BYD & Fe Batteries in Australia Developing Renewable Energy Storage Systems

By 2030, Australia could be 100% renewable, but without renewable energy storage when the sun goes down, all that development could be a partially wasted effort.

Renewable energy depends a lot on the weather. If the sun doesn’t shine, solar panels go dead. If the rain doesn’t fall, reservoirs behind hydroelectric dams go low and power dries up. Likewise, if the wind doesn’t blow, the windmills don’t turn. Backup power for power grids developing these renewable energy supplies are traditional power generation, including dirty fossil fuel plants. Renewable energy storage is critical to achieving a 100% renewable power grid.

Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer BYD has noted their overseas neighbor’s increase in solar power installations, and is moving in to help with renewable energy storage, both on grid- and home-scale. Australia is abundant in sunshine and becoming more abundant in solar panel installations. Combined with BYD and Fe Batteries, consumers can save money by saving their renewable energy for the next night or the next week, instead of just letting it go to waste.

Of course, profit is always at the center of it all, but lowered tariffs are making business with Australia cheaper for BYD.

  1. Sorry, we need advertising to survive. We may implement a paid subscription model in the future (like a $1 per month subscription), and that would be totally ad-free. How does that sound?

  2. I’m sure you’re right.  It just looked that way to me.  I am used to seeing the main article up top and other refs on the side.  I think it’s  a great site – just thought a different layout might look better.

  3. I think it’s great. I meant just the look of the page, with the ads at the top, and the article underneath

  4. Very important topic.
    I think it would be good if this topic were to be presented more as an article, and looking a bit less like an advertisement

    • ChristinaMacpherson BYD is expanding its technology into another sector for renewable energy efficiency and could go a long way toward increasing the adoption of clean renewable energy sources. how does this qualify as an advertisement?
