Phazr is a small battery pack that pairs with a single solar panel forming a highly scalable solar plus energy storage system.
The new battery provides an additional option for researchers, particularly in the area of stationary storage.
Renewable energy insurance provider Lycetts provide an independent and in-depth analysis of the future state of EU renewables; read on to find out more about its future after Brexit.
Mike Wehner for BGR: Energy storage degradation in rechargeable batteries is a pretty serious problem that many of us put up with on a regular basis. It’s why your iPhone seems to last forever when it’s brand new out of the box but seems like it dies by lunchtime after a couple of years of use. Now, researchers at Harvard have developed a new battery technology using a bit of chemistry magic to create a rechargeable power source that could be tapped for many years with very little in the way of maintenance.

Key themes and takeaways from the 2017 Distributech conference
Zhong Lin Wang for Nature: Nature provides three sources of energy for free: sunlight, air and gravity. Solar and wind power are increasingly exploited, gravity less so. Hydraulic power plants harvest energy from flowing rivers. Tidal energy can be gathered along some inlets and coasts. But few places are suitable for dams or barrages, which can also damage the environment. By contrast, oceans cover about 70% of Earth’s surface. Wave energy is plentiful day and night, whatever the weather. Capturing it requires little land and raises few safety or security concerns. Yet hardly any of this ‘blue energy’ is being generated. Today’s wave farms produce no more than 1–10 megawatts at any one time, enough to power a town. No commercial wave farms currently exist. Full article:
Smart meter deployments are the most common smart grid (or smart utility) activity. Utilities are also adding sensors into their networks to better understand operating conditions.
Developing, scaling and manufacturing new energy storage technologies is a costly and challenging process. That pathway has been made simpler and more straight-forward, thanks to a fast- growing "Energy Sector" located at Kodaks Eastman Business Park, Rochester, NY.
Mark Gilbert for Bloomberg: The U.K. government is mulling whether to support a 1.3 billion pound ($1.6 billion) proposal to build a tidal lagoon in South Wales. It should stop dithering and subsidize the project to help meet the country's green energy goals, produce cheaper power, and establish Britain as the world leader in technology that harnesses the power of the tides to generate electricity. The U.K. lost its energy independence in 2004, and now depends upon imports to meet about half of its energy needs. And while the contribution from renewable energy sources has climbed to a bit less than 10 percent from about 1 percent at the start of the last decade, the U.K. commitment to reduce carbon emissions to 57 percent of their 1990 levels by 2030 means even less electricity needs to come from coal-fired power plants.

Ultimately, useable large-scale renewables require useable large-scale storage. Highview has developed Liquid Air Energy Storage as a cost effective solution to high-power, long-duration storage that is geographically locatable to where it is needed, and cost-competitive.
Unlike most rooftop systems, the 37kW array has been installed on the side of the building - a "solar wall" that will optimize the facilitys clean energy production and save money for critical community healthcare services.
Similar to the S&P 500 Index, the Solar Stock Index is a market cap weighted composite index.
