      Highview Power and Encore Renewable Energy to Co-Develop the First Long Duration, Liquid Air Energy Storage System in the United States | Highview Power

      Highview Power Storage, Inc. and Encore Renewable Energy today jointly announced plans to develop the United States’ first long duration, liquid air energy storage system. This facility will be a minimum of 50MW, provide in excess of eight hours of storage (400MWh) and will be located in northern Vermont. The project is the first of many utility-scale, liquid air energy storage projects that Highview Power plans to develop across the United States to help scale up renewable energy deployment. The Vermont facility will contribute to resolving the longstanding energy transmission challenges surrounding the state’s Sheffield-Highgate Export Interface (SHEI) and enable the efficient transport of excess power from renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power to help integrate them on the power grid.

      CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman’s Statement on Tax Provisions

      “We are disappointed in the tax provisions announced this morning that omitted a provision for stand-alone energy storage,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the U.S. Energy Storage Association. “This was a clear opportunity for Congress to address the urgent challenges of climate change and to support clean energy innovation. The Energy Storage Incentive and Deployment Act of 2019 is a bipartisan measure to level the playing field for energy storage technologies that enable a more resilient, efficient and sustainable grid.”

      U.S. Energy Storage Association Issues New Safety Resource for Storage Businesses Nationwide

      The U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) today published U.S. Energy Storage Operational Safety Guidelines, which provides energy storage businesses and users a compendium of codes, standards, and additional guidelines to plan for and mitigate wide-ranging potential operational hazards.  

      This is the latest resource to come from ESA’s years-long effort to advance industry safety strategies, which culminated in the April 2019 announcement of an Energy Storage Corporate Responsibility Initiative (CRI) Task Force and Corporate Responsibility Pledge.  Currently, nearly 60 signatories have taken the safety and responsibility pledge, including dozens of companies that have contributed plans and guidelines to this latest safety and planning guide.

      California Moves to Boost Storage to Combat Safety-Driven Power Shutoffs

      California regulators are proposing to authorize an annual collection of $166 million from ratepayers from 2020 through 2024 to fund the state’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) — and 85% of that budget will be allocated to energy storage technologies, in a bid to help communities that experience frequent public safety power shut-offs. The CPUC's proposed decision would also expand the parameters of SGIP to benefit customers in high fire-threat areas.

      Congress Has a Chance to Pass Meaningful Energy Legislation

      At a time of nearly unprecedented legislative gridlock on Capitol Hill, there are too few policies that have the bipartisan support and national importance necessary to move through Congress. But one of those policies has received the backing of key congressional constituencies and could revolutionize the energy grid as we know it. This Op/Ed from Kelly Speakes-Backman and Heather Reams describes the need for a stand-alone storage investment tax credit.

      Why Energy Storage is an Essential Ingredient in Grid Modernization

      If the energy industry was a solar system, energy storage might very well be the sun. At least, that’s the perspective of Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association (ESA) and featured luminary speaker at DISTRIBUTECH International next month in San Antonio, Texas. Speakes-Backman recently talked with POWERGRID about her work at the ESA and where she sees the future of energy storage.

    10. Nevada Regulators Approve NV Energy Plan for 1,190 MW Solar, 590 MW Storage

      Nevada Regulators Approve NV Energy Plan for 1,190 MW Solar, 590 MW Storage

      The Nevada Public Utilities Commission on Dec. 4 approved NV Energy's Integrated Resource Plan, including three solar projects totaling 1,190 MW and 590 MW of energy storage capacity. All of the new projects will be located in southern Nevada and are planned to be online by 2024. The utility last year committed to doubling its renewable energy resources by 2023 and says it is on track to meet that goal. The largest of the projects is Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners' Gemini solar+storage project. The company says it is believed to be one of the largest projects of its kind globally, with capital expenditures expected to top $1 billion.

      New York Permits 316 MW Battery Storage Project, Trading Gas Plant for World’s Largest Battery

      New York’s utility regulator has approved construction on a 316-megawatt battery storage plant, a facility that, if built, would provide emissions-free power to New York City and the surrounding region while replacing a significant portion of the city’s fossil-fueled energy. Known as the Ravenswood Development, the project aims to provide 2,528 MWh of power and would operate during peak hours, with enough storage capacity to discharge 8 hours of power during the hours of highest demand.

      US Storage Industry to Build on Strong Third Quarter with Response to Power Shutoffs

      The United States energy storage sector had it strongest third quarter on record this year, deploying 100.7 megawatts (MW) and 264.6 megawatt-hours (MWh) of storage. The front-of-meter (FTM) market rebounded after its slump with 161 MW deployed, and the residential storage market kept up recent momentum, slightly outpacing second quarter deployment levels to deliver a new record for quarterly residential deployments.

      Cheap at Last, Batteries Are Making a Solar Dream Come True

      The first solar-plus-storage installations started about a decade ago on a small scale in sunny states like California, Hawaii, and Arizona. Now they’re spreading across the country, driven by falling prices of both solar panels and lithium-ion batteries. “This is not just a California, New York, Massachusetts thing,” says Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association, an industry group in Washington. She says more than 30 states have renewable storage on the grid. Utilities have proposed and states have approved 7 gigawatts to be installed by 2030.
