The Smart Energy Control introduces greater intelligence to the controlling of energy storage. It can predict load profiles and solar yields, and thus lower yield losses by taking the storage unit off the grid – without accessing data from the Internet.
Global energy storage inverter shipment will grow by 38 percent annually to 4.5 gigawatts in 2020 according to IHS Markit. Prices will fall at an average of 13 percent yearly.
An intelligent power grid with a smart energy management system has been developed and successfully tested on the small Danish island Fur. It integrates heat pumps, photovoltaic systems, batteries and smart-home-installations.
Ferroamp from Sweden presented a clever supply system that works on direct current only. One single inverter balances the connection to the power grid. All consumers, generators and storage batteries are connected via DC converters – within a nanogrid.
UK based developer Camborne Energy Storage will install the first grid scale Tesla Powerpacks in Europe alongside a PV park in Somerset.
Project developer RES (Renewable Energy Systems) has successfully bid in a tender for the construction and operation of a 35 MW battery energy storage system in UK. Over the next four years, the battery energy storage system will deliver part of the frequency response service for the British supply network.
Daimler, The Mobility House, GETEC and REMONDIS are cooperating in a 13MWh battery storage project in Lünen. Over 1,000 used batteries from electric vehicles are combined for a stationary storage unit.
Fraunhofer ISE is working with partners on two research projects in order to further improve and develop guidelines and testing standards for lithium-ion batteries. The main focus is on safety and aging behaviour.
