      Fluence unveils intelligent, modular storage product with 800 MW/2,300 MWh of projects

      Storage company Fluence was selected for 800 MW, 2,300 MWh worth of projects for its newest energy storage technology "stack," equipped with a modular building block "cube" and machine learning, the company announced Tuesday.

      The demand for the technology is indicative of a rapidly growing storage market, where a large number of independent power producers and utilities are building and installing storage systems, Jason Burwen, vice president of policy at the Energy Storage Association (ESA), told Utility Dive

      "We never want to lose sight of the fact that businesses have the running room to do these kinds of innovations when they have a lot of customers and demand," he said, adding that it's important to reduce policy barriers to deploying these assets.

      Clean energy groups band behind target of majority renewables by 2030

      U.S. clean energy industry trade groups unveiled Tuesday a collective target of reaching at least 50% renewable generation in the next decade, a tripling of the country’s current capacity. The move — announced by the CEOs of the American Wind Energy Association, the Solar Energy Industries Association, the Energy Storage Association, and the National Hydropower Association — is a bid to align the sectors’ policy agenda. That way, the industries can speak with one voice when advocating for federal and state policies to support clean energy, the CEOs said during remarks at the virtual CleanPower 2020 conference.

      Researchers Propose New Diamond Nanostructure For Efficient Energy Storage

      One of the biggest challenges for renewable energy research is energy storage. The goal is to find a material with high energy storage capacity and energy storage material with high storage capacity that can also quickly and efficiently discharge a large amount of energy. In an attempt to overcome this hurdle, researchers at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) have proposed a brand-new carbon nanostructure designed to store energy in mechanical form.

      Landfills emerge as promising battery storage sites to back up renewable energy

      Solar panel installations have been one of the fastest-growing types of energy infrastructure in recent years and landfills have become fitting sites due to the sheer amount of land required. Now, for many of the same reasons, energy project developers are looking to landfills for a technology growing even faster than solar: battery storage. Storage on landfills is still a novel idea, with closed sites seen as largely the most suitable, and only a few examples of these projects exist.

      Plus Power Breaks Into Battery Big League With Grid-Tied Project for Hawaiian Electric

      Earlier this month Hawaiian Electric announced a slew of solar-plus-storage projects to continue its shift to fossil-free energy. Tucked inside that announcement was a big development: a massive grid-tied battery that will take over crucial duties from the last coal plant anywhere in Hawaii. The 185-megawatt/565-megawatt-hour Kapolei Energy Storage project marks a dramatic arrival to the big leagues for developer Plus Power. Plus power, an ESA member, had previously developed a 12-megawatt battery to ensure reliability at a car factory microgrid in Mexico.
