    2. Opinion: FERC plan is unfair advantage for distant renewables

      Opinion: FERC plan is unfair advantage for distant renewables
      The Coalition for Fair Transmission Policy said: "The market should determine what generation and transmission should be built. Instead, under its proposed rules, FERC would pick winners and losers, favoring remote renewable projects that require a transmission build out costing hundreds of billions of dollars over cheaper and possibly greener energy projects built closer to home".

    3. Solar (w/ Storage) Will Move Appalachia From Coal

      Solar (w/ Storage) Will Move Appalachia From Coal
      Figure 7 shows the decrease in the consumer price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for solar energy over time. This cost includes the cost to install solar, install energy storage (beginning in 2020), maintain the solar array, and building the transmission infrastructure. While this decrease may not look like much at first glance, it’s much more desirable than the dramatic cost increases in Figure 8 if we were to stick with coal.

      UK Dept Risking "NEGawatt" Market by Lack of Payment Clarity
      The Department of Energy and Climate Change confirmed last week that it will develop a policy that will set out the role of electricity demand management initiatives, energy storage systems, new interconnection links to the continent, and the roll out smart grid technologies. The DECC has been warned it risks harming investor confidence in the UK's emerging "negawatt market", after failing to reveal how it will administer payments for back-up plants and demand management schemes.

    6. Report by Pike: “Energy Storage on the Grid”

      Report by Pike: “Energy Storage on the Grid”
      Pike Research anticipates that among the various application segments in this market, the integration of renewable energy – primarily wind power – will represent approximately 50% of the total capacity deployed for long duration energy storage. The firm forecasts that load leveling/peak shifting will represent 31% of the total market, followed by arbitrage (12%) and T&D upgrade deferral (7%).

    7. Opinion: The Missing Strategy for Storage

      Opinion: The Missing Strategy for Storage
      The reason that electricity is not stored in large quantities on the U.S. electricity grid today (other than 21.5 gigawatts of pumped storage hydropower) is because it is still generally less expensive to generate an electron than to store it. What is the case for government investment (either directly or through tax credits) in grid-connected energy storage technology? Why can’t the government leave development of grid-connected energy storage to the private sector alone?

    10. Grid-Scale Thermal Energy Storage Prospects

      Grid-Scale Thermal Energy Storage Prospects
      Future thermal energy storage will cover the temperature range from sub-freezing to 1000°C. Heat-of-fusion technologies offer greatly extended useful service lives and cost-competitive long-term costs. Most thermal energy storage systems will be built on a large scale that involve massive volume. Most future research may involve high-temperature systems that generate steam and energize air turbine engines.

      Renewables Boom Could Strain Germany's Grid
      Dena energy agency director, Stephan Kohler, said: "My demands for the new renewable energy laws would be that additional capacity is to be built only where there is an existing network infrastructure … Another prerequisite would be that it must be possible to absorb the new capacity through demand side management or integrate it in storage systems at a European level".

    13. Google Study: "Clean Energy Innovation" - Storage

      Google Study: "Clean Energy Innovation" - Storage
      Storage helps integrate intermittent renewables like wind and solar, shape demand, and prevent service interruptions. Two basic types of breakthroughs in grid-storage were modeled: short duration storage capable of discharging loads for less than 1 hour; and larger scale storage capable of discharging for over 1 hour. We then modeled five business cases for storage: 1) Frequency Regulation; 2) Load Following; 3) Price Arbitraging; 4) Capacity Deferment; and 5) Grid Reliability. State and federal policies remained the same as BAU.

    14. S&C Electric to Furnish a Turnkey NaS Storage System

      S&C Electric to Furnish a Turnkey NaS Storage System
      Southern California Edison (SCE) awarded S&C Electric a contract to furnish a turnkey 1-MW S&C Smart Grid SMS™ Storage Management System on Catalina Island, California. With no tie to the mainland, Catalina's diesel generators are not best equipped to handle power demand, which fluctuates throughout the day. By deploying stored energy during times of peak power demand, the Smart Grid SMS with NaS batteries permits Catalina Island generators to run at a specific percentage of capacity for optimal performance and decreased carbon emissions.
