    1. Li-ion Battery Oversupply Rebuttal: Govt. is Driving Market, not Economics

      Li-ion Battery Oversupply Rebuttal: Govt. is Driving Market, not Economics
      Lux’s analysis of the large format lithium-ion battery market is fundamentally flawed because it misidentifies the primary driver of EV/PHEV market: Vehicle electrification is not driven by oil prices; it is driven by government policy. Predicting consumer adoption of fuel efficient vehicles based on oil prices is unsound. The number of EV’s and heavy PHEV’s that American consumers will purchase between now and 2020 will have far less to do with the price of petroleum than with the nature of the government incentives and mandates that will drive consumers to make such purchases.

      GM OnStar Pilots Gathering EV Charging Data for Utilities Demand Planning

      Hundreds of regional utility employees will drive leased Chevrolet Volts as their everyday vehicle. Through the OnStar Advanced Telematics Operations Management System (ATOMS), a utility will gain insight into where and when EVs are charged and demand response, which allows the utility to reduce peak demand by shifting EV charging to non-peak hours.

      Report: High Temperature Energy Storage: NaS, NaMx and Molten Salt
      According to a new report by market research publisher SBI Energy, energy storage is a growing market critical to the advancement and optimization of smart grid transmission and distribution operations and to the integration of renewable energies in power generation. High temperature energy storage (HTS) technologies, including sodium-sulfur (NaS), sodium-metal halide NaMx, and molten salt thermal energy storage (TES), are gaining attention as the go-to technologies for large scale and utility scale energy storage.

    7. To Store or Not to Store: That is the Question

      To Store or Not to Store: That is the Question
      Whenever energy storage is mentioned the majority of us think batteries, however from a United States grid perspective, pumped hydro is the incumbent technology, followed by compressed air (CAES) and then the relativity new grid storage concepts of flywheels and electrochemical batteries. This order of preference is also representative of the capital cost, high to low, and the flexibility of deployment low to high—which is the fundamental driver for the growth of large format batteries on the grid. Although the largest potential benefit for storage on the grid is peak load shifting, other benefits are also realized in the form of: load firming, voltage support, frequency regulation, ramp management, community storage and security of the grid.

    8. How Renewables and Storage will Replace German Nukes

      How Renewables and Storage will Replace German Nukes
      Existing energy storage options are being maximised and new battery technologies rolled-out. With more than 17,000MW of installed capacity, Germany boasts more than half the world’s operating photovoltaic solar energy panels. More than 21,000 wind turbines, most of them onshore, provide another 27,000MW, while offshore development of a further 25,000MW in the North Sea is planned by 2030. By 2050, the country expects to generate 80% of its electricity using renewable sources.

    10. Brookings: energy tech, not "green", driving the US clean economy

      Brookings: energy tech, not "green", driving the US clean economy
      The driving force behind the U.S. “clean economy” over the last decade has been emerging energy technologies –- not in other “green” sectors related to buildings and home weatherization, energy-saving consumer products, or efficient appliances. In other words, emerging energy technologies appear to have the greatest job and export growth potential, and this carries important implications for U.S. policy priorities — a conclusion recently echoed in Google’s energy innovation report.

    11. 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.
