Energex is conducting a Battery Energy Storage Systems trial as part of a long-term strategy to manage demand on the network based on customers' ever-changing usage habits.
The Akasol neeoQube is an intelligent lithium-ion battery storage solution for any solar power system. Innovative and efficient, the product is designed to store excess power produced during the day so it can be used at any time needed, even during the night.
Atlas Copco's ES controllers increase the efficiency of multiple-machine installations. Offering a range of control and monitoring functions, the controllers can help reduce the pressure band of the compressed air or vacuum installation, equalise the running hours and minimise the unloaded running of the machines.
Emerson Process Management has completed a combined cycle optimisation project that generated operational improvements and slashed average fuel usage at a large power-generating unit operated by one of the largest utilities in the US.
Variable temperature scheduling and zoned heating are now drastically reducing home heating bills. Home energy management systems, used to coordinate scheduled heat, will seemingly become commonplace in the years to come.
US researchers have developed a way to combine the warm look of traditional light bulbs with 21st-century energy efficiency. Their study features a new type of filter that 'recycles' the infrared photons in incandescent bulbs.
The Cape housing project is said to be Australia's most energy-efficient housing development, with minimum standards of 7.5-star energy efficiency, 2.5 kW solar and 10,000 L water storage per home.
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has developed Powercaps — energy storage systems that combine the advantages of batteries and supercapacitors.
WA Minister for Energy Mike Nahan has announced a historic partnership between Horizon Power and China's Lishen Power that will explore ways of meeting energy demand quickly at a lower cost with the use of battery storage.
An innovative milk-chilling system has not only saved the quality of a New Zealand farmer's milk, but also his power bill.
Solco has entered into a heads of agreement to acquire Redback Investments Australia (RBIA), which owns 20% of emerging energy storage business Redback Technologies.
The ZE5/6 series is an air-cooled, low-pressure, oil-free air compressor delivering energy savings of up to 35% with its built-in VSD. As an energy-efficient alternative to traditional low-pressure compressors, it is suitable for various low-pressure applications as well as bulk material handling.
Ecoult has released its medium-scale version of UItraBattery, an industrial-strength lead-acid battery hybrid and ultracapacitor housed in a single cell with a common electrolyte.
The Australian Energy Storage Council has formally released the 2015 Global Energy Storage Market Overview & Regional Summary Report.
BuildingIQ has been named an approved supplier for measurement and verification (M&V) services by the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage. The OEH initiative aims to accelerate the uptake of energy efficiency in NSW by supporting up to 70 new M&V projects over the next two years.
