The world’s largest battery could soon be storing solar energy deep in the heart of Texas oil country. [...]
Last week when utilities and other energy stakeholders were attending DistribuTECH in New Orleans, LA, a bit farther south, Puerto Rico’s utility PREPA was releasing a draft version of its 2019 integrated resource plan (IRP). [...]
Stanford University researchers have developed a water-based battery that could provide a cheap way to store wind or solar energy generated when the sun is shining and wind is blowing so it can be fed back into the electric grid and be redistributed when demand is high. [...]
Xcel recently released a presentation on battery storage to its battery sub-group meeting. The presentation can be found here: Battery Sub-Group Mtg 3.29.3018_final
The post Xcel Battery Interconnection Process Presentation appeared first on Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association. [...]
AMHERST, Mass. - Materials chemists have been trying for years to make a new type of battery that can store solar or other light-sourced energy in chemical bonds rather than electrons, one that will release the energy on demand as heat instead of electricity-addressing the need for long-term, stable, efficient storage of solar power. [...]
Please join us on this week’s Energy Show for Jeff Brown's candid insights into the factors that are reducing the benefits of rooftop solar — which then are leading to the next phase (spoiler alert: energy storage) of the rooftop solar industry. [...]
A battery made with urea, commonly found in fertilizers and mammal urine, could provide a low-cost way of storing energy produced through solar power or other forms of renewable energy for consumption during off hours.
