Energy is evolving. Renewable energy solutions are expanding faster than ever, and in Australia, it seems like hardly a day goes by without a new storage technology getting announced. All of this is symptomatic of an awakening energy consciousness around the world. People don’t want to passively consume electricity and pay for the bill anymore. They want energy to be an active choice, whether that be a choice to pay less on their utilities or a choice to reduce their carbon footprint.

People tend to associate New Zealand with the All Blacks, Maori culture, and thanks to the creative air safety videos produced by Air New Zealand - Lord of the Rings. But what has been somewhat of a secret until now is how Christchurch is quietly becoming a global mecca in high technology.

Thanks to world-renowned power electronics program at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch is home to a particularly high concentration of engineers who are perfectly skilled for high technology companies such as Enphase.

Enphase Battery Backup for power outages

Last week, a high-profile supplier of battery packs to the solar industry announced that it was discontinuing its plans for a 10kWh battery backup. It’s a good time to visit the question of what backup is and whether batteries are the way to best meet a homeowner’s backup needs.

Are Backup Batteries a Significant Solution for Power Outages?

When Raghu Belur talks about the beginnings of Enphase and where he believes the company and its technology will go in the future, his passion shines through. The most recent example of this enthusiasm can be found in the latest installment of Solar Power World’s “Solar Speaks” podcast, where Kathie Zipp, SPW’s managing editor, asks him about solar, energy storage, and the future of the grid.

Visiting an installer's main warehouse a couple of years ago, I noticed boxes of inverters, coated with dust, and relegated to the back corner of their sizeable warehouse. They were inverters, two years old, and becoming less valuable by the day. “We stocked up for a big job, then the permitting got delayed and by the time we were ready to install, the customer wanted the latest technology.

Although utilities might fear that adding significant amounts of renewable, decentralized energy will lead to grid instability and inefficiencies, the opposite can be true. By leveraging the millions of sensors that are already deployed, utilities can transform solar, storage, and other distributed energy resources into valuable assets for grid visibility, stability, and optimization.

It takes many people to come together to create a clean energy future. In this case, over 200 students from Melbourne Girls College in Melbourne, Australia, will be pedalling for up to 10 hours in groups of four on stationary bicycles to power up Melbourne’s annual carbon neutral, human powered cinema.
