The new business will design, build, own and operate distributed solar and storage solutions for industrial, commercial and public-service customers.
Batteries are now one of a “huge variety of distributed energy assets capable of providing flexible capacity to the network”, but failure to manage them correctly will limit the market opportunities available, as well as the lifetime of the systems themselves, the data science head of UK flexible energy tech company Open Energi has said.
Sister site Current± has just taken an extensive look at the energy system operator’s (ESO) latest outline of potential outcomes for the next 30 years of Britain’s energy.
While software has been described by many as the single most important aspect of how an energy networks integrates, manages and then uses energy storage, two industry heavyweights have said that selling software licensing alone was not a viable business model for them.
VIDEO: Using solar and batteries to replace diesel and other fossil fuels at off-grid industrial sites is both a viable business model and a way to "inject" solar into the global energy mix in a smart – and economical way, MD Karim Wazni says.
The International Flow Battery Forum is taking place this week and long-time organiser, Anthony Price of consultancy Swanbarton, wrote to Energy-Storage.news with some of his views on the market and a snapshot of where development currently lies.
New finance minister promises support to lithium and EV manufacturing as well as solar and battery-based charging infrastructure.
Lithium-ion batteries are far more widely recycled than many people think, while China and South Korea are already leaders of the emerging circular economy of lithium, a report commissioned by the Swedish Energy Agency has found.
Despite policy uncertainty spanning years, and Brexit looming large, we still hear from the industry that the UK is a key market. Andy Colthorpe takes a closer look.
Cuomo said that the incentives for energy storage “will help Long Islanders grow their clean energy economy and create jobs while also improving the resiliency of their grid in the face of more frequent extreme weather events".
New Mexico and Tennessee have both released plans for new solar, storage and gas infrastructure.
Originally hosted on the Energy-Storage.news YouTube channel and of course the site itself as a video feature, our recent Editors’ Chat at Intersolar Europe / ees Europe 2019 is now the first episode to run on Solar Media’s new podcast channel.
The way the industry talks about batteries needs to change, SolarEdge founder Lior Handelsman has said, arguing that knowing the number of cycles of charge and discharge a battery can perform in its lifetime is essentially “meaningless”.
Standalone energy storage can challenge new gas peaker plants as a "mainstream" option in the US right now, Fluence has said.
Plummeting solar-plus-storage costs could help electrify millions worldwide by facilitating a ten-fold explosion of mini-grid systems, a new report from the World Bank has said.
The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has put numbers on the significant potential for energy storage to replace peaking capacity on the grid in the US, albeit with an understanding that as the peak changes, the goalposts will also move.
