      Is Battery Energy Storage at a 'Turning Point' for US utilities?

      In a famous children's fable, a stuffed rabbit becomes real when its owner believes in it. The nation’s utilities may now be similarly transforming battery energy storage. The U.S. utility-scale battery storage installed capacity grew by another 221 MW in 2016 as costs continued to drop, according to a recent report from GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association. More importantly, the sector last year doubled the amount of megawatt-hours (MWh) of battery capacity deployed compared to 2015.

    4. Distributed Energy Storage Reduces Demand using 8,000 Batteries

      Distributed Energy Storage Reduces Demand using 8,000 Batteries

      A distributed energy storage network of 8,000 batteries located at 7,000 telecom facilities in France has reduced utility demand by 10 to 15 MW during two demand response events. And now the company that managed the program wants to bring it to the U.S. Actility, which provides IoT-based grid balancing and demand response programs, wants to launch its program in the US by partnering with utilities and energy providers in the same way it does in Europe. In addition, it is seeking to work with companies, like France’s Orange Telecom, that have distributed battery networks, said Cedric De Jonghe, the energy business manager for Actility.

      Energy Storage in Infrastructure Modernization? Yes and Here's Why

      Roads and bridges may be what comes to mind for a lot of people when they hear about federal infrastructure improvements. But batteries and other advanced energy storage devices should be on the list too. That’s the word from the Energy Storage Association and 52 private companies and business associations in a letter this week urging Congressional leaders to include energy storage in infrastructure modernization planning.

      Energy Innovation Harmed in Proposed Cuts: Industry and Lawmakers

      Tesla Inc., one of the most successful electric car companies in the world, was largely saved from bankruptcy by a $465 million loan from the Energy Department in 2010. It’s a story Robert Edwards likes to tell. Edwards was the deputy general counsel for energy policy at the Department of Energy who negotiated the Tesla loan as well as a $5.9 billion loan to Ford Motor Co. in 2009, which he said helped keep the automaker on track with its clean vehicles program and saved or created 33,000 jobs.

      Ambri's Battery Storage Technology is Heating Up

      A new company is coming in hot with their energy storage technology, dependent on 900 degree Fahrenheit molten metals.  Ambri has developed a battery storage system that is relatively simple, developing reliable power and displaying rechargeable capabilities. This “hot” ticket item has caught the attention of some major, noteworthy investors including Bill Gates, Total, a French energy company, and at least three other large investors.  So far, Ambri has received $50 million in investments for their research, development, and manufacturing.  These investments are supplementing a grant from the Massachusetts’s Clean Energy Center awarded to the company to assist with maintaining operations and development.

      World's Biggest Battery Energy Storage Facilities

      Since the invention of electricity there is always a challenge to store it for future use. With the technological advancement, battery storage has offered a way to store energy chemically-especially renewable energy, so that it can be used at the point of demand or to balance grid. Amid surge in solar and wind power generation and their intermittent nature, the battery storage demand has increased manifold, and now batteries are big enough to give power backup to mega cities. As the renewable energy share rises in the energy mix, there is an increased focus on energy storage projects in recent years. They are expected to play a key in the global transition to renewable energy.

      Industry Urges Congress to Consider Energy Storage in Infrastructure Plans

      Arguing that energy storage is “critical to ensuring a resilient, reliable, cost-effective and sustainable grid”, the Energy Storage Association joined with 52 other organisations to plead the place of storage in the Trump’s administration’s infrastructure priorities. Penning a letter to Congress, the coalition of energy storage advocates asserted that any dialogue on enhancing and rebuilding infrastructure and modernising the grid must involve energy storage systems. Signing the letter alongside ESA's leadership were companies and groups including Johnson Controls, Lockheed Martin, 24m Technologies, AES Energy Storage, LG Chem, Enel Green Power North America, Green Charge, Greensmith, National Electrical Contractors Association, Panasonic, Parker Hannifin, Siemens, Stem, Sunverge, UL and several others.

      The World's Biggest Solar Energy Storage Farm is Set to Launch in Australia

      Construction will soon be underway on a gigantic solar farm in South Australia that's set to be the biggest of its kind in the world – thanks to 3.4 million solar panels and 1.1 million individual batteries. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, at which point the huge plant should outdo all other solar farms in terms of overall battery capacity – although other solar facilities are larger in terms of land area.

      Greensmith Energy Upgrades Existing 14MWh AEP Energy Storage Sys

      Greensmith Energy, the leader in energy storage software and services, installed its industry-leading GEMS software platform at an existing American Electric Power (AEP) energy storage site, enabling it to offer new services including qualifying for the PJM frequency regulation market. The sodium sulphur battery energy storage system, widely used at utility substations around the world, had previously been used as a backup system for AEP’s distribution network in the region. Greensmith’s newly-completed software upgrade has enhanced the system’s safety and reliability and enabled the 2MW / 14MWh West Virginia system to easily pass PJM’s rigorous qualification tests with a high performance score—on par with lithium-ion battery systems purpose-built for frequency regulation applications

      Engie’s Acquisition of EV-Box Adds to Its Growing Ecosystem of Distributed Energy Offerings

      EV charging-station developer EV-Box is looking to expand its global footprint after being bought by international energy company Engie. EV-Box, native to the Netherlands, already provides 26 countries and 980 cities with more than 48,000 charging stations. EV-Box’s CEO Kristof Vereenooghe told GTM that his company would become a global player in the charger market with Engie's help. "In the next 10 to 20 years, as costs come down, performance improves and vehicle choice widens, e-mobility will inevitably become one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide,” he said. “But electric vehicles are only one part of a bigger ecosystem characterized by Engie -- a decentralized, decarbonized and digital energy space.”
