Whether connected to a main electricity grid or not, commercial and industrial (C&I) microgrids are increasingly able to offer resilient and independent power supply and — perhaps more importantly — electricity cost reductions.
GridBeyond is to optimise Greencoat Renewables’s first energy storage project. This 10.8MW front-of-the-meter battery is co-located with the Killala Community Wind Farm in Tawnaghmore Upper, Ireland and is expected to be online early next year.
In an interview with Energy-Storage.news, Enel X Battery Energy Storage solutions chief David J.A. Post explains how energy storage for C&I customers can have the maximum economical and ecological impact.
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.
