      PJM Region and California Dominate US Storage via Different Paths

      While much of the U.S. activity surrounding energy storage has been focused on California and the PJM region, the locus of activity is expected to expand as states like New York and Massachusetts implement ambitious storage goals. A new report from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) that gives a snapshot of the energy storage landscape shows how differing policy drivers have led to the proliferation of large capacity and short duration storage projects in the PJM region while California leads in terms of MWh of capacity

      First Grid-Scale Liquid Air Energy Storage Plant Launches in UK

      Highview Power in partnership with British recycling and waste disposal company Viridor has brought online what it calls the world’s first grid-scale liquid air energy storage (LAES) plant. The 5 MW, 15 MWh demonstration plant at the Pilsworth landfill gas site in Bury near Manchester received support from the U.K. government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), which supplied $10.7 million in funding. Demand response aggregator KiWi Power will draw energy from the LAES plant to power about 5,000 average-sized homes for around three hours.

      The Department of Energy (DoE) wants to "purchase or arrange the purchase of electric energy or electric generation capacity" for two years and delay coal and nuclear plant retirements, according to a memo made public on 1 June. But a coalition of energy industry associations, including AWEA, condemned the proposals, claiming it would "hurt consumers". It is unclear whether the president had signed off on the DoE’s latest 40-page document, authorising the bail out of coal and nuclear plants.

      Grid Mod Policy Actions Sump 75%, with storage Playing a Central Role

      A sure measure of how much and how fast the U.S. power system is changing is that the number of policy actions addressing grid modernization jumped 75% from Q1 2017 to Q1 2018. This also reveals something more important about grid modernization. Grid modernization is everything from advance metering infrastructure (AMI) to rate design that would make the system "more resilient, responsive, and interactive," according to the Q1 2018 50 States of Grid Modernization. More broadly, it is the set of changes to the electric distribution system that will make the utility of the future possible.

      Energy Storage Could Be Residential Solar's Next Growth Product

      Residential solar installers are quietly starting to expand their offerings to include energy storage, which could be a much-needed revenue boost for the industry. Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA) Powerwall is the best-known energy storage device, but Sunrun (NASDAQ:RUN), SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR), and Vivint Solar (NYSE:VSLR) are entering the market as well, and they're seeing some signs of success early in 2018. What's great about energy storage for solar installers is that it's incremental revenue that leverages existing marketing and sales expenses. And it could help make solar more attractive to customers in states that have made it more difficult to justify solar economically.

The company's even building a battery gigafactory in the Nevada desert to keep its battery empire well-supplied, and one of the reasons for this is that Tesla is rapidly outgrowing its origins as a car company, and finding new ways to make money by building huge, utility-scale energy storage complexes to help electricity companies shore up the stability of their electric grids.
