2 sequestration, Norway's Sleipner gas field can be studied, as it is the oldest plant that stores CO2 on an industrial scale.
According to an environmental assessment of the gas field which was conducted after ten years of operation, the author affirmed that geosequestration of CO2 was the most definite form of permanent geological storage of CO2: Available geological information shows absence of major tectonic events after the deposition of the Utsira formation [saline reservoir].
This implies that the geological environment is tectonically stable and a site suitable for carbon dioxide storage. The solubility trapping [is] the most permanent and secure form of geological storage. To assess and reduce such liability, the leakage of stored gasses, particularly carbon dioxideinto the atmosphere may be detected via atmospheric gas monitoring, and can be quantified directly via the eddy covariance flux measurements,    Monitoring geological sequestration sites[ edit ] In order to detect carbon dioxide leaks and the effectiveness of geological sequestration sites, different monitoring techniques can be employed to verify that the sequestered carbon stays trapped below the surface in the intended reservoir.
Leakage due to injection at improper locations or conditions could result in carbon dioxide being released back into the atmosphere. It is important to be able to detect leaks with enough warning to put a stop to it, and to be able to quantify the amount of carbon that has leaked for purposes such as cap and trade policies, evaluation of environmental impact of leaked carbon, as well as accounting for the total loss and cost of the process.
To quantify the amount of carbon dioxide released, should a leak occur, or to closely watch stored CO2, there are several monitoring methods that can be done at both the surface and subsurface levels.
A direct method would be drilling deep enough to collect a fluid sample. This drilling can be difficult and expensive due to the physical properties of the rock. It also only provides data at a specific location.
Indirect methods would be to send sound or electromagnetic waves down to the reservoir where it is then reflected back up to be interpreted.
This approach is also expensive but it provides data over a much larger region; it does however lack precision. Both direct and indirect monitoring can be done intermittently or continuously.
It is done by creating vibrational waves either at the surface using a vibroseis truckor inside a well using spinning eccentric mass. These vibrational waves then propagate through the geological layers and reflect back creating patterns that are read and interpreted by seismometers.
Although this method can confirm the presence of CO2 in a given region, it cannot determine the specifics of the environment or concentration of CO2. Surface monitoring[ edit ] Eddy covariance is a surface monitoring technique that measures the flux of CO2 from the ground's surface.
It involves measuring CO2 concentrations as well as vertical wind velocities using an anemometer. Eddy covariance towers could potentially detect leaks, however, the natural carbon cycle, such as photosynthesis and the respiration of plants, would have to be accounted for and a baseline CO2 cycle would have to be developed for the location of monitoring.
An example of Eddy covariance techniques used to monitor carbon sequestration sites is the Shallow Release test. Another similar approach is utilizing accumulation chambers. These chambers are sealed to the ground with an inlet and outlet flow stream connected to a gas analyzer.
The disadvantage of accumulation chambers is its inability to monitor a large region which is necessary in detecting CO2 leaks over the entire sequestration site. It involves a satellite sending signals down to the Earth's surface where it is reflected back to the satellite's receiver.
From this, the satellite is able to measure the distance to that point. These high pressured, fluid filled layers affect those above and below it resulting in a change of the surface landscape. In areas of stored CO2, the ground's surface often rises due to the high pressures originating in the deep subsurface layers.
These changes in elevation of the Earth's surface corresponds to a change in the distance from the inSAR satellite which is then detectable and measurable.

Hi Roger, I am rooting for ARES. From the video you linked to, it sounds like they think their entry to the market is in regulation, but the more interesting issue here is the daily or seasonal storage that is suggested by your System Ratings figure.

roamer, Using Roger’s method, why not calculate the cost of energy storage systems for just 50% renewables to cover the much larger amounts of storage needed to meet demand during extended windless periods (which can occur at any time and at random) and low sunlight periods (which occur mostly in winter, due to snow, ice, fog, etc.), and to flatten out seasonal variations in solar output.
