PARALLEL CHARGING USING MULTIPLE CONTROLLERS WITH SEPARATE PV ARRAYS

Large off-grid and battery backup PV systems, often require greater charging than a single controller can provide. To meet the charging requirements of these large systems, several TriStar™ or TriStar MPPT™ controllers can be connected in parallel to a battery bank. Each controller is connected to its own separate PV array. This document provides answers to frequently asked questions, and tips concerning the operation and setup of these large multiple TriStar and TriStar MPPT controller systems.

SELECTING THE PROPER LEAD-ACID TECHNOLOGY

With so many different battery technologies on the market today, it can be difficult to make sure you’re selecting the right battery for your application. This document will describe the basic types of lead-acid batteries available, and help you understand which one will provide the best performance and value for your needs.

BARRIERS TO MAXIMIZING THE VALUE OF BEHIND-THE-METER DISTRIBUTED ENERGY RESOURCES

The white paper describes opportunities for distributed resources to provide value to the electric grid and the environment, along with program improvements that are needed to encourage customer investment.

ESNA 2018 - GLOBAL GRID TRANSFORMATION

This is a report from the Global Grid Transformation (GGT) conference track at Energy Storage North America (ESNA) 2018, which took place in early November in Pasadena, California. The event brought together key stakeholders from Australia, Europe, and the Americas to exchange ideas, share success stories, and brainstorm on key challenges, with a focus on promoting a low-emission, resilient, and affordable power grid. IHS Markit worked together with ESNA to prepare this white paper, providing a recap of the most important points faced today by the energy storage industry, including how various markets are developing and how stakeholders can identify and target growth opportunities for energy storage.

UNDERSTANDING AND EVALUATING POTENTIAL MODELS FOR THE FUTURE ELECTRIC POWER UTILITY

The frameworks in this slide deck can help those in the power sector understand and analyze key power system design criteria, different constructs for future utility business models, and evaluation criteria for the different utility business model constructs. SEPA developed a set of frameworks to help synthesize the collective insights gathered from Phase III of the 51st State Initiative

RENEWABLE ENERGY STORAGE

Global energy demand is expected to increase by 30 percent between 2018 and 2040, the equivalent of adding another China and India to our planet.1 Renewable energy sources will help meet that demand and will require not one, but a robust mix of energy storage technologies to lower the planet’s carbon footprint, create efficient energy models and stabilize the grid.

ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO RENEWABLE ASSET MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

Dropping investment costs are causing new companies to sprout up every day and lower energy pricing is putting even more pressure on renewable energy asset managers to squeeze every dollar out of their budgets and save their margins. Renewable asset management software can help asset owners and operators grow their portfolios in an increasingly complex environment. This guide will walk readers through the essentials of renewable asset management software including misconceptions about asset management, the benefits of software, and how to recognize when you need it. The guide will also give common renewable asset management scenarios and workflows that can be automated or benefit from an asset management software solution.
