By: Craig Lewis, executive director of the Clean Coalition Can solar+storage replace gas? A battle has been brewing in California over this question, with recent analyses suggesting that the answer is, technically, yes. What’s more, solar+storage facilities can be deployed more quickly than gas plants, at a significantly lower price. Today’s reality is that renewable […]
Since the invention of the potter’s wheel, flywheels have helped smooth the flow of energy in machines. Over time, more modern devices have found their way into some buses, trains, cranes, and automobiles, typically in the form of regenerative braking. In these cases otherwise wasted energy, say from a vehicle decelerating or stopping, is captured […]
XetaWave, a Colorado‐based wireless technology provider, has announced the release of XetaPAK, an advanced, long lasting smart battery that represents an entirely new approach for batteries used in remote telemetry sites. Telemetry is an automated communications process whereby measurements and other data are collected remotely and transmitted for monitoring. As a drop‐in replacement for 12 AH, 24 AH, […]
The fossil fuels that enabled the jet age due to their considerable energy density may soon be yielding to electric aircraft for the same reason.
The Flex solution is a versatile, standardized energy storage platform for utility, commercial and industrial users.
Eos is the first company to accept orders below $100 per usable kWh for a complete dc battery energy storage system including battery modules.
Renewable Energy Systems (RES) will use SMA’s power-conversion system for a 1-MW battery pilot project at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) — a premier wind-energy technology research facility. Using the proven RESolve energy storage system, the project will test various components of energy storage and educate […]
