Agri-Photovoltaics: fundamentally right way to a successful energy transition

Agri-Photovoltaics will account for a significant share of the necessary renewable energy expansion in Europe in the future. The core idea behind Agri-Photovoltaics is the integration of two land uses, which can be designed in such a mutually compatible way that both uses can mutually benefit from the integration. This is evidently possible between photovoltaics and agriculture and leads to a higher land use efficiency.

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.

Game Changer: Organic flow batteries using liquid electrolytes

Energy storage units are becoming an elementary factor in the energy transition. Organic flow batteries are made of organic materials. Those can be a game-changer for the method of storing green energy safely and environmentally friendly in large quantities.
