How can energy storage integrate renewables into our power grid?

One emerging advancement in the clean energy sector is energy storage – particularly as it applies to storing renewable energy on the electric grid. The energy from renewable fuel sources can be stored at any point in the electric distribution system – at power stations, along transmission, lines, and near customers. Energy storage holds many potential benefits: – It could optimize the availability of renewable energy, which is naturally intermittent; – Stored energy could alleviate energy shortages and blackouts as back-up fuel supply; – Power from energy storage systems can be dispatched more quickly than from gas-powered combustion turbines,...

Floatovoltaics – A solution for water and energy conservation?

Japan’s Kyocera and Century Tokyo Leasing Corporation just started construction on its long planned 13.7 MW floating solar installation on the Yamakura Dam reservoir – the largest floating solar installation in the world. However, floating solar panel installations (also called “floatovoltaics”) have also propped up in the U.S in the past five years. “Floatovoltaics” are floating photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, which are convenient to install in areas with limited land availability. The cost of leasing water for solar installations is lower than that of land. Therefore, floatovoltaic systems are ideal for dams, reservoirs, and water utilities that are high...
