      EVgo Goes Plaid With New Ultra-Fast Charging Station In Baker, California

      EVgo has flipped the switch on a new bank of fast, super-fast, and ultra-fast EV chargers that help plug-in vehicle drivers conveniently make the run from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The new installation brings two 50 kW fast chargers, new 150 kW and 175 kW super-fast chargers, and a 350 kW ultra-fast charger to the popular gas-and-go town of Baker, California. The chargers include a bank of second-life batteries to store up cheap power and push it out to charging vehicles in order to mitigate the steep demand charges from the utility that typically eat into the cost of delivering power to vehicles charging at high rates of speed.

      UK Water Utility Makes Storage Splash

      UK water company Northumbrian Water will trial energy storage systems at several of its UK sites next year. The systems, comprising second-life lithium ion batteries from Renault electric cars, will mainly be used to manage energy loads and reduce energy spend by recharging with lower cost electricity at night for providing power during high-cost evening peak times. The batteries will also earn revenues by providing grid balancing services.

      Sonnen: Residential Batteries Ready to Compete with Fossil Fuels and Nuclear in Germany

      Batteries in private households will be now able to perform the “same tasks as a conventional power plant”, across the whole of Germany, the CEO of Sonnen has said, following a ruling that opens up grid services markets to the company’s devices. Sonnen last week announced that it has obtained pre-qualification to enter Germany’s Primary Control Reserve market by grid operator TenneT for its battery energy storage units installed across the country. Primary Control Reserve is a form of frequency regulation, keeping the grid to within acceptable boundaries of its optimum 50Hz operating frequency.

      North Carolina Panel Bullish on Energy Storage

      Energy storage will not only help North Carolina replace coal-powered electricity in the state in the coming decades but may also offset the need for new natural gas plants as well.  A study of the energy storage landscape was submitted to the state’s General Assembly in early December that will serve as a roadmap to help lawmakers and regulators fully develop the technology. North Carolina is currently in the initial phases of deploying energy storage facilities; however, the report authored by the team of university experts concluded that storing electricity could not only smooth out peak demand periods, but would also become a reliable everyday piece of the region’s fuel mix.

      Renewables, Energy Storage, & Managing The Utility Grid Of The Future

      Things are changing fast in the world of electricity generation and distribution. As always, changes are to the advantage of some and the disadvantage of others. The sharp drop in the cost of renewable energy in the past few years is the primary engine driving the changes. The next revolution is bulk energy storage, the piece of the puzzle that will turn traditional ideas of how an electrical grid should operate completely upside down. Here’s a look at what is happening right now and what the utility grid of the future may look like.

      Project of the Year: REV Connect

      Let's be clear: Anything that can take the torturous rigidity out of utility procurements deserves an award. New York's Reforming the Energy Vision has been around a few years, and the state's efforts to reshape the utility sector are beginning to pay off. Plenty of states have followed suit, but New York's REV is a holistic reimagining of energy resources and the business models underpin the sector. While REV aims to bring about wholesale changes, one initiative within it is speeding the development of new resources and solutions while helping remake utility procurement processes.

      Milwaukee Eyes its Own Rooftop Solar Mandate with a California Clone

      Eyeing the success of the recently-passed California solar mandate, Milwaukee Common Council Member Tony Zielinski has proposed legislation that would require all new residential units in the city to include solar arrays, starting in 2019. Zielinski told Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) that the idea for his proposal came while he was reading about California’s rooftop solar mandate. “I think this is just one step in a series of steps that we need to undertake to help improve our environment and gradually reduce our reliance on fuels,” Zielinski said while appearing on WPR. ” There’s a whole myriad of other initiatives… I think we need to add more. I just think that this is one step and there’ll be additional steps down the road as well.”

      Battery Boosters Pushing Congress to Give Industry a Tax Credit

      Renewable-energy advocates are pushing Congress to create a tax credit for power-storage systems, a move that may help unlock new opportunities for wind and solar nationwide. A storage tax credit would boost the grid’s resiliency and reliability, they say, key buzzwords in the Trump administration’s campaign to save struggling nuclear and coal-fired power plants. But so far, congressional Republicans aren’t biting.

      National Renewable Energy Laboratory Gets DOE Award to Develop Grid Electricity Storage System

      The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) recently awarded DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) $2.8 million to develop a grid electricity storage and power generation system. The system includes a charging device, thermal energy storage modules, a heat exchanger, and a closed-loop Brayton cycle turbine. “When electric power is cheapest, electric heaters will ‘charge’ the storage modules by heating stable, inexpensive solid particles to more than 1,100 degrees Celsius,” NREL Principal Investigator Zhiwen Ma said. “And when it’s time to discharge this energy, the hot particles will move through a heat exchanger to heat a working fluid that drives a high-efficiency closed-Brayton combined cycle attached to an electric generator.”

      Carbon Bill Makes First Footprint

      A group of House lawmakers introduced Tuesday night the first bipartisan carbon pricing legislation in a decade. Months in the making, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act would start with $15 fee per metric ton of carbon dioxide on domestic oil, gas and coal sectors, ramping up $10 each calendar year until emissions standards are met. "It is the product of rigorous negotiations between Democrats and Republicans," Florida Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch, the bill's lead sponsor, told reporters on a conference call. Backers argue the effort will deliver major benefits: 2.1 million net new jobs by the 10th year; 13,000 avoided pollution-related U.S. deaths annually and a 90 percent reduction in carbon emissions from 2015 levels by 2050.

      US Congress Urged to Clarify Eligibility of Energy Storage for ITC

      The US government has been urged to recognise the “critical role” energy storage can play in making the grid cleaner and able to accept more renewable energy, by increasing the eligibility of batteries and other technologies to receive the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). The ITC is applicable to purchases of solar energy equipment in the US and applies about a 30% rebate or discount for buyers. In recent years the policy scheme has been adjusted to include energy storage but for a long time, storage systems could only receive the Federal subsidy if installed at the same time as solar equipment.

      Ultracapacitors On UC San Diego's Microgrid — Smoothing the Sun

      Maxwell Technologies has installed the first ultracapacitor energy storage system on UC San Diego’s microgrid. The system, an inconspicuous 20-foot container filled with ultracapacitor modules, supports the solar panels that capture and feed energy to the adjacent La Jolla Playhouse Theater. The goal of the Maxwell ultracapacitor bank installation was to see if ultracapacitors can provide a more cost-effective energy storage system for microgrids—and better response time—than batteries.
