    1. FBI orders Mobil Renewable Power Station from Arista Power

      FBI orders Mobil Renewable Power Station from Arista Power
      The MRPS for the FBI includes a patented, ducted WindTamer wind turbine, best in class solar cells, fuel cells, and a state-of-the-art energy storage and power distribution system. The system contains fully compatible AC/DC connectors and grid interconnects, is whisper quiet and produces no heat signature. The system can be transported by commercial vehicles and is designed to replace diesel fuel generators for continuous operations. The FBI will utilize the system to power communications equipment in remote locations.

      BC Hydro, NGK, S&C Electric team on project
      The project involves two 1MW batteries. The battery near Golden will supplement the community’s power supply during peak periods. The battery in Field will store up to seven hours of reliable back up supply that could be used during an outage. The batteries will be supplied by NGK Insulators, and the system will be engineered and installed by S&C Electric Company.

    5. White House Releases "A Policy Framework For The 21st Century Grid"

      White House Releases "A Policy Framework For The 21st Century Grid"
      Energy storage systems have the potential to optimize the operating capabilities of the grid and the use of renewable energy by storing power for later use Such systems can work more effectively in tandem with smart grid technology, can augment demand response resources to reduce and shift peak energy loads, and can improve power quality and service reliability. Significantly, utility-sited energy storage can be used to avoid or delay investments in new distribution capacity and substation equipment. Today, only about 2 5% of U S electricity is provided through storage, although other countries, such as Japan, use storage for up to 15% of their energy needs.

      Utilities Attitudes & Priorities: Survey by Black & Veatch
      Black & Veatch’s Strategic Directions in the Electric Utility Industry survey results have captured the changing electric utility trends in the United States for half a decade. This year’s survey once again explored traditional utility-focused questions regarding operations and regulations, in addition to asking about the timing of emerging technologies and their respective impacts on the industry.

      UK: Wasted wind
      Currently, the actual amount of electricity wasted is very small, as the grid turns off coal rather than waste wind. But as we increase the amount of wind power on the grid, the problems will increase. The government's chief scientific adviser on climate change, Professor David MacKay, says: "We will have to put in complimentary amounts of balancing services, which could be inter-connectors [with Europe], pumped storage, demand shifting or mothballed gas power stations," he says.

    9. Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?

      Is Sodium the Future Formula for Energy Storage?
      “We believe we can sell at under $300 a kilowatt-hour profitably once we are in mass manufacturing,” said Jay Whitacre, CTO of Aquion Energy … General Electric will open a 1MWh sodium metal battery plant in the U.S. next year. The batteries will get deployed for grid storage and powering locomotives next year ... Japan’s NGK has installed approximately 250 GW of sodium sulfur batteries for grid storage in Japan. Thirteen GW have been installed in the U.S.
