      New York City’s biggest: Enel X connects grid-scale battery storage in Brooklyn

      A 4.8MW / 16.4MWh battery energy storage system in Brooklyn, supporting utility Con Edisonls grud has begun operation through Enel X and global real estate firm Related Companies. The 16.4MWh front-of-the-meter battery energy storage system deployed by Enel X is the largest in New York City so far, Enel X said in a release today. Hosted by Related Companies at one of its properties in East New York, the batteries will help support Con Edison’s grid in times of peak demand. Con Edison said in July that it is seeking 300MW of energy storage of at least four hours duration.

      New York Permits 316 MW Battery Storage Project, Trading Gas Plant for World’s Largest Battery

      New York’s utility regulator has approved construction on a 316-megawatt battery storage plant, a facility that, if built, would provide emissions-free power to New York City and the surrounding region while replacing a significant portion of the city’s fossil-fueled energy. Known as the Ravenswood Development, the project aims to provide 2,528 MWh of power and would operate during peak hours, with enough storage capacity to discharge 8 hours of power during the hours of highest demand.

      US Storage Industry to Build on Strong Third Quarter with Response to Power Shutoffs

      The United States energy storage sector had it strongest third quarter on record this year, deploying 100.7 megawatts (MW) and 264.6 megawatt-hours (MWh) of storage. The front-of-meter (FTM) market rebounded after its slump with 161 MW deployed, and the residential storage market kept up recent momentum, slightly outpacing second quarter deployment levels to deliver a new record for quarterly residential deployments.

      Cheap at Last, Batteries Are Making a Solar Dream Come True

      The first solar-plus-storage installations started about a decade ago on a small scale in sunny states like California, Hawaii, and Arizona. Now they’re spreading across the country, driven by falling prices of both solar panels and lithium-ion batteries. “This is not just a California, New York, Massachusetts thing,” says Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association, an industry group in Washington. She says more than 30 states have renewable storage on the grid. Utilities have proposed and states have approved 7 gigawatts to be installed by 2030.

      How Alternative Storage Solutions are Breaking into the Lithium-Ion-Dominated Market

      Recent growth in renewable energy, spurred by state mandates, federal tax incentives, and increasingly attractive costs, has shifted attention to the use of energy storage to ensure that variable wind and solar generation reliably serve load and provide ancillary services. In this domain, lithium-ion currently dominates. But some analysts don't see it as economically-efficient enough at scale to fully support the amount of renewable energy expected to come onto the grid, and other options are on the rise, including rail-based gravity systems, hydrogen and flow batteries.

      Utility-Scale Storage Critical to Achieving Massachusetts Carbon Goals: UMass Study

      The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is likely to fall short of its greenhouse gas emission goals if it cannot implement utility-scale storage, according to a new study. More than 70% of the state’s two pumped-hydro storage facilities — with a collective capacity of around 1,800 MW — is currently unutilized due to the lack of market incentives, according to researchers. The lack of utility-scale storage could mean that the state’s grid remains “dirty” even with a high penetration of renewables.

      Encouraging Signs: Interconnection Rules in the Age of Distributed Energy Storage

      As US states work to address and enable the swift growth of distributed energy resources (DERs), including solar and energy storage, the issues surrounding their interconnection to the electric grid require close attention.  Not only to maintain safety and reliability as new technologies connect to the grid, but also to provide a clear, transparent and efficient process for customers, developers and utilities alike. Interconnection procedures are the rules of the road for the grid. Without common rules and predictable processes, gridlock and costly projects can result.
