      Report: U.S. Campus Microgrids Lead Despite Utilities
      By 2017, for example, Pike Research forecasts the North American education campus environment segment will reach 1,281 MW at a CAGR (2011-2017) of 17.5% in the average scenario. Overall, the North American campus environment sector will reach 1,572 MW out of a global total of 1,642 MW, a world market share that exceeds 95% in the same average scenario.

      Military's Storage and Smart Grid Plans Benefit All

      Certainly there are a number of civilian or community-based microgrids under way too – but perhaps not with the urgency that is behind the military's microgrid maneuvers. For instance, in recent weeks alone: … ZBB Energy Corp. won a Navy contract to provide a 1000kWH energy storage system for use in a microgrid application at the San Nicolas Island Naval Facility off the California coast.

    3. Analysis: Comparison Of Large-Scale Energy Storage Solutions

      Analysis: Comparison Of Large-Scale Energy Storage Solutions

      Some well-established technologies offer significant energy storage capacity but require specific geographical features and considerable infrastructure. Others can be deployed rapidly to wherever they are required, but currently offer restricted capacity, often at high cost. One technology that is now attracting considerable interest is large-scale battery storage.

    5. Exports A Big Opportunity for US Advanced Battery Manufacturers

      Exports A Big Opportunity for US Advanced Battery Manufacturers

      At first blush, the idea of finding lucrative markets in developing countries for advanced U.S. technology that the domestic U.S. markets are still largely unwilling to adopt sounds bizarre. But there is logic to it. In developing countries where the electricity grid is not large, complicated and reliable, investments in grid-connected energy storage will have a noticeable and immediate impact on reliability. Moreover, even relatively expensive grid-connected energy storage systems may be seen by developing world grid operators as a less expensive investment than investing in the incumbent technology necessary to bring their grid to First World standards.

      Dow Kokam, DoE's Oak Ridge Agree to Boost Li-Ion Battery Performance
      Dow Kokam and the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory are working together to enhance the Michigan-based company’s capabilities to develop and commercialize advanced lithium ion batteries. The relationship was formalized today with an agreement worth up to $5.5 million over six years … Many of the specialized battery development capabilities that are part of this effort are exclusive to ORNL.

    7. CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects

      CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects
      Although the Solar Trust case only deals with one project, it could lead to more requests from developers to have the commission oversee PV power plants. That could, in effect, strip counties and cities of the ability to have the final say on PV power projects (if a project is on federal land, then the federal government is in charge).

    8. Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage

      Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage
      At the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant in Sakai, Kansai Electric Power introduced an energy storage facility accommodating 48 nickel hydride batteries near KEPCO's substation … At Sakai, up to 10,000 kilowatts of electricity is generated during the current trial run ahead of the full operation starting in October. On cloudy and rainy days, however, the output drops to around 5,000 kilowatts and 2,000 kilowatts, respectively. To make up for the gap and achieve stable supply, KEPCO plans to release electricity accumulated in the energy storage facility on sunny days. Since the utility did not adopt highly-efficient lithium-ion batteries at the energy storage facility for financial reasons, there is a limit to the amount of electricity it can cover on bad weather days. Despite being the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant, its output is roughly one-hundredth of that of a nuclear reactor.
