Agri-Photovoltaics: pilot project with vertical solar modules in Lower Saxony, Germany

A demonstration and research solar power plant is planned with vertically oriented solar panels instead of the conventional tilted installation. This project is located in Dörverden, and it receives financial support from the Department of Environment of the federal state of Lower Saxony.

Long-duration energy storage (LDES) capacity to grow 400 times by 2040

The growing role of variable generation resources in the power grid has led to the perception, with significant analytic basis, that there will ultimately be a need to move beyond storage deployments with 4 hours of duration, currently dominated by lithium-ion batteries. This perception has resulted in calls for the use of long-duration energy storage, recognizing the potential for net load peaks that may extend to 8 or more hours under various scenarios of storage and renewable energy deployment.
