      SoCal Edison Seeks Distributed Resources to Enhance Local Grid Reliability

      Southern California Edison this week issued a request for offers, seeking a variety of renewable and distributed energy resources to increase reliability in an at-risk portion of the grid. The utility is seeking between 15 MW and 55 MW of resources, including energy storage, demand response, permanent load shift, combined heat and power, fuel cells, solar PV paired with energy storage and renewable distributed generation.

    2. Making Energy Storage So Simple It’s “Boring”

      Making Energy Storage So Simple It’s “Boring”

      One of the key technologies needed to transform world energy supplies away from fossil fuels and toward clean, renewable sources is a cheap and reliable way of storing and releasing energy. That will enable intermittent supplies such as solar and wind power, with their variable and often unpredictable outputs, to store energy that’s produced when it’s not needed and to release it when it’s needed most (or can be sold for the best price).

      The Next Big Battery Advances to Watch From Argonne National Lab

      Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory helped kick off the modern energy storage race with their diligent experimentation on lithium-ion batteries. Their patents have ended up in the technology that powers the Chevy Volt and contributed to stationary storage for buildings and the grid. Today's batteries, though, have not reached their full potential for power density, duration or cycle life.

      California Utilities Try to Shift to Solar Storage… Tesla's Helping

      We have long lamented that while solar energy production is a mature generation technology that should be used in nearly the entire U.S., the inability of our electronic grid in much of the country to store solar-generated energy limits its use to when the sun is shining. This almost always requires a backup (usually burning natural gas) for those hours when the sun does not shine.

      Where Does Energy Storage Fit in the Long Tail of Solar Installers?

      The residential solar industry is going through a pair of simultaneous changes that could alter the industry as we know it over the next decade. Over the past 18 months, it's become clear that the long tail of solar installers is taking the industry back from a small number of large installers, driven by the shift from lease/PPA financing to cash and loan sales that are more equitable to small companies. And with national installers paring back on sales and marketing efforts, it's hard to see them regaining share in the near future.

      Why We Still Need To Discuss Grid Defection

      The rapidly declining costs of distributed energy resources (DERs), including rooftop solar PV and behind-the-meter batteries, have introduced new dynamics into a traditionally slow-moving electricity industry. This paradigm shift has ushered us into a new era where previous assumptions about how, where, and at what scale electricity is best generated, transmitted, and distributed may no longer hold.
