At the excellent Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Conference here in Sindlefingen, Germany, 48V mild hybrids are rightly a strong focus. The consensus is that we are quickly moving beyond the opening shots that can reduce carbon dioxide by up to 14%. These tend to involve belt starter generator BSG, no electric drive modes, PO/1 positioning on engine, 480Wh 48V battery and 12 kV supplied. This was described as little more than an upgraded stop-start albeit with cold start, fast start, quietness and fuel economy.

Energy Storage Industry Leaders Urge Congress to Include Grid Modernization, Resiliency in Infrastructure Deliberations
The U.S. is currently the global leader in advanced energy storage innovation, markets, and investment, spurring more than 50,000 domestic jobs and placing the U.S. at the forefront of the advanced energy industry. In 2016, commercial deployment of energy storage systems grew more than 100% over the previous year and installed system costs plummeted another 30%.

Energy Harvesting Europe Article: Governments, manufacturers and other interested parties agonise about what to do as multiple gigafactories spew out vast numbers of lithium-ion batteries that almost always die before the life of the equipment in which they are placed and they are linked to toxins, fires and other nasties. As the world moves to structural electronics instead of the nostalgic old components-in-a-box designs, the batteries are holding up the party because even solid state ones tend to swell and shrink with each cycle, bursting a smart structure apart.
Dukosi, the battery management technology innovator, and Swindon Silicon Systems, a world leader in the design, test and supply of complex, custom, mixed-signal electronics for automotive and industrial applications, today announced they have signed a strategic agreement to bring Dukosi's disruptive semiconductor chip based battery management solution to market.
David Nield for Science Alert: Construction will soon be underway on a gigantic solar farm in South Australia that's set to be the biggest of its kind in the world - thanks to 3.4 million solar panels and 1.1 million individual batteries. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, at which point the huge plant should outdo all other solar farms in terms of overall battery capacity - although other solar facilities are larger in terms of land area.

Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica: The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory has published a landmark report extensively detailing component and system-level cost breakdowns for residential PV solar systems equipped with energy storage. The decreasing cost of solar systems has been well documented over the last several years, with increased innovation and decreasing manufacturing costs combining to make solar PV a competitive and economic choice for residents and utilities across the United States, and in fact the world. As such, the costs attributed to the development of residential and utility-scale solar projects has been well defined for some time - even though that figure keeps decreasing.
The energy storage market is evolving. Thanks to innovative technologies, batteries and energy storage systems are increasingly able to store large quantities of energy from renewable sources. The potential for storing or distributing power from photovoltaic (PV) systems is far from exhausted, and ever more market opportunities are being created, for example with the help of mobile storage systems.
