Small Power, Big Grid: Part 5

The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System

Microgrids and the Future of Decentralized Power

UL works with industry leaders to develop a new standard for microgrids, blending in-lab product testing with on-site field evaluations.

Small Power, Big Grid, Part 4: DERs AND WHOLESALE MARKETS

The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.

Microinverters from Darfon Solar

With the advent of rapid shutdown, we see a move to more Module Level Power Electronics (MLPE).

Update on Energy Storage in the USA

Faster-responding storage allows us to operate the grid more efficiently, instantly balancing fluctuating supply and dynamic demand.

Integrated Energy Systems

Opportunities for solar installers to offer storage as an integral part of their solutions are opening up everywhere, from mitigating the impact of power outages, the increase in distributed renewable generation at times of low use, the rising costs of base and peak power and the trend of some states to reduce or eliminate net metering programs.

Small Power, Big Grid: Part 3 - DERs AND TRANSMISSION SYSTEM PLANNING

The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.

Repurposing Electric Vehicle Batteries

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.

The Aquion Energy Saltwater Storage Battery

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 Batteries in Cars?

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.

Tesla, Apple and Uber Push Lithium Prices Even Higher

The lithium ion battery market is forecast to expand to $46.2 billion through 2023, which represents an 11% average annual growth rate.

Solutions for E-Mobility Demands

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.

Small Power, Big Grid: Part 2 - DERs AND REGIONAL LOAD FORECASTING

The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.

Using Y Connectors in String Inverter Systems: Part I

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.

Small Power, Big Grid: Part 1

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.
