Following our recent webinar on ultra-capacitors and the role they could play in the energy transition, Johan Söderbom, EIT InnoEnergy’s thematic leader for energy storage and smart grids, explains the deepening connection between wind power and ultra-caps.
Vertically integrated solar PV company Canadian Solar will install 75MW / 300MWh of battery energy storage at a California solar power plant owned by Goldman Sachs Renewable Power.
Gore Street Energy Storage Fund has awarded NEC Energy Solutions both EPC and long-term O&M contracts for 100MW of storage in Northern Ireland.
Redflow’s zinc-bromine based devices have been picked by the New Zealand Rural Connectivity Group to help extend mobile coverage and internet connectivity to thousands of homes and businesses in remote areas.
Battery asset optimisation firm Habitat Energy has landed a contract from UK clean energy investment company Arlington Energy to manage a 40MW battery, as the former sets its sights on assembling a leading portfolio.
Unlike the solar PV sector where there’s often an attitude of “let’s sell the project first and worry about O&M later,” storage projects must have services built in to the thinking and financial process from the beginning. With storage, a strong O&M plan and team become part and parcel of making and closing a strong productive deal, NEXTracker's Marty Rogers argues.
Both energy storage asset owners and companies setting up to provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services for battery installations need to commit to higher levels of due diligence when selecting contractors according to RES Group’s head of solar and O&M.
Following the wishes of its customers, Germany-headquartered PV firm IBC Solar has launched a new package that helps partners in 30 countries with the planning, installation and maintenance of its lithium-ion energy storage solutions.
The key value propositions for commercial energy storage are based around “maximising economics subject to operating constraints”, according to Stem and other energy storage system integrators and operators.
Power equipment manufacturer Wärtsilä has launched hybrid and standalone energy storage systems, targeting areas where it sees “high market potential”, including remote microgrids and solar PV integration.
Belectric has developed PV plants on every continent of the globe except Antarctica and also delivers energy storage system projects and offers a wide range of energy storage solutions including in-house battery systems, turn-key large-scale battery storage as well as scalable container solutions. Managing director of Belectric Solar and Battery, Frank Amend, spoke to Energy-Storage.News about the company's recent acquisition by RWE subsidiary innogy and where the company sees energy storage (and solar) going.
