Experts Frank Burke from the Irish Energy Storage Association and Bernice Doyle of Statkraft Ireland talk about the growing need for energy storage, how the market has rapidly developed so far and what it needs to look like to achieve a stable, decarbonised and secure energy system on the island of Ireland.
Germany’s second ‘Innovation Tender’ for clean energy projects combining different technologies has awarded 258MW of capacity to solar-plus-storage across 18 bids.
What are the best ways to match up long-duration energy storage technologies to applications and revenues? And what is ‘longer-duration’ storage and when will we need it? Florian Mayr and Dr Fabio Oldenburg at Apricum - The Cleantech Advisory offer some perspectives.
The Americas region is on track to leapfrog Asia-Pacific in terms of deployed energy storage by 2025, before accounting for more than half of global capacity by the end of the decade, new analysis from Wood Mackenzie suggests.
The UK reached a gigawatt of battery storage deployments in the second quarter of 2020 and the industry has 14.9GW in its development pipeline including 1.8GW of ready-to-build projects and 6.9GW with planning approvals in place.
Corporate funding into the battery storage sector in the first quarter of this year totalled US$4.7 billion across 17 deals, a huge leap from the equivalent period of last year, according to a new report from Mercom Capital.
RWE Renewables’ first European battery energy storage system (BESS) - an 8.5MWh project - has gone live in Dublin, Ireland.
Battery storage can be a significantly cheaper and more effective technology than natural gas in providing peaking capacity, according to a new study released by the Clean Energy Council, the industry group which represents Australia’s clean energy sector.
California’s goal of reaching 100% emissions-free retail electricity by 2045 is achievable, but will require huge deployments of long-duration energy storage, especially from 2030 onwards.
The US could see new mines and raw material production "scale up" as demand for battery energy storage systems and grid resilience increases over the next decade, according to Margaret O'Riley, battery, automotive and electrification business recruitment lead for Duke Energy Corporation.
Battery storage systems have been proven to be “extremely lucrative” for commercial and industrial (C&I) customers in the US, but a lack of customer knowledge of regulations and supply shortages of battery cells could yet stymie the market’s growth.
While interconnection queues for America’s electric transmission and distribution operators are “swelling up” with growing numbers of energy storage projects, some of the big challenges ahead include enabling fair market participation for both standalone storage and storage paired with generation.
The drive towards longer duration energy storage will likely be multifaceted, with different technologies finding their place both in front of and behind the meter.
Europe’s cumulative electrochemical energy storage installation capacity has gone past the 5GWh mark and this year is likely to see installations almost double from 2020’s figures.
Early days of the new regime have been applauded for their progressive nature, but lack of proper cost-benefit analysis for storage and concerns of trade tariffs remain
Almost 70% of home solar PV in Germany comes with battery energy storage attached and the country’s residential storage market represented around 2.3GWh of installed capacity by the end of 2020.
