As we move into a new decade, the question is whether the burgeoning US energy storage industry will be able to maintain its current path of rapid growth. All signs suggest that it will, argues Ricardo F. Rodriguez of Navigant Research.
Honeywell is rolling out fire detection and safety technologies for lithium-ion batteries via its Building Technologies business unit, combining it with alternative energy innovation group Nexceris’ gas detection systems.
Battery storage assets in the UK successfully landed capacity agreements in last week’s T-3 Capacity Market auction by listing as demand side response (DSR) assets.
A 1.2GW hybrid tender in India coupling pumped hydro, batteries, solar and wind power has achieved tariffs that are highly competitive against coal power, according to prominent industry figures.
Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association and 2019 Cleanie Awardee for Woman of the Year, says Federal issues remain important, but we shouldn't ignore the actions on the ground across the US.
EU decision-makers have recognised the key role energy storage can play, integrating it into the EU’s Clean Energy Package (CEP) in some critically important ways. Valeska Gottke at BVES looks at how Germany's industry is working towards these same goals.
Tesla has anticipated a solid 2020 on the renewable deployment front after its figures for 2019 proved stellar for storage installs but far less so for PV additions.
New-build solar and wind could outcompete most existing fossil fuels by 2025, while standalone energy storage also has a future in its own right, Nextera Energy executives have predicted.
Despite making huge strides forward, the energy storage industry’s work in helping stakeholders across the value chain understand the technologies and the roles they can play in a renewable energy future is far from done. Andy Colthorpe speaks with Energy Storage Association chief executive, Kelly Speakes-Backman, at the forefront of the industry’s push into unchartered regulatory, policy and public affairs matters.
Asset manager Capital Dynamics has purchased the mammoth Eland solar-plus-storage complex under development by 8minute Solar Energy in California.
New study predicts the energy storage industry will grow to employ millions by 2050, fuelling a renewables jobs boom as fossil fuel industries shed millions of workers.
While pumped hydro plants still account for around 96% of installed capacity of stationary energy storage worldwide, there will be more than 28GW of lithium batteries deployed for stationary storage applications by the year 2028, Navigant Research has predicted.
The success of efforts to decarbonise economies in the UK and elsewhere could hinge largely on how governments and business communities – particularly large commercial lenders – engage with the sector in 2020, a UK-based financier of solar and storage has said.
In today’s episode, ESN’s Andy Colthorpe and Liam Stoker explore the way grids are changing in the Middle East to accommodate clean energy, the role virtual power plants are playing in Italy, and the contrasting role coal is playing in Germany and bush fire-stricken Australia.
Recommendations made to the government of India as it prepares to publish its union budget for 2020 from industry group India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) include measures to support both the upstream of industry and the downstream of clean energy deployment.
