      Panasonic Eyes Storage Boost as Japan's Solar Incentives Wane

      The government’s scaling back of a program encouraging residential solar power has Panasonic Corp. hopeful the market for home energy storage systems is about to receive a boost. In 2019, a program designed to buy back solar power flowing from rooftop panels at above-market rates will start becoming less enticing, potentially leaving homeowners who signed up with excess power on their hands. Osaka-based Panasonic is anticipating that installations of energy storage systems combined with solar panels will rise as a result.

      Calif. Regulator Emphasizes Importance of Setting Storage Targets

      Carla Peterman, a commissioner with the California Public Utilities Commission, said that among the many takeaways for regulators from California’s experience with energy storage deployment is the importance of setting targets.Peterman made her remarks at an Energy Storage Policy Forum in Washington, DC, which was hosted by the Energy Storage Association and held on Feb. 15. She said that setting energy storage targets is important because such a move sends a signal to the market and to utilities. “I think that’s been a real measure of success, that we’ve seen so much procurement happen outside of the target RFOs [requests for offers]” issued by the state’s investor-owned utilities, Peterman said in her remarks at the ESA event.

      Two States Now Racing for 100% Clean Energy

      California is one of the country’s leading renewable energy states. As of 2014, it was ranked #4 in hydroelectric production, #2 in net renewable production, and #1 in solar energy production.It’s also home to the first Tesla factory, located in Fremont. This connection alone puts California in the clean energy spotlight. So when state officials announced their intention to cover 50% of California’s energy demand with renewables by 2030, no one was surprised.

      More Than 3 Million in US Now Work in Clean Energy

       On Wednesday, February 22, national business groups representing the range and breadth of clean energy companies in the United States cheered government statistics showing their industries support more than 3 million American jobs – equal to the employment of retail stores across the country, and twice as many jobs as involved in construction of buildings. This is based on 2016 data recently released by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in its second annual U.S. Energy and Employment Report. DOE does not offer a definition of "clean energy," and the trade associations representing different portions of the industry have their own ways of defining what "clean energy" represents. But the groups all agree that, in the aggregate, these jobs add up to more than 3 million nationwide.

      Engie S A : The rise of solar energy

      There are a number of reasons that explain the boom in solar energy: installations are more powerful and less expensive, investments have been stepped up, and more encouraging regulations have been introduced. As a result, in more and more countries, industrial operators and electricity producers such as ENGIE are focusing on this solution of the future. The sun is a source of energy with considerable potential to fight against climate change, stimulate growth and enable widespread access to energy: it is virtually unlimited, easily available, present in practically every country in the world, non carbon-emitting, and can be exploited on either a small-scale or a large-scale basis. At the present time, there is no technological barrier holding back the energy transition towards solar energy. It is rather financial and legal issues that are restraining it, but these are in the process of changing all around the world. The time for solar energy has dawned.

      New Utility Program Hopes to Stimulate Sustainable Energy Storage Growth

      There is considerable debate throughout the energy storage industry about what the optimal location is for energy storage systems (ESSs) to provide the most value. Systems can be installed either behind the meter (BTM) for individual customers, or located strategically on the utility side of the grid. While these two types of systems are typically designed for different purposes, the advances being made in storage software platforms are blurring the lines between these markets and the specific services they are able to provide. A recently proposed energy storage program from utility Consolidated Edison (Con Ed) is hoping to capture the most advantageous aspects of both approaches.
