New Subsidies For PV-tied Energy Storage Systems

The German Federal Ministry of the Environment recently announced a $67 million budget to subsidise its photovoltaic (PV)-tied energy storage (ESS) for PV systems with under 30kW of generation capacity.

This new incentive will make energy storage technology that can integrate with a PV array cost-effective.

Subsidising the energy capacity of the system rather than its power capacity is a more logical solution because the solar shifting application requires more energy than power. However, lithium-ion batteries will not benefit from the subsidies as much as other storage systems with longer discharge durations, like molten salt and flow batteries.

Product Development: Embracing product safety and compliance

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: EMBRACING PRODUCT SAFETY AND COMPLIANCE Recent safety incidents on storage plants have raised concerns about the fire safety of battery storage systems. Such events are extremely rare compared to the cumulated global deployments of energy storage systems, which have reached more than 27 GWh by end of 2020 (Wood Mackenzie 2021). However, for…

Energy Storage Systems: the role of an Integrator

Simplifying BESS deployments by mastering their associated risks With the introduction of Battery Energy Storage Systems ‘BESS’, a new role has been created on the value chain. It is the role of a BESS integrator. The role of an integrator can be misunderstood at times or blended with other roles at other times. This is…
