    1. Energy Storage Industry Pushes for Clarity on Tax Credit Eligibility

      Energy Storage Industry Pushes for Clarity on Tax Credit Eligibility

      A coalition of groups led by the Energy Storage Association (ESA) is calling on lawmakers in the U.S. House and Senate to clarify that energy storage systems qualify for the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), an incentive they say could help clean energy companies obtain financing, compete internationally and grow. Bipartisan legislation in both houses of Congress would "ensure a level playing field" for storage resources, according to ESA. The Energy Storage Tax Incentive and Deployment Act (H.R. 4649 / S. 1868) would apply to utility-scale battery projects as well as smaller residential systems.

      CEO Statement on Broad Coalition’s Support for Including Storage as an Eligible Technology in ITC

      Today the Energy Storage Association (ESA), along with a broad-based coalition comprised of other energy trade and advocacy groups, strongly urges congressional leadership to clarify eligibility of energy storage for the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) before the end of the year in a move that that would level the playing field across all energy technologies and bolster an industry that supports over 90,000 U.S. jobs and counting.

    5. How Battery Storage Is Changing The Renewable Energy Game

      How Battery Storage Is Changing The Renewable Energy Game

      The mass adoption and implementation of solar energy in South African homes and businesses has been rapidly increasing over the past few years. But, going completely “off grid” has so far been held back by the expense of storing power from renewable sources. But this is changing, as the technology is available, and becoming more affordable, for dramatically reducing the reliance on state utility, Eskom, for electricity in South Africa.

      Adara Power Installs SGIP-Funded Energy Storage at California Almond Farm

      Adara Power, a privately-held commercial energy storage company, announces an SGIP-funded deployment and commissioning of an intelligent energy storage system at Violich Farms in Orland, CA. The California Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides financial incentives for the installation of energy storage in order to reduce green-house gas emissions and improve the stability of the grid. Adara Power partnered with Chico Electric, an electrical and solar general contractor, to design, build and commission the 330kWh lithium-ion battery coupled to a 175kW solar array. The energy storage system discharges during peak electricity usage and saves money through reduced demand charges.

      Lockheed Martin, Cypress Creek Renewables Win Prestigious Energy Storage Award

      Lockheed Martin and Cypress Creek Renewables won an award for leadership in energy storage and having a positive impact on the energy storage industry. The two companies were the recipients of the prestigious Energy Storage North America (ESNA) 2018 Innovation Award for the creation of Lockheed’s GridStar Lithium Energy Storage System for 12 solar-plus-storage projects. The system is custom-designed to provide clean electricity to communities served by Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) in southeastern North Carolina. The GridStar energy storage systems store power from the solar installations and discharge it when needed most, ensuring energy delivery to Brunswick EMC during its peak periods.

      The Energy Storage Association had a big year in 2018, cresting with the approval of FERC Order 841, the first federal directive on storage participation in wholesale markets. Their success is the product of a concerted lobbying effort that’s seen them win bipartisan allies both on the Hill and at the Commission. How is ESA navigating the polarized politics of Washington? Host Gavin Bade spoke with CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman and Vice President of Policy Jason Burwen to find out.

      Battery Storage to Become $1.2trn Market, with Australia Leading the Way

      Australia is set to lead the global energy storage boom, which according to a report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) will grow to a $1.2trn industry. The global energy storage market is set to draw in $1.2trn investment by 2040 and the cost of batteries is also set to significantly decrease. The report, entitled the Long-Term Energy Storage Outlook, predicts a strong uptake of stationary energy storage, thanks to households trying to maximise solar self-generation and networks working to balance increasingly renewable grids.

      Puerto Rico Seeks 100 Percent Renewable Energy

      In the wake of Hurricane Maria, the Puerto Rican government is proposing the enactment of the Puerto Rico Energy Public Policy Act, a bill focusing on committing the island to a 100 percent renewable energy grid by 2050. Senate Bill 1121 was introduced by the chairman of the Senate Special Committee on Energy Affairs, Larry Seilhamer, and Senate Minority Leader Eduardo Bhatia. The bill’s purpose is to eliminate the monopoly held for decades by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) by allowing the sale of PREPA’s power plants while putting the transmission and distribution systems under a private concessionaire. Consequently, the strategy would begin to shift the power grid away from its resilience on oil and toward renewables.

      EMA in Energy Storage Tie-up with PSA, Sembcorp Industries , Energy & Commodities

      SOLAR is the most viable source of renewable energy for Singapore, but to fully exploit its green potential calls for the use of one game-changing technology. The Energy Market Authority (EMA) has roped in two private sector partners, PSA and Sembcorp Industries to help roll out on a commercial scale, the use of Energy Storage Systems (ESS). ESS is akin to a large storage to capture unused energy. On the one hand, an ESS can help mitigate the intermittency of solar, wind and other renewable sources. On the other, it allows power grid operators to defer capital-intensive capacity expansion.
