Effective operations and monitoring of distributed energy resources

Large-scale DER installations are undoubtedly a positive addition to the energy network, but their integration and management is more complex than that of individual, smaller scale DERs.

Solar EV Charging to Bypass the Grid: A US$2.5 Billion Market by 2034, Says IDTechEx

The South African utility grid is subject to frequent load-shedding, periods when demand exceeds supply, and utility operators are forced to impose rolling black or brownouts of up to 50% capacity.

Puerto Rico Can Reach Its 100% Renewable Energy Goal by 2050

NREL Led PR100 Study That Modeled Possible Scenarios Built on Stakeholder Priorities of Energy Affordability, Resilience and Reliability, Land Use, and Economic Benefits

Mini-grid for extended family - NZ Homestead gets private power

The power supply at Tim and Fiona's homestead in Auckland, New Zealand is distributed from a micro grid which serves their extended family of eight, across three tiny homes, the main residence, and large workshop.

What's in store for the electric grid this winter?

While the forecast for record cold creates potential for further strain on an already vulnerable electric grid, this past summer has shown that renewables and battery storage can be leaned on to stabilize the grid.

The Role of HVDC in the Energy Transition

HVDC is a transmission system that uses direct current (DC) for the transfer of power over long distances. As remote offshore windfarms and the grid are often far apart, HVDC enables effective transmission due to its uniform current density throughout the line.

Is it make or break time for the UK's energy transformation?

Could the lagging investment in the energy grid be one of the greatest problems facing the UK's infrastructure today? Suzanna Lashford from Vattenfall Networks shares her thoughts.

Three Reasons to Avoid Self-Integration of Battery-based Energy Storage Systems

In our latest blog, our experts share some valuable insights on why avoiding self-integration of battery-based energy storage systems is the best approach for long-term success.

Shungnak, Alaska Microgrid Offsets Costly Diesel for the Village

The solar and energy storage system offset the fuel consumption of the diesel generators, reducing sound and carbon pollution and lowering the overall cost of energy for the community.

China's Largest Stand-alone Energy Storage Station with Hithium LFP Battery Inside has Gone Live

This project is a great example of finding the best available technology at the best value, in order to answer the technical challenges the grid is faced with when delivering a net zero energy sector.

Solar Integrators and Utilities Need to Work in Tandem to Improve Grid Stability

By connecting renewable generation to smart energy storage systems that are swarm controlled as part of a VPP, we can enable the next step in grid intelligence and help support the energy transition.

Determine Primary Side of Transformer in Solar PV Applications

In the PV/Solar grid-tie applications the primary side of transformer is often incorrectly identified as the side connected to the solar inverter. In practice; the transformer will initially be energized from the side tied to the facility/utility grid.

Landmark Demonstration Shows How Common Wind Turbine Can Provide Fundamental Grid Stability

NREL Uses Advanced Grid Research Environment for First-Ever Example of Type-3 Turbines Using Grid-Forming Controls

NREL Researchers Point Toward Energy Efficiency Instead of Long-Term Storage

As more communities plan to eventually rely on 100% renewable energy, the researchers offer a strategy that could guide their paths-one that shifts away from long-duration storage.

Building Grid Flexibility With Energy Storage

A 30.8 MWh energy storage system (ESS) is under construction for the French transmission grid operator RTE. The site is one of three being established under the RINGO project, which will test large-scale batteries as a way to relieve congestion on the transmission grid.
