An independent trial compared 18 batteries in lab conditions, and not all survived. If you've got solar panels on your home, or you're considering getting them, then you're probably wondering if you should get a storage battery as well – and if so, which one is best? An independent trial of 18 solar power batteries

‘Little evidence’ government has confronted scale of net zero

There is still ‘little evidence’ that the UK government has confronted the enormous scale of reaching net zero, according to a new report by the Institute for Government. It warns that meeting the challenge of decarbonisation is more challenging than responding to the COVID-19 pandemic or getting Brexit done, as it will require transformations of

Future energy predictions: Growth of flexibility and grid forming

[I found this article very insightful and I agree with most of his points - it's well worth a read. Trevor] With the US presidential election campaigning in full flow, news and social media has descended into the depressing blue team versus red team idiocy that experience tells us leads nowhere. The supporters of

Using data to build fossil fuel-free buildings

By |2020-09-12T10:40:58+00:00September 19th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery|

The impact of fossil fuels on the environment is pushing architects and engineers to make buildings greener — and, when possible, fossil fuel-free. Hundreds of design decisions can impact a building's energy efficiency, making fossil-fuel-free structures more or less workable. Multilayered window designs can trap heat, making climate control systems more efficient. Advanced appliances can

The weekend read: European storage – Start of a new growth phase?

By |2020-09-12T10:38:45+00:00September 18th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery|

In general, the tale of photovoltaics in Europe has been a success story, albeit one not completely devoid of obstacles and hurdles. The idea of producing clean energy was pushed by tailwinds when CO2 emissions skyrocketed and the catastrophic Fukushima incident once more made us recognize the hazards of nuclear energy. However, the PV industry

Tips and tricks to select the ideal energy storage system

By |2020-09-12T10:36:32+00:00September 17th, 2020|Battery Storage, Energy and Climate Change, Home Battery, News, Solar and Battery|

Given the increasing concerns about global warming and environmental impacts of burning fossil fuels, policymakers pay more attention to energy storage solutions than ever before. Apart from having the ability to address the intermittent supply of renewable energy, energy storage assets can also offer a multitude of uses consisting of frequency regulation and ancillary service

Climate change: Power companies ‘hindering’ move to green energy

By |2020-09-12T10:32:10+00:00September 16th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery|

New research suggests that power companies are dragging their feet when it comes to embracing green energy sources such as wind and solar. Only one in 10 energy suppliers globally has prioritised renewables over fossil fuels, the study finds. Even those that are spending on greener energy are continuing to invest in carbon heavy coal

Tesla seeks EV lead with energy market push
