Want a solar home? Consider batteries. | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Most solar homes are still dependent on the grid, so when the grid fails, they lose power. But that's beginning to change as the solar industry begins to focus on battery storage as the next 'green' frontier.
eric roberts's insight:

AGM Batteries for solar power

People in many countries are looking for a way to store the suns power that comes from their solar panels, we need to store the energy when the Sun does not shine or in the hours af darkness.

Solar companies are advocating the use of sealed lead acid batteries that are sealed, known as AGM batteries. These AGM batteries will allow a greater dis-charge and charge rate as compaired with say normal free flow acid car type batteries.

number of design elements to provide optimum performance. Robust plates extend the life-cycle of Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries.
Trojan batteries are designed to offer extra deep cycle and are designed as follows...
"A separator of glass fibers serves to isolate the positive and negative plates while acting as a blotter to absorb the electrolyte. The separator is maintained under compression between plates to assure contact with plate surfaces. A computer-generated grid design is optimized for high-power density. Low calcium grid alloy reduces gas emissions and a flame arresting, one-way pressure relief vent prevents buildup of excessive pressure. Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries are low temperature tolerant, shock and vibration resistant and have a low internal resistance for higher discharge current and higher charging efficiency"...http://www.trojanbatteryre.com/Products/Products.html?tab=3#TabbedPanels1#top

eric roberts's insight:

Hi When i first saw this i thought it was an April fool joke. But when i went deeper in to it i found that it was a real machine which you can buy on Alibaba.

In  my opinion it is a non starter for here in the UK, (but i am the one who said that they would never go to a hole in the wall money machine in the pouring rain) but look how wrong i was?

This thing may take off, but i doubt it. The battery market is changing at a rapid pace and the batteries that are stored would be quickly out of date. Perhaps the big supermarkets will buy them, because they seem to have bottomless  pits of money to through at new ideas?

eric roberts's insight:

This article from Ezine articles is a reference to different makes of the Lithium-Ion(li-on) batteries that we are seen more of in common usage.

li-on batteries are now been developed for many things from Golf carts to motorcycle battery use, but only time will tell whether or not they will stand up to the rigors of normal battery every day usage.

My opinion is that the current model will be further improved, but at the moment compared to the normal lead acid battery, they are much lighter and will charge quicker and last much longer, but as i say i think only time will tell about there overall performance and whether or not that the batteries will be able to be disposed of safely.

The big car companies will be looking for new ideas and develop them onto new car products in the coming years. This will also include new diesel engine technology as well as hydrogen cell engines as well as new types of batteries that will be developed. These are very interesting times for us car enthusiasts, but the big green picture will be on whatever FUEL the countries power  stations run on at the moment the  hybrid cars are re-charging on electricity that is fueled by COAL and GAS, not forgetting NUCLEAR (all of which are very dirty methods) thanks.

The flight just vanished over the ocean,but was detected months later and thousands of miles away in the ocean by a company that specialises in the location of sunken vessels, with one of their underwater subs.

The black box indicated pilot error and the mystery was cleared.

Batteries- May Vie With U.S. Oil Boom as Energy Changer

Batteries- May Vie With U.S. Oil Boom as Energy Changer | All about batteries | Scoop.it
The rapid development of rooftop solar and battery storage technology could be as transformative to the economy and modern life as the U.S. oil and gas boom, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said. (Batteries May Vie With U.S.
eric roberts's insight:

The USA Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz has come out with a statement that i have being talking about for a couple of years now. In this article he says that the USA could start to be getting independent of the national energy providers if the growth in solar energy and other renewable resources can keep growing at the present rate.

In my opinion the public in America and other continents such as here in the Uk, have really grasped the nettle as far as going it alone with solar energy. The solar panels in this picture are situated in a small town in West Yorkshire UK and start producing energy from the Sun as early as February. The electricity that is produced from these solar panels is sent straight into the electricity grid through a reverse meter and the electric company pays the house owner for the electricity that is provided.

In America there is a growing trend to store the electricity that is collected from the panels into banks of batteries, this is also useful in rural and more isolated areas, where the batteries can store the electricity for use at night by the house owners.

The most e4ffective type of batteries to use are AGM batteries. These AGM batteries will cost more in the first instance but will give better service due to the ability to have much greater charge and dis-charge cycles than say a normal lead-acid battery.

There are many DIY videos available to show householders how to set up a solar storing system and one of them is Trojan batteries. These batteries are very suited for the use with solar energy and anyone thinking of doing this should look at the Trojan AGM product.

Like the USA energy secretary Ernest Moriz i too wonder how long off are we before we are producing more electricity than the national providers and what happens then?.

eric roberts's insight:

This is a great article about the fear that may cause disruption amongst electricity providers if say the increase in solar power applications such as solar panels and wind turbines backed up by battery storage. The fear is that the providers will be thrown out by number of consumers that are switching to their own power supplies and in the future this will throw the electric providers out with their future demand predictions for supplies. In my opinion it will be a chance to get revenge for the years that we have been treated badly by these companies, i for one have installed solar panels and this has reduced my electric bills considerably,i suppose that the people who will suffer are the poorer amongst us who can not afford the panels in the first place.
