    2. US residential storage capacity sees 317% growth

      US residential storage capacity sees 317% growth

      Utilities in the United States connected almost 217 MW / 524 MWh of energy storage capacity to the grid in 2017, and while those numbers were driven by utility-supply projects, the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) says the strongest growth is seen on the residential side. From 2016 to 2017, residential capacity additions grew by 202% in terms of MW, while non-residential additions grew by a modest 9% and utilities even saw the rate decline slightly, according to SEPA's 2018 Utility Energy Storage Market Snapshot, released last month. In terms of MWh, residential projects tallied an even more impressive growth rate: 317%, compared with 105% in the non-residential sector and 89% growth in utility storage.

      Origin to Build 5MW Virtual Power Plant in Victoria, from Rooftop Solar and Storage

      Origin Energy has revealed plans to establish what it says will be Victoria’s largest virtual power plant – a $20 million cloud-based platform that will tap around 5MW of the battery-stored solar power of up to 650 customers during periods of peak power demand. The $20 million project has the backing of the state Labor government, with $4.5 million in funding announced on Wednesday, as part of its broader investment in microgrid technology in the state.

    4. California’s Energy Storage Rebate Approval a ‘Bipartisan Victory for Local Clean Energy’

      California’s Energy Storage Rebate Approval a ‘Bipartisan Victory for Local Clean Energy’

      Following news of SB100, legislation that would set California on a path to 100% renewables by 2045, the state is also on the brink of setting up a rebate programme for energy storage equipment sales. Senate Bill 700 (SB700), authored by Senator Scott Wiener, would extend the state’s feted SGIP (Self-generation incentive programme) policy to 2024 and make more provisions to include energy storage. SGIP supports the deployment of solar, wind turbines, microturbines, fuel cells, energy storage and other distributed energy technologies by utility customers.

      US Army Installs Largest Battery Storage System

      The project is part of an energy savings performance contract signed between the US Army, infrastructure development firm AECOM and technology provider Lockheed Martin. The 4.25MW/8.5MWh lithium battery energy storage system is expected to help reduce energy demand during peak intervals and reduce the base's energy costs. John Battaglini, a director with Lockheed Martin Energy, said: "The versatility of energy storage is a key enabler for the military's aggressive goals of achieving energy resiliency."

      California Energy Storage Subsidy Extension Passes Assembly

      Today solar and energy storage advocates had their second win in less than 24 hours. Following on the dramatic and narrow passage of a bill to mandate 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045, another bill which may contain one of the keys to making that happen has passed the Assembly. SB 700 will extend the state’s Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) through 2026, which by the estimates of the California Solar and Storage Association (CALSSA) will support the installation of nearly 3 GW of behind-the-meter storage.

      China Added as Much Battery-Storage Capacity in 2018 as all Previous Years Combined

      China isn’t building gigafactories,” says Patrick Hurley, chief technology officer of A123, a lithium-ion battery company. “It is building gigacities.” Gigafactories are named for their capacity to build batteries in tens of gigawatt-hours (GWh) every year, which is about a million times the amount of energy consumed by a typical US household in a day. What Hurley meant by gigacities are complexes that include not just the gigafactory but everything else needed to support it: housing, infrastructure, research and development centers, and universities to train staff.

      Senator Heinrich: A 100% Clean Energy Grid Is 'Completely Doable'

      Democratic Senator Martin Heinrich is the son of a utility lineman, and one of just a few engineers in Congress. Clean energy piqued the New Mexico lawmaker’s interest at an early age, while he was building and racing solar-powered cars in college. But for most of his life, he says, it was hard to imagine a world in which renewables could power more than 20 or 30 percent of the electric grid.

      BTM storage is booming in Ontario - Utility Dive

      Ontario's Global Adjustment (GA) charge is creating a behind-the-meter energy storage boom. Energy storage developers are flocking to Ontario offering large industrial customers tools to cut their demand, which is directly linked to the level of GA charge they have to pay. Industrial customers have had to pay a majority of their electricity bills to the GA charge, which the Ontario government established in 2005.

      South Australia has reaffirmed its love for big Tesla battery projects with an AUD $5 million (USD $3.7 million) grant for a 25-megawatt, 52-megawatt-hour plant. The funding, which is being matched by an equal amount from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), will go towards the AUD $38 million (USD $28 million) cost of developing a Tesla Powerpack-based energy storage system for Infigen Energy. The system will be built next to a 278.5-megawatt wind farm at Lake Bonney and connected to Australia’s National Electricity Market via a substation owned by ElectraNet, Infigen said in a press release.

      Green Energy is Gold for California, US

      I am a physicist, and an energy and sustainability science researcher, and I live in California because of its penchant for not just setting but actually achieving big goals and adopting bold visions others may consider too ambitious. What California proposes, we research, debate and then accomplish. In fact, we often exceed the goals skeptics have deemed unmeetable. This is why I believe that California should — and ultimately will — pass into law the “100 Percent Clean Energy Act” (Senate Bill 100), which would establish a bold goal of 100 percent clean, zero-carbon electricity by 2045.
