By Dr Matthias Vetter, Dr Matthias Vetter is head of the department of electrical energy storage at Fraunhofer ISE. He is an electrical engineer of 19 years’ experience, having undertaken his PhD thesis in the field of modelling and development of control strategies for fuel cell systems. Among other topics, his work focuses on autonomous systems and mini-grids, decentralised grid-connected PV battery systems, development of battery systems for stationary and automotive applications; Stephan Lux, Stephan Lux serves as head of the battery modules and systems team at the Fraunhofer ISE in Germany. He received his degree in communication technology from the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg in 1994 and his degree in electrical engineering from the University of Hagen in 2008.

Battery storage | Lithium-ion batteries are becoming a popular choice stationary storage systems but so far lack any consistent standards governing safety and performance. Matthias Vetter and Stephan Lux from Fraunhofer ISE report on two major research projects that could pave the way for new safety standards for li-ion batteries.

Who’d be solar market forecaster? Shifting sands in the two largest global markets coupled with a patchwork of emerging demand, that could as easily deliver several gigawatts as they could nothing at all, make the job a tricky one. A swell of registered projects in China in H1 slowed progress in H2 and there are signs of more of the same in 2017. Beijing based consultant Frank Haugwitz takes a deep dive (p.18) into China’s 13th five-year plan including the real meaning behind its decreased PV targets and the benching of efforts to promote distributed generation.
