Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica: The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory has published a landmark report extensively detailing component and system-level cost breakdowns for residential PV solar systems equipped with energy storage. The decreasing cost of solar systems has been well documented over the last several years, with increased innovation and decreasing manufacturing costs combining to make solar PV a competitive and economic choice for residents and utilities across the United States, and in fact the world. As such, the costs attributed to the development of residential and utility-scale solar projects has been well defined for some time - even though that figure keeps decreasing.
The energy storage market is evolving. Thanks to innovative technologies, batteries and energy storage systems are increasingly able to store large quantities of energy from renewable sources. The potential for storing or distributing power from photovoltaic (PV) systems is far from exhausted, and ever more market opportunities are being created, for example with the help of mobile storage systems.

Bruce Gellerman for WBUR: The ability to store energy promises to revolutionize the way we generate, transmit and use electricity - making renewable sources such as wind and solar cheaper and more dependable. Massachusetts is one of just three states requiring electric utilities to build battery facilities in the future. A company in Marlborough believes it literally has the next hot technology in energy storage: molten metals.
Intersolar Europe is once again set to serve as the most important industry meeting point for the solar industry and its partners. Manufacturers, distributors, service providers and suppliers will gather in Munich to discuss the latest trends, technologies and products.

Danielle Ola for Energy Storage News: According to the latest GTM Research figures, energy storage is coming into its own and is no longer confined to a handful of US states. 21 states now have 20MW of storage projects proposed, in construction or deployed. Further, 10 states have pipelines of more than 100MW.
New Report Shines Light on Installed Costs and Deployment Barriers for Residential Solar PV with Energy Storage
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are making available the most detailed component and system-level cost breakdowns to date for residential photovoltaic (PV) solar systems equipped with energy storage-and quantifying previously unknown soft costs for the first time.
Ice Energy and Horizon Solar Power Complete Solar-Plus-Ice Storage System at Palm Springs Cultural Center
The solar-plus-storage system comprises 73.6 kW of solar panels and five Ice Energy Ice Bear 30s, which have replaced the Center's outdated HVAC system. During the day, the solar PV supplies the energy needs of the Center, including charging the Ice Bears. In the evening, the Ice Bears provide up to four hours of comfortable cooling using a fraction of the electricity normally needed.
Today, it is primarily homeowners who benefit from installing photovoltaic (PV) systems on their roofs. New models, however, intend for tenants to also share in what is known as the direct power concept and, in turn, take part in the urban energy transition. This topic will therefore be under the spotlight at Intersolar Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners, which will be held from May 31-June 2, 2017 in Munich.

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
