      RES Begins Construction of EDP Renewables’ Hog Creek Wind Project
      Broomfield, CO – Renewable Energy Systems (RES), a leader in the development, construction, and operation of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in the Americas, is pleased to announce that construction has begun on the Hog Creek Wind Project located in Hardin County, OH. The project, owned by EDP Renewables (EDPR), is on schedule to be operational before the end of 2017 and will provide enough clean electricity to power approximately 19,000 Ohio homes. RES completed the project development and transferred Hog Creek wind project ownership to EDPR in 2017.

    2. During Irma’s Power Outages, Some Houses Kept The Lights On With Solar And Batteries

      During Irma’s Power Outages, Some Houses Kept The Lights On With Solar And Batteries

      When Hurricane Irma blew out a transformer on his block in Orlando on the night of September 10, Andy Green–like most of the people on his street, and millions of people throughout Florida–lost power from the grid. But Green, who installed Tesla’s Powerwall home battery storage in early August, kept his lights on. “We didn’t have full power–we couldn’t have the whole house running–but we cut it down to the bare minimum, like air conditioning, refrigeration, internet, that sort of thing,” says Green. Though power is still out in parts of Orlando, electricity on his block came back from the grid 21 hours later. While it was off, Green’s Powerwall, connected to the solar panels on his roof, kept going. When the clouds parted the next day, the battery started recharging.

      'Game Changer': UK Developer Anesco Retains Green Incentives on Adding Energy Storage to Solar PV

      National gas and electricity market regulator Ofgem has made a “game changer” decision for UK energy storage, by confirming that solar farms are able to retain accreditation under the government Renewables Obligation (RO) when supplying electricity to batteries. The first beneficiary of the decision is energy efficiency solutions provider and solar farm developer Anesco, which confirmed this morning that it is now the first commercial solar farm operator in the country to retain accreditation for three of its 5MW sites, all of which are connected to 1.1MWh batteries though shared grid connections.

      Energy Department Expands Goals for Solar Power Initiative

      A Department of Energy effort to lower the cost of solar power has hit a key goal thee years early, officials said Tuesday. The agency is also set to expand the goals of its SunShot Initiative and pump new funding into reducing costs and expanding energy storage, the department announced.The price of electricity generated by utility-scale solar photovoltaic systems fell to $0.06 per kilowatt hour this year, achieving a 2020 goal of the SunShot program three years early. Prices for residential and commercial systems are 86 percent and 89 percent toward achieving their price goals, the Energy Department reported.

    6. Is the DOE Really in Love with all of the Above?

      Is the DOE Really in Love with all of the Above?

      Nearly four weeks after it was released, we are still marveling at how the U.S. Department of Energy’s much anticipated grid generation report could seemingly make everyone happy and angry at the same time. In some ways, it seems that readers of the DOE’s “Staff Report to the Energy Secretary on Electricity Markets and Reliability” saw endorsements for new technologies that, in fact, the report was calling into question. And they may be ignoring what that could mean in the future. “Staff Report” did not re-invent the turbine, but will provide fuel for thought in the years ahead. Our great nation is at a crossroads, where the road from one-way, fossil-fueled generation is turning in the direction of two-way, highly automated and renewable-friendly generation. There is no going back…

      8.3 GW of Solar PV Managed by GreenPowerMonitor Including 10 Projects Larger Than 100 MW

      LAS VEGAS, Nevada, US - 12 September 2017 - DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body, announced a key milestone today with GreenPowerMonitor (GPM) providing monitoring, control and asset management solutions for 10 uber-large PV energy power plants in production globally. The total solar PV capacity monitored by GPM is currently 8.3 GW and is expected to reach 9 GW by the end of the year. According to DNV GL’s Energy Transition Outlook 2017, Solar PV is expected to become a major contributor to the energy supply of the future and play a significant role in decreasing the world’s carbon footprint. By 2050, PV will provide around a third of the world’s electricity representing an increase of 85 times compared to 2015.

      Utilities See Benefits in Energy Storage, Even Without Mandates

      The fact that California’s three investor-owned utilities were at the top of the Smart Electric Power Alliance’s recent rankings is not surprising, but the presence of utilities in Indiana and Ohio is notable. California has been a leader in energy storage, with a 2010 law that requires the state’s IOUs to procure 1.3 GW of storage capacity by 2020 and then a 2016 law requiring each IOU to procure another 166 MW of storage.

      Good Energy, one of the first utilities in Britain to offer all-renewable energy for consumers, has said it aims to start work on its maiden commercial energy storage development in November this year. In March this year the clean energy utility announced that it was to move into the battery storage sector as part of a significant restructuring of its offering. In May the company also launched a US$10 million corporate bond offer to fund work in the stationary energy storage and EV charger sectors.

    11. Grid Resiliency and Critical Lessons Learned from Hurricane Harvey

      Grid Resiliency and Critical Lessons Learned from Hurricane Harvey

      While the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the West’s wildfires are fresh in our minds, it’s critical to start focusing on grid resiliency — and how distributed energy can contribute to it. Utilities and state regulators right now focus more on grid reliability than grid resiliency, said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association (ESA). But the two are very different. “Reliability is about normal operations and the grid being able to run with scheduled down times of generation and scheduled operations and maintenance — to be able to count on it when you’ve scheduled it,” she said.

    13. Choosing the Right Grid Infrastructure in the wake of the DOE Grid Study

      Choosing the Right Grid Infrastructure in the wake of the DOE Grid Study

      Since its release last week, the Department of Energy’s grid study has been under the harsh scrutiny of a broad range of industry players.The study was roundly criticized well in advance of its release by many stakeholders expecting it to unjustifiably blame renewable energy for the challenges facing the grid. Thankfully, the study that emerged last week has failed to live up to those fears. Instead, the report is generally fact-based and well-researched, and the key findings–that low natural gas prices and flagging load growth are primarily to blame for the economic crunch facing coal and nuclear power plants and that renewables pose no threat to our grid–are well-documented and well-understood by stakeholders ranging from the U.S. military to utility CEOs.

The main takeaways of the report were clear: in the midst of a rapidly changing energy mix, much more needs to be done to reform electricity markets to incorporate the significant value of resiliency and flexibility into markets.

      Venture capital investors once again are getting charged up over new battery technologies. The quest to build a better battery has occupied venture investors for nearly a decade, since the initial clean technology investment bubble of the mid-2000s. Now, some of those same investors are returning to invest in battery businesses, drawn by the promise of novel chemistries and new materials that aim to make more powerful, smaller and safer batteries.
