EV batteries still have storage capacity, typically at 80 percent, after they're removed from their vehicles and can be reclaimed for a "second life" as stationary power sources.
This system is working good in a 4000 sq ft shop & house combo, but could use more storage for peace of mind & will likely upgrade next year.
Flow battery technology is immature. There is everything to play for and although pumping liquids from reservoirs does not sound compact or reliable in a car but who knows? Watch this space.
The lithium ion battery market is forecast to expand to $46.2 billion through 2023, which represents an 11% average annual growth rate.
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.

Energy Storage & Distribution - Featured Product
The sonnenBatterie eco is a fully-integrated, all-in-one residential energy storage solution that utilizes intelligent energy management software and lithium-ion batteries to turn houses into smart energy homes. The system is available in a variety of storage capacities and configurations, allowing for extensibility and expansion and integrates with new and existing PV systems. The sonnenBatterie eco allows customers to save money every single day by storing excess energy generated by solar PV systems and using the stored energy from the battery to power homes when the utility rates are more expensive or when the grid is out of service in addition to enabling customers to go off-grid.
