      NextEra Is on a Roll

      The largest wind and solar developer continues to grow, with projects paired with storage as it reaches 5.3 GW of contracted solar projects. And it’s making good money at the same time. In its third-quarter results, NextEra’s presence in the solar market is bigger than ever. Development subsidiary NextEra Energy Resources added 747 MW of solar contracts and 341 MW of battery storage to its backlog, almost all of which is in the post-2020 time frame.

    2. UK Firm Announces Plans for First 'Liquid to Gas' Cryogenic Battery

      UK Firm Announces Plans for First 'Liquid to Gas' Cryogenic Battery

      British battery pioneers plan to build Europe’s largest energy storage project using a cryogenic battery that can store renewable energy for weeks rather than hours. The device will be built on the site of an old fossil fuel plant in the north of England to power up to 50,000 homes for up to five hours. Unlike traditional lithium-ion batteries, which typically store electricity for a few hours, the “cryobattery” will be able to store energy for months.

    4. Let's Kill 'Utility-' or 'Grid-Scale' Storage

      Let's Kill 'Utility-' or 'Grid-Scale' Storage

      Ask people how they segment the energy storage industry, and you'll often hear them divide it between customer-sited or behind-the-meter storage and "utility-"or "grid-scale storage." But if you then ask them what they mean by "utility-scale," you can't get a clear answer. Is it 5 MW, 10 MW, more than 20 MW? Do they mean "front-of-meter"? Or connected to the bulk transmission system? No, we're not calling for the end of the large-scale storage industry. We're saying that distributed, smaller-scale storage can provide all the same value to the grid that large-scale storage can and should be explicitly encouraged to compete on playing fields that policymakers have leveled everywhere.

    10. 'Germany's Largest' EV Battery-Powered Stationary Storage System Will Give Grid Flexibility

      'Germany's Largest' EV Battery-Powered Stationary Storage System Will Give Grid Flexibility

      A battery storage project using second-life electric vehicle (EV) batteries is set to be built in Germany, with an aim of developing an installed capacity of 20MW. The project is being billed as the largest stationary electricity storage system using EV batteries in Germany, following on from an initial 45MW project in France. The stationary storage system is to be built using EV batteries compiled in containers, using both second-life batteries and new batteries stored for future use in standard replacement during after-sales operations.

      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.

      Battery System to Provide Frequency Regulation for PJM

      A 72 MW/72 MWH battery system owned by a global independent power producer is expected to soon start providing grid services in PJM territory, signaling the storage industry’s increasing maturation and ability to compete with traditional resources. Industry supporters have argued that getting more storage online to support renewables integration and provide other grid benefits would require compensation schemes that allow storage to compete.

      Solar-plus-storage to provide all the daytime electric needs of nation state – pv magazine International

      The Republic of Nauru, like many Pacific Ocean island states relies almost entirely on diesel generators for its power. However, the government has decided raise the share of renewables in the power mix of the 21km² nation from 3% to 47% with a large-scale solar-plus-storage project. The power plant will have a solar capacity of 6 MW and 5 MW/2.5 MWh of storage. The system will be fully automated and integrated with the existing diesel system to optimize solar energy use, enable optimal battery energy storage system charging and discharging and allow optimal shut-off of the diesel engines.

      Ameresco Completes Energy Storage Project for Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator

      Ameresco, Inc. has announced the completion of a comprehensive energy storage project on behalf of Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The project began in 2015 when Ameresco secured two Energy Storage Facility Agreements from the IESO to design, build, own and operate 2 MW, four-hour “Battery Solid” energy storage systems. These recently completed systems provide 16 MWh in overall energy storage capacity. Both systems absorb power during periods of excess energy supply and deliver it back to the grid when energy demand is high.

    18. GE’s Largest Battery Deal Yet Will Support a 200MW Australian Solar Plant

      GE’s Largest Battery Deal Yet Will Support a 200MW Australian Solar Plant

      GE won its biggest grid battery deal so far, to supply a solar plant in South Australia. The 200-megawatt Solar River plant will be coupled with a 100-megawatt/300-megawatt-hour GE Reservoir grid storage system. Solar River could start generating power as early as 2021. This battery will outrank South Australia's Hornsdale Power Reserve, the Tesla-supplied system that currently holds the title for world's largest. Like that battery, it will provide fast-reacting capacity for a state grid dealing with rapid renewables growth and baseload coal retirement. But the GE system will use its longer energy duration to turn solar power into a dispatchable resource.

      Enabling Versatility: Allowing Hybrid Resources to Deliver Their Full Value to Customers

      Hybrid resources are growing dramatically. Energy storage-paired generators offer enhanced capabilities and can respond to economic signals differently than traditional generator resources. Yet, many grid planning rules overstate the cost of interconnecting hybrid resources, and operating rules unduly limit the flexibility and other services that these resources can provide. Industry practices, market rules, and regulations need to be updated to remove barriers to entry and allow these resources to offer their full value to the power system, which will enhance market competition and ensure just and reasonable rates.
