    1. Exports A Big Opportunity for US Advanced Battery Manufacturers

      Exports A Big Opportunity for US Advanced Battery Manufacturers

      At first blush, the idea of finding lucrative markets in developing countries for advanced U.S. technology that the domestic U.S. markets are still largely unwilling to adopt sounds bizarre. But there is logic to it. In developing countries where the electricity grid is not large, complicated and reliable, investments in grid-connected energy storage will have a noticeable and immediate impact on reliability. Moreover, even relatively expensive grid-connected energy storage systems may be seen by developing world grid operators as a less expensive investment than investing in the incumbent technology necessary to bring their grid to First World standards.

    3. CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects

      CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects
      Although the Solar Trust case only deals with one project, it could lead to more requests from developers to have the commission oversee PV power plants. That could, in effect, strip counties and cities of the ability to have the final say on PV power projects (if a project is on federal land, then the federal government is in charge).

    4. Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage

      Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage
      At the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant in Sakai, Kansai Electric Power introduced an energy storage facility accommodating 48 nickel hydride batteries near KEPCO's substation … At Sakai, up to 10,000 kilowatts of electricity is generated during the current trial run ahead of the full operation starting in October. On cloudy and rainy days, however, the output drops to around 5,000 kilowatts and 2,000 kilowatts, respectively. To make up for the gap and achieve stable supply, KEPCO plans to release electricity accumulated in the energy storage facility on sunny days. Since the utility did not adopt highly-efficient lithium-ion batteries at the energy storage facility for financial reasons, there is a limit to the amount of electricity it can cover on bad weather days. Despite being the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant, its output is roughly one-hundredth of that of a nuclear reactor.

    5. Valence's Patent Appeal Upheld by Canadian Court

      Valence's Patent Appeal Upheld by Canadian Court
      Valence prevailed in the appeal of a patent infringement lawsuit regarding the Company's carbothermal reduction technology. The Canadian lawsuit was filed against Phostech Lithium, Inc. on January 31, 2007. Valence received a favorable judgment by the Trial Court this past February which was subsequently appealed by Phostech. Canada's Federal Court of Appeal heard the appeal the week of June 6, 2011 and yesterday [8/17/11] ruled in Valence's favor, dismissing the appeal with costs.

      County Clears 550MW Desert Sunlight Project
      First Solar's Desert Sunlight solar project near Desert Center got the green light Tuesday from Riverside County supervisors, clearing the way for construction to begin on the 550-megawatt photovoltaic project. The board unanimously approved permits for the project and a franchise agreement under which First Solar will pay the county $600,000 a year to compensate for the project's long-term environmental and economic affects. The company is also providing a letter of guarantee that the county will receive more than $10 million in sales tax during construction.
