Germany, India to collaborate on energy storage

[img:IESA_0.jpg| ]Berlin, Germany and Pune, India --- (METERING.COM) --- July 19, 2013 - The German Energy Storage Association (Bundesverband Energiespeicher e. V., BVES) and the India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together to advance the energy storage industry in the two countries.

“India is one of the most rapidly emerging markets with a clear perspective towards increasing the contribution of renewable energy in the energy mix,” said Prof. Dr. Eicke R. Weber, president of BVES. “This has to be accompanied by the availability of low cost reliable storage systems. BVES looks forward to cooperate with the IESA in furthering this process in India.”

Smart home system to be demonstrated by Honda

[img:Honda.thumbnail.jpg| ]Tokyo, Japan --- (METERING.COM) --- Apr 24, 2012 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. is venturing into the smart home market with the Honda Smart Home System (HSHS), which is now starting demonstration testing in a house the company has built in the city of Saitama in Japan.

The HSHS installed in this demonstration test house consists of CIGS thin film solar cell panels, a home rechargeable battery unit, household gas engine cogeneration unit and hot water supply system, and the Smart e Mix Manager. The Smart e Mix Manager, the core of the HSHS, is a comprehensive energy management device which applies optimal control to electricity supplied from the commercial grid and generated by each energy device in the system.

Concentrating Solar Power Alliance launched

[img:cspa_0.jpg| ]Washington, DC, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- March 12, 2012 - The Concentrating Solar Power Alliance (CSPA) has been launched by American concentrating solar power companies, Abengoa, BrightSource Energy, and Torresol Energy.

This new Alliance is dedicated to educating U.S. regulators, utilities and grid operators on the benefits of concentrating solar power and of thermal energy storage as a foundational resource for a reliable, low carbon electricity mix and a driver of economic growth.

What can we learn from the Danes?

Unlike most of Europe, which has taken only tentative steps towards renewables as an alternative to oil & gas, Denmark has taken the pledge to be fully carbon free by 2050.  Its renewable energy mix (mainly wind power and biomass) is planned to fully phase out fossil fuels, with the electrification of transport and heating crucial for its success.

Government and Ofgem need to do more on delivery of a...

[img:Paddy_0.JPG|Paddy Tipping, MP]London, U.K. --- (METERING.COM) --- February 25, 2010 - In a new report the U.K. Energy and Climate Change Committee has called on government to provide strategic leadership to ensure the timely delivery of a smart grid.

Further, the report says that although we know with some confidence how the electricity mix will evolve in the run up to 2020, there is much less certainty over what a completely decarbonized energy system might look like in the long run. Thus the government’s vision for the future of the electricity networks must take account of the range of possible scenarios for the evolution of the energy mix, ensuring it does not lock Britain into a particular outcome at an early stage.
