SPONSORED: In this free whitepaper, EDF explains how to maximise opportunities for businesses to add flexibility, discussing how taking a more flexible approach to energy is helping businesses gain a vital edge in the circular economy based around innovative ways of working.
What better way to power sustainable growth than to use what you already have? This whitepaper shows businesses across Britain how to do that, while sharing EDF’s own experiences of putting its energy solutions to work across its many sites.
SPONSORED: Today’s energy landscape is changing. There is a global energy transition underway in which renewable energy sources, led by wind and solar power, will ultimately replace legacy thermal generation. Falling supply costs, coupled with technology innovations in energy storage, software, and automation, are facilitating this change.
Battery storage | Lithium-ion batteries are becoming a popular choice stationary storage systems but so far lack any consistent standards governing safety and performance. Matthias Vetter and Stephan Lux from Fraunhofer ISE report on two major research projects that could pave the way for new safety standards for li-ion batteries.
The challenge here is to improve the energy efficiency for Eidesvik’s fleet of vessels Eidesvik Offshore is a Norwegian ship company that specializes in offshore logistics, seismic and underwater operations. With two dozen ships in its fleet, the environmentally sensitive company has a keen interest in finding ways to reduce fuel consumption, emissions and maintenance costs.
This case study examines system integration of solar and storage in Western Australia. The AU$40 million (US$30 million) DeGrussa Solar Power Project is owned by France-based renewable energy firm Neoen, while German solar specialist juwi Group was responsible for development, EPC and O&M. By installing a 10.6MW solar PV plant and a 6MW battery storage system, diesel consumption can be reduced throughout the day and to some extent after the sunlight begins to dwindle.
This report explains the complex market opportunities for UK energy storage and sets out a series of far-reaching recommendations to level the playing field for rapidly-developing energy storage technologies – some of which are locked out of current market arrangements.
