    1. Grid order's unintended clean energy consequence

      Grid order's unintended clean energy consequence

      Concern is particularly acute for the energy storage sector, which was on track to add record levels of battery capacity this year before the coronavirus crisis hit. DOE will release a rulemaking proposal within 150 days that details what devices will be singled out for bans or increased oversight. But Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the Energy Storage Association, said members need clarification as soon as this week if all the sector's planned projects are to move forward.

    3. Southern California Edison Contracts Mammoth Energy Storage Portfolio to Replace California Gas Plants

      Southern California Edison Contracts Mammoth Energy Storage Portfolio to Replace California Gas Plants

      The California utility’s 770-megawatt battery storage procurement, among the largest ever seen, faces a tough deadline in August 2021. Southern California Edison has signed seven contracts for a combined 770 megawatts of grid battery projects, one of the biggest single procurements of its kind. The utility wants to switch them on by August 2021, which would be a record-fast turnaround for projects of that magnitude.

      Calif. utility inks largest U.S. battery purchase in history

      Southern California Edison said late last week it had finalized what analysts called the nation's largest-ever purchase of battery storage, as the state of California seeks to ramp up renewables and retire gas-fired plants in coming years. The new storage in Southern California tops the 590 MW contracted by NV Energy in Nevada last year, making it the largest single procurement in the United States, said Jason Burwen, vice president for policy at the Energy Storage Association. "This is the biggest single procurement of battery energy storage projects that we are aware of," wrote Burwen in an email.

      Energy Storage Still Expects Year-Over-Year Growth | Electrical Contractor Magazine

      While electric utilities and renewable energy associations have noted the negative impact of the pandemic on employment, performance and supply chains in their industries, energy storage seems to be doing relatively well. That said, “the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the energy storage industry tremendously,” said Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of the ESA. “While we still anticipate year-over-year growth, it is clear our industry is suffering with immediate and significant risks of workforce reduction and economic damage.”

      Public Utilities: The New Buyers of Energy Storage

      There’s no doubt that 2019 was a tipping point for announcements from investor-owned utilities about large-scale new energy storage and hybrid storage projects. We also witnessed dramatically increased project sizes and combination approaches, with stunning price decreases and shorter deployment schedules. Between 2016 and 2019, approximately 28 U.S. utilities proposed nearly eight gigawatts of storage. And some of the multi-hundred-megawatt procurement announcements by large investor-owned utilities like Nevada Energy, Arizona Public Service, Florida Power and Light, Hawaiian Electric Company, and Southern California Edison are indeed record-breaking.

      Proposed 2.2 GW Storage Project Plans to Use Navajo Coal Station Power-Lines

      A proposal to build a 2.2 GW pumped hydro storage facility in Arizona moved one step closer to reality last week, after the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) accepted its application for a preliminary permit. The $3.6 billion project would be built at a U.S. Bureau of Reclamation reservoir on the Colorado River, and rely on transmission infrastructure that was part of the retired Navajo Generating Station coal facility. It would deliver power to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

      US Battery Storage Prospects Lifted by Policy Progress, Cost Reduction

      Battery storage deployment in the US is set for a rapid acceleration from 2020. That is one of the key takeaways from the latest S&P Global Platts Analytics’ US Power Storage Outlook, released to clients on December 18. In addition, while megawatt deployments in 2019 were at 2018 levels, the storage duration of battery storage assets increased in the past years, pointing to new usages. State policies and peaking capacity needs will remain the major drivers of near to medium-term battery deployments. Platts Analytics expects more than 13 GW of utility-scale battery storage to be commissioned by 2024 in the US.
