Budget 2020: Carbon capture given £800 million boost as renewables sidestepped

By |2020-03-12T09:48:00+00:00March 12th, 2020|Charging, Electric Vehicles, Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation|

Funding boosts for carbon capture and storage (CCS), electric vehicles (EVs) and nuclear announced, as renewables are once again absent from the UK's Budget. Chancellor Rishi Sunak delivered the Budget today (11 March 2020), with pledges for the green economy almost a footnote in the Red Book. CCS is to receive an injection of

Electric Vehicles Could Transform Energy Storage

Apart from driving a clean transportation revolution over the next three decades, electric vehicles (EVs) could help the power grid’s storage needs as growing shares of renewable energy sources—predominantly solar and wind—are being incorporated into electricity grids. Batteries from EVs could have so much more potential energy storage by 2050 that electric cars could

My Journey 3: Big Changes Afoot

SSE Energy Services has become the latest supplier to launch an electric vehicle (EV) tariff, allowing drivers to charge for free. The ‘1 Year Fix and Drive’ tariff is, as the name suggests, a one-year fixed tariff that gives EV drivers up to 2,000 kWh of electricity for free per year, provided they charge their

Battery trends in the PV and EV markets

By |2019-09-30T16:04:15+00:00October 7th, 2019|Battery Storage, Electric Vehicles, News, Opinion, Solar and Battery|

The lithium ion battery market is experiencing growth on all sectors, including consumer and industrial applications, electric vehicles, and stationary energy storage systems (ESS). In fact, there are estimates that the market will double or even triple in size by 2030. This growth is coupled with declining prices, with prices having fallen as much as

Next generation UK battery storage research receives US$68 million boost

A £55 million (US$67.8 million) fund has been earmarked for five projects in the UK looking at developing the next generation of battery storage technology. The government-led Faraday Institution has allocated the funding to five consortium-led projects with the aim of overcoming battery challenges, in particular by improving performance and cost characteristics. The projects will

Large-scale renewables vital to net zero but economy-wide disruption inevitable

By |2019-06-24T17:51:17+00:00June 29th, 2019|Electric Vehicles, Energy and Climate Change, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery, Wind|

Large-scale renewables are the most important factor in decarbonisation of the energy sector, according to a new UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) report. However, rapid, unprecedented changes across the entire UK economy will be required to meet net zero. Disruptive change, defined by UKERC as a significant deviation from past trends in a short timeframe,

ScottishPower seeking battery storage rush to support net zero ambitions

ScottishPower has revealed intentions to make Glasgow the UK’s first ‘net zero’ city, in collaboration with Glasgow City Council. And the utility is also preparing a battery storage rush in a bid to support its renewable energy ambitions. To achieve net zero emissions, the city will need to decarbonise heat and transport, as well as

Second-life EV batteries: The newest value pool in energy storage

By |2019-05-08T16:17:08+00:00May 9th, 2019|Battery Storage, Electric Vehicles, Energy and Climate Change, News, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery|

With continued global growth of electric vehicles (EV), a new opportunity for the power sector is emerging: stationary storage powered by used EV batteries, which could exceed 200 gigawatt-hours by 2030. During the next few decades, the strong uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) will result in the availability of terawatt-hours of batteries that no longer
