      Saft to supply batteries for lighthouses
      Saft has beeb awarded a 4-year framework agreement to supply batteries for the modernization and overhaul of lighthouses and solar buoys around Scotland ... The agreement covers Saft’s 12 V Ni-MH battery modules, with capacities ranging from 100 Ah to 3,000 Ah. They will be installed at a number of offshore buoys and lighthouses to provide energy storage for solar power systems and as standby power at mains powered sites. A total of seven batteries will be delivered in 2011.

      Johnson Controls Survey: Commercial Buildings Energy Management
      Highlights ... double-digit increase in U.S./Canada building owners who believe energy management is important (66%) compared to the prior year (52%). Building owners expect lighting and smart building technology to have greater adoption rates over the next ten years than renewable energy technologies in the U.S./Canada. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of U.S./Canada building owners plan to include green building elements in their facility plans in the next 12 months. Efficiency in buildings remains the top global strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions led by the U.S./Canada (52%) and then Europe (28%), China (27%) and India (24%).

      BC Hydro, NGK, S&C Electric team on project
      The project involves two 1MW batteries. The battery near Golden will supplement the community’s power supply during peak periods. The battery in Field will store up to seven hours of reliable back up supply that could be used during an outage. The batteries will be supplied by NGK Insulators, and the system will be engineered and installed by S&C Electric Company.

      White House Releases "A Policy Framework For The 21st Century Grid"
      Energy storage systems have the potential to optimize the operating capabilities of the grid and the use of renewable energy by storing power for later use Such systems can work more effectively in tandem with smart grid technology, can augment demand response resources to reduce and shift peak energy loads, and can improve power quality and service reliability. Significantly, utility-sited energy storage can be used to avoid or delay investments in new distribution capacity and substation equipment. Today, only about 2 5% of U S electricity is provided through storage, although other countries, such as Japan, use storage for up to 15% of their energy needs.

      UK: Wasted wind
      Currently, the actual amount of electricity wasted is very small, as the grid turns off coal rather than waste wind. But as we increase the amount of wind power on the grid, the problems will increase. The government's chief scientific adviser on climate change, Professor David MacKay, says: "We will have to put in complimentary amounts of balancing services, which could be inter-connectors [with Europe], pumped storage, demand shifting or mothballed gas power stations," he says.
