Solar and battery backup systems are the ideal antidote to the triple threat of high evening electric rates (over $0.50/kwh), frequent power failures (some of which are deliberate shut-offs), and our increasing dependence on electricity for the necessities of life (food, phones and fun).
Several established companies — including Tesla, LG-Chem, SolarEdge and Enphase — have developed excellent solar and storage systems for homeowners. These systems are great, but they must be designed properly so that they meet both the power (watts) and energy (kwh) needs of a home during an extended blackout.
Please join us on this week’s Energy Show Podcast as we talk about the evolution of battery storage technology, how solar and batteries work together, the technical limitations of storage systems, and the critical software and hardware components that factor into design considerations for battery backup systems that will reliably keep your lights on and your fridge cold.
This document contains links to all of the major / educational papers I have written and posted to Energy Central. I originally posted this document at the end of 2018. This quarterly update is at the end of the third quarter (September) of 2022.
Mitigating climate change is important, really important, and the sooner, the better. The first major step in this process is converting our electricity to 100% greenhouse gas (GHG) free generation. This is because all other major producers of..
There is a huge amount of new information coming out on the title-vehicles. Thus, I felt it was best to start and schedule this post before this trove requires a multivolume post.
Hydrogen will become an important but not dominant energy carrier in the future. Globally, hydrogen reaches in average 4-11% of the final energy consumption in 2050. In Europe, the relevance of hydrogen is higher compared to the energy..
