More Tesla stationary ESS partnerships: Cargill and PG&E, LichtBlick

Green Car Congress

Cargill is collaborating with Tesla and Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) to install a 1 MWh Tesla energy storage product at the company’s Fresno, California beef processing facility. The Tesla batteries will be charged daily from the existing PG&E electricity grid system during off-peak hours, when electricity rates are lowest. The electricity stored in the batteries will then be used when rates are the highest each day during peak use times (peak trimming).

Shipping industry eyeing hydrogen fuel cells as possible pathway to emissions reduction; work by Germanischer Lloyd and DNV

Green Car Congress

HybridSHIP is concerned with introducing batteries for on-board energy storage, integrated with fuel cells and gas engines. Two recently opened projected in Germany, Dr Sames pointed out, have demonstrated how using hydrogen to store surplus energy was already a viable technology. When internal consumption was taken into account, the electric efficiency was estimated to be 44.5%, and no NO x , SO x and PM emissions were detectable.
