“The stone age came to an end, not for lack of stones, and the oil age will end, but not for lack of oil” (Sheikh Yamani OPEC co-founder and former Saudi Arabian oil minister) Electricity companies around the world will begin to go bankrupt by 2018, even while they generate profits. It sounds absurd doesn’t
Building the world’s largest factory to accelerate a sustainable energy future.
Watch Model S and Powerwall owner Clint outline the benefits of combining the Tesla Powerwall with solar and integrated software aggregation for control, savings and a change towards a more sustainable future.
Blink and you missed the announcement. But last Friday, the UK’s much criticised energy supply grid system entered what is being seen as a “new era” with the announcement that eight large battery systems are being built to cope with the growing influx of wind and solar power. The deal – the largest of its
Less than six months after Australia received its first shipment of Tesla Powerwalls, plans for what could be the world’s first “Tesla town” – a mini-suburb on the outskirts of the Melbourne CBD whose new-build homes will include rooftop solar and Tesla battery storage as standard design features – are being unveiled by local property
Eight new battery storage projects are to be built around the UK after winning contracts worth £66m to help National Grid keep power supplies stable as more wind and solar farms are built. EDF Energy, E.On and Vattenfall were among the successful companies chosen to build new lithium-ion batteries with a combined capacity of 200
The electric vehicle market is set to grow quickly, but so far there has been no consensus on the ‘second-life’ of the used EV batteries. In this report, senior analyst Claire Curry has compiled the first data and shows that low-cost energy storage could be here sooner than previously thought. She projects: There will be
Nuclear energy’s cost, and a focus on alternative technology, including research on a new generation of hi-tech battery storage, is leading observers outside the green lobby to question the project’s value Should Theresa May take the axe to the troubled Hinkley Point nuclear project, it will propel wind and solar power further into the limelight.
Kreisel Electric, which is building a new battery facility “3K One” in Austria, announced a new home energy storage solution – the MAVERO. The Kreisel MAVERO is to be available from 2017 in four versions (each under €700/kWh *pre-tax): 8 kWh / 4.8 kW / €5.590 11 kWh / 4.8 kW / €7.530 16 kWh
The UK could adopt solar, electric vehicles and batteries much faster than expected just a year ago, according to the National Grid. The new outlook is part of a rapidly changing landscape for the UK energy system, laid out in the 2016 Future Energy Scenarios. Marcus Stewart, National Grid’s head of energy insights, says in
