      Military Wants Bases to be "island microgrids": Storage + Renewables
      Energy officers at military bases are working to turn their facilities into "island microgrids"--entities that can generate and store their own electricity, independent of the surrounding commercial grid. … in the event of a blackout, it could continue to function on electricity generated on-site--largely from renewable sources. These include utility-scale solar arrays, backed up with advance-battery solar-power storage units and diesel generators … Energy experts say that the military's approach could also offer a new model for towns and cities, protecting them from regional-grid blackouts--and boosting local renewable-energy production.

      Grid-scale flow battery developer, Primus Power, receives $11M
      DBL Investors and I2BF Global Ventures joined existing investors Chrysalix Energy Venture Capital and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The funds raised complement existing grants from the United States Department of Energy (DOE), the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E), and the California Energy Commission (CEC).

    3. Microgrids promote energy independence

      Microgrids promote energy independence
      The Sacramento Municipal Utility District demo a "microgrid" that many other utilities have resisted. Microgrids promote energy independence, even allowing customers to secede from the larger utility grid powered up by their own resources. In an energy sector dominated by monopolies and centralized planning, microgrids could be a game-changer.

    4. Batteries Instead of New Power Plant on Long Island?

      Batteries Instead of New Power Plant on Long Island?
      When the Long Island Power Authority said last summer that it was going to need new power capacity in the next few years, most people assumed that meant new generating stations or new transmission cables. But of the 16 companies that submitted proposals, one, AES Energy Storage, took an entirely different tack: it proposed batteries.

    5. Security Value of Grid Storage

      The energy security benefit of grid-connected storage largely arises from two attributes of certain storage applications. The first is the ability of energy storage, when deployed on the distribution portion of the grid, to permit the formation of local micro-grids, which can protect the grid from disruption cause by attacks and natural disasters. The second is the ability of distributed energy storage systems that use vehicle-compatible batteries to help bring down the cost of electric vehicles and reduce petroleum imports.

      IRENA Maps Out Path to Double the Global Share of Renewable Energy

      A new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency suggests the global renewable energy share can reach and perhaps even exceed 30 per cent by 2030 at no extra cost. The rest of the power system's resources have traditionally been adjusted around wind to support a reliable and efficient system. The research that led to this report challenges that concept.
