Trina Storage’s new 2.1 MWh DC All-New Elementa solution is a modular LFP battery cabinet with a plug-in concept to connect multiple units. The company is ramping up battery manufacturing capacity to strengthen vertical integration, given supply chain risks throughout the world.
Consumers Energy announced it entered agreements to add 300 MW of capacity across two solar projects to its generation mix.
A report released by DNV finds that operational technologies are not as robust in defending cyber attacks as they should be.
Also on the rise: An American at Intersolar. Why a long-term maintenance plan is essential. Solar that works in the shade. Scout Clean Energy buys nearly 400 MW of First Solar modules. Pine Gate purchases 2.4 GWh of EnerVenue batteries. And more.
The 378 MW of modules will be used to begin construction on several late stage projects with start of operations expected in 2024 across Scout’s 12 GW renewable project development pipeline.
Major players in the solar industry, such as LONGi Solar, are projecting accelerating growth in the near term.
Texas’ Buckeye Partners selected Burns & McDonnell to construct the project, expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023.
Also on the rise: Western and Southeastern utilities’ progress in advancing 194 GW of solar projects is a mystery. Michigan utility seeks land siting utility scale solar. Approximately 858 GWdc of solar and over 1 TWh of batteries are in development. Summit Ridge energizes Montgomery County’s first ground-mount community solar project. PG&E $11 million pilot programs to accelerate vehicle-to-everything technologies. 50 states of solar incentives: Rhode Island.
The utility seeks farm fields, brownfield sites, and publicly owned properties ranging from about 500 to 900 acres as it plans to add 8 GW of solar by 2040.
