They are increasingly looking to embrace tech modernization while simultaneously focusing on their relationship with customers.
Storage helps solar contribute to the electricity supply even when the sun isn't shining by releasing the energy when it's needed.
Batteries are a critical component of the clean energy future for one key reason: they are able to match variable energy supply to energy demand. Why this is so important requires a quick discussion of the differences between producing electricity with fossil fuels and producing electricity with clean energy resources, like wind and solar.
The term renewable solar energy project means the energy collected from renewable resources. These resources includes sunlight, wind, geothermal heat, rain, tides, biomass and waves etc. Dasstech utilizes Sunlight as a form of renewable source of energy. Energy can be harnessed from sun even in cloudy weather conditions. Solar energy is used in renewable energy projects worldwide and is most popular for generating electricity and heat or may be used for desalinating water.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) energy and storage technologies are the ultimate, powerful combination for the goal of independent, self-serving power production and consumption throughout days, nights and bad weather. In our series about solar energy storage technologies we will explore the various technologies available to store (and later use) solar PV-generated electricity. A clear focus of this series will be the various solar battery technologies available and their future role in solar PV energy storage. In this first part, we will look at the current situation of energy storage and have an overview about different main technologies.

“Storage” refers to technologies that can capture electricity, store it as another form of energy (chemical, thermal, mechanical), and then release it for use when it is needed. Lithium-ion batteries are one such technology. Although using energy storage is never 100% efficient—some energy is always lost in converting energy and retrieving it—storage allows the flexible use of energy at different times from when it was generated. So, storage can increase system efficiency and resilience, and it can improve power quality by matching supply and demand. Storage facilities differ in both energy capacity, which is the total amount of energy that can be stored (usually in kilowatt-hours or megawatt-hours), and power capacity, which is the amount of energy that can be released at a given time (usually in kilowatts or megawatts). Different energy and power capacities of storage can be used to manage different tasks. Short-term storage that lasts just a few minutes will ensure a solar plant operates smoothly during output fluctuations due to passing clouds, while longer-term storage can help provide supply over days or weeks when solar energy production is low or during a major weather event,
There are various types of batteries, each with varying chemical properties, life cycles, operating temperatures, energy density and power density parameters. The main battery technologies are: a) Lead-Acid (PbA) b) Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) c) Nickel-Cadium (NiCd) d) Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) e) Sodium-Sulfur (NaS) f) Zinc-Bromine g) Carbon-Zinc
Compressed air energy storage (CAES) systems store cost-efficient off-peak electricity via a compressor in the form of compressed air. The compressed air is pumped into a reservoir, in most cases kilometer-deep underground reservoirs, caverns or depleted wells. Once needed during electricity peak demand times, the compressed air is released and flows through an expansion pressure turbine that is attached to a generator and then fed as electricity to the grid. The expanded air must be heated in order to drive the turbines and thus generate electricity. Therefore, higher efficient CAES systems, called adiabatic systems, store the heat produced during the air compression process and use it during air expansion. Diabatic systems do not store but dissipate a large portion of the heat produced at air compression to the atmosphere. As heat is needed for the expanding air to power the turbines, the recovery process of that stored energy requires extra heat input for example in the form of burners. Yet, these burners require fuel or additional power to work. A third type of CAES systems are isothermal systems that during the compression and expansion of air attempt to maintain the required heat levels by constant heat exchanges to the environment. However, even though aiming at a perfect heat exchange maintenance, heat losses are unavoidable and thus reduce the operational efficiency of isothermal systems, making them unattractive for large-scale installations. By 2014, CAES systems accounted for over 440MW of installed energy capacity worldwide.
n advanced FES systems, the flywheel is placed in a vacuum so as to reduce frictions, and can spin at very speeds with 5-digit rotations per minutes. Attached to these systems are motors and generators to add and extract electricity. On a global scale, over 25MW of FES systems as grid-connected electricity storage had been installed by 2014.
