      New Battery Management System From Redflow

      Australia-based battery-energy-storage company Redflow revealed a new system at the Australian Energy Storage Exhibition. The system has been created to make battery installation, monitoring, maintenance, and control simpler. With its new system, Redflow customers can track real-time battery performance and monitor data remotely. No software is required. All that is needed is an internet connection, a web browser, or a smartphone. “This BMS is a key part of our vision of providing efficient and effective battery energy storage systems for both homes and businesses. Our BMS is designed to act as a ‘Rosetta stone’ that uses various industry standard protocols to integrate our unique battery technology with energy management electronics from a wide variety of vendors,” said Redflow Executive Chairman Simon Hackett.

      Peter Thiel Loves Energy Storage -- Gawker, Not So Much

      Billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel has been in the news this past week, for reasons that have nothing to do with energy storage and much to do with a certain celebrity wrestler sex tape leading to a spicy First Amendment case aimed at Gawker Media.The Gawker case has practically every media stakeholder on the planet riled up, and all that noise motivated a search of the CleanTechnica archives to see what, if any, of Thiel’s technology investments have crossed our radar. Sure enough, energy storage is one of the few that popped up, as well as some other interesting things.

    3. Investment In Energy Storage Vital For Renewable Energy Success

      Investment In Energy Storage Vital For Renewable Energy Success

      A new report has concluded that investment in energy storage technology is vital for the success of renewable energy and its full integration into the energy sector. According to a new study published by researchers from the University of East Anglia (UAE), government subsidies should be used so as to encourage further investment in energy storage, without which the authors of the report believe renewable energy will struggle to be fully integrated into the energy sector. The inherent variable nature of leading renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar requires energy storage so as to compensate for times when the wind may not be blowing, or the sun may not be shining. Energy storage systems such as reversed hydro power plants, large scale compressed air systems, and battery storage, are quickly being seen to be a vital companion to most, if not all, renewable energy technology installations.

    4. Energy Storage Could Break Low Income Rooftop Solar Bottleneck

      Energy Storage Could Break Low Income Rooftop Solar Bottleneck

      A trio of non-profits has come out with a report that makes a strong case for deploying energy storage plus on-site solar for low-income rental housing in California. The analysis projects that under today’s market conditions, the combo has a quick payback and would whittle electricity bills down to practically nothing. To be clear, the analysis covers the electricity bills of the housing owner, not the tenants. Providing low income renters with the benefits of solar energy storage is a whole other can of worms, but the non-profits do have some suggestions on that score.

      The Palo Alto–based startup ElectrIQ Power will be launching an integrated home energy storage product during Quarter 4 2016 — featuring a 10-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery, a hybrid DC-to-AC inverter, a DC-to-DC converter, an intelligent battery management system, and a high-frequency energy meter. The company has apparently already managed to nab 4,000 preorders for the product. Considering that the all-inclusive 10 kilowatt-hour (kWh) unit will sell wholesale for around $13,000 and retail for about $16,000, that’s a fair chunk of money if all of the orders go through. The system will come with a 10-year, 5,000-cycle warranty, it should be noted.
