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.
An expert in the utility-scale solar industry has joined zinc-hybrid energy storage system maker Eos Energy Storage’s board as the firm ramps up manufacturing and large-scale deployment.
Jim Hughes joined Eos as Chairman of the Board to help guide the development of its hybrid zinc cathode, aqueous electrolyte-based battery technology from development to commercial deployment.
Lithium-ion technology will be at the heart of the first community solar project in Texas, US, tied to a utility-scale battery storage system.
California’s energy storage firm BioSolar and the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) are to partner for the development of polymer-based supercapacitors.
The partners aim to develop supercapacitors for reducing the cost of storing energy from solar power.
