Rules around Extended Performance Tests for BESS assets in the Capacity Market look like they are here to stay. Jamie Stewart describes the options available for project owners.
The PV and battery storage industry in Southeast Asia has come a long way in the past decade. Ragna Schmidt-Haupt outlines the 5 factors for success, the newest of which has the potential to become the next big thing, and not only in Southeast Asia
Having changed country, company and technology, Dougal McQueen shares his thoughts on the rapid deployment of Battery Energy Storage Systems into legacy power systems
Many technologies claim to be cheaper than Li-ion and thus better suited to long duration energy storage, but each has it’s own drawbacks and challenges. David Thomason looks into some of the challengers
While Li-ion battery fires are a real risk, this risk is manageable as we learn more about the fires themselves and develop more bespoke battery engineering solutions, Jamie Shaw-Stewart explains.
Is local manufacturing of Li-ion batteries desirable or even necessary? Jamie Shaw-Stewart explores some technical and geopolitical issues around it
There are further reforms in the works to fully unlock flexibility potential in our homes. Let’s pause, take a moment and indulge in some imagineering with Nithin Rajavelu
In his previous blog, Benjamin Lock wrote about how energy efficiency can help avoid distribution network constraints, and why this unglamorous yet effective technology deserves more attention. Now it’s time to get a bit more specific. How much is domestic energy efficiency actually worth? And how do we unlock its potential?
Felicity Jones shares some surprising results from a recent domestic demand response trial, featuring optimisation from batteries, solar, heat & EV-charging. A great collaboration with GEO (Green Energy Options), EDF, UK Power Networks, KrakenFlex (formerly Upside Energy), HACT and Cambridge Energy Group.
