    2. Advanced Energy Storage Systems Market To Be Driven By Rising Demand For Utility Scale Energy Generation Till 2022: Grand View Research, Inc.

      Advanced Energy Storage Systems Market To Be Driven By Rising Demand For Utility Scale Energy Generation Till 2022: Grand View Research, Inc.

      As per the estimations of a report published by Grand View Research, Inc.; the global advanced energy storage systems market would reach around USD 6.93 billion by 2022. Rising demand for utility scale energy generation, especially during peak hours is projected to augment the demand for advanced energy storage systems. Such systems efficiently manage power resources, thereby eliminating the need for utility scale energy generation units. This factor significantly reduces fixed costs and thus plays a vital role in boosting the growth of the global market.

    4. 800 Megawatt Bay State Wind US Offshore Project Partners To Combine Energy Storage

      800 Megawatt Bay State Wind US Offshore Project Partners To Combine Energy Storage

      Earlier this month, the 800 megawatt Bay State Wind offshore project being developed jointly by Ørsted and Eversource off the coast of Massachusetts announced a deal which will see it work with local NEC Energy Solutions to develop an energy storage solution for the offshore wind farm. Ørsted, one of the world’s leading offshore wind companies, and Eversource, New England’s premier transmission builder, announced on March 16 that their Bay State Wind partnership had signed a Letter of Intent to work collaboratively with Massachusetts-based NEC Energy Solutions so as to develop an energy storage solution for the 800 megawatt (MW) Bay State Wind. Specifically, they are looking to combine the offshore wind farm with a 55 MW/110 MW-hour (MWh) energy storage option, which upon completion would result in the world’s largest wind-paired energy storage system for commercial-scale energy.

      EDF Signals 10GW Battery Charge

      EDF is planning to develop an additional 10GW of energy storage projects around the world by 2035, on top of the 5GW already operated by the company. The French energy giant said the move represents an investment of €8bn over the 2018-2035 period. Projects will be installed globally. EDF said, however, it aims to become the leader in the residential sector in France and Europe. Africa is also a priority market, it added. New facilities that will be delivered over the next 12 month include at least three battery storage facilities and an extension to battery/solar initiatives in Ghana and the Ivory Coast.

      Lockheed Martin Delivers Energy Storage Systems to Cypress Creek Renewables for Solar-Plus-Storage Projects - Mar 26, 2018

      DALLAS, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Cypress Creek Renewables have commissioned 12 MWh of GridStar™ Lithium energy storage systems for 12 solar-plus-storage projects. The solar-plus-storage system will provide clean electricity to communities served by Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) in southeastern North Carolina. Lockheed Martin's GridStar™ technology ensures that this power is rapidly dispatchable — a key benefit that allows Brunswick EMC to avoid peaking costs and pass the savings to its member-owners in Brunswick and Columbus Counties, as well as small areas of Robeson and Bladen Counties. "These projects provide solar energy to our members and compound the value by delivering it exactly when we need it," said Don Hughes, CEO/general manager of Brunswick EMC. "This collaboration will provide significant value to our members for years to come."

    7. Empowering Utilities to Lead on Energy Efficiency with Rev

      Empowering Utilities to Lead on Energy Efficiency with Rev

      As Governor Cuomo prepares to announce a comprehensive energy efficiency framework on Earth Day and continues to move forward with New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) strategy, it is important to remember the role that utilities can play in advancing energy efficiency. REV, announced four years ago, aims to help New York meet its nation-leading clean energy goals. While New York has a bold program already in place to ensure 50 percent our electricity demand is met with renewable energy like wind and solar by 2030, there is no comparable commitment yet to scale up energy efficiency. To ensure success, New York needs to empower utilities to invest in energy-saving technologies as part of the efficiency framework that the governor plans to announce on, Earth Day, April 22.

      General Electric Energy Storage Offering Built on Speed

      The energy storage business could be worth $103 billion by 2030, so dozens of companies are jockeying for position to capture market share. Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has made the biggest splash, but AES and Siemens creation Fluence, Stem, Total, and General Electric (NYSE: GE) are trying to stake out their piece of the pie as well. GE recently announced a new energy storage offering called Reservoir that's intended to reduce construction time, increase battery life, and improve reliability. It's also building the solution to fit with the way renewable energy projects are being built today, which could make it an attractive offering for developers.

      This Brand New Town Will Be 100% Powered by Solar Energy

      One of the most common attacks on solar energy -- and renewable energy more broadly -- has been that it doesn't produce a consistent flow of electricity 24/7, and is therefore unsuitable to power a large percentage of the electric grid. But a new town in Florida intends to prove that wrong: It's planning to get 100% of its electricity from solar energy and an accompanying energy storage system.

      Trump's Steel Tariffs May Take a Swipe at Battery-Storage Market

      “The tariffs could slow down some of the aggressive cost declines,” Ray Hohenstein, market applications director at energy storage firm Fluence Energy LLC, said in an interview Wednesday at Infocast’s Solar Power Finance & Investment Summit in San Diego, California. To be sure, that shouldn’t have much lasting impact on the industry as other manufacturing costs decrease, Kelly Speakes-Backman, chief executive officer of the Energy Storage Association, said in a phone interview Wednesday. And there may be a workaround: Concrete, which features in the shipping-container-like structures that protect batteries in larger projects, could be used for smaller battery packs.

      Tesla and Fluence to Supply 55MW/80MWh of Battery Storage to Victoria, with One Solar Farm Retrofit

      Tesla and Fluence are to supply Victoria’s first two large-scale, grid-connected energy storage batteries, one of which will be connected to an existing solar farm. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) will match the AU$25 million by the Victorian Government to jointly fund the lithium-ion battery projects as part of the Victorian energy storage initiative. Both projects are aimed at helping to ease constraints on transmission lines in Western Victoria where energy generation from existing wind and solar farms is being curtailed. Half the funding will go towards a 25MW/50MWh battery co-located and integrated with the 60MW Gannawarra Solar Farm, near Kerang. The battery will be supplied by Tesla and then owned by Edify Energy and its partner Wirsol. It will show how existing PV projects can be successfully retrofitted with battery storage.

      New Business Models May be the Next Frontier in Lower Energy Storage Costs

      s the markets for energy storage continue to grow and companies in those markets mature, business models and financing mechanisms are getting more attention. Those models can involve alternatives to a traditional asset sale approach that can reduce the cost of entry for potential customers and lower the cost of capital for energy storage companies. The trend was highlighted last week when Younicos announced its energy storage rental service. Renting energy storage equipment was an obvious step for Younicos, given that its corporate parent, Aggreko, rents power generation equipment on a global scale.

      California’s recent droughts and ongoing need to economise water use have inspired more commercial energy storage at a local water board, with ENGIE Storage delivering a project for the San Diego Water Authority. The new battery energy storage project is expected to save the Authority (SDWA) US$100,000 per year on its energy costs. The batteries will be used to store low-cost solar energy for use during peak times and times of low solar generation. SDWA and ENGIE Storage, which was formerly known as Green Charge prior to its acquisition by the European utility, struck up a deal for the project in May 2017.
