Low Cost, Compact Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES)

Technology Area: Energy Storage

Commercial Maturity: Concept

Abstract: SMES stores energy in the form of a magnetic field similar to a “magnetic” battery. Compared to traditional “electric” battery systems in terms of high power density, round trip energy efficiency (>95%), long life cycle, no maintenance, safety, and short recharge time, SMES technology is unparalleled.
