      French Utility Company EDF Plans Energy Storage Push

      French utility company EDF has a goal of 100% carbon-free power by 2050. Energy storage will be a big part of achieving that goal. The company already has 5 gigawatts of installed grid-scale storage, but plans to increase that to 15 gigawatts by 2035. Adding the extra 10 gigawatts of storage called for by its new Energy Storage Plan will cost about $10 billion.

      HAYWARD, Calif., April 01, 2018 - Primus Power (“Primus”), the leading long duration stationary energy storage company, announced today that Etechwin is operating an EnergyPod 2 at their Beijing campus. Etechwin is the microgrid subsidiary of Goldwind, a world-leading wind turbine manufacturer. The curtailment on wind energy is a significant economic problem, especially in western China. As stated by Bloomberg, "drawing upon data from China's National Energy Administration, Bloomberg New Energy Finance recently estimated that owners of China’s wind and solar assets forewent approximately $4.7 billion in potential revenue due to curtailment in 2017.” In June 2017, the Qinghai province recognized the critical role that energy storage can play to reduce curtailment and proposed new legislation that would mandate the use of energy storage systems with new wind turbine installations.

      800 Megawatt Bay State Wind US Offshore Project Partners To Combine Energy Storage

      Earlier this month, the 800 megawatt Bay State Wind offshore project being developed jointly by Ørsted and Eversource off the coast of Massachusetts announced a deal which will see it work with local NEC Energy Solutions to develop an energy storage solution for the offshore wind farm. Ørsted, one of the world’s leading offshore wind companies, and Eversource, New England’s premier transmission builder, announced on March 16 that their Bay State Wind partnership had signed a Letter of Intent to work collaboratively with Massachusetts-based NEC Energy Solutions so as to develop an energy storage solution for the 800 megawatt (MW) Bay State Wind. Specifically, they are looking to combine the offshore wind farm with a 55 MW/110 MW-hour (MWh) energy storage option, which upon completion would result in the world’s largest wind-paired energy storage system for commercial-scale energy.

      Empowering Utilities to Lead on Energy Efficiency with Rev

      As Governor Cuomo prepares to announce a comprehensive energy efficiency framework on Earth Day and continues to move forward with New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) strategy, it is important to remember the role that utilities can play in advancing energy efficiency. REV, announced four years ago, aims to help New York meet its nation-leading clean energy goals. While New York has a bold program already in place to ensure 50 percent our electricity demand is met with renewable energy like wind and solar by 2030, there is no comparable commitment yet to scale up energy efficiency. To ensure success, New York needs to empower utilities to invest in energy-saving technologies as part of the efficiency framework that the governor plans to announce on, Earth Day, April 22.

      General Electric Energy Storage Offering Built on Speed

      The energy storage business could be worth $103 billion by 2030, so dozens of companies are jockeying for position to capture market share. Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has made the biggest splash, but AES and Siemens creation Fluence, Stem, Total, and General Electric (NYSE: GE) are trying to stake out their piece of the pie as well. GE recently announced a new energy storage offering called Reservoir that's intended to reduce construction time, increase battery life, and improve reliability. It's also building the solution to fit with the way renewable energy projects are being built today, which could make it an attractive offering for developers.

      This Brand New Town Will Be 100% Powered by Solar Energy

      One of the most common attacks on solar energy -- and renewable energy more broadly -- has been that it doesn't produce a consistent flow of electricity 24/7, and is therefore unsuitable to power a large percentage of the electric grid. But a new town in Florida intends to prove that wrong: It's planning to get 100% of its electricity from solar energy and an accompanying energy storage system.

      Tesla and Fluence to Supply 55MW/80MWh of Battery Storage to Victoria, with One Solar Farm Retrofit

      Tesla and Fluence are to supply Victoria’s first two large-scale, grid-connected energy storage batteries, one of which will be connected to an existing solar farm. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) will match the AU$25 million by the Victorian Government to jointly fund the lithium-ion battery projects as part of the Victorian energy storage initiative. Both projects are aimed at helping to ease constraints on transmission lines in Western Victoria where energy generation from existing wind and solar farms is being curtailed. Half the funding will go towards a 25MW/50MWh battery co-located and integrated with the 60MW Gannawarra Solar Farm, near Kerang. The battery will be supplied by Tesla and then owned by Edify Energy and its partner Wirsol. It will show how existing PV projects can be successfully retrofitted with battery storage.

      New Business Models May be the Next Frontier in Lower Energy Storage Costs

      s the markets for energy storage continue to grow and companies in those markets mature, business models and financing mechanisms are getting more attention. Those models can involve alternatives to a traditional asset sale approach that can reduce the cost of entry for potential customers and lower the cost of capital for energy storage companies. The trend was highlighted last week when Younicos announced its energy storage rental service. Renting energy storage equipment was an obvious step for Younicos, given that its corporate parent, Aggreko, rents power generation equipment on a global scale.

      California’s recent droughts and ongoing need to economise water use have inspired more commercial energy storage at a local water board, with ENGIE Storage delivering a project for the San Diego Water Authority. The new battery energy storage project is expected to save the Authority (SDWA) US$100,000 per year on its energy costs. The batteries will be used to store low-cost solar energy for use during peak times and times of low solar generation. SDWA and ENGIE Storage, which was formerly known as Green Charge prior to its acquisition by the European utility, struck up a deal for the project in May 2017.

      Community Energy Storage: What is it? Where is it? How does it work?

      The sharing economy is growing feverishly worldwide. Whether ride-sharing, tool-sharing or home-sharing, there are new value streams and new benefits to participants never before envisioned. Energy markets are no exception and are experiencing similar community-oriented revolutions. Over a decade ago, the first community renewable energy (aka shared renewable energy) programs emerged, enabling multiple energy customers to participate in and share the economic benefits of a wind or solar energy system. Today, more than 14 states have enabled shared renewable energy programs, and hundreds of utilities offer some form of community or shared renewable energy program to their customers. More recently, “community choice aggregation” has sprung to life as a compelling alternative for communities looking to drive more renewable and clean energy development.
