In the umbrella concept “Research Fab Battery”, German scientists want
to develop novel batteries that are capable of storing at least 70% more
energy for electric vehicles and smartphones than conventional
lithium-ion solutions while maintaining the same volume.
concept of bankability plays an important role in assessing the viability of new
solar power projects. Selwyn Corns, managing director of Stäubli Electrical
Connectors UK, discusses the effect PV connectors have on bankability and the
importance of their reliability over a plant’s expected 25+ year lifetime.
