Two trial projects have been announced where vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) energy storage systems will support electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, one in South Korea, the other in Australia.
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) supplies most of the world’s cobalt, but exporting semi-finished or finished products rather than raw materials would better help the country capture the value of the metal used in high power lithium-ion batteries.
Canadian Solar subsidiary CSI Solar has signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement with Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL) that will focus on energy storage and renewable energy technology.
The Portuguese island of Madeira will be able to radically reduce its fossil fuel consumption while keeping electricity supply stable and reliable, thanks to battery energy storage system (BESS) technology.
Around 20 energy storage systems (ESSs) are to be deployed at roadside service stations in the UK where the grid supply isn’t enough for rapid charging infrastructure, the country’s government has said.
AGL, one of Australia’s biggest power generation and retail companies, has received government planning approval for a large-scale standalone battery storage system, a year on from its first announcement of the project.
