    1. 'Germany's Largest' EV Battery-Powered Stationary Storage System Will Give Grid Flexibility

      'Germany's Largest' EV Battery-Powered Stationary Storage System Will Give Grid Flexibility

      A battery storage project using second-life electric vehicle (EV) batteries is set to be built in Germany, with an aim of developing an installed capacity of 20MW. The project is being billed as the largest stationary electricity storage system using EV batteries in Germany, following on from an initial 45MW project in France. The stationary storage system is to be built using EV batteries compiled in containers, using both second-life batteries and new batteries stored for future use in standard replacement during after-sales operations.

    3. The Future of Energy Storage Is Here: An Inside Look at Rocky Mountain Power's 600-Battery DR Project

      The Future of Energy Storage Is Here: An Inside Look at Rocky Mountain Power's 600-Battery DR Project

      The first residents of an all-electric and energy efficient community — the largest battery demand response project in the United States — are settling into new apartments. Their cars are tucked neatly beneath solar panel covers and their electric cars can plug into charging ports. Inside each apartment in the Soleil Lofts development, a battery is humming. When complete, the planned community's 22 buildings will have 600 apartment units with 12.6 MWh of battery storage, 5.2 MW of solar panels, 150 stalls of EV chargers and an overriding focus on energy efficiency. Utility access to the 600 batteries will turn the complex into a grid resource.

      Battery System to Provide Frequency Regulation for PJM

      A 72 MW/72 MWH battery system owned by a global independent power producer is expected to soon start providing grid services in PJM territory, signaling the storage industry’s increasing maturation and ability to compete with traditional resources. Industry supporters have argued that getting more storage online to support renewables integration and provide other grid benefits would require compensation schemes that allow storage to compete.

      Storage Bill Expanding Utility Rate Recovery Options for Battery Projects Clears Senate Committee

      With bipartisan support, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee last week advanced a comprehensive energy storage package, reported as an amendment to the Better Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Act. Introduced by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, the BEST Act would require the federal government to support energy storage research and demonstration projects. Along with the attached bills, it would open a standardized path for utilities to recover storage costs in federal rate proceedings. The measure now heads to the full Senate, where supporters say there is enthusiasm.

      Solar-plus-storage to provide all the daytime electric needs of nation state – pv magazine International

      The Republic of Nauru, like many Pacific Ocean island states relies almost entirely on diesel generators for its power. However, the government has decided raise the share of renewables in the power mix of the 21km² nation from 3% to 47% with a large-scale solar-plus-storage project. The power plant will have a solar capacity of 6 MW and 5 MW/2.5 MWh of storage. The system will be fully automated and integrated with the existing diesel system to optimize solar energy use, enable optimal battery energy storage system charging and discharging and allow optimal shut-off of the diesel engines.

      CalCom Energy’s $100M Fund Targets Farms for Solar-Battery Systems

      In California, it’s not just vulnerable families and critical services that could use battery-backed solar systems to ride through wildfire-prevention power outages. Farms also have critical energy needs, like pumping water to crops on set schedules, or chilling them after harvest, that could face significant disruption under the state’s new wildfire prevention regime. CalCom Energy, a long-time solar and energy services provider for California’s agricultural sector, thinks it has a solution. This week, the Fresno-based developer launched a $100 million Agriculture Energy Infrastructure Fund, aimed at combining low-cost solar power-purchase agreements with the backup power of energy storage.

      From Science Project to Money Maker: Energy Storage Hits Inflection Point

      In 2014, the vast majority of storage projects Greensmith Energy was working on might have best been described as science projects, often dependent on grants or utility R&D budgets devoted to figuring out emerging technologies. Today, potential projects are evaluated primarily on their business case. The reason most energy storage projects these days are driven by solid financial returns is because there are more and more ways to generate revenue. It’s a testament to just how much the economics of battery storage and the renewables it supports have improved in less than a few years.

      Ameresco, Inc. has announced the completion of a comprehensive energy storage project on behalf of Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The project began in 2015 when Ameresco secured two Energy Storage Facility Agreements from the IESO to design, build, own and operate 2 MW, four-hour “Battery Solid” energy storage systems. These recently completed systems provide 16 MWh in overall energy storage capacity. Both systems absorb power during periods of excess energy supply and deliver it back to the grid when energy demand is high.
