      Denmark to open tender for German PV installations

      Germany's Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is currently working on new regulations that would open up its solar PV tenders to neighboring European Union countries. The BMWi's Ordinance for Competitive Bidding for Financial Support of Freestanding Installations would meet the requirements of the European Commission, ensuring that from 2017, 5% of solar PV tenders a year will be reserved for installations located in other European countries.

    2. Australia Aims to Unlock Battery Storage Revolution

      Australia Aims to Unlock Battery Storage Revolution

      According to Clean Energy Council (CEC) Chief Executive Kane Thornton, battery storage has massive potential in Australia. It can help consumers better manage their own electricity use, alleviate the pressures on the electricity network, and maximize the advantage of the more than 1.5 million solar systems already installed on homes. A new policy paper released today by the Council lists a number of initiatives that would accelerate the uptake of the battery storage in the country. The most critical support measure, it says, is to design new network distribution tariffs in a way that allows customers to realize the full value of installing storage, and ensure that future structural changes to tariffs are not at the detriment of these consumer investments.

      Germany: 83 MW added in January

      While solar markets such as the U.S. and India surging ahead with, and the UK developers rush to complete projects before regulatory changes come into effect, the German market is exhibiting few signs of recovering to former installation levels. The latest Federal Network Agency figures reveal that almost 17 MW of PV plants and 65 MW of distributed systems were installed and registered with the agency in January. The first projects under Germany's new tender program are included in today's figures.

      Energy Storage is Now: New Video Interviews with Sonnen USA

      There are many reasons why batteries are the natural complement to the deployment of increasing volumes of solar PV. Chiefly, in leading solar markets the installation of more and more solar will ultimately mean that there will be a need to soak up excess daytime production as well as a need to meet electricity needs during periods of low solar production and overnight.

    5. Western Australia Rules Out Increase to Fixed Charges for Solar Households

      Western Australia Rules Out Increase to Fixed Charges for Solar Households

      Fixed charges, for grid connection, is a battleground in the residential solar sector Down Under. It appears one such battle has been won in the state of Western Australia. Answering a question in the Western Australian Parliament yesterday, state premier Colin Barnett "categorically ruled[d] out" and increase in fixed charges. The Australian Solar Council (ASC) said that the premier's decision to rule out fixed charge increases as, "a huge win for the solar industry and for solar families."

      U.S. DOE Commits US$33 Million to Projects to Integrate More Renewables on the Grid

      On Friday, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) announced US$33 million in funding to 12 projects under a program whose goal is to allow the integration of 50% or more renewable energy on the grid. The awards through the Network Optimized Distributed Energy Systems (NODES) program are for the development of control systems to coordinate electric load and generation on the grid, to create what DOE describes as an “virtual energy storage system”.

      Ireland's Energy Storage Potential

      Curtailment of renewable generation is driving the case for energy storage in Ireland. While short on sun, the electrical storage market in Ireland could thrive given its ample wind resources and grid limitations. "There is an urgent need for energy storage solutions in Ireland," said James Tedd of the Electricity Supply Board (ESB), Ireland’s state-owned power utility, at the Energy Storage Update Europe conference held in London last week.

      Germany: 150 Gw Pv Capacity Viable with Just 40 GW Storage

      Germany’s cumulative solar PV capacity could be quadrupled from 39.2 GW currently to more than 150 GW with ease – provided the nation’s electricity system had the appropriate level of integrated storage, finds a new study by Agora Energiewende. The study found that 40 GW of battery storage capacity would sufficiently support 150 GW of solar PV on the grid with few – if any – issues for Germany’s power infrastructure.
