    2. GE’s Largest Battery Deal Yet Will Support a 200MW Australian Solar Plant

      GE’s Largest Battery Deal Yet Will Support a 200MW Australian Solar Plant

      GE won its biggest grid battery deal so far, to supply a solar plant in South Australia. The 200-megawatt Solar River plant will be coupled with a 100-megawatt/300-megawatt-hour GE Reservoir grid storage system. Solar River could start generating power as early as 2021. This battery will outrank South Australia's Hornsdale Power Reserve, the Tesla-supplied system that currently holds the title for world's largest. Like that battery, it will provide fast-reacting capacity for a state grid dealing with rapid renewables growth and baseload coal retirement. But the GE system will use its longer energy duration to turn solar power into a dispatchable resource.

    3. Arkansas Boots up 10-MW Solar, 24-MWh Storage Facility in Fayetteville

      Arkansas Boots up 10-MW Solar, 24-MWh Storage Facility in Fayetteville

      The City of Fayetteville, Arkansas, is now home to one of the first large-scale solar-plus-storage systems in the mid-South, a joint project between the city, Ozarks Electric Cooperative, and Today’s Power Inc. The project consists of three solar arrays and two battery facilities sited near Fayetteville’s two water treatment facilities. With a capacity of 10 MW of solar and 24 MWh of energy storage, the installation will save the city approximately $180,000 per year.

      Enabling Versatility: Allowing Hybrid Resources to Deliver Their Full Value to Customers

      Hybrid resources are growing dramatically. Energy storage-paired generators offer enhanced capabilities and can respond to economic signals differently than traditional generator resources. Yet, many grid planning rules overstate the cost of interconnecting hybrid resources, and operating rules unduly limit the flexibility and other services that these resources can provide. Industry practices, market rules, and regulations need to be updated to remove barriers to entry and allow these resources to offer their full value to the power system, which will enhance market competition and ensure just and reasonable rates.

      California Supercharges Battery Incentive for Wildfire-Vulnerable Homes

      California has passed its first-ever subsidy aimed specifically at bringing more distributed solar and energy storage to people at highest risk of having their power shut off by utilities trying to prevent wildfires. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved changes late last week to the Self-Generation Incentive Program, the state’s premier behind-the-meter battery incentive program. Among them is a $100 million carve-out for vulnerable households and critical services in “high fire threat districts,” offering incentives that could pay for nearly all of a typical residential battery installation, according to the CPUC analysis.

      Renewables, Storage Poised to Undercut Natural Gas Prices, Increase Stranded Assets: RMI

      Wind, solar, and storage projects, combined with demand-side management, have reached a 'tipping point,' meaning they're now able to compete alongside natural gas on price while providing the same reliability services. But unlike the fluctuating price of fuels, these technologies' prices are expected to continue dropping, according to a pair of reports released by the Rocky Mountain Institute.

      South Sudan to Embrace Renewables

      The government of South Sudan and the South Sudan Electricity Corporation utility have launched a call for consultants to help define the nation’s renewable energy development program. The utility said consultants must have relevant professional experience, especially in development of private sector, grid-connected solar projects and associated battery storage. The winning bidder will be tasked with defining the tender mechanism for the procurement of clean energy generation capacity. The eight-year-old nation is facing an energy crisis with record low levels of access to electricity and high power prices.

    14. Implications of Rate Design for the Customer-Economics of Behind-the-Meter Storage

      Implications of Rate Design for the Customer-Economics of Behind-the-Meter Storage

      This work provides insights for the two main sources of bill savings for residential and commercial customers – demand charge reductions and arbitrage of energy charges – considering a range of customer profiles and retail rate designs. Storage can reduce monthly demand charges, which are dependent on the customer’s billing demand in kW rather than the amount of energy they consume in kWh, by charging during times of low energy consumption and discharging during peak consumption hours, thereby reducing peak power consumption from the grid. Storage can also reduce electricity bills by charging the storage during low-priced hours and discharging during high-priced hours, taking advantage of price-differentials of time-varying rates. This study considers a variety of demand charge designs and rates that allow for energy arbitrage.

      Commentary: The Military's Next Essential Tool: Battery Storage

      Military bases around the country are developing plans and projects to ensure critical missions are powered in the face of nearly any disruption. Those plans increasingly include grid-scale battery storage, a resource well suited to mission assurance and the critical operations across the DoD footprint. Battery storage can provide immediate, flexible power to military installations while reducing the carbon footprint, fuel demands and recurring costs of existing backup generators. Storage technology has advanced to the point that large-scale installations can provide resilient power without straining defense budgets.
