      Batteries help enable Britain's first subsidy-free solar farm

      UK-based renewables developer Anesco says the inclusion of battery storage has been central to the economic viability of the country’s first subsidy-free solar farm, a 10MW site the company has just unveiled in the east of England. Clayhill Solar Farm, near Flitwick in Bedfordshire, was developed by Anesco in just 12 weeks with work being conducted over the course of this summer and, crucially, after the Renewables Obligation scheme had closed to new applicants.

    2. Thermal Energy Storage Market Size to Reach $12.50 Billion by 2025: Grand View Research, Inc.

      Thermal Energy Storage Market Size to Reach $12.50 Billion by 2025: Grand View Research, Inc.

      The Thermal Energy Storage (TES) market was valued at USD 3.33 Billion in 2016, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.0% from 2017 to 2022. Growing Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) installations and integration with TES is one of the major reason behind growing thermal energy storage. The increasing demand for thermal energy storage in HVAC systems, also helps in load shifting that makes TES economic due to differential on-peak and off-peak rates, and is driving the TES market for HVAC systems.

    3. Hurricanes Cause 'Apocalyptic' Devastation to Caribbean Power Grids

      Hurricanes Cause 'Apocalyptic' Devastation to Caribbean Power Grids

      Last Wednesday, Hurricane Maria passed over Puerto Rico, bringing 140-mile-per-hour winds, pelting rain and extreme flooding. After the storm moved on, Puerto Rico was left with "apocalyptic devastation" and absolutely no power. The island’s utility -- already bankrupt before the storm -- says it will be months before electricity is fully restored. The dire circumstances in Puerto Rico echo similar troubles now enveloping the Caribbean, where hundreds of thousands have been left with no electricity as Hurricanes Irma, Maria, and to some extent, Harvey, pummeled grids this past month, leaving entire islands without electricity.

    4. US Residential Grid-Tied Energy Storage Will Overtake Off-Grid Storage in 2017

      US Residential Grid-Tied Energy Storage Will Overtake Off-Grid Storage in 2017

      According to a new report from GTM Research, U.S. Residential Battery Storage Playbook 2017, this year will be the first ever in which grid-tied residential battery storage system deployments outnumber new off-grid and grid-independent systems across the United States. While data has been difficult to come by due to the nature of the deployments, off-grid and grid-independent backup storage applications have dominated the U.S. residential energy storage market to date. GTM Research estimates that in 2016, over 4,400 residential battery systems were deployed across the U.S., representing 127 megawatt-hours of storage. Of those systems, 86 percent were off-grid or grid-independent backup.

      New York City Aims To Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions By Using Energy Storage

      New York City is in the trenches when it comes to employing innovative energy technologies, which it hopes will help meet its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 75% by 2050. How so? By installing 100 megawatt/hours of energy storage, which may also allow the city's consumers to avoid buying dirtier power -- something that could save electricity customers there millions each year, a new study says.

      Duke Energy Plans Battery Storage Duo In North Carolina

      Duke Energy has announced plans to install what it claims will be North Carolina’s two largest battery energy storage systems – representing a $30 million total investment as part of the company’s Western Carolinas Modernization Plan. For many months, Duke Energy has been working on future energy needs in the region with stakeholders, including members of the Energy Innovation Task Force (EITF). The EITF is an ongoing collaborative effort with the City of Asheville and Buncombe County. One focus area of the group has been to take advantage of emerging technologies like energy storage to better serve the region.

      Battery Storage Uptake by Households Surges as Grid Costs Soar

      Battery storage system installations in Australia look set to confirm predictions they will treble in 2017, driven by a growing uptake of home battery systems. New data shows more than 7000 were installed across the nation in the first six month of the year – surpassing the 6500 sales recorded for all of 2016 – and are headed for a total of more than 20,000 by the year’s end. According to the SunWiz 2017 Mid-Year Battery Report, published on Wednesday, the market predicts the second half of 2017 to grow by 50 per cent on 2017-H1 figures, leading to total 2017 installations of 17,500. SunWiz, however, believes the figure could exceed 20,000.

      Stem Hails California Assemblyman's Bid to Cut Energy Storage Permitting Costs

      Legislation recently introduced in California to cut red tape and reduce permitting times for energy storage systems and currently awaiting the state Governor’s rubber stamp could also halve the costs associated with paperwork, commercial system provider Stem has said. Assembly Bill 546 (AB 546) was authored by Democrat David Chiu, representing the 17th Assembly District of California, which includes the eastern half of San Francisco. The bill, which seeks to streamline permitting processes by, among other things, allowing for online forms to be submitted for approval, passed the Assembly floor successfully on 7 September. It now awaits the attention of the California Governor, climate hawk Jerry Brown.

      An Inside Look at Using Energy Storage to Integrate Renewable Resources

      California is a leader in both renewable energy resources and energy storage. The state has one of the highest renewable portfolio standards in the U.S., mandating that 50% of all electric power be sourced from renewable resources by 2030, and the state has the first and some of the most robust incentives for energy storage. AB 2514 requires the state’s three investor owned utilities to procure 1.3 GW of energy storage by 2020, and AB 2868 requires each IOU to deploy an additional 166 MW of behind-the-meter and/or distribution tied storage.

      Flow Batteries Leading the Way in Lithium-Free Niches

      While lithium-ion is rapidly racing ahead to become the “de facto grid storage solution” and is the most popular technology choice by far, vendors of other types of batteries are also targeting the market, with varying degrees of success. US firm Navigant Research published ‘Navigant Research Leaderboard: Non-lithium ion batteries for grid storage’,  earlier this month, examining the technologies, business models and strategies for commercialisation and larger scale production of energy storage batteries that sit outside the many different sub-chemistries making up the lithium battery market ecosystem.

      California’s Big Battery Experiment: a Turning Point for Energy Storage?

      On a paved expanse next to an electrical substation in Escondido, 30 miles north of downtown San Diego, sits a row of huge silver boxes. The site resembles a barracks, but instead of soldiers, the 24 containers house racks of battery packs. This is the largest lithium-ion battery in the world, according to its developers. When the local grid needs more power, these batteries deliver, almost instantaneously. They hold up to 30 megawatts fully charged – roughly equivalent to powering 20,000 homes – and can sustain that level for up to four hours.

      Why Utilities Don’t Move Power Lines Out of Hurricanes’ Way

      Millions of Floridians are ready to get on with their recovery from Hurricane Irma, which roared through the state earlier this week, pummeling homes and flooding streets. But for the moment, many are stuck anxiously waiting in the sweltering heat for the power (and the all-important air conditioning) to come back on. One of the largest Atlantic storms ever, Irma knocked out power to 6.7 million accounts in Florida, or about two-thirds of the state. As of Wednesday afternoon, state emergency officials estimated that one-third were still without power.
