    1. How Renewables and Storage will Replace German Nukes

      How Renewables and Storage will Replace German Nukes
      Existing energy storage options are being maximised and new battery technologies rolled-out. With more than 17,000MW of installed capacity, Germany boasts more than half the world’s operating photovoltaic solar energy panels. More than 21,000 wind turbines, most of them onshore, provide another 27,000MW, while offshore development of a further 25,000MW in the North Sea is planned by 2030. By 2050, the country expects to generate 80% of its electricity using renewable sources.

    4. Opinion: FERC plan is unfair advantage for distant renewables

      Opinion: FERC plan is unfair advantage for distant renewables
      The Coalition for Fair Transmission Policy said: "The market should determine what generation and transmission should be built. Instead, under its proposed rules, FERC would pick winners and losers, favoring remote renewable projects that require a transmission build out costing hundreds of billions of dollars over cheaper and possibly greener energy projects built closer to home".

    5. Brookings: energy tech, not "green", driving the US clean economy

      Brookings: energy tech, not "green", driving the US clean economy
      The driving force behind the U.S. “clean economy” over the last decade has been emerging energy technologies –- not in other “green” sectors related to buildings and home weatherization, energy-saving consumer products, or efficient appliances. In other words, emerging energy technologies appear to have the greatest job and export growth potential, and this carries important implications for U.S. policy priorities — a conclusion recently echoed in Google’s energy innovation report.

    6. Solar (w/ Storage) Will Move Appalachia From Coal

      Solar (w/ Storage) Will Move Appalachia From Coal
      Figure 7 shows the decrease in the consumer price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for solar energy over time. This cost includes the cost to install solar, install energy storage (beginning in 2020), maintain the solar array, and building the transmission infrastructure. While this decrease may not look like much at first glance, it’s much more desirable than the dramatic cost increases in Figure 8 if we were to stick with coal.

    7. VYCON Discusses its Flywheel Benefits

      VYCON Discusses its Flywheel Benefits
      VYCON’s flywheel requires "15 minutes of maintenance annually and that is non-disruptive". Most flywheels are configured to provide 20 seconds of full load. Even when customers retain their batteries, battery hardening occurs because the flywheel removes most of the stress from the batteries for those 10-second-or-less disruptions. This extends the battery life and customers still have a choice in using batteries or not. VYCON’s flywheel has a 20-year use life.

      UK Dept Risking "NEGawatt" Market by Lack of Payment Clarity
      The Department of Energy and Climate Change confirmed last week that it will develop a policy that will set out the role of electricity demand management initiatives, energy storage systems, new interconnection links to the continent, and the roll out smart grid technologies. The DECC has been warned it risks harming investor confidence in the UK's emerging "negawatt market", after failing to reveal how it will administer payments for back-up plants and demand management schemes.

    10. Report by Pike: “Energy Storage on the Grid”

      Report by Pike: “Energy Storage on the Grid”
      Pike Research anticipates that among the various application segments in this market, the integration of renewable energy – primarily wind power – will represent approximately 50% of the total capacity deployed for long duration energy storage. The firm forecasts that load leveling/peak shifting will represent 31% of the total market, followed by arbitrage (12%) and T&D upgrade deferral (7%).

    11. MIT Research: a thermal battery for storing solar

      MIT Research: a thermal battery for storing solar
      MIT engineers have been making inroads in chemically storing the sun’s energy as heat rather than electricity. The idea is to develop a thermal battery that can take in and release solar energy on demand, and over and over again ... "You’ve got a material that both converts and stores energy. It’s robust, it doesn’t degrade, and it’s cheap," said Jeffrey Grossman.

      Opinion: Upcoming Massive Glut of Li-ion Batteries

      Lux forecasts a catastrophic supply and demand imbalance in the lithium-ion battery sector over the next decade … The Lux forecast is bad news for diversified first tier manufacturers like LG Chem, GS Yuasa, SB LiMotive, AESC, and Sanyo; terrible news for financially sound second tier manufacturers like Toshiba, Hitachi, and JCI-Saft; and an "existential threat" for emerging third tier battery developers like A123 Systems (AONE), Ener1 (HEV), Valence Technologies (VLNC) … that were counting on transportation markets that are unlikely to develop.
