Energy Storage for Alaskan Microgrid

The Energy Storage System enables the hybrid wind-diesel power system to achieve its full potential, providing cleaner, more reliable and less expensive power to a remote community of 3,700 people.

How to Beat the Heat (waves)

No matter what the extreme weather situation is, strain on the grid is increasing. In general, it matters less these days to a utility how much energy is needed; more important is when and where energy needs to be distributed.

What's Trending in the Automotive World and How Energy Storage Fits In

Incorporating ultracapacitors with batteries will greatly enable connectivity and autonomous driving features, helping automakers achieve the next level of innovation.

Airports, Microgrids and Resilient Power

Microgrids that combine on-site generation, energy storage, and smart, responsive energy loads, will prove to be an increasingly viable means to address the growing challenges at any airport.

Improved Way to Make III-V Solar Cells Could Hold Key to Lower Costs

Scientists at the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) work to refine the technique called hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE), which holds the potential to produce cheaper, more efficient solar cells capable of producing more electricity.

Why Fast Charging Stations Are Good for the Grid

Fast charging stations on medium voltage grids have unique properties that can play a role in stabilising the grid & absorb large amounts of renewable energy (solar and wind).

How to Design and Install Systems When Code Enforcement Varies So Widely

Even if everyone could agree to a single code edition, there would still be the problem of interpretation. As an inspector, we would joke about if you asked five inspectors for their interpretation of a code section, you would get six answers.

Urban Innovations That Are Making Cities Better

We should all keep in mind that focusing on saving energy, using renewable energy sources, reducing waste and creating a healthier environment is crucial for a better and healthier future!
