Masdar and the Norwegian multinational energy company Equinor (formerly Statoil) have installed, and will soon begin testing, a new battery system designed to store electricity generated by Hywind Scotland, the world’s first commercial-scale floating wind farm. The battery storage solution is the first in the world to be connected to an offshore wind farm. The…
By Curt R. Ledford, a Nevada-based attorney with McDonald Carano What a ride it has been. Just three years ago, I was walking up to the hearing room of the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada in Las Vegas and was greeted by vocal mob of solar supporters, dozens of news cameras and even one Hollywood […]
Arthur D. Little (ADL) has released a new study, “Future of batteries: Winner takes all?” Based on extensive market analysis, the report examines the current enormous level of activity in the sector, which has seen existing and new players invest over $13.7 billion over the last two years. It predicts future trends that will meet […]

By Philippe Hartley, principal at Clean Financing The challenge in financing energy storage is getting someone else to own it. Cost and availability of financing, in general, are directly tied to risk. The ample amount of capital looking to invest in energy looks for proven and simple. Storage is neither. Utilities’ defensive tariff filings are […]

By John Connell, vice president of Crown Battery’s SLI Products Group Renewable energy systems are a battery torture test, from extreme temperatures to deep discharges. An unreliable, short-lived battery can leave your company, client or home in the dark (literally). That’s why you want every battery benefit you can get. Automation in battery manufacturing eliminates […]

Energy Storage North America (ESNA) issued a call for nominations for the 2018 ESNA Innovation Awards, which are presented annually for innovation, excellence, and impact in energy storage. Key evaluation criteria include project innovation, impact on transforming the storage ecosystem, opening new markets, tapping into multiple value streams, overcoming operational challenges, and increasing reliability, efficiency and […]
Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) announced grant funding has been awarded to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Stanford School of Engineering’s Spormann Laboratory to conduct new power-to-gas and energy storage research. The two entities will receive $800,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). SoCalGas will provide co-funding of $400,000 in addition to $125,000 of seed funding it provided in 2017. The initiative will research the use of […]

Editor’s note: This article comes from Columbia Engineering and is authored by Holly Evarts. Columbia University material scientists used a specialized type of microscopy to observe ions moving in liquid electrolyte. Their findings could lead to improved battery safety and energy storage. Lithium metal batteries hold tremendous promise for next-generation energy storage because the lithium metal […]
