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.
A grid-scale battery energy storage system (BESS) has come online in northeastern France, which will be used by the national transmission grid operator RTE to assess the role of automated electricity storage in managing power flows.
Energy-Storage.news proudly presents this sponsored webinar with Honeywell, where we talk about the potential for battery energy storage across the Asia-Pacific region and how to address concerns around risk and bankability that hold back a powerful wave of decarbonisation opportunity.
Companies in the battery storage industry raised US$9.6 billion in corporate funding during H1 2021, with European manufacturing startup Northvolt once again the biggest single recipient of venture capital (VC) investment.
The July 2021 episode of the Solar Media Podcast, sponsored by Honeywell, is now available to stream, as we delve into everything you need to know about recent polysilicon trade sanctions in the US.
There’s still a disconnect between what’s achievable and what is actually being achieved in the drive to decarbonise. Despite a boom in renewable energy generation, Australia’s government line is instead commitment to “a gas-fired recovery”. That commitment is a dangerous one, says Lillian Patterson of the Clean Energy Council.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the US has forecast dramatic cost reduction trends for battery energy storage to continue on a rapid trajectory to 2030 with reductions continuing at a slower pace through to 2050.
The electricity system operator (ESO) arm of National Grid in the UK has outlined four different pathways for the future of energy in the country in its Future Energy Scenarios 2021 document, detailing the transformation of the energy mix and flexibility, the residential sector and the transport sector.
Battery storage is flexible, remarkable — and investable — but you need to know what you’re doing and know where the market opportunities and limits lie. Renewable and clean energy financier Laurent Segalen from Megawatt-X explains some of the things he’s seen as batteries have become an infrastructure asset in their own right.
Hybrid renewables are playing a strategic role in accelerating the decarbonisation of power generation and supporting the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as supporting the UK’s net zero by 2050 ambition and its interim emissions reduction of 78% by 2035. Consultant Peter Lo of ITPEnergised discusses the UK’s emergence into the hybrid energy sector and how it is better for our planet, better in the economics and better for offtake.
By the end of 2022, the volume of installed batteries in the UK is set to outstrip the demand from frequency services, marking a key tipping point for Dynamic Containment (DC).
A cross-border platform is being created in Europe for the provision of secondary reserve to maintain the grid's operating frequency, which will be open to energy storage in the coming years. Tanguy Poirot, analyst, and Corentin Baschet, head of market analysis at energy storage specialist consultancy Clean Horizon take a deep dive.
Nearly 12,000MWh of energy storage could be installed in the US during 2021 and the market will continue growing significantly over the next few years, according to research and analysis group Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.
A new 150MW / 300MWh battery energy storage project is being considered in Queensland, Australia, by Stanwell, an electricity generation and retail company which is owned by the state’s government.
There are several potential benefits to pairing electricity generation with energy storage, but US network operators still have some way to go to best accommodate the fast-growing interest in so-called ‘hybrid resources’.
It is increasingly becoming recognised that energy storage is crucial in helping the UK to meet its targets for reducing emissions and ensuring reliability of the energy system. In this panel discussion from the Energy Storage Summit 2021 held earlier this year, experts and stakeholders discuss what sort of changes might need to happen to make that contribution possible.
