      Green Battery Advocates Accentuate the Positive

      On May 10, the UK reached a fresh high for the amount of electricity generated by solar. Early on that Wednesday afternoon, solar output hit 8.5 gigawatts, according to Electric Insights, a website that tracks Britain’s power. At its peak, the green energy source was supplying more than 22 per cent of the 38GW being handled by the national grid, as solar for some hours exceeded the steady output from the UK’s fleet of nuclear power stations.

    9. Energy Storage Enables Transformation

      Energy Storage Enables Transformation

      Energy storage is a transformational technology. It converts electricity from a perishable good into a flexible resource. It changes the grid from a unidirectional power system to a dynamic network, and it is transforming how we produce, procure, and deliver energy. Storage does this by creating give in a system that has little inherent flexibility. In a white paper prepared for the Energy Storage Association (ESA) on a vision for energy storage in the United States, Navigant Research modeled the value of 35 GW of energy storage by 2025 against the cost of storage in the same period. We measured this value in terms of job creation, emissions reduction, grid operational cost savings, and reliability.

      Soccer meets storage? Nissan, Eaton team up with Manchester City

      Home energy storage soon no longer will be the preserve of energy geeks and green consumers if a new sponsorship deal signed by power company Eaton and football club Manchester (Man) City has the desired effect. Announced this week, the sponsorship deal will see Eaton market its home energy storage unit — developed using second-life batteries from Nissan electric vehicles — to fans of the football club. Fans will receive targeted content about energy storage across Man City channels over the coming weeks, including via the club's website, app and at "certain moments" during games. Die-hard fans also will be able to purchase a limited-edition Man City-branded storage unit for their homes.

    20. FERC Steps Up Efforts to Support Integration of Energy Storage Technologies Into Wholesale Power Markets

      FERC Steps Up Efforts to Support Integration of Energy Storage Technologies Into Wholesale Power Markets

      As momentum builds for wide-scale development and deployment of electric energy storage technologies, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has been taking a fresh look at how it can facilitate the integration of energy storage resources into wholesale electric markets. Advancements in energy storage technology and the ability of these resources to improve grid reliability and efficiency have been the primary drivers of FERC’s initiatives. Until recently, the only technology widely used for energy storage was pumped storage hydro, which can only be economically developed where there is viable geography, topology and a significant discrepancy between on-peak and off-peak power costs. In 2014, pumped hydroelectric resources represented approximately 98 percent of the over 22 gigawatts of installed electric storage capacity in the U.S.
