New batteries-Solar Energy Storage
New batteries to change solar energy storage
The Strategic Sourceror (blog)
While electricity sourcing from storage technologies for renewable energy is only emerging, it could soon become mainstream.
Solar power is an excellent alternative to traditional energy sources.
It’s clean, renewable, and increasingly popular. However, one of the challenges of solar energy is storing it for use when the sun isn’t shining. This is where batteries for solar storage come in.
Batteries used for solar storage come in a variety of types and sizes. They are designed to store the energy generated by solar panels during the day and release it when needed. This is especially useful for homes and businesses that use solar power as their primary source of electricity.
One of the most popular types of batteries for solar storage is the lithium-ion battery. These batteries are lightweight, have a high energy density, and can be recharged quickly. They are also relatively long-lasting and require minimal maintenance.
Another type of battery commonly used for solar storage is the lead-acid battery. These batteries are more affordable than lithium-ion batteries, but they are also heavier and require regular maintenance. Despite their drawbacks, lead-acid batteries are still widely used for solar storage.
Overall, batteries for solar storage play a crucial role in the adoption and success of solar energy. They allow solar power to be stored and used when needed, making it a more reliable and accessible energy source for everyone.
New Types of Batteries for Solar Storage” Not Far Away”
Although we have been trying out new systems for storing the energy produced by the Sun there does not seem to be any major developments coming from the big energy players. Millions of individuals have been trying different methods out using all types of devices and different types of batteries
The most successful battery at the moment appears to be the AGM battery (Absorbed Glass Matting). This type of New
batteries will dis-charge to much lower levels, than a normal wet lead acid battery, the type that is used in cars and trucks. But as we all strive to make renewable energy other methods have started to come to life. By the way one of the best AGM storage batteries on the market are made by Trojan batteries . They are a little more expensive than other makes but they are a heavy duty quality product and well worth looking at if you are interested in building a small bank of solar storage batteries.
A new kid on the block will shortly be the development of the Lithium-Ion solar storage unit. The idea has come from the development of the use of New batteries called Lithium-Ion batteries in the electric cars. These storage units will be tailor made as a thing that consumers can just buy and plug in to a solar panel system or a wind turbine. The idea comes from the car maker Tesla, who may work together with Bosch batteries to produce this product.
In my opinion this will open the gates for more companies to come up with more products and will be of great advantage to home owners and businesses alike.
A typical home owner with solar panels
Of course, could store the electricity when the cost is at the lowest and then use the electricity stored in the home or business when the rates are at their highest, by using New batteries . I actually have a bank of solar panels on my roof here in the UK.
Of course and they work really well. So, even now in November we still produce electricity on a sunny day. My solar system goes into the national grid. Naturally, the electric produced is bought from us by the electricity provider. Conveniently, if such storage system came onto the market. Such as a custom custom made one. Then I would think about changing things around.
I have sold New batteries all my working life, but I must confess that these are the most exciting times for change and different battery technologies and inventiveness coming from our Universities and colleges.
Update- Since I wrote this post then things have moved on t a pace. Introductions to the solar market now include ready made battery storage packages for home owners and business alike.
