The Solar Media Podcast returns for its first episode of the new year, with Liam Stoker and Andy Colthorpe discussing what’s on the immediate horizon for the solar and storage sectors.
UK Power Reserve has confirmed that battery storage solutions from Fluence will be used to build out its entire 120MW portfolio of projects to have secured contracts in the 2016 Capacity Market auction.
Fluence says it has secured the single largest energy storage portfolio transaction for a technology provider announced in the UK to date after being selected by UK Power Reserve (UKPR) to deliver half of its battery storage portfolio.
Northern Ireland’s Queens University Belfast (QUB) has found that battery-based energy storage can provide inertial response for system reliability at one tenth the capacity needed from thermal generation, at a lower cost and with substantially reduced emissions. Dr Marek Kubic at Fluence, which is working with QUB, explains.
