    1. Solar (w/ Storage) Will Move Appalachia From Coal

      Solar (w/ Storage) Will Move Appalachia From Coal
      Figure 7 shows the decrease in the consumer price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for solar energy over time. This cost includes the cost to install solar, install energy storage (beginning in 2020), maintain the solar array, and building the transmission infrastructure. While this decrease may not look like much at first glance, it’s much more desirable than the dramatic cost increases in Figure 8 if we were to stick with coal.

      VYCON Discusses its Flywheel Benefits
      VYCON’s flywheel requires "15 minutes of maintenance annually and that is non-disruptive". Most flywheels are configured to provide 20 seconds of full load. Even when customers retain their batteries, battery hardening occurs because the flywheel removes most of the stress from the batteries for those 10-second-or-less disruptions. This extends the battery life and customers still have a choice in using batteries or not. VYCON’s flywheel has a 20-year use life.

      UK Dept Risking "NEGawatt" Market by Lack of Payment Clarity
      The Department of Energy and Climate Change confirmed last week that it will develop a policy that will set out the role of electricity demand management initiatives, energy storage systems, new interconnection links to the continent, and the roll out smart grid technologies. The DECC has been warned it risks harming investor confidence in the UK's emerging "negawatt market", after failing to reveal how it will administer payments for back-up plants and demand management schemes.

    5. Report by Pike: “Energy Storage on the Grid”

      Report by Pike: “Energy Storage on the Grid”
      Pike Research anticipates that among the various application segments in this market, the integration of renewable energy – primarily wind power – will represent approximately 50% of the total capacity deployed for long duration energy storage. The firm forecasts that load leveling/peak shifting will represent 31% of the total market, followed by arbitrage (12%) and T&D upgrade deferral (7%).

    6. MIT Research: a thermal battery for storing solar

      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.

    8. 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?

    9. SDG&E & SolarGen2 Sign 25yr, 150MW Power Purchase Agreement

      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.
