Want a solar home? Consider batteries.

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 

Trojan Batteries are available from www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk price on application.

Construction begins at Kennedy wind, solar and battery storage hub | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Construction has begun on the first 60MW of the proposed 1200MW Kennedy Energy Park, the world-leading wind, solar, and battery storage project in north Queensland.
eric roberts's insight:

For hundreds of years, mankind has benefited from the use of fossil fuels. A big drawback is that using this type of energy source has negative consequences to the environment. The pollution of air because of carbon emissions cause illnesses and above all has caused the greenhouse effect in some parts of the world.

Trojan Battery Launches New Solar AGM Line of True Deep-Cycle Batteries to Power Remote Oil & Gas Well Equipment | Battery Power Magazine

Trojan Battery Co., LLC has launched a new line of maintenance-free, true deep-cycle absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries specifically designed for solar and other renewable energy applications used in powering remote oil and gas well site equipment.
eric roberts's insight:

This new Trojan battery is quite different from a common battery that converts chemical energy into electrical energy. While such batteries have the capacity to store energy (in the form of chemicals), solar panels have to depend on an external storage to do so.
Solar cells are made up of particular types of semiconductor doped with impurities-- these became very sensitive to light. Very soon, mankind began to recognize the potential of their discovery and begin searching for better materials to make efficient photo voltaic cells.

Demand for AGM Batteries in Electric Vehicles to Drive Battery Market

Demand for AGM Batteries in Electric Vehicles to Drive Battery Market | All about batteries | Scoop.it
July 7, 2017—Automotive batteries market analyst says latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing demand for AGM batteries, according to ReportsnReports.  AGM batteries were used in the aircraft in the 1980s. They are well suited for vehicles that are heavily equipped with electrical accessories, such as navigation system; touchscreen infotainment system; and electric parking brakes and technologies, such as start and stop. As there is an increase in the trend of electrical accessories, the popularity of AGM batteries has also grown. According to . . .
eric roberts's insight:

Deep cycle AGM batteries have numerous other uses such as engines for golf carts, traffic signals, solar powered or wind powered engines and many more. If you want the best way to shop for these batteries, then your most suitable option is to purchase it online.

YELLOWTOP® Batteries | Best AGM Deep Cycle Battery |OPTIMA® Batteries

The YELLOWTOP® high-performance AGM battery is the best deep cycle battery you need. It's ideal for trucks with winches and accessory-loaded vehicles.
eric roberts's insight:

If you want to get the best performance out of your vehicle or any sort of machinery, you will need to have the best battery to serve as its power. If you are someone who owns large vehicles such as rvs and boats or perhaps you may have operated heavy machinery before, chances are high that you are very familiar with Optima deep cycle batteries. Unlike normal car batteries that are made to provide quick powerful bursts of discharge in order to kick start the engine, these batteries are designed for tasks with longer applications.

World's Largest Storage Battery Will Power Los Angeles

World's Largest Storage Battery Will Power Los Angeles | All about batteries | Scoop.it
More than 18,000 lithium ion battery packs would replace a gas-fired power plant used to meet peak demand
eric roberts's insight:

Although, this is good news for the future of Los Angeles (LA). The power storage solution though is well overdue?

They are expected to have many blackouts shortly. The good news is that LA is not the only large city to try overcome supply problems. Countries are recognising that cheap solar energy and electricity that is produced by wind turbines is the way forward.

The only problem is to find a solution to store the energy that is produced during the day and then releasing it at night when the demand is high. Here in the UK, it is common knowledge that they are looking for storage solutions in and around the vast London area.

12-Volt Batteries | Sealed AGM | U.S. Battery

U.S. Battery manufactures multi-purpose 12-volt deep cycle batteries proven to provide the fastest cycle-up to full rated capacity.
eric roberts's insight:

Wind and solar energy are at the forefront of renewable energy these days but many do not realize the problem as using them as a main source for the grid. Only 35 percent of a wind turbine's maximum energy output can be considered as the firm and constant energy level. Home-owned turbines can sell their excess energy back to the grid. Battery storage is the answer.

Utilities fighting against rooftop solar are only hastening their own doom

Utilities fighting against rooftop solar are only hastening their own doom | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Batteries are going to make rooftop solar invulnerable.
eric roberts's insight:

For smaller electronic devices, solar panel battery chargers should have an internal battery, which chargers and then is hooked to the device. Many larger solar panel battery chargers for car and RV's have a built in surge protector.

Solar panel battery chargers can be a great way to keep all of your portable electronic devices charged no matter where you go. There are different products available, some that charge the device directly from the panel, others that have an internal battery, which needs to be charged, then discharges to the linking device. There are many good qualities about solar panel battery charges, but there are also some things that you should know about them before you run out and buy just any product.

Ask the Expert: Can I use any battery charger on newer style AGM and gel cell batteries?

Ask the Expert: Can I use any battery charger on newer style AGM and gel cell batteries? | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Traditional battery chargers may overcharge certain battery types.
eric roberts's insight:

Essentially the batteries are created using glass mats that have thin fibers of glass woven into them which increases the surfaces area. This then allows the AGM battery to work in the same way that a flooded lead acid battery does, except the electrolytes are stored in the glass mats.
AGM batteries were first designed in the 80s by a company called Concorde Aircraft Battery in order to replace the NI-Cad batteries that were being used by helicopters and fighter jets at that time, while at the same time providing benefits such as warm weather vibration resistance.
