Guyana to install 33 MWp of Grid-scale Solar PV + Storage

Guyana plans to install 33 MWp (megawatt peak) of grid-scale solar PV with battery storage in three of its un-interconnected (isolated) grids. The Government of Guyana (GoG), notwithstanding the Country’s evolving oil and gas sector, is committed to the development of a cleaner, greener, and more diversified energy matrix that is based on indigenous resources… Continue reading Guyana to install 33 MWp of Grid-scale Solar PV + Storage

Jamaica’s RE Near Term Outlook

The Jamaican electricity sector has seen its fair share of investment in renewable energy over the last two decades or so, to the tune of approximately US$360 million to be exact. Development to date: Jamaica has a long history of using its indigenous renewable sources of energy to generate electricity. This dates back as far as… Continue reading Jamaica’s RE Near Term Outlook


Compressed Air Energy Storage Technology

What is Compressed Air Energy Storage Technology? This is a form of large scale energy storage technology that is currently attracting the interest of technologists and researchers around the world. Called CAES for short, compressed air energy storage is accomplished by pumping air into underground storage chambers such as depleted gas wells or salt caverns.… Continue reading Compressed Air Energy Storage Technology


Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage Technology

Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage (PHES) is a form of energy storage technique that is based on the storage of a large amount of water at a high elevation. This is accomplished with two water reservoirs (artificial lake or sea) which are at two different elevations (pressure heads), by pumping water from the lower elevation to… Continue reading Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage Technology


Grid Level Energy Storage

Have you been wondering, like many, what is Grid Energy Storage and why is there so much talk about large-scale energy storage? Well, grid-level energy storage systems (ESS) are large-scale facilities used to store energy in one form or the other (electrical, chemical, potential, gravitational, etc) within an electric power grid. Energy is stored during… Continue reading Grid Level Energy Storage
