      NY Public Service Commission Approves Environmental Review of Energy Storage Roadmap

      The New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) approved its environmental review of New York’s Energy Storage Roadmap and expanded the types of renewable energy systems that are eligible for compensation. The state’s Energy Storage Roadmap outlines the policy, regulatory, and programmatic actions necessary to achieve the state’s goal of having 1,500 megawatts (MW) of energy storage by 2025 — the equivalent electricity demand of one-fifth of all New York homes.

    5. Scotland's First Utility-Scale Battery Brought Online to Deliver Sub-Second Balancing

      Scotland's First Utility-Scale Battery Brought Online to Deliver Sub-Second Balancing

      Scotland’s first utility-scale battery storage facility has been officially opened today, having begun delivering sub-second balancing services to National Grid at the end of June under a bespoke agreement secured before the hotly contested Enhanced Frequency Response (EFR) auction of 2016. The 20MW Broxburn Energy Storage facility was built by RES, which had sold the project to The Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG) in August last year for £20 million. It was the first project to have been acquired by TRIG and RES’ fourth in the UK, with the company now managing the site.

    6. Energy Storage Technology Helps Renew, Stabilize Electric Grid

      Energy Storage Technology Helps Renew, Stabilize Electric Grid

      The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that 17 percent of all electricity produced in the United States in 2017 came from renewable energy sources, including solar, wind and hydroelectric dams. That percentage is expected to keep growing as communities seek ways to improve local air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions linked by EPA scientists to climate change. Unfortunately, renewable energy sources need proper weather conditions to generate power. And those periods of sunshine, wind or heavy wave action occur only intermittently between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. when consumer demand for electricity peaks. That’s where energy storage technology comes in.

    8. Energy Storage to Play Key Role for California to Reach Target of 100% Zero-Emission Electricity by 2045

      Energy Storage to Play Key Role for California to Reach Target of 100% Zero-Emission Electricity by 2045

      SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 -- The California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) applauds the California State Legislature for passing landmark Senate Bill (SB) 100, making California the largest U.S. state to set such an aggressive zero-emission electricity target. Since 2010, California has procured 1,514 MW of new energy storage capacity to support the grid – by far the most of any state. SB 100 would mandate 100% zero-emission electricity by 2045, with 60% renewables to be achieved by 2030. The bill now awaits the signature of California Governor Jerry Brown, who could sign it into law this week at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. The bill will update SB 350, passed into law in 2015, that requires retail sellers and publicly owned utilities to procure 50% of their electricity from eligible renewable energy resources by 2030. California efforts to date have been so successful that state legislators believe more aggressive targets are achievable.

    9. Grid Storage batteries Help Electric Vehicles Go Truly Green

      Grid Storage batteries Help Electric Vehicles Go Truly Green

      In October 2015 a ruptured well in a natural gas storage facility in Aliso Canyon north of Los Angeles leaked 97,100 tonnes of methane into the atmosphere — making it one of the worst environmental disasters in the US since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill five years earlier. Thousands of people were displaced. The following year utility Southern California Edison decided to invest in batteries to reduce the region’s reliance on gas for electricity — a contract that was won by Tesla. It was a turning point for electric utilities, which have relied on natural gas plants to provide power for over half a century.

      US residential storage capacity sees 317% growth

      Utilities in the United States connected almost 217 MW / 524 MWh of energy storage capacity to the grid in 2017, and while those numbers were driven by utility-supply projects, the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) says the strongest growth is seen on the residential side. From 2016 to 2017, residential capacity additions grew by 202% in terms of MW, while non-residential additions grew by a modest 9% and utilities even saw the rate decline slightly, according to SEPA's 2018 Utility Energy Storage Market Snapshot, released last month. In terms of MWh, residential projects tallied an even more impressive growth rate: 317%, compared with 105% in the non-residential sector and 89% growth in utility storage.

      California Energy Storage Subsidy Extension Passes Assembly

      Today solar and energy storage advocates had their second win in less than 24 hours. Following on the dramatic and narrow passage of a bill to mandate 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045, another bill which may contain one of the keys to making that happen has passed the Assembly. SB 700 will extend the state’s Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) through 2026, which by the estimates of the California Solar and Storage Association (CALSSA) will support the installation of nearly 3 GW of behind-the-meter storage.
