      Warren Buffet’s Nevada Utility NV Energy to Consider Energy Storage in 330MW Renewables Push

      NV Energy, the main electric utility for the US state of Nevada, has tendered for more than 300MW of renewable energy in a Request for Proposals that also includes consideration of battery energy storage paired with renewables. Our sister site PV Tech reported mid-2017 that the utility exceeded Nevada’s state mandated target of 20% renewable energy in its generation mix during 2016 for the seventh year in a row. As of last March, NV had 8,726MW of owned and contracted generation capacity, of which 1,708MW is classified as “renewable and non-carbon generation capacity”.  NV yesterday issued the RfP for solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and biogas resources to add up to 330MW of new renewable energy projects. For the first time ever in one of its solicitations, NV also said that it will “consider adding supplemental battery energy storage systems that are integrated with the proposed renewable energy resource”. Proposals will be assessed for the value they provide to NV’s customers and in benefits conferred to the state of Nevada, as well as other factors.

    20. Batteries Perform Many Different Functions on the Power Grid

      Batteries Perform Many Different Functions on the Power Grid

      Driven largely by installations over the past three years, the electric power industry has installed about 700 megawatts (MW) of utility-scale batteries on the U.S. electric grid. As of October 2017, these batteries made up about 0.06% of U.S. utility-scale generating capacity. Another 22 MW of batteries are planned for the last two months of 2017, with 69 MW more planned for 2018. New energy storage information available in the 2016 edition of EIA’s Annual Electric Generator Report provides more detail on battery capacity, charge and discharge rates, storage technology types, reactive power ratings, storage enclosure types, and expected usage applications. Batteries, like other energy storage technologies, can serve as both energy suppliers and consumers at different times, creating an unusual combination of cost and revenue streams and making direct comparisons to other generation technologies challenging.

    21. US Wind + Storage: The Business Case

      US Wind + Storage: The Business Case

      As renewable energy continues to disrupt wholesale markets, energy storage has potential to exploit volatile energy prices by buying low and selling high, allowing a wind farm to shift its energy from periods of low prices to take advantage of spikes. As a result, announcements of wind plus storage hybrid systems are ramping up as these systems become more flexible and can accommodate a wide variety of renewable generation. However, wind energy’s less predictable output and its eligibility for the production tax credit and investment tax credit make the value proposition for paired storage less clear than it is for solar.
