Indonesia’s most lively volcano Merapi has emitted hot clouds four times as far as 1,300 m to the southwest and southeast, the Geological Disaster Technology Research and Development Center said Thursday.

The third hot clouds were sliding down 1,300 m to the southwest at 6:39 a.m. with an amplitude of 22 mm for 125 seconds.

Based on monitoring from midnight to 12:00 a.m., the 2,968-m-high volcano, which is placed on the border between Yogyakarta and Central Java provinces and now on the grade of the third-level danger, has also released incandescent lava four times as far as 500 m to the southeast.

The expulsion of volcanic material could influence an area within a radius of 3 km from the summit if an explosive eruption occurs, according to the center.

China has an objective of installing more than 30 gigawatts (GW) of new energy storage capacity by 2025, its state planner said on Friday, as part of efforts to enhance renewable power consumption while guaranteeing stable operation of the electric grid system.

New energy storage meaning, electricity storage processes that use electrochemical, compressed air, flywheel and super capacitor systems but not pumped hydro, which uses water stored behind dams to generate electricity when needed.

According to the China Energy Storage Alliance, China has a total energy storage capacity of about 35 GW as of 2020, of which only 3.3 GW was new energy storage,

“Pumped hydro energy storage and new energy storage are significant technologies and basic equipment to support new power systems,” state economic planner the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said in a statement.

“They are vital for promoting green energy transition, responding to extreme situations and ensuring energy security.”

The world’s biggest electricity generator and carbon emitter is China and it has said that China is aiming for renewable power to account for more than 50% of its total electricity generation capacity by 2025, up from 42% now.

Sources say that at least 10 regions in China have ordered renewable power developers to install energy storage as supporting facilities of the solar and wind plants.

The NDRC said that it will study and put out a plan for new energy storage development for 2021-2025 and beyond, while advising the local energy authorities to make plans for the scale and project layout of new energy storage systems in their regions.

The Commission also said it will explore converting the existing sites of de-commissioned thermal power units to energy storage facilities.
