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.
NREL Uses Advanced Grid Research Environment for First-Ever Example of Type-3 Turbines Using Grid-Forming Controls
The rooftop array is comprised of 1,037 solar modules, each paired with SolarEdge Power Optimizers for maximum energy production at the site - despite challenging cold weather conditions typical to Wisconsin.
From Gigafactory to the Farm: Solar-powered robotics company founded by engineering and business leadership from Tesla and MIT
Many researchers claimed that smaller modular reactors (SMRs) are the way to address the existing issue with reactor designs. SMRs are designed to generate up to 300 MW of electric power, and the parts of the reactors can be easily broken down and transported to plants.
While electrifying long-haul truck fleets would bring considerable environmental benefits, it's proven to be a challenging task. Fleets must find ways past these obstacles to embrace sustainability.
Solar-powered Solutions on the Farm: Purdue-affiliated Company Completes Microgrid for Crop Production Facility
Adding solar power with energy storage was the first step in the company's long-term vision of lowering its carbon footprint and using clean energy to power its operation.
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.
In their current state, photovoltaics cannot generate the amount of energy needed to fully power electric vehicles like cars and buses. However, they will augment power needs, making batteries last longer and generating power for features such as air-conditioning.
Green banks will likely play a significant role in transitioning to green energy usage. The ultimate goal is to lower and essentially eliminate carbon emissions from the atmosphere.
The conversion of plastic waste into fuel is beneficial for the global economy and environment. Plastic conversion to fuel has the potential to create almost 40,000 jobs.
Researchers Seek To Lower Cost of Heliostats 50% and Jump-Start Manufacturing in the United States
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.
When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. This includes in-building, containerized, and in-cabinet applications. The Stat-X product was tested for efficacy in putting out Li-ion battery fires. It was found that the Stat-X agent successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program. DNV GL Energy conducted the testing and validated effectiveness of the Stat-X aerosol agent on cell level Li-ion battery fires.
