    1. The Future of Energy Storage Is Here: An Inside Look at Rocky Mountain Power's 600-Battery DR Project

      The Future of Energy Storage Is Here: An Inside Look at Rocky Mountain Power's 600-Battery DR Project

      The first residents of an all-electric and energy efficient community — the largest battery demand response project in the United States — are settling into new apartments. Their cars are tucked neatly beneath solar panel covers and their electric cars can plug into charging ports. Inside each apartment in the Soleil Lofts development, a battery is humming. When complete, the planned community's 22 buildings will have 600 apartment units with 12.6 MWh of battery storage, 5.2 MW of solar panels, 150 stalls of EV chargers and an overriding focus on energy efficiency. Utility access to the 600 batteries will turn the complex into a grid resource.

    2. Bipartisan Senate Bill Allocates $100M to Ease Residential Solar, Storage Permitting

      Bipartisan Senate Bill Allocates $100M to Ease Residential Solar, Storage Permitting

      Sens. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, introduced a bill on Monday to create a federal program to ease the permitting of distributed energy systems, including solar, battery storage and electric vehicle fast chargers. S. 2447 would appropriate $20 million annually, from fiscal year 2019 to 2024, for a new nonprofit organization under the Department of Energy, dubbed the Distributed Energy Opportunity Board, to streamline local permitting and inspection for qualifying systems.

    3. Duke, Eversource Commit to Create Energy Storage Safety Standards

      Duke, Eversource Commit to Create Energy Storage Safety Standards

      Duke Energy, Eversource and 25 other energy companies signed an energy storage corporate responsibility pledge and committed to participate in a taskforce to optimize safety standards, according to an announcement by the Energy Storage Association on Thursday. The pledge prioritizes safety for energy storage resource deployment, integration, and operation. Utilities and third-party storage developers pledged to contribute storage experts to a taskforce focused on responsible supply chain practices, potential operational hazards, end-of-life, and recycling in the industry. The ESA formally launched its corporate responsibility initiative for the industry at its annual conference in Phoenix, Arizona last week.

      Designing Liberty Utilities' New Hampshire Residential Storage Program

      The increasing deployment of distributed energy storage has led utilities to focus on lowering peak demand across the United States. Throughout the Northeast, utilities are considering 'bring your own device' programs as battery storage, clean energy and utility advocates fight for ownership and swift technology deployment. Instead of leaving battery storage deployment up to the private sector, Liberty Utilities is developing the second regulator-approved storage program for utility-owned behind-the-meter in its New Hampshire territory.

      Salt River Project, DOE Team up to Assess Value of Distributed Energy Storage

      The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is teaming up with Arizona's Salt River Project (SRP) to launch "one of the largest" home battery storage studies to date, NREL announced on Thursday. The study would offer insight into distributed storage, while also encouraging installations. 295 SRP customers have already submitted an application to install a battery and join the study, according to an SRP spokesperson, and about half of those systems have been installed and commissioned.

    6. CAISO Could Lose 28 Gas Plants and Keep the Lights on: UCS

      CAISO Could Lose 28 Gas Plants and Keep the Lights on: UCS

      California could retire 28 natural gas plants without impacting electricity reliability, the Union of Concern Scientists said in a report published Tuesday. In order to meet the California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) target to reduce carbon to 42 million metric tons (MMT) by 2030 in the most economic way possible, the UCS model chose not to build any new gas plants to replace less efficient combined-cycle gas turbines.
