Third parties and utilities will finance around 84% of the market for grid-tied stationary battery energy storage by 2025, according to a report from Navigant Research.
From the outside, the VPP looks like a single power production facility that publishes one schedule of operation and can be optimised from a single remote site. From the inside, the VPP can combine a rich diversity of independent resources into a network via the sophisticated planning, scheduling, and bidding of DER-based services. Peter Asmus examines the role energy storage can play within this architecture.
Renewable Energy Systems ranks alongside US firm AES at the top of a new leader-board of energy storage systems integrators; its two new National Grid contracts will see it top the table, it says.
The power capacity of global installed in front of the meter energy storage is expected to reach 21.6GW in 2025, according to a new report by Navigant Research, with one of the firm’s analysts calling this exponential growth dramatic, but also realistic.
Utilities will “embrace energy storage” this year, while the development of standardised contracts and aggregated behind-the-meter storage are expected to take the energy storage world by storm, according to Navigant Research.
The market for residential solar paired with energy storage will grow tenfold by 2018, despite the relative failure of deployment to “live up to hype”, according to a new report from analysis firm IHS.
German mechanical engineering company Manz has supplied a lithium-ion battery production line to a research centre for the commercial production of the batteries, initially for the e-mobility sector, at the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Wuerttemberg (ZSW) in Ulm.
The annual energy capacity of batteries used in utility-scale applications will be seen to increase by a factor of more than 100 between now and 2023, according to a new report published by US analysis firm Navigant Research.
