Stephen Smiley and Caroline Winter for ABC AU: Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
Peter Kelly-Detwiler for Forbes: The SRUSD will be able to cut energy costs (during some months, as much as 70-80% of the district's electricity needs will be met by the systems).
There are many reasons to purchase a battery system for the home or business, starting with natural disasters, but a battery system, tied into a solar system, will maximize self-consumption of solar power, reduce grid costs, increase the resiliency of electricity, and take a home or business completely off grid with minimal fossil fuels.
Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: The technology would optimize how electricity flows in and out of storage devices such as batteries and points of consumption, in real time. This is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the grid and save consumers money.
Adele Peters for Fast Company: The ability of some residences and businesses to stay functioning as the power went out around them shows the growing potential of local generation and microgrids. Now those batteries just have to get a lot cheaper.
Batteries may degrade gracefully up to a point, then experience "rapid fade" and lose capacity quickly. A system that has been designed to meet a given level of demand will, at some point, be unable to do so.
Barbara Eldredge for Curbed: Indeed, MIT researchers have reinvented firebricks, a Bronze-Age technology created by the Hittites-who occupied what is today Turkey, in the 17th century BC. Firebricks were designed by the Hittites to retain heat for long periods of time, if properly insulated.
ElectrIQ's fully-integrated energy storage and home energy management solution.
Looking at current market demand for renewable electricity documented with Guarantees of Origin in Europe 2017, customer demand is showing impressive signs, with Q2 numbers surging well above comparable figures for 2016, growing a staggering 39%.
As we transition into a greener economy increasingly fueled by hydrogen, fuel cell solutions for backup and power-on-demand are overcoming the significant weaknesses of other clean technologies such as solar and wind.
Solar with Energy Storage Success: Cuttyhunk Island, MA Celebrates Its First Summer Going Majority Solar-Powered
Solar Design Associates of Harvard, Massachusetts, designed and installed this 1,020-panel solar array and a 1 MW energy storage system that have delivered over 50% of the electricity this summer for Cuttyhunk Island, Massachusetts.
We're installing a lot more solar, and we're looking at a variety of opportunities. There are some projects where we will be feeding the energy into the grid. Others will help us offset our carbon footprint.
In conjunction with this rapid growth, the DOE report found that 73% percent of all surveyed employers said they're having difficulty hiring qualified workers across the energy sector. The Solar Decathlon helps address this difficulty by challenging student teams with a real-life, complicated project that provides hands-on training for undergraduate and graduate students.
The General Sessions at SPI expands the emerging possibilities of the solar industry. High-profile speakers bring future awareness of our rapidly evolving business; and the attendees will leave the General Sessions equipped with the key perspectives they will need as they traverse the future of solar.
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.
