      Energy Storage Association sees storage as critical to future reliability and resiliency in U.S. grid - Daily Energy Insider

      With the release of a white paper laying out a pathway for the United States to reach 35 gigawatts (GW) of energy storage systems by 2025, the Energy Storage Association is driving forward the notion that energy storage can — and should — play a sizeable part in the nation’s grid. At the helm of this effort is ESA CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman, who spoke with Daily Energy Insider this week regarding her thoughts on national policy, ambitious new energy plans, and where technology and utilities fit into the picture. Speakes-Backman is the organization’s first CEO, having taken the position in July, but her plans have already proven to have great aspirations.

      As Grid Modernization Accelerates, Which States are in the Lead, and Why?

      Grid modernization is not just a New York-California issue anymore. Committed and proposed expenditures are accelerating into the billions across the country, with no sign of a slowdown in sight. The grid's vulnerability to increasingly extreme weather and its consequences is apparent to everybody, and it must be strengthened, Centerpoint Energy CEO Scott Prochazka said. "Electricity is about 5% of GDP, but it is the first 5% because reliable energy supports every other aspect of the economy," he noted.

    5. The 10 Stories That Defined Energy Storage in 2017

      The 10 Stories That Defined Energy Storage in 2017

      The industry stepped up with two major, high-speed deployments to resolve grid emergencies. Utility-scale projects got bigger and longer lasting. Major international conglomerates bought up storage startups. And all the major solar developers started getting into the game. Much of the action remained at the pilot stage. But some projects showed that storage economics already make sense without subsidies, grants or other interventions -- in the right circumstances, of course.

      Microgrids and Energy Storage Get New Boost in Massachusetts

      The Boston City Council and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities last week each separately took action that opens the door toward more microgrids and energy storage in the state. The city council approved a proposal (Docket 0340) on Wednesday to send a home rule petition to the state legislature that would clear the way for the next step in building a microgrid at the Raymond L. Flynn marine park.

      Data Shows Solid Growth for Energy Storage Market

      GTM Research provides quarterly data from monitoring energy storage capacity in the United States. According to the data, the U.S. deployed 50.4 MWh of energy storage in Q2 2017, up 6% year-over-year. Behind-the-meter deployments rose 140% quarter-over-quarter. The residential market rose 89% from Q1 2017 the data shows, while the non-residential market grew 151% from Q1 2017. A major portion of these increases resulted from accelerated pace of energy storage capacity growth in both California and Hawaii. Lithium-ion batteries dominated the energy storage market for the eleventh straight quarter, holding 94.2% of the market in Q2 2017.

      New York Governor Approves Energy Storage Target, Months After the Bill Passed

      New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill Nov. 29 to create a statewide energystoragetarget, more than five months after it unanimously passed the legislature. Depending on how it's executed, the target could reduce regulatory barriers to storage development and spur adoption of this technology, which stands to help New York's effort to increase clean energy and efficient grid usage. "It really creates an important market," said William Acker, executive director of the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium. "It lets industry know that New York State is serious about opening and creating a market for energy storage in the state."

      PG&E Expands Commitment to Energy Storage

      SAN FRANCISCO--Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) strengthened its commitment to a clean energy future with the presentation of six energy storage contracts totaling 165 megawatts (MW) to the California Public Utilities Commission for review and approval on December 1. California’s Energy Storage Decision requires investor-owned utilities to procure 1,325MW of storage by 2020. PG&E’s share is 580MW. Since 2015, PG&E has signed contracts for 79MW of new energy storage capability. Storage plays an increasingly important role for California energy companies as they work to achieve the state’s ambitious clean energy goals. By the end of 2017, PG&E forecasts that about 33 percent of its retail electric deliveries will come from renewable sources. Energy storage will help integrate many of those resources, such as wind and solar, which are intermittent or provide peak output during times of low demand.

      Statement from Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association, on the enactment in New York of a state energy storage deployment program (pursuant to Assembly Bill 6571): “It’s a great day for energy storage in New York. We applaud Governor Cuomo, Assemblywoman Paulin, and Senator Griffo for their leadership on energy storage and their historic decision to pass and enact Assembly Bill 6571. By signing the bill into law, the Governor joined the unanimous opinion of the legislature that a long-term commitment to deploy energy storage is critical to a more reliable and resilient, affordable, and sustainable electric system for New Yorkers. That long-term commitment, moreover, sends a strong signal to the rapidly growing U.S. energy storage industry to invest and hire New York. Energy Storage Association members look forward to working with the Public Service Commission to determine an appropriate target for energy storage deployment in New York by 2030, as well as supporting NYSERDA and LIPA in administering innovative programs to meet that target.”

      The Multibillion-Dollar Opportunity for Battery Storage - Motley Fool

      Tesla completed the world's largest battery storage installation in South Australia recently, a 129 Megawatt-hours (MWh) project that will shave the peak demand in a high-cost part of the country. The project shows how big energy storage projects can be, but it's also just the tip of the iceberg for energy storage. A new report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) predicts that 305,000 MWh of energy storage will be installed between 2017 and 2030, or 2,364 projects the size of Tesla's South Australia storage system. The numbers are mind-boggling, but if the history of renewable energy is any indication, the opportunity could be even bigger than the most bullish projections.
