A lithium-ion battery energy storage system that has been switched on in Rani Bagh, Delhi, will serve multiple applications and could pave the way for adoption of smarter energy networks based on renewable energy across India. The battery system is relatively small by the standards of some of the grid-scale systems that are starting to
If you believe that lithium-ion batteries and pumped hydro are the only viable energy-storage options and that long-duration storage technologies are a long way from commercial reality, think again.For instance, UK start-up Highview Power, a pioneer in liquid-air energy storage, which has begun construction of two 50MW commercial projects in the US (400MWh) and the
Analysis and research firm IHS Markit has predicted that over 10GW of new energy storage will be deployed during this year, with around half of those additions in the US market. The company said in a new report that this would be more than double the 4.5GW of global capacity additions in 2020. Meanwhile the
