    1. French €30M project to test integrating renewables and batteries.

      French €30M project to test integrating renewables and batteries.

      Alstom is partnering with Electricité Réseau Distribution France (ERDF), EDF SA, SAFT, and other industrial partners, to test new energy management technologies while integrating renewable energies and batteries. The €30 million project will take place on France’s Côte d’Azur and is funded by the French General Commission for Investment (CGI) and the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) will help fund the project; while the European Union will be the other major public contributor.

    2. Fraunhofer Off-grid PV Farming Solutions Without Storage

      Fraunhofer Off-grid PV Farming Solutions Without Storage
      The Fraunhofer energy management system monitors the amount of energy produced and then ensures that it is delivered to the devices that need it most. To illustrate, a submersible pump, which is 105 feet deep, can be powered to fill a reservoir when energy is available and the irrigation pump or desalination unit at other times. Only a relatively small battery is needed to ensure the CPV tracker and measuring system remains powered.

    3. Maui Rent-A-Space Co. installing 600kW Grid-Connected Solar Project

      Maui Rent-A-Space Co. installing 600kW Grid-Connected Solar Project
      AAAAA Rent-A-Space, a storage facility and commercial center in Honokowai, announced it has begun construction on the largest commercial photovoltaic power generation system in Maui County. The 600-kilowatt system will contribute to the state’s “feed-in tariff” program, with the capacity to feed 2880 kilowatt-hours into the island’s electrical grid each day, enough clean, renewable energy to power up to 220 Maui homes.

    4. Economics of EV Battery Reuse [promo for NAATBatt Annual Conference]

      Economics of EV Battery Reuse [promo for NAATBatt Annual Conference]
      Most of the discussion about reuse has centered on what the residual uses of the batteries are going to be. Many have talked about (and several are investigating) the repurposing of EV batteries for grid-connected energy storage. Use in residential power back-up and vehicle recharging station applications is also possible. The Chinese have mentioned plans to use repurposed EV batteries in street lights. The highest and best use of repurposed EV batteries is, however, still very much an open question.

    6. Report: Inverters Compete Against Batteries in Smart Grid

      Report: Inverters Compete Against Batteries in Smart Grid
      According to a new IMS Research report, features such as reactive power, smart grid interaction and energy storage are transforming inverters from simple power-conversion units into essential components of grid infrastructure. These advancements will radically change the PV inverter market over the next five years, the report notes.

    7. Opinion: Repeal Govt Subsidies for Energy

      Opinion: Repeal Govt Subsidies for Energy
      In 2007, American taxpayers subsidized government-preferred energy sources to the tune of nearly $17 billion. Increasingly, it is politicians in Washington who decide how Americans produce and consume energy. But subsidies for special interests stifle competition, raise energy prices, and decrease economic opportunities. It is time for Washington to eliminate all government subsidies and special policy treatments that benefit certain industries at the expense of others. Energy companies should rely on innovation and efficiency, not American taxpayers, to thrive in a system of free enterprise.

    8. Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader

      Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader
      In the Smart City initiative, storage will come in the form of lithium-ion batteries. There are four small-scale trials overall, including ammonia to hydrogen/nitrogen, graphite, zinc bromine and ultrabatteries. Some of the most dynamic homegrown startups (Wizard Power, ZBB Energy, RedFlow, Ecoult) are also located at the intersection of renewables and storage.

    9. 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.
