      CLIMATE: 'Locked-in' Technologies Seen Undermining Emission Curbs

      The world's ability to fight climate change could be thwarted by a problem few people are talking about: technology lock-in. That's the warning in a series of recent papers from university professors and a book claiming that solar, wind and energy storage may have settled too early on specific technologies and thus may not reach levels necessary to prevent catastrophic warming. It's not entirely a new idea but one that is getting renewed attention and sparking heated debate among analysts. One critic called the idea "madness," while others say policymakers need to be thinking more about it to ensure greenhouse gases stay in check.

      As Storms Bear Down, More Homeowners Look to Batteries – Not Generators – for Backup Power | National News | US News

      WHEN A PAIR OF DERECHOS dumped torrential rain and sent tornadoes spiraling across the mid-Atlantic in June 2013, uprooting trees and knocking out power for people in 18 states, Patricia Stevenson pitched in to keep her community running. With the electricity out for five days, neighbors in her rural West Virginia town couldn't use their fridges to keep food cool. They couldn't even power the well pumps. Stevenson, meanwhile, was apparently the only person for miles who had a gas generator. So they turned to her to draw water.

      Scotland’s first utility-scale battery storage facility has been officially opened today, having begun delivering sub-second balancing services to National Grid at the end of June under a bespoke agreement secured before the hotly contested Enhanced Frequency Response (EFR) auction of 2016. The 20MW Broxburn Energy Storage facility was built by RES, which had sold the project to The Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG) in August last year for £20 million. It was the first project to have been acquired by TRIG and RES’ fourth in the UK, with the company now managing the site.

    12. Energy Storage Technology Helps Renew, Stabilize Electric Grid

      Energy Storage Technology Helps Renew, Stabilize Electric Grid

      The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that 17 percent of all electricity produced in the United States in 2017 came from renewable energy sources, including solar, wind and hydroelectric dams. That percentage is expected to keep growing as communities seek ways to improve local air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions linked by EPA scientists to climate change. Unfortunately, renewable energy sources need proper weather conditions to generate power. And those periods of sunshine, wind or heavy wave action occur only intermittently between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. when consumer demand for electricity peaks. That’s where energy storage technology comes in.

      Energy Storage to Play Key Role for California to Reach Target of 100% Zero-Emission Electricity by 2045

      SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 -- The California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) applauds the California State Legislature for passing landmark Senate Bill (SB) 100, making California the largest U.S. state to set such an aggressive zero-emission electricity target. Since 2010, California has procured 1,514 MW of new energy storage capacity to support the grid – by far the most of any state. SB 100 would mandate 100% zero-emission electricity by 2045, with 60% renewables to be achieved by 2030. The bill now awaits the signature of California Governor Jerry Brown, who could sign it into law this week at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. The bill will update SB 350, passed into law in 2015, that requires retail sellers and publicly owned utilities to procure 50% of their electricity from eligible renewable energy resources by 2030. California efforts to date have been so successful that state legislators believe more aggressive targets are achievable.

      Powering a Decentralized Grid

      In Chandler, Ariz., Salt River Project (SRP)—a nonprofit water and energy utility—is kicking off a new endeavor that will deliver power to about 1,000 homes in the Phoenix metropolitan area. But plans don’t involve a natural gas plant or even solar or wind turbine installations. In a sign of the decentralization of the nation’s power grid, this project centers on battery-based energy storage. Per a 20-year power purchase agreement between SRP and The AES Corporation, a 10 MW four-hour-duration energy storage system will inject power into the grid during peak demand periods. Fluence is supplying the Advancion battery storage system, which will be charged by an SRP distribution substation, and is taking the lead on deploying and maintaining the system. Mortenson is the EPC contractor responsible for the balance-of-plant portion of the project.

      Grid Storage batteries Help Electric Vehicles Go Truly Green

      In October 2015 a ruptured well in a natural gas storage facility in Aliso Canyon north of Los Angeles leaked 97,100 tonnes of methane into the atmosphere — making it one of the worst environmental disasters in the US since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill five years earlier. Thousands of people were displaced. The following year utility Southern California Edison decided to invest in batteries to reduce the region’s reliance on gas for electricity — a contract that was won by Tesla. It was a turning point for electric utilities, which have relied on natural gas plants to provide power for over half a century.
