A new report recommends the DOE develop a strategy for grid-level energy storage. Potentially positive news for AES (AES -3.3%) and A123 (AONE -2.6%), whose lithium-ion systems help meet fluctuating demand; Beacon Power (BCON +11.4%), which uses "flywheel storage" to keep the grid stable; and American Superconductor (AMSC -0.6%), which sells superconducting cable.
