    1. International Battery’s Utility-Scale Li-Ion Goes After Solar

      International Battery’s Utility-Scale Li-Ion Goes After Solar
      "What makes us different is that we develop and manufacture large-format prismatic lithium-ion cells using a water-based manufacturing process. We work with lithium-iron phosphate and lithium cobalt manganese, but we are chemistry agnostic -- we are not an inventor of lithium chemistries." said [former] CEO Almgren.

      Vendors of Small PV Systems are Integrating Storage [Same trend for Grid Storage?]
      Fast disappearing are the days that PV modules can be marketed in isolation of a host of other ancillaries. The ever present pressure on module costs and prices diverts attention to system costs and where other savings can be made. Coupled to fierce competition throughout the supply chain - offering more than just modules for residential, commercial and utility markets - is the new name in the game.

    5. Solar to Power San Francisco Transit Station and EV Charging

      Solar to Power San Francisco Transit Station and EV Charging
      The solar paneling project would provide electricity to the BART station, with output of approximately 750 kilowatt hours; providing enough electricity to run the station as well as to power ample outdoor lighting for the parking area. Additionally, the construction project would provide the infrastructure for electric vehicle power station hook-ups, backers said.

    6. Storage Can Solve Grid Overloading by Rooftop Solar

      Storage Can Solve Grid Overloading by Rooftop Solar
      Mr Hart, who owns EcoSouth Solar Electricity, said ... Solar systems "drop out for a few minutes" when voltages get too high, a phenomenon known as "tripping out" … Then they try to come online again and it pushes the voltage up again and it's very wearing" … The network companies say measures such as retrofits and battery storage can stop the "tripping" but can be costly.

    7. Solar Forecasting Meets Storage

      Solar Forecasting Meets Storage
      If grid operators know the energy potential of solar assets down to 1 minute … you could treat solar energy like a pile of coal, you’ll know how much energy there will be to draw upon, Meagher said. “… some solar projects have energy storage and some have forecasting, but integrating the two is what you want,” Kleissl said. He said that with energy storage … an operator could store and later dispatch solar energy during a predicted period of heavy cloud cover.

    9. Opinion: Solar Thermal in Deserts Consumes Too Much Water (vs PV)

      Opinion: Solar Thermal in Deserts Consumes Too Much Water (vs PV)
      Concentrating solar thermal power has promised big additions to renewable energy production with the additional benefit of energy storage. But with significant water consumption in desert locations, is the energy storage benefit of concentrating solar enough to compete with the dramatically falling cost of solar PV?
