We are at a transformational moment in the energy sector. As more of the industry begins to understand the value of storage, we are seeing the launch of more initiatives that will be able to tap into the unrealized potential of energy storage. Alevo continues to forge ahead into the energy storage market, setting the new standard in lithium-ion batteries and engaging globally in the energy storage conversation. Here are some of the highlights from the last few months…
Intersolar / EES is a global event focused on the solar and energy storage sectors. Alevo attended Intersolar & EES in both Munich and San Fransisco this year. There was a lot of buzz in the both around our GB35 demonstrator unit and the Alevo Analytics Stacked Service Emulator.
In June, Alevo Analytics’ Chief Analytics Officer, Dr. Randell Johnson was featured as Keynote speaker during he Africa Solar + Energy Storage Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. Dr. Johnson spoke about Energy Storage being the next “Leap Frog” in Africa.
Alevo was proud to host the Carolinas E4 event on our Concord campus along with Duke Energy to discuss microgrids and energy in the carolinas. Cooperations like this are what will drive energy progress and change, not just in the carolinas but also globally. E4 Carolinas is the trade association for the Carolinas energy economy, providing Members opportunities to increase their value and success.
USTDA is partnering with Kenyan renewable energy developer Xago Africa and US battery storage manufacturer Alevo USA, Inc and analytics service provider Alevo Analytics to support the development of a utility scale solar photovoltaic power plant with integrated battery storage in Siaya County, Kenya. The project will utilize battery storage technology from Alevo and will be among the first utility-scale battery storage installations in Africa.
“Solar plus energy storage will enable Kenya to increase the adoption of renewable energy as the storage will provide grid stability, help to manage solar intermittency, and provide dispatchability of clean reliable and sustainable power to the Kenyan people,” confirmed Dr Randell M Johnson, PE, Chief Analytics Officer, Alevo Analytics.
In this interview with pv magazine LIVE, Alevo Chief Analytics Officer Randell Johnson talks about Alevo's work with energy storage, including its sophisticated analytical products to size energy storage and get the most out of these systems.
Alevo’s plans to add additional production lines and equipment at its battery manufacturing facility in Concord will create just over 200 jobs and invest $251.5 million into the local economy.
Sergey Buchin will be joining Alevo as the Chief Operating Officer. Sergey’s experience prior to Alevo includes key leadership roles in manufacturing, investing, and consulting at companies such as Intercomp, InvesTEK, Arbat Consulting, and BSK.
