What are the roles of battery storage and hydrogen in the clean energy system of the future? Matthias Simolka, a consultant at Germany-based TEAM CONSULT takes a look at the roles each plays today and where we might see the dynamics go from here, with regard to everything from large-scale renewables integration to electric transport.
About a year after unveiling what is thought to be the first large-scale Tesla Powerpack battery project in the Balkans, Slovenian energy services company NGEN has confirmed that it has completed its second, even bigger project.
A 5MW / 20MWh energy storage system built around the batteries BMW uses in its i3 electric vehicles (EVs) will help integrate renewable energy into the electric grid in Uppsala, Sweden.
New proposals from the UK government intend to slam shut a loophole that had allowed for battery storage projects in the country to access more favourable payments for their flexible capacity.
Demand for more reliable electricity from a district of the Republic of Bashkortostan will soon be answered by the largest hybrid solar and energy storage project in the region to date.
Case study: Blockchain technology is being put to the test in northern Europe, writes Jean-Baptiste Cornefert of Sonnen.
Carsten Reincke-Collon of Younicos continues his look at the potential - and limitations - of using blockchain in the energy system. This second part covers how energy storage and storage management software could be the key to the 'puzzle'.
Blockchain technology is being touted as the next big step forward in the digitalisation of the energy system. But storage and storage management software are the critical pieces of the puzzle needed to maximise its potential, writes Carsten Reincke-Collon of Younicos.
Since the launch of the site almost four years ago, Energy-Storage.News (and PV Tech Storage as it was previously known), has consistently brought you high-quality blogs from both guest contributors and our team of journalists and experts here at Solar Media. Here's just a selection of some of the best guest blogs we ran from January to June, 2017:
Energy storage will increasingly be deployed to save money on electricity transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure, with nearly half of the global market to be found in the Asia-Pacific region by 2026, Navigant Research has said.
Energy storage provider and system integrator Younicos has been bought out by Aggreko, a power generation equipment and energy controls supplier.
Younicos CEO Stephen L. Prince ponders the role of energy storage within the three 'Ds' revolutionising energy: digitisation, decentralisation and decarbonisation.
