Swell Energy, a US company specialising in virtual power plant (VPP) projects aggregating residential solar PV and battery storage, has launched a distributed energy resources management system (DERMS) software platform.
We hear from two US companies which are stakeholders in both the present and future of energy storage, in this fourth and final instalment of our interview series looking back at 2021 and ahead to this year and beyond.
The CEO of Key Capture Energy has said the company will immediately be able to apply lessons learned from a 20MW battery project in New York to its pipeline of much bigger projects in the state to come.
Energy storage can change electricity’s status as the ultimate ‘just-in-time’ product, where supply and use have to be matched in real-time, but this won’t be possible without increasingly sophisticated software solutions.
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 technology provider and system integrator Fluence has acquired Advanced Microgrid Solutions, the California company known for its artificial intelligence (AI)-driven optimisation software platform for energy storage and flexible generation assets.
