UK could tap into Africa’s $24bn market for off-grid solar power

Rapidly growing sector could prove lucrative as Britain seeks post-Brexit trade opportunities UK investors could seize a $24bn investment opportunity by helping to connect millions of people without access to electricity to off-grid home solar power systems. The market for pay-as-you-go home solar packages is expected to boom in Africa, where millions of homes are […]

Edinburgh scientists receive funding for pioneering study into hydrogen storage for decarbonising UK’s energy sector

Geoscientists from the University of Edinburgh have received funding from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) for a £1.4 million research project to investigate the storage of hydrogen in the subsurface. The project, HyStorPor (Hydrogen Storage in Porous Media), is designed to increase understanding of the whole hydrogen storage system, from fundamental physical […]

Solar-charged vanadium flow machine pre-qualifies for UK’s frequency response market

‘Flow batteries’ could provide frequency response in the UK for the first time ever, as a modestly sized solar-plus-storage system has been pre-qualified into National Grid’s dynamic firm frequency response (dFFR) market. Last week energy storage technology provider and system integrator RedT – which prefers the description ‘flow machines’ for its vanadium redox flow, long […]
