      New Business Models in Action: Storage Value Growing Rapidly

      One of the most exciting facets of the energy storage industry is the new and innovative business models that are shaking up the century-old utility landscape. From assets that can perform like generation, infrastructure, or load – independently, or even all at once – to the emergence of virtual power plants and aggregated asset business models, the energy storage industry is as dynamic as the technologies that power it.

    4. Trump’s Budget Would Torpedo Obama’s Investments in Climate Change and Clean Energy

      Trump’s Budget Would Torpedo Obama’s Investments in Climate Change and Clean Energy

      From the elimination of major programs to the shifting of scientific priorities, the Trump administration budget proposal unveiled Thursday presents a wholesale repudiation of two main Obama administration objectives: fighting climate change and stoking a revolution in renewable energy.  At the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, $250 million in coastal and ocean grants and programs — many of which help ready communities for rising seas and a warmer, more acidic ocean — would be cut. Satellite programs would be trimmed. The proposed cuts, previously reported on by The Washington Post, have shaken the country’s climate science community and triggered an outcry.

    6. The Compelling Case for Creating a Nation of Microgrids

      The Compelling Case for Creating a Nation of Microgrids

      We so take the electricity infrastructure for granted that we fail to recognize it as a potent public policy tool for economic revitalization. Of all large infrastructures in the United States, nothing is more poised for transformative change, with a host of long- and short-term benefits, as today’s electricity delivery system — not roads, not information technology, not oil, coal and natural gas, not entertainment, not retail, not housing construction, not healthcare.

    7. In Virginia Push for Pumped Storage Hydro, Questions Arise About Viability

      In Virginia Push for Pumped Storage Hydro, Questions Arise About Viability

      In a bid to boost the economy in Virginia’s coalfield region, legislation to be signed by Gov. Terry McAuliffe seeks to spur the development of pumped storage hydro electric power plants using water from abandoned coal mines. While the companion bills in both the Senate and House of Delegates drew virtually unanimous support from both chambers, researchers, coal reclamation experts and even some renewable energy advocates say the idea is still unproven. While pumped storage facilities exist in Virginia and elsewhere, no plant drawing water from abandoned coal mines has been built anywhere in the world.

      Over 50,000 Solar Storage Systems are Now Installed in Germany, Ross Hoare

      Very positive energy storage deployment numbers coming out of Germany. With up to 20,000 new installations last year the effects of decreasing prices and a more mature industry are beginning to show. There is a real demand for increasing self-consumption in Germany and people are increasingly turning to energy storage to help maximise this. The UK has shown it has a solid foundation for developing energy storage, hopefully it won't be long until the UK is matching these figures.

      Despite Technological Advances, Flow Batteries Struggle Against Market Giant Lithium-ion

      Flow batteries have made strides recently in bringing down costs and improving efficiencies, but they are going to have a tough time competing with the entrenched market leader: lithium-ion batteries. More than half of the 1,280 MWh of worldwide battery installations on the power grid since 2010 have been li-ion batteries, according to Department of Energy data. Looking at just 2015 and 2016, that share rises to 60%. In the United States, li-ion has an even bigger market share at 78% since 2010 and 97% since 2015.

      SA power plan: Why so much gas, when storage is so cheap?

      Of all the great initiatives that came out of South Australia’s energy plan on Tuesday, one thing doesn’t appear to make sense: why spend so much money on a peaking gas generator when storage options are clearly cheaper? The big question was over these two sums: The $360 million in government monies set aside for a 250MW gas plant that might rarely be switched on, and the $20 million that treasurer Tom Koutsantonis says could be enough to get a 100MW battery storage facility built by the private sector before summer.

      Big Battery Installations Surge After Gas Leak in California

      The biggest natural gas leak in U.S. history led to a boom in large-scale energy-storage systems, the technology that’s long considered the elusive link to integrating solar and wind power into electric grids. U.S. homes and businesses -- primarily utilities -- installed storage systems with 336 megawatt-hours of capacity in 2016, double the amount from the previous year, according to a study released Tuesday by GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association. That’s about enough batteries to power a city the size of San Diego for an hour.

      Distributed Energy Resources:Two States Make Bold Moves in One Day

      It was a shot heard around the world – or two shots rather – when yesterday New York and Massachusetts each took bold steps to accelerate distributed energy resources. New York ordered actions that begin placing a value on distributed energy resources, a key move in creating the kind of decentralized grid the state is pursuing under its Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) policy. REV envisions utilities acting as platform managers where a wide variety of players, including ‘prosumers’ – such as households with solar panels -- can buy and sell locally produced electricity and related services. It is widely seen as the most dramatic effort to revolutionize the electric sector now underway in the U.S.

      Making Energy Storage So Simple It’s “Boring”

      One of the key technologies needed to transform world energy supplies away from fossil fuels and toward clean, renewable sources is a cheap and reliable way of storing and releasing energy. That will enable intermittent supplies such as solar and wind power, with their variable and often unpredictable outputs, to store energy that’s produced when it’s not needed and to release it when it’s needed most (or can be sold for the best price).
