      New Jersey Reconfigures Solar Policy, Sets Storage Target to Meet 50% Renewables Pledge

      New Jersey is the latest US state to set itself targets for the deployment of energy storage, with newly passed legislation calling for 600MW of the technology within three years. A bill, S2314/A3723, passed last week as one of three sustainability and low carbon measures for the state going forward, calls on the New Jersey Public Utilities Board to analyse the costs and potential benefits of energy storage as well as making revisions for community solar, energy efficiency, peak demand reduction and solar renewable energy certificate programmes.

      Energy Storage Association lauds principles promoted by EEI and partners to advance energy storage growth - Daily Energy Insider

      The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and 32 energy companies and organizations sent a letter to leaders of the Energy Storage Association (ESA) on Wednesday to support its efforts in advancing energy storage and to highlight principles seen as critical to helping the nation achieve a cleaner, more reliable and affordable energy system.  The letter addressed to Kelly Speakes-Backman, ESA president and CEO, and ESA Chairman Praveen Kathpal coincided with ESA’s annual conference taking place in Boston this week. “Today, energy storage is positioning itself as an essential component of the future energy grid: allowing for greater penetration of renewable energy; creating more dynamic generation, transmission, and distribution systems; enhancing the customer experience; and enabling transportation electrification, microgrids, smart grids, and smart communities,” the letter said.

      Baker Expects Short Delay in Offshore Wind Project Selection

      BOSTON — The electrical storage industry got a charge out of Gov. Charlie Baker's "clean peak" proposal that would encourage greater reliance on renewable energy sources during periods of peak electricity demand, and the governor on Wednesday said lawmakers have also been drawn to the idea. "I do think this is something there's a lot of support for here in our Legislature," Baker told the Energy Storage Association at a conference Wednesday in Boston. The assocation has a target of increasing storage capacity by roughly 70 times over the next seven years.

      A new research by Greentech Media (GMT) shows that Australia is leading the global race in energy storage, having installed the most storage technology in the world during 2017, ahead of Germany, the United States and Japan. According to GMT’s “Global Energy Storage: 2017 Year in Review and 2018-22 Outlook” Australia installed an astonishing 246 megawatts (MW) of energy storage power capacity, enough to power almost 400,000 homes at one time, while also taking second place for energy capacity (MWh).

    11. Energy Storage Charges Forward

      Energy Storage Charges Forward

      Use it or lose it. Few products in the world have a shorter shelf life than electricity. That's why pretty much everyone involved in the power sector — from utilities to buyers to startups to state regulators — is putting more energy than ever behind ways to extend it. That's fueling a boom in projects and investments centered on advanced battery chemistries and alternative energy storage approaches, such as hydrogen fuel cells and thermal options that use hot water or ice to conserve power. The holy grail over time is to create a network of resources that can be used in concert with solar and wind farms. The idea is to balance those intermittent renewable resources, help their production output become more predictable and make it easier to integrate distributed power plants into the grid.

      A proposal to install 300 Tesla Powerwall batteries in homes in Lebanon, N.H., is just the latest example of utilities turning to distributed storage, as well as the growing battle to supply these Virtual Power Plants (VPP). Valley News reports Liberty Utilities tapped Tesla to supply the batteries, but the proceeding has grown as SunRun has called for a competitive bidding process to supply the batteries. The Liberty Utilities pilot will eventually be expanded to 1,000 customer homes.

      An alliance announced in March could result in one of the most complete blockchain-based energy trading pilots to date — by adding batteries into the mix. Sonnen’s decision to join the NEMoGrid project in Europe is thought to be the first instance of a battery vendor taking part in a blockchain energy trading experiment. The project will look at the economic and technical impact of electricity trading between households within a region, said Sonnen in a press release.

      Tesla Built the World's Biggest Battery. This One Could be Three Times Bigger

      An energy company wants to build another huge solar farm in the open desert east of Palm Springs — and maybe the world's biggest battery. The Crimson solar project would span 2,500 acres of public lands south of Interstate 10 in eastern Riverside County, at the base of the Mule Mountains. The San Francisco-based developer, Recurrent Energy, has asked the federal government for permission to build 350 megawatts of solar power at the site, and up to 350 megawatts of battery storage. That would be several times larger than the biggest battery currently in existence, a 100-megawatt system that Elon Musk's Tesla Inc. installed in Australia last year.

      “The Energy Storage Association (ESA) anticipates that the inclusion of Chinese battery components in the tariffs, as drafted, will likely represent a negligible impact on the growth of the energy storage market. Nonetheless, ESA is concerned by the battery tariffs announced yesterday because the Administration is creating unnecessary uncertainty for the U.S. energy storage market,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of ESA. “If these tariffs are adopted, the companies and people who plan, build, and service battery storage facilities will be faced with risk that may inhibit storage deployment, even as the U.S. looks to strengthen its energy infrastructure and enhance resilience.”

      The Energy Storage Association (ESA) recently applauded increased federal funding for energy storage in the recently passed omnibus spending bill for fiscal year 2018 while noting the absence of certain measures from the legislation that would have advanced energy storage deployment. The bill includes an approximately $1.5 billion increase in funding for U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) clean energy innovation investments over the prior fiscal year, ESA noted. The Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) received a 32 percent increase to its grid energy storage applied research and development budget, increasing FY2018 investments in grid storage to $41 million as requested previously by House Republicans.

      French utility company EDF has a goal of 100% carbon-free power by 2050. Energy storage will be a big part of achieving that goal. The company already has 5 gigawatts of installed grid-scale storage, but plans to increase that to 15 gigawatts by 2035. Adding the extra 10 gigawatts of storage called for by its new Energy Storage Plan will cost about $10 billion.
