A Boston-based solar developer with 208 MW of active projects is partnering with the American Farmland Trust to preserve rural farmland for agriculture and community solar development co-located on farmland, also known as Agrivoltaics.
Located in Brighton, Colorado, the facility will become the first large-scale commercial advanced manufacturing center for silicon anode lithium-ion batteries by the time it opens in 2025. The facility will be built in phases, with the first phase starting with an initial 500 MWh of production at the facility which at full scale will produce 5 GWh.
New battery materials tested by Berkeley Labs and Florida State University could result in a more conductive solid-state electrolyte that is less dependent on a large quantity of individual metals, which proves effective for the huge demand in the EV market.
U.S. researchers are studying how agrivoltaic systems mounted on single-axis trackers affect rainfall and light redistribution at a 1.2 MW installation on grassland in Colorado.
Also on the rise: 13 European PV equipment makers pitch their machines to U.S. PV manufacturers. EV batteries alone could satisfy short-term grid storage demand. And more.
Colorado residents and solar installers have accused utility Xcel Energy for having “no urgency” in installing meters and approving interconnection.
Two renewable energy storing 10 MW / 1,000 MWh batteries will be installed by Form Energy on former Xcel Energy coal fired plants.
CORE Electric Cooperative will purchase wholesale electricity from 400 MW of solar and wind and 100 MW of energy storage managed by Invenergy.
Also on the rise: Is NEM 3.0 based on flawed modeling? Virginia governor kills Ford-CATL battery plant, calling it a “front for the Chinese Communist Party”. And more.
Under the agreement, Juwi will continue to develop, and provide O&M support to Duke for the municipal project
