    1. Ultra-Fast Chargers Come To California

      Ultra-Fast Chargers Come To California

      How many cars sold in America today can take full advantage of all the power available from a 350 kW ultra fast charger? If you said “none,” go to the head of the class. But that doesn’t mean such vehicles won’t be on the road soon. The Porsche Taycan will be arriving shortly. At the San Francisco Premium Outlets electric car drivers will now find 2 ultra-fast 350 kW chargers and 8 super-fast chargers (150 kW). They have been installed by Electrify America as part of the agreement it signed with the state of California to settle claims arising from its diesel cheating scandal.

    2. Canada Battery Maker Says Flow Storage Costs to Tumble by Half

      Canada Battery Maker Says Flow Storage Costs to Tumble by Half

      CellCube Energy Storage Systems Inc., a Canada-listed maker of batteries that can last for as long as two decades, said the cost of its technology may halve within four years, potentially boosting its uptake over lithium-ion units. Costs of its vanadium redox flow battery units, which can discharge power for four hours, will decline to $150 per kilowatt hour from $300, President Stefan Schauss said in a phone interview from Toronto this month. Batteries with eight hours of duration will slump to $100 from $200, he said.

      Molten Metal Energy Storage For Future Maritime Propulsion

      The comparatively short sailing distances encountered along navigable inland waterways, combined with stops at navigation locks, enhances the attractiveness of using battery propulsion technology. While the popular electrochemical batteries involve lithium technology and chemical acid technology, other competing batteries operate at elevated temperatures utilizing molten metal energy storage.

      Federation of Microgrids Planned in Australia by Sempra's PXiSe

      Sempra subsidiary PXiSE Energy Solutions plans to create a federation of microgrids to boost renewable energy in remote Australian towns under a new agreement with utility Horizon Power. With its distributed energy resource management (DERM) system the company says it can get past curtailment and power quality issues to boost the percentage of renewables to 50 percent and above. The company’s DERM system networks various distributed energy resources together, with the ability to adjust to grid challenges very quickly.

      EU’s Electricity Market Revamp Hailed as ‘Game-Changer’ for Clean Energy

      A recent agreement to reform Europe’s electricity market has enshrined into EU law the unprecedented right of consumers to produce, sell and share their own electricity in newly-defined “citizen energy communities”. The move is seen by energy policy enthusiasts in Brussels as a potential turning point for the mass deployment of small-scale renewables like solar power.

      Electric Bus Batteries Used To Store Solar Energy

      Volvo Buses is taking part in a research project whereby used electric bus batteries get a second lease of life as solar energy storage units. The project, partnering with Göteborg Energi, Riksbyggen, and Johanneberg Science Park, sees used bus batteries installed in apartment blocks that have their own solar electricity production. The reuse and recycling of batteries is a key issue as increasing numbers of cities plan transition to electrically powered transport.

      Enel, through its Enel X energy services division, has won a contract to deploy energy storage to cut energy costs for US packaging producer Berry Global. The behind-the-meter lithium ion battery installations, totalling 5MW/10MWh, will provide the Berry Global with 20% to 30% energy bill savings annually. Under the terms of the agreement, Enel X will purchase, install and operate four battery systems for Berry Global at its Ontario operations in Canada. The batteries will be operational by summer 2019.

      Malta, a Massachusetts-based company, has raised $26m (£21m) from Breakthrough Energy Ventures, which counts the Amazon and Microsoft founders among its investors. The company was set up last year and hopes to be able to store electricity from solar and other renewable sources using an elaborate system that stores the energy as extreme heat and cold. It has now been spun off from X, the experimental arm of Google’s parent company Alphabet.

      ESA applauds New York Adoption of Energy Storage Target

      New York went all in on energy storage last week, announcing a goal of 3,000 megawatts deployed by 2030 – a goal which earned praise from the Energy Storage Association. New York’s move gives the state the largest energy storage target in the United States to date. Proponents say this will make the state’s grid more resilient and efficient and its energy more sustainable. It also builds on a stated goal of New York’s regulators to integrate energy storage at scale, weaving it into the greater market.

      New Hampshire Storage Program Will Pair Batteries with Time-of-use Rates

      A New Hampshire energy storage pilot program will pair in-home batteries with time-of-use rates to try to shave peak loads and save customers money. The company will install 200 Tesla batteries and then have 12 months to show it can accurately manage the system to reduce its peak loads at no added cost to customers. The program would be the first of its kind in the U.S. to use a three-tiered time-of-use rate structure. A second phase would add another 300 participants with a “bring your own device” option that has drawn the interest of energy storage companies, some of which had hoped to be involved in the program sooner.

      NY's Energy Storage Target: It's the Journey, not the Destination, Stakeholders Say

      The New York Public Service Commission's order last week creating a 3 GW by 2030 energy storage target identified a destination on the state's transformation of its energy sector, but did not delineate every road on route to that goal. The PSC order did not provide details on how some of the goals will be achieved or on issues such as the apportionment of some funds. In a wider context, there are questions about how the storage goal will mesh with the wholesale power market rules of the New York Independent System Operator. In addition, there are pending permitting issues in New York City that could affect the anticipated build-out of energy storage facilities there.

      Mexico energy authorities have been developing an energy storage strategy to balance out the country’s recent surge in solar power plants. What appears to be the first and largest battery to come online, though, does something else entirely. The 12-megawatt/12-megawatt-hour device switched on in October to deliver reliability and power quality at a 130-megawatt microgrid serving an automotive factory campus in Monterrey. The device handles spinning reserve, voltage support and frequency for the fully self-contained electrical system.
