    1. GE Bundles Battery Storage with Gas Turbines

      GE Bundles Battery Storage with Gas Turbines

      General Electric engineers developed a battery storage with turbine power generation technology the company says works like a hybrid car, making energy more available on the grid when it's needed. According to GE, the technology combines gas turbine peakers and batteries wrapped in a single package with power-management software. “With a hybrid gas turbine, you don’t have to run the turbine at all,” says Brian Gutknecht, chief marketing officer for GE Power. “If power is called for, batteries can provide immediate power. Meanwhile, you can start up the gas turbine.”

    2. 75% Cut in U.S. Research Money Could Lead to Chinese Battery Raid

      75% Cut in U.S. Research Money Could Lead to Chinese Battery Raid

      Leading U.S. battery researchers say a proposed 75% cut in federal funding could set back U.S. hopes to dominate the future of batteries and electric cars, and lead to a raid of U.S. talent by China and others in the technological race. The mood is somber this week at an annual conference in Washington, DC, where hundreds of battery researchers from universities and U.S. federal labs are presenting their latest findings, and justifying millions of dollars in U.S. government funding toward the creation of super-batteries for electric cars and the grid. In interviews, researchers said Congress will probably largely ignore President Donald Trump's proposal, and restore much of the 2018 funding. But, given the intensity of competition for industries expected to be worth hundreds of billions of dollars in future sales, they said the best ideas could be wooed away by China, Japan, South Korea or others.

    5. Nevada Just Became the Most Exciting State for Energy Storage Policy

      Nevada Just Became the Most Exciting State for Energy Storage Policy

      Nevada jumped to the vanguard of energy storage policy after passing a revision to its state renewable energy targets. In the past week, state legislators deputized the Public Utilities Commission to investigate whether it is in the public interest to require an energy storage procurement by utilities. The PUC has until October 1, 2018 to make that decision, based on a wide variety of criteria. That makes it the fourth state to set in motion a storage target, a policy that contributed significantly to the growth of the technology in California.

      Maryland, Hawaii Turn to Storage Incentives as State Markets Gain Momentum

      Nevada earlier this month became the fourth state to adopt an energy storage incentive. The Silver State joins California, New Jersey and Maryland, which in April passed a bill creating a 30% tax credit for energy storage devices, as the only states to have put storage incentives in place. And at least two other states, Hawaii and Massachusetts, are moving toward energy storage incentives.

      Battery Storage: The Next Disruptive Technology in the Power Sector

      Storage prices are dropping much faster than anyone expected, due to the growing market for consumer electronics and demand for electric vehicles (EVs). Major players in Asia, Europe, and the United States are all scaling up lithium-ion manufacturing to serve EV and other power applications. No surprise, then, that battery-pack costs are down to less than $230 per kilowatt-hour in 2016, compared with almost $1,000 per kilowatt-hour in 2010.

      The US state of California’s Senate has approved a bill that would provide rebates to customers for the purchase of energy storage systems, bringing the legislation a step closer to introduction. The bill, SB 700, was introduced by Democratic Senator Scott Wiener, along with SB 71, which is a mandate for new buildings to include rooftop solar in their construction. Both passed the Senate by a 23-13 vote and are now to be passed over to the State Assembly for consideration.

      How Can Tucson Electric Get Solar + Storage for 4.5¢/kWh?

      Tucson Electric Power’s recently signed power purchase agreement for a solar-plus-storage project has been hailed for its low price, but it also signals a solution that could become more common as renewable energy grid integration problems grow. TEP declined to reveal the exact pricing, but the all-in cost for the solar-plus-storage project is “significantly less than $0.045/kWh over 20 years,” said Carmine Tilghman, senior director for energy supply at TEP. And, at under 3¢s/kWh, he says he believes the solar portion of the PPA is “the lowest price recorded in the U.S.”
