The Zinc-ion Battery's Role in the Energy Storage Industry

Lithium-ion batteries are the only technology that can meet the performance requirements for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. However, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is rising far quicker than investments in the raw materials required to produce them.

New Survey Finds More Countries Turning to Macro Grids to Enable Energy Transition

A global survey of Macro Grids conducted by Iowa State University shows countries around the world are scaling up their electric grids in order to tap low-cost domestic and foreign renewable resources, grow their economies, and strengthen security

U.S. Residential Storage: A Glimpse at the Market and the Q.HOME+ ESS

At the time of this article's publication, residential storage had its strongest quarter ever in Q2 2020 with 48.7 MW/112.2 MWh deployed in the U.S. There are multiple incentives that drive homeowners to add storage to their homes in the U.S.

How Transformers Assist With Renewable Energy Grid Integration

While renewables are often more affordable than fossil fuels, they're not always as accessible. That's mostly an issue with how the grid handles renewable energy, and better transformers can improve the grid.

Microsoft Contributes to Grid-Connected Solar Project in Ireland

On September 27, Microsoft announced a new venture towards sustainability in partnership with SSE Airtricity. Focusing their work in Ireland, the two companies are seeking to bring solar power to schools across the country.

Calculating Battery Backup & Storage in Residential Solar

Using software for PV system design will reduce time spent and costs for each project. What sets Aurora apart from other software tools are our accuracy, pioneering technology, experience, and our awesome customer success team.

Why This Overlooked Li-Ion Battery Component is So Crucial

Nickel's major advantage in battery applications is that it delivers a higher energy density and greater storage capacity at a lower cost than other metals. In li-ion battery production, there are two types of cathode chemistries dependent on this material.

Nobel Prize Winning Inventor of the Lithium-ion Battery Has His Eyes Set on the Next Big Breakthrough in Energy Storage

While heading the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory at Oxford University nearly 40 years ago, he discovered the feasibility of lithium cobalt oxide as a cathode material, which enabled the commercialization of the first rechargeable lithium-ion battery by the Sony Corporation.

Fuel Cell Companies Expanding Reach with New Products and Broader Vision

As we celebrate National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on October 8th, it seems appropriate to take a look back over some of the new products introduced over the last year that have helped enforce the impact and potential fuel cell and hydrogen technologies can make on the world.

Solar Power International Trade Show 2020

The virtual micro-conferences will be live and on-demand. They will cover Regulatory Innovation and Policy Drivers, Renewable Energy Finance and Development, Asset Management and Managing Growth, Deploying Energy Storage, Grid Integration, and the EV Connection.

Energy Transition: Total Is Investing More Than €500 Million to Convert Its Grandpuits Refinery Into a Zero-crude Platform for Biofuels and Bioplastics

Of the 400 jobs at the Grandpuits platform and its associated Gargenville (Yvelines) depot today, 250 will be maintained after the conversion. Furthermore, 15 additional jobs will be created on the Grandpuits site in a packaging unit connected to the bioplastics unit.

Renewable Energy for Wildfire Management

As the climate crisis gets worse, so do wildfires. These fires occur in instances of drought and increased temperatures - two consequences of global warming. Therefore, the climate crisis increases the frequency, severity and intensity of these fires.

Octillion partners with Orison to create an energy storage system that can be installed at home

New energy storage system estimated to be less than a quarter of the cost of most battery storage units and weighs nearly 70 percent less.

What Is Preventing Some Countries From Making the Switch to 100% Renewables?

The most stubborn barrier is the cost of installation. Renewables are designed for simplicity, meaning solar panels and wind turbines are relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain, the initial price of the equipment to power companies and homeowners is not insurmountable.

Priming the Pump: Recent Design Breakthrough Can Spur Advances in Solar-Driven Lasers

Scientists in Japan develop a fully planar device that converts sunlight into a laser beam, which can efficiently power hydrogen fuel generators.

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
