    3. New Water-Based Battery Offers Large-Scale Energy Storage

      New Water-Based Battery Offers Large-Scale Energy Storage

      Stanford researchers have developed a water-based battery that could provide a cheap way to store wind or solar energy generated when the sun is shining and wind is blowing so it can be fed back into the electric grid and be redistributed when demand is high. The prototype manganese-hydrogen battery, reported April 30 in Nature Energy, stands just three inches tall and generates a mere 20 milliwatt hours of electricity, which is on par with the energy levels of LED flashlights that hang on a key ring. Despite the prototype’s diminutive output, the researchers are confident they can scale up this table-top technology to an industrial-grade system that could charge and recharge up to 10,000 times, creating a grid-scale battery with a useful lifespan well in excess of a decade.

      sonnen-Engie Partner up in France to Sell Solar-plus-Storage Through 'Shared vision'

      French utility Engie and German energy storage firm sonnen have signed a strategtic partnership to offer a package of solar and energy storage to households in France. The ‘My Power’ package is already available and Engie has identified 3 million customers in France living in detached houses that are conducive to using the solar-storage combination. Moreover, customers in southern France could power close to 100% (up to 95%) of their electricity needs through the package in the summer months between May and September, with northern customers able to generate around two thirds of their power demand. Sonnen spokesman Mathias Bloch emailed Energy-Storage.News this week to confirm reports of the deal which had appeared in various news outlets.

      NY Latest Renewables RFP to Spur $1.5B Investment

      New York announced its second large-scale renewables solicitation on Wednesday. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) estimated that it could drive up to $1.5 billion in green energy investments. The bids are expected to support the generation of 1.5 million MWh annually — roughly the annual energy consumption of 200,000 homes — contributing to the state's goal of reaching 50% renewable energy by 2030.

      Colorado Senate Approves Second Storage Bill, Waits on House

      The Colorado Senate on Monday voted 26-9 on third reading to approve HB18-1270, which directs the development of mechanisms to enable investor-owned utilities to acquire energy storage systems, while restricting their size to 15 MW. Because amendments were added on the floor, it will need to be approved again by the House. The bill would direct state regulators to "establish mechanisms" for investor-owned electric utilities to procure energy storage systems. Some criteria would need to be satisfied, however.

      NextEra Moves Deeper into Solar Power and Solar Plus Storage

      While power sector holdouts such as FirstEnergy get headlines by pushing for disingenuous regulatory changes in a vain attempt to make the future look like the past, many U.S. power companies are seeing the light in the low and predictable costs of large-scale wind and solar. One of the leaders in this regard is Florida power company NextEra Energy. The company’s Q1 2018 results show NextEra building not only large amounts of solar both through generation arm NextEra Energy Resources and utility Florida Power and Light, but also beginning to deploy large-scale energy storage through both companies.

      Massachusetts Is Staring Down a Duck Curve of Its Own. Storage Could Help

      After a barrage of wicked nor'easters this winter, Massachusetts residents probably aren't worried about having too much sun — but they should be. Over in Hawaii, California and Arizona, middaysolargeneration has begun to cause major swings in the balance of supply and demand on the grid. The resulting “duck curve” has become emblematic of the logistical challenges involved in massive renewables adoption. As it turns out, this duck infestation is migrating from the sunny, palm-lined enclaves of Venice Beach and Scottsdale to the Bay State.

      ESA Lays out the Path for 35 GW of Energy Storage by 2025

      Most of us are solar power professionals, for example we’re reading pv magazine. However, for those of us who haven’t already, it’s probably time to start paying attention to how energy storage will affect our business – because the largest players in our field have been modeling large scale energy storage projects for at least three years. The Energy Storage Association (ESA) has been watching also – and they’ve articulated their thoughts in a white paper: 35X25: A Vision for Energy Storage. In this document, focused on the years between now and 2025, the ESA describes market drivers for growth, how to value energy storage, where and how it expects the growth to happen and what we have to continue to do in order to make this real.

      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.
