Power purchase agreements (PPAs) have been signed between First Solar and two community energy utility groups for energy from a 100MW solar power plant with 50MWh of energy storage in California’s Kern County.
Liam Stoker and Andy Colthorpe reflect on the biggest news in energy storage this year, while also gazing into their crystal balls and predicting what the energy transition may hold in store for the year ahead.
Solar Media's Liam Stoker and Andy Colthorpe are back for episode three of the Solar Media Podcast, discussing what's necessary for economies to reach net zero status - and, crucially, when that can be reached - while also taking a look at the recent spate of technology partnerships in the power sector. Meanwhile, Andy looks back at what's been a bumper month for energy storage developments worldwide.
Recent moves in California to develop large-scale energy storage with four hours’ storage duration are just the beginning of a move towards using batteries as a capacity resource, the president of flow battery company CellCube has said.
The CEO of Orsted, the world’s largest offshore wind developer, has said that his company is working to establish “a scalable commercial model” for solar PV and energy storage, viewing both as potential drivers of long-term growth.
