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.
Achieving Power System Balance
A small utility in Tennessee installed a complete automated power factor balancing system without complex SCADA
Technological Advances for Solar and Energy Storage are Making Energy Solutions More Accessible
The perception of fossil fuels at today's current high prices, paired with an aging utility/grid infrastructure that shuts down more often than any time in recent history, people want and need the energy security.
Stabilizing the Power Grid is Possible as the Energy Transition Continues
We've entered into a time of great change in the energy sector, which means we're finally seeing large-scale plans being enacted on the national level to switch to renewable sources.
The Role of AI in Developing Energy Efficiency
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an emerging tool that may help us engineer better energy efficiency into everything we do. Here are several ways allying with AI improves workflows and profitability.
SolarEdge Combines the Increased Capabilities of UPS Systems With a Renewable Energy Source
Here, Yaron Binder, VP Product Management, describes a new vision in which UPS systems are leveraged to augment grid supply and enable businesses and institutions to meet a wide variety of operational and financial needs.
Utility Technology Already Exists for Preventing Wildfires
By deploying a series of low-cost sensors on poles, wires, and more, the company can track parts of the grid that might be at risk for failure. This can help prevent the sorts of catastrophic accidents that could cause devastating wildfires.
The Benefits of Artificial Intelligence for Energy Companies
Energy companies are seeking opportunities to leverage expanding oceans of data to improve their operations by leveraging the growing proliferation of data borne out of industrial sensors through the IoT, and the seemingly unlimited processing power of the cloud.
How Renewable Energy Could Power 5G for Sustainable Networking
5G networks require less power than their predecessors, meaning powering telecommunications entirely with green and renewable energy is finally an option. How could renewable energy support the 5G network?
SMA Feeds Power to the Grid so New Jersey Food Bank Can Feed Families in Need
Collectively, the solar installation donated to the pantry will relieve an annual electrical bill exceeding $10,500. Going forward, the new 33 KW system will mean those funds can instead be allocated to purchasing food for pantry clients-enough food to prepare 6,360 meals.
BINGHAMTON TEAM TO LEAD $2.6 MILLION RESEARCH INTO SOLAR ENERGY AND POWER GRIDS
The three-year project will focus on advanced grid-forming photovoltaic (PV) inverter control technologies so that the renewable energy source can be more efficiently and reliably integrated with electricity generated by coal, natural gas or other non-renewable methods.
Microsoft Contributes to Grid-Connected Solar Project in Ireland
On September 27, Microsoft announced a new venture towards sustainability in partnership with SSE Airtricity. Focusing their work in Ireland, the two companies are seeking to bring solar power to schools across the country.
Upgrading the Grid to Accommodate Renewable Energy
Despite efforts to lower energy use, the rising population and economic growth are driving global energy demand. To balance global demand with clean energy use, we must invest in projects that enable increased use of energy from renewable resources
How Are Eco-Friendly Transformers Improving Renewable Energy?
The distribution of renewable energy throughout the electric grid requires a new take on transformers, and the solution is here. How can eco-friendly versions improve our clean energy efforts?
How Smart Microgrids Will Change the Way We Consume Energy
Microgrids are smaller-scale versions of standard grids that can branch out to support local areas. When you add clean energy into the mix, you get smart microgrids.

Stat-X® Fire Suppression for Energy Storage Systems and Battery Energy Storage Systems
Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. Our Stat-X condensed aerosol fire extinguishing product was tested for efficacy in suppressing li-ion battery fires. It was found that the product successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program on behalf of a large energy storage company.
