      Xcel Energy, United Power Among Utilities Using Batteries

      For longtime proponents of renewable energy, figuring out how to keep the lights on when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine has been a key challenge. Harnessing the excess energy from a turbine or solar panel to use later was the “holy grail” or “golden key,” as one Colorado utility executive calls it.

      Enel and EnergyNest Explore Thermal Energy Storage Opportunities

      Among innovative technology providers developing a thermal energy storage system, Norway-based cleantech company EnergyNest is currently one of the partners selected by multinational energy provider Enel for the analysis of the benefits and impacts of the integration of its technology in one of Enel’s numerous power generation assets. According to EnergyNest, impressive economic and climate-relevant figures could be achieved by the company’s latest thermal energy storage technology when integrated in full-scale: annual CO2 reduction of up to 45,000 tons, 14 million liters of fuel oil saved per year and project payback in less than three years.

      ARENA Commissions 30-MW Energy Storage System in Victoria

      The Ballarat Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), currently in the final testing phase, is the first facility of its kind in the state. Owned by AusNet Services and operated by EnergyAustralia, the facility is capable of powering more than 20,000 homes for an hour of critical peak demand before being recharged. It is located at AusNet Services' Ballarat terminal substation. A consortium led by Downer Spotless completed the battery system with technology provider Fluence serving as a supplier.

      BYD’s First Energy Storage Project in Poland Begins Operations

      BYD has started up its first grid-scale energy storage project in Poland with the official opening of its new 1.26MW/2.52MWh energy storage facility. The system, which was shipped into Poland in May, came online just a few months later in September, highlighting just how quickly large-scale stationary storage deployments can be brought online. The installation is the first in the Polish market and will be operated in partnership with ML System S.A.

      World's Largest Microgrid Moves One Step Closer In Palau

      Tucked away in the Micronesia region of the Pacific Ocean is the small Republic of Palau, boasting a population of just over 20,000. The country will nevertheless soon be home to what is believed to be the world’s largest microgrid consisting of solar, diesel, and energy storage, representing at least 45% of the island nation’s total demand. While the microgrid has been in development for some time, the Republic of Palau this week announced the signing of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with ENGIE EPS, a worldwide microgrid and energy storage pioneer which will complete the project.

      Clean Energy Leaders Meet in Charlotte to Tout Capacity, Demand for Energy Storage

      North Carolina was a hotbed of energy storage activity in 2016. So much so that the national trade association - the Energy Storage Association (ESA) - held its annual conference in Charlotte and the NC Sustainable Energy Association (NCSEA) convened its first Energy Storage Working Group. There was great promise to open the market to more energy storage in North Carolina. And now they’re back.

      Chatterjee Pushes Grid Operators to Design Market Products for Storage

      Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Neil Chatterjee on Tuesday called on regional grid operators to design new market rules that allow batteries to provide grid services as part of a wide-ranging address on the future of energy storage. Grid operators have grappled for years with how to design rules "particularly suited to storage," Chatterjee told an industry conference in Washington, but there has been "little momentum" in recent years on market products like frequency response that could allow batteries to grow.

      Duke Energy Plans New Microgrid and $500M Energy Storage Investment

      Duke Energy has proposed a microgrid to serve the western North Carolina town of Hot Springs as part of a larger plan that includes a $500 million investment in energy storage over 15 years. The solar-storage microgrid will bolster electric reliability for the mountainous town served only by a 10-mile, 22.86-kV feeder line, said Zachary Kuznar, Duke Energy’s director, CHP, microgrid and energy storage development.

      LONG BEACH, Calif., Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric, the global specialist in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced an agreement to design, engineer and build a new microgrid that will enable critical energy resilience at the Port of Long Beach in the city of Long Beach, California. Schneider Electric will create a microgrid technology demonstration which will include an integrated system of distributed energy resources (DER) and microgrid controls, enabling added resilience via long-term islanding at the port's critical response facility, the Joint Command and Control Center (JCCC), which functions as the port's hub for security.

      Energy Storage Technologies Expected to Boost mid-Atlantic Market as Clean, Renewable Energy Demand Increases

      WASHINGTON, Oct. 10, 2018 -- More than 30 million Americans in the mid-Atlantic have started to see the benefits from energy storage systems operating in the region. As the country continues to expect resilient, reliable and cleaner energy, there is a need for energy storage to deliver value to the electric grid to support customers' demands. In addition, large and independent power producers have seen energy storage costs drop by up to 70 percent in the past few years according to the Energy Storage Association (ESA).

    11. DOE Energy Storage Grants Look to the Day When Renewables Rule the Grid

      DOE Energy Storage Grants Look to the Day When Renewables Rule the Grid

      As renewable penetration grows, the need for energy storage grows as well. However, existing storage technologies may not be able to meet that need. A Department of Energy (DOE) grant program aims to address that problem by trading efficiency for low cost. Existing storage technologies fall short in terms of duration. Lithium-ion batteries, which have captured about 90% of the energy storage market, can economically run for about four hours. Pumped hydro storage, which accounts for the most energy storage today in terms of capacity, can generate power by releasing water from storage reservoirs for up to 20 hours under certain conditions.

    12. New York to Invest (another) $40 Million in Energy Storage Deployment

      New York to Invest (another) $40 Million in Energy Storage Deployment

      In continued pursuit of his state’s 50% renewable by 2030 and 1,500 MW of energy storage by 2025, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo (D) has announced that $40 million will be made available to solar projects that integrate energy storage. Like CPS Energy earlier this week, New York is recognizing the necessity of expansive energy storage coverage to shift solar energy’s availability to times of peak demand, outlining in a release that the storage will be used for that goal. This reasoning is likely also behind Gov. Cuomo’s unique battery storage goal, first unveiled in his 2018 State of the State address this past January.

      Nevada Primed for up to a Gigawatt of Energy Storage

      We know energy storage is coming. The question is: How much and how fast? Tesla showed us that they’d rather build cars versus energy storage installations, and that makes sense since more than 90% of their revenue is from cars. And Bloomberg recently reminded us that the whole of the industry is in a situation of greater demand than supply. Nonetheless, the potential is there and the manufacturing capacity is growing immensely.
