Back in the 90′s, the only place where you would see and LED would be on the on/off buttons of your electrical devices, and only came in red, yellow, green, and more red. With a couple of technological breakthroughs, LEDs are now the next big thing in efficient lighting, increasing the…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/the-next-stage-in-energy-efficiency-leds-and-oleds-lighting/ Efficiency, energy efficiency, Green Building, LEDs and OLEDs, lighting, OLED market, OLED vs LED Lighting, Tech, Utilities

Grid-Scale Energy Storage on the Cusp of True Market Entry holy grail of renewable energy Energy Storage Association meeting
Energy storage is often called the holy grail of renewable energy. The problem with the “grail”language is that the grail was never located. At least not with a compelling business case.
There is a lot to report from this week’s Energy Storage Association…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/environment/grid-scale-energy-storage-on-the-cusp-of-true-market-entry-holy-grail-of-renewable-energy-energy-storage-association-meeting/ advanced energy storage, big data, Electricity Grid, Energy and Economy, Energy Storage Association meeting, Finance, grid infrastructure, Grid-Scale Energy Storage, renewable energy, Renewables, Storage, Tech, True Market Entry
Plug-and-Play Grid Energy Storage Thanks to 1Energy’s Software per-kilowatt-hour basis, grid-scale battery projects
Why do batteries for the grid cost so much more, on a per-kilowatt-hour basis, than batteries for laptops, or even for electric vehicles? It’s not the cost of the battery technologies themselves, or even necessarily what grid customers are demanding from them.
Instead, it’s that today’s…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/environment/plug-and-play-grid-energy-storage-thanks-to-1energys-software-per-kilowatt-hour-basis-grid-scale-battery-projects/ 1Energy’s Software, advanced energy storage, demand response, Electricity, Electricity Storage 1Energy’s Software, Electricity Storage Association (ESA), Finance, Green Business, Grid Energy Storage, grid infrastructure, grid-scale battery projects, per-kilowatt-hour basis, Plug-and-Play, Renewables, Smart Grid, software, Storage, Tech, Utilities
