European pilot line for innovative photovoltaic technology based on tandem solar cells

PEPPERONI, a four-year Research and Innovation project co-funded under Horizon Europe and jointly coordinated by Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and Qcells, will support Europe in reaching its renewable energy target of climate neutrality by 2050.

The Only Battery That Can Survive a Bullet? Nanotech Energy Shoots for Unprecedented Safety Performance

A Nanotech Graphene-Powered Lithium-Ion Battery 18650 cell was shot by a 4.5BRA bullet at a speed of 2,917 feet per second. Despite the ferocious force of impact, the battery did not catch fire and even still held a charge.

Technological Advances for Solar and Energy Storage are Making Energy Solutions More Accessible

The perception of fossil fuels at today's current high prices, paired with an aging utility/grid infrastructure that shuts down more often than any time in recent history, people want and need the energy security.

Making Home Energy Storage Scalable & Versatile

As independent building blocks, the system can scale both power output and energy storage capacity independently, allowing for multiple use cases that can serve customers more effectively based on their individual needs.

Solar Integrators and Utilities Need to Work in Tandem to Improve Grid Stability

By connecting renewable generation to smart energy storage systems that are swarm controlled as part of a VPP, we can enable the next step in grid intelligence and help support the energy transition.

How Energy Storage Can Solve Southern Europe's Grid Flexibility Challenge

The European Union earlier this year committed to boosting its 2030 renewable energy target to 45 percent under the REPowerEU package, a game-changing ambition that will bring with it a next wave of clean energy installations.

Off-grid Battery Storage and Generator Application

We hear it all the time: there can only be one grid-forming resource type online at a time, right? Well, we have busted this myth many times at some of our solar+storage+generator microgrid projects.

Solarplaza Summit Energy Storage The Netherlands 2023

Join Solarplaza Summit Energy Storage The Netherlands on 16 February in Amsterdam, the leading storage event in the Netherlands. You will connect with local & European players from both the energy storage field and the PV and wind industries. This event will empower you to take charge of and integrate your ambitions in the Dutch market. In 2021, 33% of the electricity production in the Netherlands came from renewable energies, a 22% increase since 2020. This influx of renewables into the national power grid has surpassed the speed with which the grid can sustain this growth. Power grid congestion and energy curtailments are realities of our energy management and storage is the leading solution to help mitigate these challenges. This energy storage summit will ensure developers and manufacturers have a full picture of the current market as well as an update on regulations in the Netherlands, and much more.
