Success requires overcoming a myriad of challenges including a shift in preferred battery chemistries, the industry's transition to long-duration storage, time-to-market and cost pressures as well as navigating global supply chain constraints.
The Next Giant Leap for Electric System Reliability: PG&E Proposes Nearly 1,600 MW of New Battery Energy Storage Capacity
If approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), these nine projects would bring PG&E's total battery energy storage system capacity to more than 3,330 MW by 2024.
By deploying a series of low-cost sensors on poles, wires, and more, the company can track parts of the grid that might be at risk for failure. This can help prevent the sorts of catastrophic accidents that could cause devastating wildfires.
Intersolar and Energy Storage North America takes place January 13th - 15th in Long Beach, California. The Exhibit hall floor will be loaded with new products and services. Here is a preview of some things to look forward to at this years event.
Millions of batteries with their hazardous components get dumped in landfills all over the world. Most of these batteries are never properly disposed of and recycled. Battery recycling is the solution to this problem.
One of the most effective ways to dramatically reduce an event's carbon footprint is to look at how it is powered. Thanks to readily available portable systems, there are a range of power solutions that can make major events more sustainable.
U.S. Navy, KIUC, AES, and NREL Innovate and Collaborate for Resilience and Cost-Effective Clean Energy Project on Kauai
Largest 100% Clean Energy Microgrid Within U.S. Department of Defense Supports Island Community, Pacific Missile Range Facility, KIUC, and Hawaii's Ambitious Renewable Energy Goals
For the utility industry, these new robotics could offer significant benefits - and, in some cases, we're already beginning to see how the adoption of robots can make utility work safer and more productive.
As the world transitions to electric vehicles, the race is on to lock down the U.S. domestic supply of this crucial mineral. But the U.S. may be in big trouble in the race to power this green initiative. Our domestic supply chain simply isn't ready.
Ground mount farm with bifacial panels and power optimizers reduces diesel reliance, creates local solar jobs
Energy storage installations around the world will reach a cumulative 358 gigawatts/1,028 gigawatt-hours by the end of 2030, more than twenty times larger than the 17 gigawatts/34 gigawatt-hours online at the end of 2020.
As more communities plan to eventually rely on 100% renewable energy, the researchers offer a strategy that could guide their paths-one that shifts away from long-duration storage.
Electrification is just beginning in many parts of the world. For western countries that have enjoyed electricity for a century, this is hard to imagine, but for 1 billion people, kerosene lamps are their reality.
The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long lasting, and energy dense.
In battery pack manufacturing, the cells are often already assembled and the engineer is challenged with coming up with a design to join them in series and parallel to deliver optimum energy. A typical Li-ion cell is constructed of nickel plated cold rolled steel.
