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

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.

The Future of Bio-Inspired Batteries

A major advantage that bio-inspired batteries have as compared to other batteries is their ability to allow an instant recharge.

Alternative Energy Project Financing

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.

Special News Report for Solar Power International 2016

New product announcements and news from SPI 2016. Post your company news or read about what others are doing at the show.

Batteries Get a Boost From California Utilities

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.

Energy Storage North America Announces Innovation Award Finalists

Winners for each category will be determined by the ESNA Advisory Board (50%) as well as public voting (50%).

Could A Lithium Shortage De-Rail The Electric Car Boom?

Lithium has the purest of fundamentals of any 'commodity' out there, and the next oil barons look set to actually be lithium barons. - Special Tradeshow Coverage of Solar Power International 2016

Solar Power International 2016 will take place from September 12th to 15th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.

Why Lithium Will See Another Price Spike This Fall

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.

Using Silicon in Lithium Ion Batteries to Increase Capacity

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.

Super Battery Technology

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.

Are Microgrids Catching On?

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.
