Lithium LiFe stands for lithium iron phosphate, and it's the newest revolution in rechargeable home battery systems. While standard lithium-ion batteries are a big step up from lead-acid batteries, LiFe takes it even further.
Not only does this technology represent an opportunity to hugely reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, but it could also be used to achieve an enormous amount of social good too.
Andy Colthorpe for Energy-Storage News: The requirement of nine hours of energy storage duration at a project touted as a possible replacement for a new natural gas plant in California makes it tough for the newer technology to compete on cost, an analyst has said.
NauticExpo: Developed by Netherlands-based Water2Energy, a vertical axis water turbine (VAWT) with an innovative pitch control system is proving from 30% to 50% more efficient than traditional systems.
Max Bögl Wind AG demonstrates its new power plant and storage concept at the ESNA in California.
Glenn McDonald for Seeker: A California startup is repurposing trains and rail cars to help the storage capacity of renewable energy utilities compete with fossil fuels.
The project will reduce electricity grid demand by an estimated 30 to 35 percent annually at each Home Depot store; the equivalent of powering 2,300 average U.S. homes for a year.
The three main possible applications of the new alkaline battery technology would be consumer electronics, electric cars, and energy storage for the power grid, according to the developers.
Solar Power International 2017 was held from September 10th to 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This AltEnergyMag.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
Annette Choi for VOX: A model predicts the impact of the eclipse on the national solar energy supply will be greatest at 13:40 PM on August 21 while the eclipse is passing over Wyoming.
John Harrington for 247WallStreet: Mazda said in a press release that the engine technology will be up to 30% more efficient than the carmaker's conventional systems. It hopes to have the system ready for 2019 models.
Archimedes once remarked that if given a lever of sufficient length and a fulcrum against which to place it, he could move the world. Musk's first Gigafactory, aptly (if unimaginatively) named 'Gigafactory 1' is a Nevada-based production facility tasked with nothing less than shifting the world toward clean energy.
Fred Lambert for Electrek: German electric car startup Sono Motors unveiled the crowdfunded prototype of its battery and solar-powered vehicle; the Sion.
Sonali Paul for Reuters: One of Australia's leading power suppliers, AGL Energy (AGL.AX), has offered cheap batteries to 1,000 homes with solar panels as part of what it describes as the world's biggest "virtual power plant" in Adelaide, South Australia, a state plagued by blackouts over the past year.
High-performance and flexible multiport power converters will be a key enabling component for solar-plus-storage adoption, and deployment. The power conversion system is critical when implementing solar coupled with storage, as the efficiency of conversion will come into play at several stages throughout the system: PV to grid, PV to battery, and battery to grid.
