      MIT Research: a thermal battery for storing solar
      MIT engineers have been making inroads in chemically storing the sun’s energy as heat rather than electricity. The idea is to develop a thermal battery that can take in and release solar energy on demand, and over and over again ... "You’ve got a material that both converts and stores energy. It’s robust, it doesn’t degrade, and it’s cheap," said Jeffrey Grossman.

      Opinion: Upcoming Massive Glut of Li-ion Batteries

      Lux forecasts a catastrophic supply and demand imbalance in the lithium-ion battery sector over the next decade … The Lux forecast is bad news for diversified first tier manufacturers like LG Chem, GS Yuasa, SB LiMotive, AESC, and Sanyo; terrible news for financially sound second tier manufacturers like Toshiba, Hitachi, and JCI-Saft; and an "existential threat" for emerging third tier battery developers like A123 Systems (AONE), Ener1 (HEV), Valence Technologies (VLNC) … that were counting on transportation markets that are unlikely to develop.

    3. Opinion: The Missing Strategy for Storage

      Opinion: The Missing Strategy for Storage
      The reason that electricity is not stored in large quantities on the U.S. electricity grid today (other than 21.5 gigawatts of pumped storage hydropower) is because it is still generally less expensive to generate an electron than to store it. What is the case for government investment (either directly or through tax credits) in grid-connected energy storage technology? Why can’t the government leave development of grid-connected energy storage to the private sector alone?

      SDG&E & SolarGen2 Sign 25yr, 150MW Power Purchase Agreement
      Solar Gen 2, a private solar development firm, signed a 25-year, 150-megawatt (MW) power purchase agreement (PPA) with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), a subsidiary of Sempra Energy. The photovoltaic solar project consists of three separate 50-MW sites where construction should begin during the first quarter of 2012 and expects to be completed by the third quarter of 2012. The Solar Project is located on private, fallowed land in the Imperial County, California.

    6. Google Profits From Tax Credit for $750M Cleantech Investments

      Google Profits From Tax Credit for $750M Cleantech Investments
      Google Inc. (GOOG) plans to ramp up its $750 million investment in clean energy projects by taking advantage of tax rules to channel more funds into wind, solar and other renewable power sources. All except two of the company’s investments in clean energy projects were structured as tax-equity financing, tapping government incentives that encourage large companies to back promising projects that often have yet to generate income.
