    1. 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.

    2. Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy

      Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy
      The basic premise of alternative energy is that widespread deployments of wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles will slash hydrocarbon consumption, reduce CO2 emissions and give us a cleaner, greener and healthier planet. That premise, however, is fatally flawed because our planet cannot produce enough non-ferrous industrial metals to make a meaningful difference and the prices of those metals are even more volatile than the prices of the hydrocarbons that alternative energy hopes to supplant.

    4. Bright Energy's Underwater CAES 'Bag'

      Bright Energy's Underwater CAES 'Bag'
      Bright Energy's core technology is a long, flexible polymer/glass bag shaped like a giant sea cucumber. One end of the bag is attached to an air hose on the surface. A self-standing system with its own generator could produce power for under 6 cents a kilowatt hour, the CTO said. If you could latch onto a generator at an offshore wind farm, the costs could potentially drop to 2.5 cents.

    5. Little State Money for Utility Upgrades

      Little State Money for Utility Upgrades
      Tight budgets affect electric utilities that need to find their own financing to pay for upgrades. It's a complicated process that in many states requires approval of the public utility commission for any rate increases. One Senate proposal would use $10 billion in federal seed money to establish an independent bank that gives out loans and loan guarantees to major infrastructure projects.

    6. Tohoku Electric To Stack 40 NGK 2MW NaS Batteries

      Tohoku Electric To Stack 40 NGK 2MW NaS Batteries
      Tohoku Electric Power Co. will set up a sodium sulfur (NaS) storage system at its Noshiro fossil-fuel-burning power plant. The system is comprised of forty 2MW NaS batteries from NGK, and has a total output capacity of 80MW. It is expected to be running in January, and when fully charged, it will provide continuous power for roughly six hours. It is expected to be one of the biggest of its kind in Japan.

      BC Hydro, NGK, S&C Electric team on project
      The project involves two 1MW batteries. The battery near Golden will supplement the community’s power supply during peak periods. The battery in Field will store up to seven hours of reliable back up supply that could be used during an outage. The batteries will be supplied by NGK Insulators, and the system will be engineered and installed by S&C Electric Company.

      White House Releases "A Policy Framework For The 21st Century Grid"
      Energy storage systems have the potential to optimize the operating capabilities of the grid and the use of renewable energy by storing power for later use Such systems can work more effectively in tandem with smart grid technology, can augment demand response resources to reduce and shift peak energy loads, and can improve power quality and service reliability. Significantly, utility-sited energy storage can be used to avoid or delay investments in new distribution capacity and substation equipment. Today, only about 2 5% of U S electricity is provided through storage, although other countries, such as Japan, use storage for up to 15% of their energy needs.
