      NYSERDA Targets Retail and Bulk Storage Incentives as State Aims for 3 GW by 2030

      The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority on Monday filed its energy storage implementation plan, which aims to incentivize deployments and help the state meet its 3 GW by 2030 target. The plan targets retail and bulk market storage incentives, allocating $130 million and $150 million toward growth in those sectors, respectively, and proposing the remaining $70 million of a $350 million fund be allocated toward "opportunities that have the greatest potential to build a self-sustaining storage market."

      Cordova's Microgrid Integrates Battery Storage with Hydropower

      Several remote, off-grid communities in Alaska have adopted energy storage systems as part of their microgrids, as they drive to replace expensive diesel generation with renewable wind and solar power. Now, the small town of Cordova, Alaska, U.S., 150 miles (241 km) southeast of Anchorage, Alaska, is pioneering the integration of a Lithium ion energy storage system into a hydropower microgrid. The aim is to recover lost hydro generation that currently must be spilled during transition periods between hydro-only and combined hydro-diesel generation.

    7. Why Shell bought Sonnen: Value is in Behind-the-Meter Potential

      Why Shell bought Sonnen: Value is in Behind-the-Meter Potential

      While many in the industry have been enthusiastic about the potential of residential and other forms of behind-the-meter energy storage for some time, and the technology is ready to go, it’s been difficult to really demonstrate the total value that home storage systems could provide. This year we’re seeing evidence that that has changed. It allows individual users to become more independent of big utilities and to maximize their use of solar energy, but it can also help the grid, by connecting together - or aggregating - dozens, hundreds or even thousands of units at once and providing a sort of combined and controllable single asset to the grid operator or utility.

      US Residential Storage on the Rise in Another Record-Breaking Year

      Energy storage enjoyed another record-breaking year of deployments in the US in 2018, while the residential segment is now “moving beyond early adopters” and into commercial viability, a report from Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables claims. Prepared in collaboration with the national Energy Storage Association, US Energy Storage Monitor 2018 Year-in-Review follows on from Wood Mackenzie’s quarterly editions of the report produced throughout the year. Published at the beginning of this week, the company reports “robust growth” in both front-of-meter and behind-the-meter segments of the market through 2018, with 777MWh of energy storage connected to the grid – an 80% increase over 2017 install figures.

      Utility Pays for Rural Power Lines to be Replaced with Solar-Plus-Storage for Remote Farms

      While the rest of the developed world discusses the prospect of how storage will transform grids and utilities, the state government of Western Australia is getting on with it – by replacing 54 km of ageing power lines and poles with off-grid solar and storage systems at 14 farms. These systems are standalone solar and battery systems that include a back-up diesel generator in case more power is needed. As well as replacing ageing grid infrastructure, the transition reduces the risk of bushfires caused by lightning strikes and of incidents related to the operation of farm machinery near electricity lines.

      US Energy Storage Broke Records in 2018, but the Best Is Yet to Come

      The U.S. energy storage industry delivered record deployments in 2018, driven by a strong fourth quarter for utility-scale projects. But the new achievement for the young industry pales compared to what’s to come: an expected doubling in 2019, followed by a tripling in 2020. Such growth will propel energy storage out of pilot-scale projects and into grid planning conversations around the country. Battery installations for 2018 totaled 311 megawatts and 777 megawatt-hours, according to the new Energy Storage Monitor released by energy research firm Wood Mackenzie, with data from Q4 and 2018 as a whole.

      Department of Energy Announces $31 Million in Funding To Advance H2@Scale

      The U.S. Department of Energy has announced up to $31 million in funding to advance the H2@Scale concept. The focus of H2@Scale is to enable affordable and reliable large-scale hydrogen generation, transport, storage, and utilization in the United States across multiple sectors. By producing hydrogen when power generation exceeds load, electrolyzers can reduce curtailment of renewables and contribute to grid stability. Hydrogen produced from existing baseload (e.g., nuclear) assets can also be stored, distributed, and used as a fuel for multiple applications.
