    5. The Big Chill: Highview's Solution To The Challenge Of Long-Duration Energy Storage

      The Big Chill: Highview's Solution To The Challenge Of Long-Duration Energy Storage

      In early June, Highview Power announced that it had officially launched its first grid-scale liquid air energy storage (LAES) plant at the Viridor Pilsworth site in Bury, United Kingdom (just outside of Manchester). This five megawatt (MW)/15 megawatt hour (MWh) facility is on the small side to truly earn the title of grid-scale, but that may be beside the point. The critical issue to consider here is that this new technology may ultimately prove to be a cost-effective long-duration energy storage resource that is – unlike compressed air energy or pumped hydro – geographically independent.

      Further Tax Cuts on Li-ion Would be 'Essential Boost' for India's Energy Storage Industry

      India’s Goods and Services Tax (GST), a single tax applicable across the whole of the country, will be lowered for lithium-ion batteries by 10% in a move which has been welcomed by the India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA). All goods and services are taxable under the law, which was introduced in 2017. Along with a wide range of other changes, the GST rates on lithium-ion batteries has dropped from 28% to just 18%. In related news, fuel cell vehicles will see their GST reduced from 28% to 12%.

    7. Utility Rates Driving Record Demand for Home Energy Storage Systems

      Utility Rates Driving Record Demand for Home Energy Storage Systems

      Installations of home energy storage system in the U.S. hit a record high in the first quarter of 2018, according to a new industry report. The new capacity of 36 megawatt-hours will sustain an estimated 4,000 home systems and adds to the 1,080 megawatt-hours installed in the past 4 years. The big picture: Home energy storage systems commonly use batteries to store the electricity generated by rooftop solar panels, which can then be used during peak times and on demand to reduce utility costs or for backup power during inclement weather. The increasing penetration of residential and commercial solar installations has lowered energy demands on utilities. But the policies they have implemented to offset those losses have ended up making home energy systems even more attractive.

      Sunnova Returns to the Arizona Solar Market, This Time With Batteries

      Residential solar provider Sunnova is returning to Arizona after a period of regulatory tumult, and this time, it's bringing batteries. The privately held company fast-tracked its SunSafe solar-plus-storage offering in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which left thousands of Sunnova customers in Puerto Rico without power even if their solar panels survived undamaged. Since then, the company has expanded its hybrid product to California, Massachusetts and now Arizona. That puts Sunnova into competition with Sunrun’s growing BrightBox product, and whatever is left of the company that used to be SolarCity.

      States Should Play Role in Determining Future of Energy Storage Market, Panel Says

      SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Panelists at a session held here Monday at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) conference agreed that states should have active roles in determining the future of their energy storage markets but had differing opinions on the impacts of a recent Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) order. In February, FERC issued Order 841, which aimed to remove barriers to energy storage resource participation in the capacity, energy and ancillary services markets. The order directs Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) and Independent System Operators (ISOs) to revise their market rules so that they recognize the physical and operational characteristics of energy storage resources. However, industry groups including NARUC, the Edison Electric Institute, the American Public Power Association and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association have requested a rehearing of the FERC decision on the grounds that it exceeds the agency’s jurisdiction.

      Renewable Energy is Catching up to Natural Gas Much Faster Than Anyone Thought

      For around 10 years, the conventional wisdom in the energy sector has been that natural gas is ascendant. Coal is dirty, and it’s getting expensive, but it’s too early to jump all the way to renewable energy. To get from the fossil fuel present to the renewable future, we will need ... a bridge. Natural gas is meant to be that bridge, a way to reduce our emissions relative to coal while we work on scaling up renewables. (The shift from coal to gas is a big part of why US emissions have declined over the past few years.)
