      The Long Read: The Dawn of Megastorage

      Last year was record-breaking for global energy storage deployment. The non-residential segment overtook the residential sector for the first time, with half of the 3.3 GW capacity installed in front of the meter, according to market analysts Wood Mackenzie. The drive toward large, utility-scale projects has been the single most noteworthy change for the industry over the last 12 to 18 months, with storage projects now exceeding 100 MW for four-hour durations.

    5. Op-ed: The Future of Cleantech Jobs

      Op-ed: The Future of Cleantech Jobs

      The United States is entering its tenth year of the renewable energy revolution and there’s no slowdown in sight, only more adaptation. Over this time, clean energy jobs have grown 12 times faster than the overall job market, and renewables was one of the very few growth areas during the 2008 recession. The last two years have been no different, with both solar and wind growing at over 20% annually. Compare this to coal which has shed jobs for its fifth consecutive year. At a recent industry conference, a Colorado legislator said that his state is eliminating coal energy at an extraordinary pace—formerly, coal comprised two-thirds of the energy generated, now it is about 50%, and major goals are in place to reduce it to only 25% in a short period.

    6. Fraunhofer Off-grid PV Farming Solutions Without Storage

      Fraunhofer Off-grid PV Farming Solutions Without Storage
      The Fraunhofer energy management system monitors the amount of energy produced and then ensures that it is delivered to the devices that need it most. To illustrate, a submersible pump, which is 105 feet deep, can be powered to fill a reservoir when energy is available and the irrigation pump or desalination unit at other times. Only a relatively small battery is needed to ensure the CPV tracker and measuring system remains powered.
