      Trump Admin. Outlines Global Solar Plan: 10 Terawatts By 2030

      President Trump talks a great game when it comes to US coal miners and coal jobs but he sure is walking the renewables walk. The latest item in the flood of renewable energy news pouring from the Energy Department since Inauguration Day is a new study that charts a do-able path for global energy producers to harvest 5-10 terawatts of solar power by 2030. That’s quite a big feat considering that the current scope of global solar generation is still measured in gigawatts, but then again President Trump is known to be a huge fan of the bigly.

      Maryland's Energy Storage Tax Credit: Gaining Momentum Across America?

      The General Assembly of Maryland just passed a bill that would provide a 30% tax credit to those who chose to utilize energy storage technology, making it the first state in the country to pass such legislation. The funds provided by the bill would last from 2018 to 2022. The bill includes a cap of $5,000 for residential storage projects, while for commercial projects, the cap is set at $75,000. The state government has allocated a total of $750,000 per year to be used in credits.

      Inside GE and SoCal Edison's First-of-a-Kind Hybrid Peaker Plant With Batteries and Gas Turbines

      Southern California Edison and General Electric have taken a grid edge concept -- integrating natural gas-fired turbines and batteries -- and turned it into two working models. Last month, SCE started operations at the second of two of its new hybrid electric gas turbine (EGT) units -- GE’s term for its combination of turbines, batteries and power controls installed at the two sites. Each peaker plant is in the 50-megawatt range, and is outfitted with a set of batteries capable of providing 10 megawatts and 4 megawatt-hours of power.

      ANDOVER, Mass. -- At the end of a heavily wooded, sparse industrial park here sits the North American headquarters and R&D center for Schneider Electric, which earlier this month unveiled its own campus power microgrid. The microgrid for the global energy management conglomerate is expected to produce 520,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year, or 10% of Schneider Electric's power needs. It's also expected to reduce its energy costs by 20%.

      The energy storage market will expand dramatically in the coming years from an annual installation size of 6 gigawatts in 2017 to more than 40 by 2021. In addition, an IMS Research report predicts that the market for storing energy from solar panels will go from $200 million in 2012 to nearly $19 billion by the end of this year. This is especially impactful for residential solar, which has seen consistent growth in the past few years and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.
