      11 Energy Storage Project Developers To Watch

      Competition in the young energy storage market is heating up nicely. SunEdison’s announcement today of its purchase of an energy storage startup is the latest example of that. This is a good time to look at who are the other developers in this market, which is driven by a federal rule and a state mandate. It will need more than that, including lower cost technology and project development and construction costs, to grow long-term.

      This is An Energy Storage Startup You Need to Know About

      Inside a sunlit, cramped office near San Francisco’s financial district, entrepreneur and former political operative Susan Kennedy has been leading a team that is at the forefront of the emerging market for energy storage. The company, Advanced Microgrid Solutions, was in stealth mode until it became one of a handful of companies that recently won contracts — and a whopping 50 MW order — to build and manage large installations of batteries in buildings for utility Southern California Edison.

      Why Big Energy Companies Want To Invest In Energy Storage Startups

      Stem, a California energy storage service startup, has lined up Constellation Technology Ventures and Total Energy Ventures as investors and added $12 million to its previously announced $15 million Series B, the company said Wednesday. The addition of these two investors reflect the growing interest by big energy companies in the emerging energy storage market, where large battery systems are installed at homes or businesses to provide backup power or reduce the amount of electricity taken from the grid when electric rates are high.

    4. 4 Things You Should Know About Energy Storage

      4 Things You Should Know About Energy Storage

      We don’t fawn over battery technology like we do over shiny gadgets and smart apps, but know this: it’s set to play an important role in our attempt to use more low-carbon energy like solar and wind. Batteries and other energy storage equipment make it possible to store solar and wind electricity and use it whenever it’s needed, not just when it’s produced. That ability will help utilities to manage their power supply and demand. More interestingly, it will help businesses and homeowners to do the same as a growing number of them install solar panels on their roofs.
