    1. PG&E Launches Renewable Energy Self-Generation Incentive Program

      PG&E Launches Renewable Energy Self-Generation Incentive Program

      Early in May, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, or PG&E, announced that it would devote $240 million to helping customers buy into renewable energy technologies, renewable energy storage, and peripheral technologies. The program was developed by the state legislature and the state’s utility watchdog, and will be administered by California’s energy companies – a move that would be similar to setting a fox to watch a henhouse were it not for the watchdog California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

      Acciona begins operation of hybrid wind & storage plant

      ACCIONA Energía has started up the first hybrid plant for storing electricity in batteries that is part of a grid-connected wind farm in Spain. The company has also developed simulation software that will be used in the plant, for which it has been awarded the ‘Eolo Innovation’ prize for by the Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE). These two projects make the company a pioneer in this kind of solutions, aimed at facilitating the integration of variable-generation renewables into the grid and optimizing the management of the power produced.

      Younicos to Provide Largest Y.Cube Deployment in U.S.

      Younicos has signed an agreement to deliver a megawatt-scale battery storage system to Austin Energy, as part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-funded initiative known as the Sustainable and Holistic Integration of Energy Storage and Solar PV (SHINES) project. The American-German storage pioneer will collaborate with the project’s prime contractor, Doosan GridTech, to install the 1.75 MW / 3.2 MWh system using the company’s innovative Y.Cube systems. They will be managed by Younicos’s Y.Q software platform, communicating with the Doosan GridTech Intelligent Controller using the MESA (Modular Energy Storage Architecture) open standard. The seven Y.Cubes and Y.Converters represent the company’s largest Y.Cube deployment in the U.S. to date.

      Grid of the Future and Microgrids in Rhode Island: Little State Leapfrogs Leaders

      A lot of states are talking about building a grid of the future and microgrids. But often it seems more like the grid of the far-off future. Not so, however, in Rhode Island. The state is taking advantage of its small size and second-mover position to act fast and avoid problems bogging down other states.

      First Utility-Scale Microgrid in U.S. Enters Service

      Photos taken during the 2012 Hurricane Sandy disaster almost literally turned the spotlight onto microgrids. Images posted on social media and in the news during the storm showed swaths of Manhattan plunged into darkness as power outages cut off electricity to large parts of America’s biggest city. Just as striking, however, were blossoms of light visible against the otherwise black skyline.

      Empower Reveals a ‘Unified Platform’ for Home Solar-Plus-Storage Systems

      Power electronics maker Empower Micro Systems is aiming to make home solar-plus-storage simpler by cutting the amount of equipment that people need to install. Its new Genesys 8K modular smart home energy platform is made up of just two components instead of a minimum of eight offered by competitors. “Where we’re really focusing is to have a unified platform, from a power electronics point of view, that can be applied to residential solar as well as having a modular and scalable system for energy storage,” said Mika Nuotio, Empower’s CEO.

    15. 30K Solar+Storage Homes. 680 Square Miles. Feasible?

      30K Solar+Storage Homes. 680 Square Miles. Feasible?

      27 percent of utilities are expecting to invest in behind the meter storage, according to the recently released Utility Dive “State of the Electric Utility” survey. 24 percent of utilities are already deploying behind the meter storage in pilot projects. 4 percent have already brought it into their core utility operations. Yet despite the optimistic trend—which mirrors the projections of the industry analyst community—and the well-known value streams associated with behind-the-meter storage, there are still relatively few third-party studies that demonstrate, using data from systems installed in the field, how the value of distributed storage can be shared between the customer who hosts the storage on her premise, the distribution grid, and the wholesale market.

      Liebreich: Six Design Principles for the Power Markets of the Future

      For years, the most common question asked by outsiders of those in the clean energy industry was “when will renewable energy be grid-competitive”. Wind and solar needed subsidies in order to compete, and there was legitimate concern that as the sector scaled these would become unaffordable – as indeed they did in Spain, Italy and a number of other European countries.

      Brattle: Wider Electrification Key to Averting Both Climate Change and Utility Death Spiral

      The utility death spiral has been at the center of a debate about how well energy storage plays with solar power, but a new report from The Brattle Group questions death spiral premise and calls for utilities to play a larger role in combating climate change. In the death spiral scenario, renewable energy penetration – facilitated by the ability of energy storage to fill in the gaps of solar and wind generation – fosters a vicious circle of declining utility sales and rising electricity rates.
