NPIF Maven Equity Finance (“the Fund”), part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (“NPIF”), and managed by Maven Capital Partners (“Maven”), has invested £750,000 in Lancashire-based Extreme Low Energy (“ELe”), a proven technology platform, which stores and efficiently distributes low voltage DC power, and which targets a number of different sectors. The investment was delivered […]
The technology group Wärtsilä introduces a new hybrid solar PV and storage solution. Wärtsilä Hybrid Solar integrates solar PV generation and storage to deliver a true “renewables as baseload” solution that is not only climate-friendly, increases resilience and efficiencies but can be supported by a power producer’s existing grid infrastructure. Hybrid Solar will allow utilities […]
On Monday, June 4, 2018, a ground-breaking ceremony paved the way for the start of construction works of a 10 MW battery storage project in the North German municipality Bordesholm. RES Deutschland GmbH is building the project for the utility VBB. The battery storage will provide grid stabilisation and back-up power – fed from 100% […]
Vattenfall’s battery@pyc, the largest co-located battery installation in the United Kingdom, is now operational and stores renewable wind power from Vattenfall’s Welsh onshore wind farm Pen y Cymoedd. It thereby helps to provide reliability service to UK National Grid. The 22MW facility, which shares electrical infrastructure with the Pen y Cymoedd wind farm, will help […]
Solar and Wind dominate power generation capacity additions as projections for investment reach $2.20 Trillion by 2021.
Frost & Sullivan finds declining capital cost of solar and wind, rise in battery energy storage adoption, disruptive start-ups contributing to competition, and increases in mergers and acquisitions will drive growth opportunities. Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis Global Power Industry Outlook, 2018 reveals that a combination of factors led by renewables is set to transform the […]
Acciona Energia, the biggest global operator exclusively in renewable energies, today received the first ever prototype certificate for a grid-scale energy storage solution by DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body. The handover of the certificate took place at the American Wind Energy Association’s 2018 Windpower Conference in Chicago. […]
Stanford 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. The prototype manganese-hydrogen battery, reported today in Nature Energy, […]
Ørsted, one of the dominating companies in the European wind industry, has announced plans to enter the commercial battery storage market with its first large-scale project near Liverpool. The Danish energy giant said today it will build and operate a 20MW battery in England’s North West, which will provide balancing services to National Grid. The […]
BP Wind Energy, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Rolling Thunder I Power Partners LLC, has signed a purchase agreement to install a high-storage battery at its Titan 1 Wind Farm in South Dakota. The project is the first of its kind in BP’s U.S. operated wind business and a potential step forward in the performance and […]
Bay State Wind and NEC Energy Solutions to develop the world’s largest wind-paired energy storage system for commercial-scale energy.
Bay State Wind has signed a letter of intent (LOI) to collaborate with NEC Energy Solutions to develop an energy storage system for its 800MW wind/55MW – 110MWh energy storage combined project, which will be located in Massachusetts, US. The project is expected to be the world’s largest wind-paired energy storage system for commercial-scale energy. […]
