Largest solar installation in the territory part of utility's plan to tackle rising energy costs for island residents and businesses
Simon Hobday, Partner at Pinsent Masons and Advisory Board Member for POWER-GEN Europe considers the complex factors shaping the evolution of Europe's power markets and the operational and commercial impacts seen so far
Integration of Europe's energy systems must continue if grid stability is to be sustained, writes Dr. Franco Rosatelli* of Ansaldo Energia, ahead of the POWER-GEN Europe 2014 event being held in Cologne
With deregulation and privatisation driving the separation of generation, transmission and distribution, Philippe Paelinck, Vice President Portfolio & Strategic Positioning at Alstom, examines EU goals on energy security and unification and how these have played out in Germany thus far.
The age-old challenge of finding a balance between affordable, clean and reliable electricity has become ever more acute for the European power sector in recent years. Only now, however, are the costs and strategic implications of meeting this challenge becoming apparent.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
