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 […]

Battery analyser for increased accuracy

  To help ensure reliability, stationary batteries need to be maintained and tested regularly. Even “maintenance free” batteries require regular testing because they can deteriorate over time. Most of the battery testers on the market had either no CAT rating or a low CAT rating, and so Fluke developed a battery analyser that is not […]

High power Li-ion battery for PV applications
