SP5 - Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage

Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage, SMES, stores energy directly as electricity, and this allows a very fast delivery of high power at high efficiency.

The central vision / mission is to enable highly efficient, reliable and cost effective fast SMES solutions. Our general objectives are to establish a joint European characterization and demonstration platform for SMES related super-conducting materials with higher operating temperatures, to implement these materials in modular SMES approaches and to increase volumetric energy and power density thereby decreasing the system costs for becoming fully cost-competitive with alternative short term energy storage.
