Energy storage: IBESA publishes expert interviews on battery safety; Unsafe systems are often a result of inadequate cells

2014-11-14 |

Battery safety plays an important role in the field of energy storage. This is why the international competence network International Battery & Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) is committed to the issue of battery safety and has therefore spoken to distinguished experts about appropriate safety measures. To get a clear overall picture on the topic of battery safety IBESA interviewed experts in the field of cell and battery manufacturing, as well as electrochemists and cell specialists on their opinion and strategic recommendation on energy storage safety. They all seem to agree that entirely safe or non-flammable li-ion cells do not exist. However, it is necessary to ensure the highest level of safety possible. Read more...

2013 review: Solar goes east - Growing global PV markets expected in 2014

2014-01-09 |

After the upsetting experiences of 2012, 2013 was a much better year for the global solar industry. 2012 started with a trade war raging on three continents and collapsing PV prices across the value chain, which continually pushed more companies to bankruptcy. In 2013 all this changed. There has been a conclusion to the trade dispute between the EU and China, and if it is not entirely satisfactory to ever stakeholder, it at least has returned a degree of stability and predictability to the industry. PV prices across the value chain stopped their collapse, in some cases rebounding by the end of the year, leading to margin recovery. Read more...

Why energy storage is cost-effective and also in need of a clear market signal

2013-09-17 |

California's electricity system has reached a transforming regulatory milestone. On September 3, Commissioner Carla Peterman of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) authored a proposed decision ordering a 1.325 GW utility energy storage procurement target for California's electric grid by 2020, if viable and cost-effective. The CPUC is expected to decide on a final number for the target in the coming months. But many have seen the “cost-effectiveness” part of the equation with curiosity: “if cost-effectiveness is a requirement,” they ask, “why are procurement targets necessary?” It's a sensible question - and the CPUC’s conclusions show that specific targets are key to getting much-needed storage solutions onto the grid.
