“European Electricity Summary 2020”: Volatile weather saw levels of wind generation across Europe hit record levels in February 2020. Data from energy market analyst EnAppSys showed that wind power amounted to an average output of 85.4GW – equivalent to over two hundred 400MW coal units of power generation – in February 2020.
“Blowing Away Limitations on Wind Farms in the Irish Power Market”: Investment in technology and system services can help TSOs operate the power grid in a stable, secure manner while boosting renewable generation for a greener future. That’s the key finding from this research conducted by energy data analyst EnAppSys on the Irish power market.
2050 will be an important year for the entire world, but even more pressing will be the next ten years on the global energy agenda if we are to hit the net-zero target for decarbonisation. We cover designing the system around consumers, and sizing the system around demand.

At 4:52pm on Friday 9 August 2019, the UK suffered its first wide-scale blackout in over a decade. More than 1.1 million consumers were plunged into the dark as rail lines screeched to a halt, traffic lights failed and even airports reported problems. Liam Stoker looks at the root causes, and how battery storage came to the rescue
Digital technologies have the potential to transform the solar industry as it continues to seek greater efficiencies and lower costs. But as Dana Olson writes, a lack of both digital skills and mindset within organisations are key barriers to realising the full benefits of the technologies now available.
Batteries are increasingly widely used in grid balancing, but there are many more applications where a battery can play an important role. With electric grids requiring periodic maintenance, batteries can stand in for the grid during downtime in order to reduce the impact on industry and households, writes Dieter Castelein.
