Weighing the Advantages of Distributed and Centralized Energy Storage

Weighing the Advantages of Distributed and Centralized Energy Storage

As the amount of electricity generated by solar and other distributed energy resources increases to substantial levels, there becomes a greater need for technologies such as energy storage that can help grid operators enhance the operational functionality of their assets as well as provide customers with a platform to better manage their energy use. When many energy professionals hear the term “distributed storage,” they envision a large battery-based centralized system, connected either in “front” or “behind” the utility side of the meter, and more than likely including a solar array as the power generation source.

No tool standardization in thin-film solar? Here’s another way to cut costs

Tool standardization a la the semiconductor industry hasn't yet evolved for thin-film solar PV manufacturing, but in the meantime there's a lower-cost alternative to squeeze out manufacturing costs, explains Lauren Ravenscroft from Owens Design.

Local governments have significant power to influence the energy choices of their citizens. They administer and regulate water supply, waste collection, public transport, and infrastructure. They own buildings, land, waste treatment facilities and vehicle fleets and they have close proximity to citizens and businesses.
