“Electrification is the future job motor.” This was the summary of an e-mobil BW 2015 structural study. The automobile and supplier industry ascribed good opportunities to becoming leading providers of electric mobility and creating tens of thousands of new jobs until 2025. The Institute for Automobile Economics anticipates that vehicle manufacturers will expand product ranges and within ten years may record a 20 percent share of their sales with battery or fuel cell vehicles as well as with plug-in hybrid vehicles.

ORE Catapult Launches Batwind: A New Battery Storage Solution For Offshore Wind

Batwing is a new battery storage solution for offshore wind energy. The concept will be piloted in the world’s first floating wind farm, the Hywind pilot park off the coast of Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Battery storage has the potential to support the deployment of wind energy by mitigating intermittency and optimising output to drive efficiency and lower costs. Stephen Bull, Statoil’s senior vice president for offshore wind, said: “Statoil has a strong position in offshore wind. By developing innovative battery storage solutions, we can improve the value of wind energy for both Statoil and customers.

Rooftop Solar Revolution? Giga Solar Announces Successful Test Results

The results are from a groundbreaking project aiming to develop a suite of technologies that make the process of buying, installing, and connecting rooftop solar energy systems faster, easier, safer, and less expensive. The high-efficiency, crystalline-silicon, lightweight modules enable innovative, low-cost rooftop mounting methods. As they are glass-free and frameless, they can be flush-mounted directly onto the roof, avoiding the need for racking hardware, eliminating roof penetrations, and shortening the installation time. These benefits all contribute to lowering the cost of solar electricity. In addition to these benefits, the reduced module weight decreases transportation costs and improves ease of handling. The implications are highly significant in both developed and early stage markets – worldwide.
