Europe’s share of global lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing is set to grow from 6 percent last year to 35 percent in 2026, new figures show.

Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables forecasts the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region will account for almost 228 gigawatt-hours of lithium-ion cell manufacturing capacity a year by 2026, out of a total of around 649 gigawatt-hours worldwide.

The EMEA figure, which almost completely relates to capacity in Europe, compares to a forecast of nearly 345 gigawatt-hours of cell manufacturing capacity in Asia Pacific and less than 66 gigawatt-hours across the whole of the Americas.

A broad coalition of community energy choice groups from across Northern California called last week for a sweeping restructuring of Pacific Gas & Electric, in the wake of the utility's unfolding bankruptcy. The groups argue that the state’s largest utility should get out of the retail energy business all together, and instead focus on the distribution and transmission of power.
The California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) and community choice aggregators (CCAs) pressed their case in a new filing with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). They claim that CCAs should take over the role from the utility in generating and procuring of electricity for communities, and

Australia’s grid storage market isn’t just for batteries any more.

Canadian startup Hydrostor will build a novel compressed air storage device in renewables-rich South Australia, the company announced last week. It plans to use the 5 megawatt project as  a "showpiece" to educate customers and the public on this unusual technology.

Lithium-ion batteries rule the storage market, but they don’t excel at very long duration storage. That long duration resource is becoming more valuable in regions where a large share of wind and solar power supplies the grid, making for booms and busts of production.

Hydrostor uses surplus electricity to pump air

Germany’s solar market witnessed its strongest growth in half a decade during 2018, adding almost 3 gigawatts of capacity, according to industry figures.

The German solar association Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft (BSW) said the 2018 figures represented a 68 percent increase on those for the previous year. The capacity additions mean there are now 46 gigawatts of solar power installed across the country.

This makes Germany the fourth-largest PV market in the world, with 46 gigawatts of solar capacity. That puts Germany behind China, which has 174 gigawatts of solar capacity, the U.S., which has 63 gigawatts, and Japan, which has 60 gigawatts, the Associated Press
