    1. S&C Electric to Furnish a Turnkey NaS Storage System

      S&C Electric to Furnish a Turnkey NaS Storage System
      Southern California Edison (SCE) awarded S&C Electric a contract to furnish a turnkey 1-MW S&C Smart Grid SMS™ Storage Management System on Catalina Island, California. With no tie to the mainland, Catalina's diesel generators are not best equipped to handle power demand, which fluctuates throughout the day. By deploying stored energy during times of peak power demand, the Smart Grid SMS with NaS batteries permits Catalina Island generators to run at a specific percentage of capacity for optimal performance and decreased carbon emissions.

    2. Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy

      Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy
      The basic premise of alternative energy is that widespread deployments of wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles will slash hydrocarbon consumption, reduce CO2 emissions and give us a cleaner, greener and healthier planet. That premise, however, is fatally flawed because our planet cannot produce enough non-ferrous industrial metals to make a meaningful difference and the prices of those metals are even more volatile than the prices of the hydrocarbons that alternative energy hopes to supplant.

      DoD Examines 200K Plug-In Electric Vehicles With Grid Storage
      The DOD is at the genesis of large-scale integration of plug-in electric vehicles into its non-tactical ground fleet. Medium duty trucks, which are currently the largest fuel consumer in the DOD non-tactical fleet, are a top target for this integration. On June 16 the DOD released a request for information to engage stakeholders in a to achieve "total cost of ownership parity" -- in other words, a budget-neutral program.

    5. Bright Energy's Underwater CAES 'Bag'

      Bright Energy's Underwater CAES 'Bag'
      Bright Energy's core technology is a long, flexible polymer/glass bag shaped like a giant sea cucumber. One end of the bag is attached to an air hose on the surface. A self-standing system with its own generator could produce power for under 6 cents a kilowatt hour, the CTO said. If you could latch onto a generator at an offshore wind farm, the costs could potentially drop to 2.5 cents.

    6. 1GW Solar Thermal Project at Blythe, CA Breaks Ground

      1GW Solar Thermal Project at Blythe, CA Breaks Ground
      Back in April, the DoE extended its largest conditional loan guarantee for a solar project – $2.1 billion to support a concentrating solar thermal power plant near Blythe, California. Last Friday, the Blythe Solar Power Project broke ground, beginning construction of a project that upon completion will generate 1,000 megawatts of solar power, enough to power more than 300,000 single-family homes a year.

    7. Little State Money for Utility Upgrades

      Little State Money for Utility Upgrades
      Tight budgets affect electric utilities that need to find their own financing to pay for upgrades. It's a complicated process that in many states requires approval of the public utility commission for any rate increases. One Senate proposal would use $10 billion in federal seed money to establish an independent bank that gives out loans and loan guarantees to major infrastructure projects.
