    4. Risk for Texas-style power grid failure is growing in Western states

      Risk for Texas-style power grid failure is growing in Western states

      The Western Electricity Coordinating Council, which runs the Western Interconnection, has studied resources in the region and confirmed that at some times of the year, there's little surplus energy to call upon in an emergency.

      'Most subregions of the West have some hours of the year when they would be at risk if imports from other areas are limited,' said Victoria Ravenscroft, senior policy and external affairs manager at WECC, while updating Arizona regulators in March.

    7. What Biden’s American Jobs Plan Means for Energy Storage

      What Biden’s American Jobs Plan Means for Energy Storage

      President Biden’s American Jobs Plan, unveiled yesterday, contains the most ambitious infrastructure investment program any U.S. president has put forward in decades. The proposed $100 billion investment to transform our electricity grid is significant and will provide more jobs, decarbonize of the grid, drive renewables expansion, and enable grid stability. While it is too soon to know how portions of the plan might be implemented, its ideas and language offer a roadmap of the administration’s priorities for advancing clean energy and energy storage as a means of creating jobs, strengthening American competitiveness, and achieving 100% carbon-free electricity. In this blog,  Stem CEO John Carrington reviews some of the plan’s key elements and explain what they could mean for energy storage.

      ESA Praises American Jobs Plan That Would Accelerate Energy Storage Deployment

      The U.S. Energy Storage Association today praised the American Jobs Plan the White House released for including policies that would accelerate adoption and deployment of energy storage. 

      “To build back better, the United States must deploy energy storage at an unprecedented scale. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan would put us on that path. From factory to grid to frontline communities, it has the policies needed to achieve our goal of 100 GW of new energy storage by 2030 to decarbonize our power system, make our infrastructure resilient and put Americans in every state to work in a globally competitive industry,” U.S. Energy Storage Association Interim CEO Jason Burwen said.

      India’s ‘first grid-connected community energy storage system’ inaugurated in Delhi

      A lithium-ion battery energy storage system that has been switched on in Rani Bagh, Delhi, will serve multiple applications and could pave the way for adoption of smarter energy networks based on renewable energy across India. The battery system is relatively small by the standards of some of the grid-scale systems that are starting to be deployed worldwide, but nonetheless provides valuable services to the local electricity grid and community. Described as India’s first grid-connected community energy storage system, it could also help prove the case for wider rollout of similar solutions across India, the companies behind the project have said.

      Tesla Cofounder’s Battery Recycling Startup Ties Up With Top U.S. E-Waste Processor

      Redwood Materials, a startup created by Tesla cofounder J.B. Straubel to profitably recycle lithium-ion batteries, is partnering with ERI, North America’s biggest processor of electronic waste, to gain access to thousands of tons of cells it can turn back into valuable raw materials. As part of the new alliance, Carson City, Nevada-based Redwood, which already recycles battery materials from Panasonic and Amazon, is investing an undisclosed amount in privately held ERI and Straubel is joining its board. Initially, Redwood will receive up to 30 tons a week of lithium-ion batteries collected by ERI.

      Agilitas Energy starts work on its third SMART solar + storage project

      Agilitas Energy has begun construction on a third project developed under the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program. The project is a 10 MW community solar and energy storage project in Warren, about an hour west of Boston. Under rules of the SMART program, any project with a capacity greater than 500 kW must also include energy storage. The company did not disclose the project’s storage capacity. Agilitas is building two other community solar-plus-storage projects in the state; those two total 16 MW of solar and 18 MWh of energy storage.

    15. Doubling uptake of wind and solar power could set up Australia for net zero emissions by 2040

      Doubling uptake of wind and solar power could set up Australia for net zero emissions by 2040

      Australia could wipe out 80% of its greenhouse gas emissions – all of those from fossil fuel energy – in two decades by doubling the pace at which solar and wind power is being rolled out, academic analysis suggests. Australia installed about 7 GW of renewable energy in 2020, continuing a trend in which new clean energy generation roughly equivalent to that produced by a large coal-fired plant is added each year. Under this calculation, the country would have a near 100% clean electricity grid – backed by stronger long-distance transmission, battery and pumped hydro storage and demand management programs.

      Long-duration energy storage set for 'very steep' growth as sector enters commercial phase

      If you believe that lithium-ion batteries and pumped hydro are the only viable energy-storage options and that long-duration storage technologies are a long way from commercial reality, think again.

      For instance, UK start-up Highview Power, a pioneer in liquid-air energy storage, which has begun construction of two 50MW commercial projects in the US (400MWh) and the UK (250MWh), while German industrial giant Siemens Gamesa has plans to build its first commercial projects of up to 500MWh next year using its hot-rock thermal storage solution.

      The race to zero: can America reach net-zero emissions by 2050?

      Getting to this point by 2050 is a key goal set by Joe Biden in the effort to stem the worsening impacts of the climate crisis, which is already turning large parts of the US west to charcoal and pushing water to lap at the doorsteps of the nation’s coastal cities. But avoiding cataclysm requires a metamorphosis unlike any other in American history in a narrowing window of time.
