After the expansion of the biggest battery project in world, milestones have been recorded for three more major solar-plus-storage and standalone battery storage projects in California, Hawaii and Florida.
In mid-July, the 100MW / 100MWh Minety battery energy storage system (BESS) was completed in Wiltshire, southern England. Something of a landmark project for the UK and Europe’s battery storage industries, here’s what’s happened so far, as reported by our sister sites Current± and Solar Power Portal.
The European Union has raised the bar for standards in the battery supply chain with a set of regulations it intends to introduce, but a group of academics and industry experts has pointed out some drawbacks with its approach. One of those experts talks to Energy-Storage.news about the implications for stationary energy storage systems.
US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm spoke of the urgent need to create an advanced battery manufacturing value chain at a roundtable event with representatives of industry. Here are some of the key points and takeaways.
In an interview with Energy-Storage.news, FlexGen CFO Yann Brandt talks us through the logical progression that he has taken from solar into energy storage and how he views the opportunities and challenges ahead.
Here are three interesting new California projects using solar and storage storage we’ve learned about in the past few days that combine technologies and applications to maximise the benefits of battery storage and solar.
Smart software and artificial intelligence can forecast everything from how much electricity will be generated and when it will be generated, to the right strategies for putting that electricity into different market opportunities. Energy-Storage.news speaks with Matt Penfold, VP of business development for digital at Fluence, about how the company has added 1.5GW to its portfolio of renewables and storage under management in Australia’s National Electricity Market (NEM).
There are perhaps four or five US states which have become prolific in their deployment of battery energy storage systems, but it’s also interesting to hear about what’s happening in regions where that development is still at an earlier stage.
Gatekeepers of the electric grid – and electricity markets – in the US discuss the primary challenges facing energy storage and reveal what their organisations are doing to unlock the true value of batteries and other storage.
