"It’s well understood that the battery in a UPS is the most vulnerable part of the system. In fact, battery failure is a leading cause of load loss. Knowing how to maintain and manage UPS batteries will extend their life and save data center managers time and trouble in the future.Improvements in battery technology have been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Capabilities such as advanced charging regimens, software management for accurate remaining life information and firmware adding intelligence to batteries have reduced, but not eliminated, the risks inherent in any battery. As a result, it’s prudent if not essential to take a close look at what may be increasing the risk of unexpec

Battery Energy Storage System Market Worth 6.81 Billion USD by 2022

"According to the new market research report "Battery Energy Storage System Market by Battery Type (Lithium-Ion, Advanced Lead Acid, Flow Batteries,, & Sodium Sulfur), Connection Type (On-Grid and Off-Grid), Ownership, Revenue Source, Application, And Geography - Global Forecast to 2022", published by MarketsandMarkets, the market is expected to reach USD 6.81 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 37.0% between 2016 and 2022." full article on found here.

New grid storage technology helps integrate renewables

"Developing cheap energy storage is a critical step in moving to renewables and away from fossil fuels as the primary source of electricity: it’s the only way such intermittent sources can supply power to the grid when the wind’s not blowing and the sun’s not shining.Duke Energy, the nation’s largest utility, is trying a novel strategy to tackle this challenge. At its Rankin substation, in North Carolina, it has installed a system of hybrid energy storage that combines a battery from Aquion Energy and ultracapacitors from Maxwell Technologies.The two technologies are complementary. The ultracapacitors, which are good for large, short-duration power surges, help supply power when the solar po

Dirty business: Africa's unregulated lead battery smelting

"Africa's car battery recycling industry is anything but green, write Desirée García & Javier Marín on African Environment Day. Toxic emissions from the re-smelting of lead from old batteries is poisoning workers and nearby communities. And among the buyers of the lead are EU car companies, apparently indifferent to the death, disease and contamination they are financing. In every African country, tens of thousands of individuals working on the side of the road or in backyards carry out lead battery recycling, according to UN sources. Besides this widespread informal smelting, corruption has helped big companies operate in many African countries disregarding international environmental regul

GE to evaluate renewable integration and energy storage possibilities in India

"Last year, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) and President Obama outlined numerous trade and investment initiatives with India at the U.S.-India Business Council Summit. Included in the plans was an initiative to invest nearly $2 billion for priority renewable energy projects in the country. Building off of this momentum, today, GE announced that its Energy Consulting business has been chosen by IL&FS Energy Development Company Limited to examine the feasibility of integrated wind, solar, and energy storage projects at its sites in Ramagiri (Andhra Pradesh) and Nana Layja (Gujarat). “Energy storage technologies are essential to the integration of renewables. They help to address
