Utility Scale Storage

How long will the lithium supply last?

Researchers have sounded the alarm. If no serious efforts are made on second-life battery use, recycling and vehicle-to-grid applications, decarbonization efforts may hit the buffers a lot sooner than expected.

NREL scientists estimate global potential of hydro-linked floating PV at up to 7.5 TW

The U.S. based researchers said linking solar with hydro in a full hybrid system configuration may result – at best – in the deployment of 7,593 GW for an estimated annual power generation of 10,616 TWh and a 20% reservoir coverage. And combining solar with hydro in this way brings further benefits, including improved system operation at different time scales, more opportunities for storage thanks to pumped hydro, increased utilization rates of transmission lines, reduced PV curtailment, and lower interconnection costs and water evaporation.

Study explores feasibility of North India’s renewables transition

The region could, by 2050, cut greenhouse gas emissions from power, heat, transport and desalination which are expected to add up to more than 825 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent this year. Such a transition could be perfectly possible, technically and financially.

C-MET seeks co-funding partner for lithium and sodium-ion battery cell manufacturing

The selected party will provide funding support of Rs 4 crore by way of design and development of machinery for lithium- and sodium-ion battery cell manufacturing. September 30 is the deadline to submit the interest.  

Global green hydrogen project pipeline reaches 50 GW

International thinktank IEEFA says there are 50 viable green hydrogen projects under development with an estimated renewable energy capacity of 50 GW and the potential to produce 4 million tonnes of the fuel annually.

Solar-powered hydrogen under $2/kg by 2030

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have identified sites where hydrogen could be produced via PV electrolysis at prices ranging from $1.90/kg to $4.20/kg in the United States by the end of the decade.

Greenko, NTPC sign MoU for round-the-clock power supply

Hyderabad-based RE developer Greenko Energies, which is developing over 40 GWh of pumped hydro storage projects in India, has partnered with NTPC to develop round-the-clock power supply solutions by integrating renewable energy sources and pumped storage.
