Lebanon is reportedly issued a call for developers to build a series of battery energy storage systems in the country as part of a solar power project.
The Lebanese Centre for Energy Conservation (LCEC) has called for expressions of interest to develop 300MW of grid-connected photovoltaic projects with battery storage.
Proposals that pave the way for a battery storage facility of up to 20MWh to be built alongside a solar farm in Western Australia have taken a step forward.
Australian firm Carnegie Clean Energy has been given the go-ahead to negotiate a lease to build the battery and a solar plant of up to 100MW at the site, 26km southwest of Kalgoorlie.
Plans to invest $200 million in a lithium-ion storage facility in the US hang in the balance in a row over ‘price protectionism’ and the use of renewable energy to charge the batteries.
Franklin Energy Storage Projects has said the proposed Idaho facility— which would include four 25MW battery storage units— qualifies for a 20-year contract under a federal law promoting alternative energy.
New Jersey energy utility PSE&G has installed a 250kW/1MWh Eos Aurora battery system, using zinc hybrid cathode technology, for a solar microgrid project.
The zinc hybrid battery system, developed by US firm Eos Energy Storage, has been deployed at a wastewater treatment plant— to act as “a central component” of PSE&G’s on-site solar-plus-storage microgrid to keep the facility running during extended power outages.
Dubai's state energy utility has awarded a $3.9 billion contract to build the 700-megawatt fourth phase of a solar power plant with molten salt energy storage.
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) gave the contract for the fourth phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park to a consortium comprising Shanghai Electric and Saudi Arabia's ACWA Power.
