Energy Storage - Lithium Iron vs Lithium Ion Battery Applications

There are several key differences between the Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery and the Tesla Powerwall. First, an Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery is available in traditional nominal voltages of 12V, 24V and 48V, making it fully compatible with common battery-based inverters and charge controllers from major manufacturers like Outback, Schneider Electric, Magnum, MidNite Solar and SMA.

Tesla And Other Tech Giants Scramble For Lithium As Prices Double

And while lithium has traditionally been controlled by a handful of major global suppliers, spiking demand is changing this landscape drastically.

Lithium-Ion Energy Storage for PV System in Puerto Rico

Li-ion solutions are both scalable and flexible in their power-to-energy ratio. The flexibility enables MTR-type solutions for high-power smoothing, medium-power options for shaping renewable output to meet a forecast, and high-energy systems for shifting of renewable energy to periods of peak load.

Lead Recycling Threatened By Lithium-ion

The U.S. Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) are proposing to develop standardized labels that are color-coded to allow for better identification between lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.

The Potential of Battery Storage Solutions for Domestic and Commercial PV Installations

The developments in battery storage systems being launched to the UK market this year will help to distribute energy more efficiently, and with the PV market in a state of flux following the reductions in the tariff rates, the battery storage developments should provide some stability to the trade.

Electric Car War Sends Lithium Prices Sky High

The lithium oligopoly is already a dinosaur, and new lithium projects on highly prospective land forwarded by companies with lower market caps and strong management are what investors will be looking for.

How Battery Power Sustains Wind-Blown and Sun Struck Grids

Utilities are turning to energy storage systems (ESS) to help power grids withstand the effects of high peak demands, instability and the unpredictability of energy that can be gone with the wind.

Optimising Energy Storage for Renewable Energy Security

Battery energy storage systems (ESSs) are becoming well established to help the grid integration of solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy, particularly in remote and island communities. It is important to understand the different roles that energy storage can play, including controlling ramp rates, smoothing, shaping, peak shaving and frequency regulation.

Liquid Cooled High Power Li-ion Battery System

Using battery systems for peak shaving is highly beneficial; enabling a constant load on the engine ultimately leads to high efficiency and energy saving at the engine level.

Low-Earth Orbit Constellation Satellites Powered by Saft Batteries Take Flight

Saft, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of advanced technology batteries for industry, announces its lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries were on board the eleven new-generation satellites, built by Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), launched on December 21st 2015 by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida for the ORBCOMM (Nasdaq: ORBC) Generation 2 (OG2) constellation, a telecommunication network.

Breakout Year for Energy Storage

Locational Capacity will be the dominant application in 2016. In other words, battery systems targeted at the grid's most congested load centers will be first and foremost used to provide four hours of peak shaving capability, and other grid balancing services when available.

Super Cathode Battery Technology

This Q&A will focus on the incorporation of BioSolar Super Cathode technology with lithium-ion batteries - and how your technology can achieve significantly higher capacity with costs below $100/kWh, which is less than half of today's lowest cost lithium-ion batteries.

German battery maker launches scheme to share solar power

Reporting by Vera Eckert for Reuters:  German battery maker Sonnenbatterie has launched a scheme to connect households with solar panels and other consumers, aiming to better distribute surpluses of the renewable energy and help members to become more independent of conventional suppliers. The start-up company hopes the scheme, called "sonnenCommunity", will boost demand for its batteries which store solar power, allowing owners to use the clean energy even when weather conditions are not favourable. SonnenCommunity takes the storage idea a step further, allowing solar power to be shared among its members. Sonnenbatterie said the scheme would initially target the 1.5 million solar power producers who, if they sign up to the community, will receive a battery storage system with a starting price of 3,599 euros ($3,812). But eventually, the offer will also be open to non-producers, it added. If the idea of battery-powered buildings takes off, it could pose a challenge to traditional utilities such as RWE and E.ON, which still derive the bulk of their power from big centralised power stations running on fossil fuels.   Full Article:
