There are two standards governing EV charging. In the U.S. there is the SAE J1772 standard, while in Europe and China the IEC61851 standard is used.
The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.
In Part I of this blog post Eric Every, Yaskawa - Solectria Senior Applications Engineer, explores cases in which PV system designers should use Y-connectors, what the code implications may be, how they may be used with internal inverter combiners.
This series will focus on these questions in the area of transmission planning (regional load forecasting and solutions to identified grid needs), wholesale market design, and facilitation of utility business model reform.
A major advantage that bio-inspired batteries have as compared to other batteries is their ability to allow an instant recharge.
If storage costs can demonstrate price reductions comparable to what we've experienced with wind and solar, storage will be a big part of the story.
New product announcements and news from SPI 2016. Post your company news or read about what others are doing at the show.
If we stop and take a critical look at the fragility of our energy supply system, we see that it could be strengthened by distributing energy generation and storage. This means it's not just the utility company's job to store energy… it's everyone's job.
Winners for each category will be determined by the ESNA Advisory Board (50%) as well as public voting (50%).
Lithium has the purest of fundamentals of any 'commodity' out there, and the next oil barons look set to actually be lithium barons.
Solar Power International 2016 will take place from September 12th to 15th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This AltEnergyMag.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
With Albermarle's new mine in Nevada and Tesla's forecast 2018 demand of between 25,000 and 35,000 TPA, the U.S. Southwest is becoming a new hotbed for the lithium industry.
A key attribute of silicon in lithium ion batteries (LIB) is the higher capacity that Si can offer which leads to greater electric vehicle driving range or longer operating consumer electronics.
Laboratory testing of the company's novel prototype cathode material have yielded a set of critical data that translates into significant lithium-ion battery performance projections for BioSolar to target.
The real trick to opening the floodgates on microgrids is clear regulatory language that allows microgrid developers to serve the needs of an organization or community while also making the local electric utility whole for their services and investment.

Energy Storage & Distribution - Featured Product
Off-grid or on-grid, system designers and installers now have a comprehensive power conversion and storage solution from the name they trust: OutBack. Engineered from the ground up, OutBack's preassembled systems make balance-of-system components easier to specify and install in any residential or commercial installation. The Radian packs over 8,000 Watts of pure sine-wave continuous power and can be stacked into an 80 kW configuration for larger applications. The Integrated Battery Rack (IBR) is a 28.8 kWh one-box solution with all electrical connections made at the factory and shipped fully-assembled (without batteries) for quick connection on the jobsite.
