SA Energy Storage 2017 conference presentations and papers

Energy storage is globally considered the new wave in the energy sector following on from, and supporting, recent developments in renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. To support this technological development, EE Publishers hosted the SA Energy Storage 2017 conference and exhibition at Emperors Palace in November 2017. This focussed conference and exhibition covered policy, […]

Battery pilot could power up 1600 jobs

A new research pilot plant for manufacturing materials used in batteries could ultimately lead to the creation of 1600 jobs.  Science and Technology Minister, Naledi Pandor, launched the Lithium Ion Battery (LIB) precursor pilot plant facility, established in partnership with the University of Limpopo, in Mbombela this week. The facility’s project manager, Danie Theron, said […]

Energy storage units for Botswana

UK energy storage company RedT Energy has sold 14 of its 40 kWh modules to an unnamed Botswana-based customer for use at communications infrastructure sites across the country. The company’s CEO,  Scott McGregor, says that this sale represents a sizable commercial order for the company after deploying its initial units in South Africa. NcGregor says he […]

Battery development needs to speed up

  Battery technology – also known as energy storage technology – is not keeping up with the requirements of other developments in the electronics and communication industry. For the past nine years the American Department of Energy has been holding an annual symposium called “Beyond Lithium-ion” dedicated to supporting newer, lighter, more energy-dense batteries. But […]

Rugged batteries for reliable PV storage

  Silicon Engineering is the sole agent for BAE-Berlin batteries in South Africa. BAE solar batteries are used in renewable energy applications such as solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation. They are also used in hybrid applications as well as in stand-alone PV systems, which include a very wide range of sizes and application fields. BAE […]

Emergency power, lithium batteries and earthing conference

  Registrations are now open for the Emergency Power Supplies, Lithium Batteries and Earthing Conference to be held at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand on 27 and 28 July 2016.  The conference will deal with the adequacy of emergency power supplies; the quality of power supplied, and discuss how these problems can be addressed for plant, […]

Counting on energy storage for better utility-scale PV output

  Photovoltaic (PV) plant operators are keen to adopt energy storage if the grid operator demands a certain ramp rate from their output. It is critical to assess how various stakeholders perceive energy storage and what sort of developments can be expected in the solar PV arena. Energy storage today can allow utility-scale PV to […]

Green power: Energy storage remains the weakest link

  Of all the new technologies being developed across the globe, batteries – or rather, energy storage – remains the weakest link in any system. Researchers are continually improving the efficacy of solar cells and wind generators but the question of how to store it for when it is needed most seems to elude the […]
