Hydrogen Could Be Energy Storage Solution

Posted on Sep 4, 2017 1:27:00 PM

The prospect of moving the global energy system to 100% renewables currently seems a distant prospect, with many problems to be solved.

The key may lie in finding a solution to the issue of energy storage, and the answer might be found in the universe's most abundant element – hydrogen.

An Ethical Way to Use Coal in Power Supply

Posted on Mar 28, 2017 2:06:00 PM

This article focuses on innovative ways of storing energy which will have an application in the take up of renewable sources of power like wind and solar.

One of the biggest obstacles in the switch to renewable energy is the problem of storing power from when the wind blows and the sun shines, to use when it is in most demand.

In Germany power grid stabilisation — ensuring electricity supply matches demand — currently relies largely on conventional power plants (nuclear, coal and gas). These can rapidly increase and decrease power output to match demand, but as coal and nuclear plants are closed new solutions are needed

Summarising the Energy Storage Revolution

Posted on Oct 30, 2015 11:36:43 AM

As we close our series on Energy Storage, we recap on the possibilities of energy storage and why it’s taking the cleantech and renewable energy worlds by storm. With its symbiotic relationship with renewables, it holds revolutionary potential to make a significant impact on how much of society operates.

So let's take a minute to go back to this incredibly diverse world of lithium-ion, off-grid power, and utility-scale energy storage!

The Latest & Greatest in Energy Storage

Posted on Oct 27, 2015 8:57:00 AM

Let's start with the reality that many industry insiders are constantly repeating: Over the next five years, the world can expect disruptive shifts in the energy market. We've mentioned in a previous blog the predictions being made about energy storage being as common as broadband internet within 10 years. (Take a moment for that to sink in.)

The major players in this anticipated disruption will include energy storage combined with solar power, as well as the smart devices and energy management technologies that will accompany them. And don't forget the growth of electric vehicles, which stand to benefit greatly from the heightened accessibility of distributed (localised) battery storage.

Energy Storage Policy & the Market

Posted on Oct 22, 2015 10:05:00 AM

Energy storage is a bit different from renewable energy in the fact that it does not yet have a strong track record of supportive policies behind it. But given the demand for storage from both renewable and conventional energy sources alike, it is no surprise that policymakers in certain regions are looking to mandate storage for the perfect sense that it makes.

Here we discuss how energy storage is affected by policy, and where exactly such policies are already being implemented - either by lawmakers or by the energy industry itself.
