    1. Replacing peakers with storage to achieve the greatest health benefit

      Replacing peakers with storage to achieve the greatest health benefit

      Peaker generating units causing the greatest health burdens can be retired and replaced with storage. That’s the idea behind a new data visualization resource from Physicians, Scientists, and Engineers for Healthy Energy (PSE). The U.S. has more than 1,000 peaker units, which operate only at times of peak load, and often have high hourly emissions. Many are located in areas with high proportions of minority and low-income residents.

      PG&E's total storage procurements pass 1 GW with latest round of projects | Utility Dive

      Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) is asking California regulators to approve five lithium-ion battery storage projects amounting to 423 MW/1,692 MWh, including a 60 MW/240 MWh battery co-located with a geothermal facility, the utility announced this week. The five projects are slated to come online in August 2021 and bump up the amount of storage PG&E has under contract to more than 1,000 MW. The utility intends to issue another solicitation this summer for resources that can go into operation in 2022 and 2023.

      Global Energy Storage to Rebound and Witness Strong Capacity Additions Despite Pandemic: Report

      Despite the current covid-19 pandemic, the medium-term future for energy storage remains bright. That’s according to Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, “Outlook for the Global Energy Storage Industry, 2020.” Just last month the US Energy Storage Association (ESA) released survey results that showed the impact that the novel coronavirus will have on the industry. The study focused on analyzing the covid-19 effect on energy storage companies’ revenue, employment and projects in the second quarter.

      As utilities tackle immediate COVID-19 impacts, analysts stress need to focus beyond the pandemic | Utility Dive

      Data now verifies a pandemic-driven collapsing commercial-industrial (C&I) electricity load is only partially offset by sheltering-at-home customers' spiking residential usage. Utilities have implemented measures to help residential customers cope with rising power bills. But some utility leaders and analysts are thinking beyond today's uncertainties and looking instead toward tomorrow's system needs in light of these shifting load dynamics, they told Utility Dive. One of the resources they're looking at? Storage.

      Siemens Gamesa to supply innovative hybrid plant in the Philippines for Berkeley Energy, reducing fossil fuel use in a remote location

      The plant will help provide stable electricity supply to island and reduce dependence on diesel, in turn further cutting emissions. Commercial hybrid project manages an existing 16MW wind power facility with battery storage integrated through Siemens Gamesa’s Hybrid Plant Controller (HPC). Siemens Gamesa has signed a 5-year maintenance contract for plant operations which can be optimized remotely using its Energy Management Service (EMS). Plant expected to be commissioned in the second half of 2020; additional 10MW wind farm facility is under negotiations.

      Hawaiian utility selects huge solar and storage proposals on way to 100% renewables

      The Hawaiian Electric Company, the largest electric utility on the Hawaiian Islands, has selected 16 solar-plus-storage or standalone storage projects on the islands of Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii that will deliver a combined 459MW of solar generation and nearly 3GWh of power storage. The projects were awarded as part of Hawaiian Electric’s efforts to transition to using 100% renewable energy for electric generation by 2045, and date back to a request for proposals issued by the company back in August of 2019 – then the largest single renewable energy procurement effort in Hawaii and among the largest by any US utility.

      Renewable energy developer Strata Solar sent an update on its landmark Ventura Energy Storage (VES) project — a 100-MW, 400-MWh battery energy storage system in unincorporated Ventura County, Calif. Strata awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to Tesla for its Megapack battery system. Pre-construction development is now complete. Construction, using local union labor, is scheduled to commence in July 2020. As the largest project selected in the paradigm-shifting solicitation by SCE, the project is helping Southern California to move away from the Aliso Natural Gas Storage facility and coastal power plants without compromising reliability.

    12. Replace NYC peakers with renewables+storage? Plant owners say they're working on it

      Replace NYC peakers with renewables+storage? Plant owners say they're working on it

      New York City ratepayers shelled out $4.5 billion in capacity payments in the last decade to keep 16 fossil fuel-based peaking plants available, according to a recent analysis. Owners of the plants say they are already working to add energy storage and make the facilities more efficient and concede that running them less would help improve air quality.

      Utility group PacifiCorp is about to open a gusher of opportunity for wind, solar and energy storage developers in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain regions. Last year PacifiCorp finalized a landmark integrated resource plan (IRP) that for the first time envisions it relying on large amounts of wind farms and solar backed by energy storage to meet its long-range energy needs. Now the utility, part of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate, is preparing a solicitation for projects to meet that plan’s needs through 2024, taking a concrete step toward its vision.

      DC Circuit grills NARUC, FERC on whether Order 841 will harm state ability to regulate distribution

      A three judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit pressed counsel on Tuesday on whether or not Order 841, a landmark federal storage order, was encroaching on state authority over the distribution system. This article from Utility Dive quotes Jason Burwen, ESA's VP of policy:

      'FERC’s counsel did an admirable job of laying out the importance of distributed energy storage access to wholesale markets, in line with FERC’s responsibility to ensure just and reasonable rates,' Jason Burwen, vice president of policy for ESA told Utility Dive in an email. 'We are cautiously optimistic that the questions focused by the D.C. Circuit on whether states could prove harm may be a signal that the Court is not inclined to vacate the Order​ ... a reversal by the Court would cause significant disruption to electric system innovation and resilience provided by distributed storage.​'
