    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.

    3. GM OnStar Pilots Gathering EV Charging Data for Utilities Demand Planning

      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.

    9. 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.
