    2. Pumping Up Potential

      Pumping Up Potential

      Pumped storage accounts for over 94% of installed global energy storage capacity, rightfully deserving the accolade of being the world’s ‘water battery’. The existing 161,000MW of pumped storage capacity supports power grid stability, with the International Hydropower Association estimating that total storage is in the region of 9000GWh. A recent working paper has been produced to help stimulate timely discussion among policy makers and energy system stakeholders about the increasingly important role of pumped storage in the clean energy transition. The paper provides an assessment of the technology’s current status as well as tracing its historical roots.

    4. Moving Beyond 'Rules of Thumb' for Smart, Cost Effective Storage Deployment

      Moving Beyond 'Rules of Thumb' for Smart, Cost Effective Storage Deployment

      Energy storage is progressing by leaps and bounds as a potentially transformative resource for the power sector. Recent utility-scale storage announcements come on the heels of a reports highlighting the steep drop in the cost of storage. A more holistic, analytically informed approach to storage deployment — better insight into its specific system benefits and more robust approaches to assigning its capacity value, among other recommendations discussed herein — will ease growing pains and maximize value as the U.S. storage industry expands dramatically over the next few years.

    6. Southern California Edison Picks 195MW Battery Portfolio in Place of Puente Gas Plant

      Southern California Edison Picks 195MW Battery Portfolio in Place of Puente Gas Plant

      Utility Southern California Edison selected a roster of energy storage projects to supply local capacity needs around the coastal city of Oxnard, instead of the 262-megawatt natural-gas peaker plant it had chosen previously. If regulators give their approval, Strata Solar will build and own a 100-megawatt/400-megawatt-hour system in Oxnard, and dispatch it on behalf of SCE. This system will tie for largest lithium-ion battery in the world when it comes online in December 2020.

      Microgrid Maintains Power Supply During Emergency Simulation

      The Bronzeville Community Microgrid can keep power flowing in an emergency, ComEd recently announced after conducting a test. The “simulated islanding” test checked the resiliency of the microgrid by mimicking events that have the potential to affect power delivery, including weather calamities,  cyber attacks and acts of terrorism. The tests ComEd conducted demonstrated the microgrid’s ability to provide power in island mode while drawing upon distributed energy resources (DER), including battery energy storage and solar photovoltaic PV, to serve customers.

      Duke, Eversource Commit to Create Energy Storage Safety Standards

      Duke Energy, Eversource and 25 other energy companies signed an energy storage corporate responsibility pledge and committed to participate in a taskforce to optimize safety standards, according to an announcement by the Energy Storage Association on Thursday. The pledge prioritizes safety for energy storage resource deployment, integration, and operation. Utilities and third-party storage developers pledged to contribute storage experts to a taskforce focused on responsible supply chain practices, potential operational hazards, end-of-life, and recycling in the industry. The ESA formally launched its corporate responsibility initiative for the industry at its annual conference in Phoenix, Arizona last week.

      Battery Storage Backers Energized by Prospect of New Tax Credit

      Battery and other energy storage companies are seeing their best shot in years at getting an investment tax credit that would kick their industry and renewable energy into higher gear. The Democratic-controlled House is considering the idea as it looks at how to take action on climate change. And in the Republican-controlled Senate, there’s a new campaign afoot for an energy storage investment tax credit, led by Sens. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.).

    10. Microgrids at Ontario Technology Park to Offer Model for Energy Sharing

      Microgrids at Ontario Technology Park to Offer Model for Energy Sharing

      Many tend to think of a microgrid as an enclosed campus with generation, energy storage and a resource management system, all islandable from the grid. But that thinking is limited. Microgrids also can involve small commercial communities, as planned by Canadian company Stantec, projects that right-size distributed energy resources so that an entire community benefits rather than just the host facility.

    11. Sterling Light Storage Units Mark Milestone

      Sterling Light Storage Units Mark Milestone

      The Sterling Municipal Light Department is marking a major milestone related to the department’s two energy storage systems. In March, SMLD celebrated over $1 million in avoided costs to the light department, thanks to the two systems. SMLD’s first energy storage system, a 2-megawatt, 3.9-megawatt-hour utility scale battery from NEC Energy Solutions, was the first of its kind in Massachusetts when it went online in December 2016. The project was designed to provide Sterling with up to 12 days of emergency backup power to critical public facilities during severe weather events, as well as lower utility costs by dispatching the battery during peak load periods.

    13. California’s Record-Setting Virtual Power Plant

      California’s Record-Setting Virtual Power Plant

      In its first year of operation, a record-setting virtual power plant in California has delivered more than 2 gigawatt-hours to the grid. The VPP is part of massive grid modernization undertaken by Southern California Edison, which provides power to 15 million people across a 50,000-square-mile swath of the state. Designed and operated by AMS and owned by Macquarie Capital, the virtual power plant is tasked to reduce peak demand in the Los Angeles Basin by installing battery storage systems behind the meter at properties of SCE’s commercial customers. The project’s first phase (11 megawatts/60 megawatt-hours) went into operation last year.

    17. A Brighter Future: Why Energy Storage Belongs in the Investment Tax Credit

      A Brighter Future: Why Energy Storage Belongs in the Investment Tax Credit

      Renewable energy has come a long way in the last decade and that's good for all of us. But a successful clean energy market and smart power grid can only go as far as advances in energy storage can take us. With that in mind, U.S. Sens. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., and Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., introduced legislation Thursday that would expand the investment tax credit (ITC) to include standalone energy storage investments. As it is now, only a small subset of energy storage projects co-located with solar are eligible.
