      The Ecosystems of Innovation

      Energy storage is a sector marked by continuous technological development – and given the challenges created by our rapidly transforming energy systems, it needs to be. But how do innovations move from idea to reality? Specifically, what kind of environments are needed to nurture new technologies and approaches, and how do they interact with existing supports?

    4. Energy Storage with Second Life Batteries by ENGIE and Umicore

      Energy Storage with Second Life Batteries by ENGIE and Umicore

      On October 8, 2019, an industrial 'second life' battery system was first put into use in Belgium. The system consists of 48 used batteries from electric cars, and now forms one large storage battery of 1.2 MW or 720 kWh. Now that the electric car is gaining popularity, the question arises as to what will happen to all batteries once the cars are no longer being used; the partnership between Engie and Umicore will develop applications for these ex-EV batteries.

    5. California Blackouts: Keeping the Lights on with Solar Energy

      California Blackouts: Keeping the Lights on with Solar Energy

      Hundreds of thousands of homes in California lost power early on Wednesday as windy, dry weather increased the risk of fire, prompting the electric utility, PG&E, to shut down the grid to avoid any chance of the type of power-line accident that sparked the deadly wildfire in the small town of Paradise less than a year ago. It may take days for the power to come back on. But at some homes, solar and battery storage systems are keeping the lights on.

      The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019

      The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019 was awarded jointly to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino 'for the development of lithium-ion batteries.' This lightweight, rechargeable and powerful battery is now used in everything from mobile phones to laptops and electric vehicles. It can also store significant amounts of energy from solar and wind power, making possible a fossil fuel-free society.

    9. Go Big, Go DC: An In-Depth Look at DC-Coupled Solar-Plus-Storage

      Go Big, Go DC: An In-Depth Look at DC-Coupled Solar-Plus-Storage

      As the costs of solar PV modules continue to reduce, and those of batteries follow a similar downward trajectory, solar-plus-storage is in growing demand among utilities and solar developers. To further push down the levelized cost of energy of solar-plus-storage and maximize the amount of MWh of solar-generated electricity that can be fed into the grid, energy suppliers and developers are turning to direct current (DC) coupling these installations. Compared with alternating current (AC) coupling, DC coupling the PV array and the battery storage system in front-of-meter installations, such as utility-scale plants, is a much newer, less standardised approach.

      California’s Shutting Off Power to Prevent Fires. Here Are Some Better Options.

      California’s major utility may shut off power across most of the San Francisco Bay Area this week to prevent fires as dry, windy weather closes in. But surely, the world’s fifth largest economy can figure out a better long-term strategy than periodically leaving hundreds of thousands of people in the dark. Some argue that particularly fire-prone regions on the wildland-urban interface could disconnect from the larger grid and rely on local renewables generation and storage entirely.

      Massachusetts' Clean Peak Standard Is 'Common Sense' that Should Spread Across America

      The recent flurry of energy storage project announcements from Massachusetts have been driven in part by a “common sense” approach to tackling the dirtiest impacts of fossil fuel generation. Massachusetts was identified by research firm Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables as one of the leading US states to have “laid the groundwork for supportive storage policies” in recent years, along with New York. Both states, Wood Mackenzie expect, will witness project developments that will contribute to ”substantial growth” US-wide in the early 2020s.

      State of Charge: Five Things to Know About the Energy Storage Market Heading into 2020

      The U.S. energy storage market is growing tremendously. Indeed, IHS Markit projects that over 40 GW of energy storage capacity will be installed by 2022, starting from a base of only 0.34 GW installed in 2012 and 2013. This growth of the U.S. energy storage market is driven by several commercial and regulatory factors, including an increase in recent utility-scale power purchase agreements, declining costs of lithium-ion batteries, the availability of state and, to a certain extent, federal incentives for solar + storage projects. Here are the five main factors guiding the market heading into 2020.

      Oregon Utility Partners with Cities to Achieve Resiliency with Microgrids

      Beaverton is the second Oregon city that will embrace microgrids for resiliency, working with utility Portland General Electric (PGE), which says it plans additional partnerships with cities. PGE’s microgrid projects are designed in part to provide resiliency if and when an earthquake hits the Oregon coast. The city of Beaverton will own their new emergency operations center, 300 kW of solar PV, and a 1,000 kW diesel standby generator. PGE will own the 250 kW storage system, which it will use, when available, for frequency control
