Hydrogen captured as a byproduct of polysilicon production

A Norwegian chemical company has received funding from a state-owned innovation hub to develop technology which enables the capture of hydrogen as a byproduct of the company’s silicon production.

Toshiba and Siemens Energy pledge to walk away from coal-fired power business

The Japanese tech giant and German power company have followed the lead of General Electric by promising not to take on any new coal power station contracts.

Saft opens 480 MWh battery manufacturing hub in China

The company is answering the growing demand for storage systems in virtually all markets. China itself is on a steep trajectory to increase its deployment rate.

Europe a storage policy laggard according to Wood Mackenzie

A few years ago, Europe led the pack in terms of storage deployment but it will soon be overtaken by the U.S. and China, according to Wood Mackenzie analysts, largely because of different policy approaches either side of the Atlantic.

Finnish brewery to deploy 20 MW battery and virtual power plant

A number of partners are involved in a project which aims to bring down the energy consumption and carbon emissions of a beer company site using smart algorithms.

The UK’s biggest balancing act

The nation’s electricity system operator said it wanted more energy storage facilities and to procure new stability products following a big power outage last year. Some 12 months on, the country’s biggest battery storage company has rolled up its sleeves to take on a new role.

A virtual-oscillator-based control strategy for microgrids

Researchers have modeled how the combination of a virtual oscillator control mechanism and a cascaded sliding mode control can help regulate voltage and frequency in a distributed-solar microgrid.

European islands make decarbonization pledges

Often dependent on fuel imports from the mainland and frequently powered by fossil fuels, islands have taken center stage at an online forum which builds on a political process kicked-off by Croatia’s presidency of the European Council.

Thermodynamics-inspired model for microgrid feasibility

Researchers in the U.S. have deployed a phase model, inspired by thermodynamics, to total system costs and technology choices of power grids. Doing so allowed the group to make assumptions for when all renewables powered microgrids become the most economically viable option.

The issues with lithium-ion battery recycling – and how to fix them

Design-for-recycling is not perceived to be high up the list of priorities for battery manufacturers but solutions do exist. Lithium-ion device recycling is technically feasible but requires an improvement in its business case to take off.
