New long-term and short-term storage concepts are continually being developed and improved upon to decrease capital costs and increase energy conversion efficiencies. Many of the novel ideas described here are based on existing technologies, but taken a step further in technology development or hybridized with other types of energy storage. Other concepts, such as electrical energy storage and chemical storage via electrolytic processes, are unique to this chapter. While not meant to be an exhaustive list of research topics, the goal of this chapter is to give the reader an overview of the current direction of development and its associated level of technology readiness.
