Scientists have developed an effective prototype of the solar panels and flow batteries. These devices are much more efficient than the previous design. Experts say about the shortcomings of alternative energy, the main of which is the development of it depends on a huge number of factors and it’s not permanent. Because of this, the solar panels must be connected to the batteries, which store energy during the day, and at night it gives. To solve this problem, scientists have proposed to replace the lithium-ion battery on a split monophonically membrane. Such batteries have many merits, but there are drawbacks, resulting in a loss of charge. Therefore, the American specialists have developed a flow battery that can give up to 14.1% of energy falling on the solar panel.

How to plan for a safer and smarter energy storage market?

Article | February 18, 2020

According to DNV GL’s 2019 Energy Transition Outlook, the combination of storage for the grid and storage available in vehicle-to-grid systems will exceed 40 TWh in 2050 worldwide. Storage and in particular battery solutions will help propel the transition to a decarbonized, electrified energy future. The energy storage market presents a tremendous opportunity for project developers and lenders worldwide. The drivers are clear and global: the rapid electrification of the transport, buildings and manufacturing sectors, the need for smooth integration of variable renewables, whether for a wind farm or industrial solar systems, and financial flexibility for both providers and customers.

ClearVue Solar Glass Greenhouse Officially Opened

Article | February 18, 2020

A high-tech greenhouse comprised mainly of solar glass generating electricity to help run it was officially opened yesterday in Western Australia. ClearVue Technologies Limited’s solar glass involves a nanoparticle interlayer and spectral-selective coating on the rear external surface that enables 70% of natural light to pass through while redirecting infrared and UV light converted to infrared to the edge where it is harvested by solar cells. ClearVue says each 1m2 of its window product is currently rated to generate 30 watts-peak of electric power, but also mentions a new-generation product with the proven ability to generate 40 watts peak per m2 to be available sometime this year.

Electric vehicles could turn solar households into autonomous energy units

Article | February 18, 2020

Many discussions abound on how Australia can reach renewable energy targets of 50 per cent and much more. Many experts believe achieving this goal will depend on the availability of a low cost, bulk energy storage infrastructure. Pumped hydro has received much attention in this regard. While technically feasible, bulk storage still requires transmission and distribution infrastructure that is not only costly but will take considerable time to implement. A far simpler and cost effective route is the bottom-up approach of turning each house into an autonomous energy unit. The use of solar panels in homes and small industry has proven to be remarkably successful.
