Hydrogen-based storage system for residential applications

The system is based on a power-to-gas hydrogen technology and is intended to enable one and two-family homes to have an independent power supply throughout the year.


Maldives launch tender for 40 MW/40 MWh of storage

The government of the archipelago is tendering the deployment of two big batteries, with capacities of 24 MW/24 MWh and 16 MW/16 MWh, respectively, to store renewable energy for 22 islands.

Green Cell unveils off-grid inverters for small residential buildings

Poland-based Green Cell is offering two versions of its new inverter, with power outputs of 1 kW and 3 kW. The inverters feature an efficiency of 90% and are recommended for small buildings such as cottages or year-round homes.


Cathode discovery ‘opens up new pathways’ for calcium-ion storage

Scientists in South Korea tested a new cathode material as part of a calcium-ion battery (CIB), achieving some impressive results. The material retained more than 90% of it initial capacity after 500 cycles, alongside some of the best performance results seen so far for this technology. The scientists say that this discovery opens up “an unexplored pathway toward the realization of stable and high-power cathodes in CIBs.”
