ESA is excited that our Leadership Circle member, Renewable Energy Systems (RES), was selected by San Antonio utility CPS Energy to build and install a $16.3 million solar and energy storage project. The station will be on the Southwest Research Institute’s (SwRI) 1,200-acre campus in San Antonio and is an important step for energy modernization in Texas. The CPS Energy solar and energy storage systems consist of 5 MWAC of distributed solar capacity co-located with a 10 MW/10 MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) controlled by RESolve. This project combines distributed solar generation with strategically sized and configured electrochemical energy storage. In addition, the technologies are interconnected at distribution voltage on a common feeder.

      Zinc-Air Batteries Provide Power in Remote Areas

      NEW YORK — Remote villages in Africa and Asia are receiving electricity using a little-known type of technology: zinc-air batteries. The goal is to provide a battery that can capture renewable energy and store it for later use. California-based NantEnergy said Wednesday it has created a rechargeable zinc-air battery storage system that can provide power at a lower cost than lithium-ion systems.

      Engie Na Unveils Largest Energy Storage System in Massachusetts in Cooperation with Holyoke Gas & Electric

      HOLYOKE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--ENGIE North America and Holyoke Gas & Electric (HG&E) today unveiled Massachusetts’ largest utility-scale energy storage system at a ceremony at the Mt. Tom Solar Farm in Holyoke, Massachusetts. ENGIE Storage Services (formerly Green Charge) will operate the three-megawatt GridSynergy™ system, which will be fully integrated into the largest community solar farm in the state at a location adjacent to the former Mt. Tom Power Station. The former coal and oil-fired generation facility, 90 miles west of Boston, operated for more than 50 years and ceased operation in 2014. The energy storage system will enhance HG&E’s electricity system and help keep electric rates stable by reducing rising capacity charges for the utility and its customers. Additionally, GridSynergy will provide grid stability by responding quickly to electricity demand fluctuations; allow for the increased use of clean energy; and reduce peak load burden on the existing electrical distribution system.

      Energy Storage Association Seeks Clarity on Eligibility of Energy Storage for Investment Tax Credit

      The Energy Storage Association (ESA) recently issued a statement thanking U.S. Sens. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) for their efforts to obtain clarification on the eligibility of energy storage for the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). The Investment Tax Credit is currently a 30 percent federal tax credit claimed against the tax liability of residential and commercial and utility investors in solar energy property. The senators sent a letter on Sept. 20 to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin seeking clarification on the eligibility of energy storage technologies under Internal Revenue Code Section 48 when energy storage is added to an existing ITC-eligible technology. The senators requested that the clarification be included in the IRS’ 2018-2019 Priority Guidance Plan.

    9. CEO Statement on Proposal to Make Storage Projects Eligible for Solar Investment Tax Credit

      CEO Statement on Proposal to Make Storage Projects Eligible for Solar Investment Tax Credit

      ESA sincerely thanks Senator Scott and Senator Bennet for their letter to Secretary Mnuchin last Thursday requesting clarification on the eligibility of energy storage in the IRC Section 48 investment tax credit, when storage is added to an existing ITC-eligible technology. Timely issuance of proposed regulations is an important step to stabilize the investment environment, which will accelerate the industry’s work to build a more resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable electricity grid. That’s why ESA sent its own letter to Assistant Secretary Kautter earlier this month requesting the same, and has been working closely with our colleagues at the Solar Energy Industries Association to communicate the importance of this clarification on storage eligibility. We are pleased that Sen. Scott and Sen. Bennet also see the importance of this issue, and we ask Secretary Mnuchin and Assistant Secretary Kautter to act on their bipartisan request.

      ARPA-E Funds Research on Energy Storage That Can Last for Days

      Long-duration energy storage — batteries or other technologies that can store energy for at least four hours of continuous operation, or possibly even longer — accounts for a minority of the grid-scale energy storage deployed today. There are many reasons for this, including the cheapness and relative reliability of lithium-ion batteries for short-duration applications. As well as the, shall we say, less than stellar record of long-duration battery startups that have gone bankrupt or failed to deliver on their promises.

      CLIMATE: 'Locked-in' Technologies Seen Undermining Emission Curbs

      The world's ability to fight climate change could be thwarted by a problem few people are talking about: technology lock-in. That's the warning in a series of recent papers from university professors and a book claiming that solar, wind and energy storage may have settled too early on specific technologies and thus may not reach levels necessary to prevent catastrophic warming. It's not entirely a new idea but one that is getting renewed attention and sparking heated debate among analysts. One critic called the idea "madness," while others say policymakers need to be thinking more about it to ensure greenhouse gases stay in check.

      WHEN A PAIR OF DERECHOS dumped torrential rain and sent tornadoes spiraling across the mid-Atlantic in June 2013, uprooting trees and knocking out power for people in 18 states, Patricia Stevenson pitched in to keep her community running. With the electricity out for five days, neighbors in her rural West Virginia town couldn't use their fridges to keep food cool. They couldn't even power the well pumps. Stevenson, meanwhile, was apparently the only person for miles who had a gas generator. So they turned to her to draw water.
