      Duke Energy Florida Launches Park and Plug EV Charging Station Pilot to Encourage Clean Transportation

      ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Oct. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Energy is installing up to 530 electric vehicle, or EV, charging stations within its Florida service area that will provide the necessary infrastructure network to promote and support the benefits of clean electric transportation. The company is working with various communities and groups to install the units for public use in multi-unit dwellings, workplaces and locations with broad public access, such as sites with high traffic or in major corridors. Host sites are being selected through an application process. Additionally, 10 percent of the charging stations will be installed in income-qualified communities to make the benefits of cleaner electric transportation available to all customers.

    2. Duke Energy Proposes Solar and Battery Storage Project to Power Facility in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

      Duke Energy Proposes Solar and Battery Storage Project to Power Facility in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

      CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 14, 2016-- Duke Energy has proposed installing a microgrid, powered by renewable energy, to serve a remote communications tower in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Located atop Mt. Sterling in Haywood County, the proposed project would combine a 10-kilowatt solar installation with a Fluidic 95-kilowatt-hour zinc-air battery at the site and ultimately provide all the energy needs for the tower. The tower is currently served by a single overhead electric line. Because the tower provides emergency communications for the park, the ability to operate independently from the energy grid is important to park communications.

    3. Duke Energy to Put New Battery and Ultracapacitor System to the Test in N.C.

      Duke Energy to Put New Battery and Ultracapacitor System to the Test in N.C.

      CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 10, 2016 -- Duke Energy has started testing a first-of-its-kind battery technology at its Rankin Substation in Gaston County, N.C. The hybrid ultracapacitor-battery energy storage system (HESS) will demonstrate multiple service applications: extended operational life, rapid response, real-time solar smoothing and load shifting. "This approach will allow our energy storage systems to do a variety of tasks," said Thomas Golden, technology development manager for Duke Energy. "With so many solar installations in North Carolina, we must look for innovative ways to better incorporate renewable energy into our system – and still provide reliable service at a competitive price for our customers." One of the distribution lines at the substation has a 1.2-megawatt solar installation connected a mile away. With North Carolina fourth in the nation for installed solar power, managing and maintaining these grid-connected renewable installations is critical now and in the future, added Golden.

      Indiana to Take Leadership Role in Energy Storage Technology

      Storing energy from the sun and wind and using it efficiently on the electric grid will be the focus of new research at Southern Indiana's Battery Innovation Center (BIC) near the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center. Duke Energy and the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC) are partnering with the Battery Innovation Center to advance energy storage research, particularly as it applies to homes and communities. The initiative is part of a 2012 regulatory settlement between the OUCC and Duke Energy.
