      US Energy Storage Market Tops the GWh Milestone in 2017

      The U.S. energy storage market is no longer in its infancy. According to GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association’s (ESA) newly released U.S. Energy Storage Monitor 2017 Year-in-Review, 100 megawatt-hours of grid-connected energy storage were deployed in the fourth quarter of the year, marking 1,080 cumulative megawatt-hours deployed between 2013 and 2017. Even more impressive, GTM Research expects that the U.S. market will almost double this total in 2018 alone, with more than 1,000 megawatt-hours of energy storage forecast to be deployed this year.

      FERC Order 841 - Let Customized Energy Solutions Answer your Energy Storage Questions - GlobeNewswire (press release)

      PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 28, 2018 - Earlier this month, FERC issued a landmark ruling for energy storage in its Order 841. This Order removes barriers to participate in capacity, energy, and ancillary services markets administered by Regional Transmission Organizations (RTO) and Independent System Operators (ISO) by recognizing the “physical and operational characteristics” of the resource.  “Our team at CES has been immersed in the ISO/RTO stakeholder processes, and we are excited about the potential impacts of Order 841. Creating rules for fair treatment of energy storage in the wholesale markets is now a higher priority, and I’m glad that energy storage will ultimately have equal access to the market revenue streams,” said Jacqueline DeRosa, Vice President Emerging Technologies.

      Valuing Resilience Can Change the Breakeven Point for Solar-Plus-Storage

      Power outages caused by extreme weather events serve as all-too-frequent reminders of the vulnerability of buildings to grid disruptions. But what if building owners accounted for the value of avoided grid outages when deciding whether to invest in projects that could supply uninterruptible power after natural disasters? A new study by researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in collaboration with Clean Energy Group, a Vermont-based nonprofit, finds that “accounting for the cost of electric grid power outages can change the breakeven point for PV and storage system investment.”

      The Outlook for Energy Storage in New York is bright - Here’s Why

      2018 promises to be an exciting year for energy storage in New York State. The year began with a major announcement by Governor Andrew Cuomo who, in his annual State of the State address, announced a new energy storage initiative and set an unprecedented 1.5GW target for energy storage deployment in the state by 2025. Governor Cuomo also announced the investment of more than US$260 million in funding to accelerate the growth of the industry. The initiative is intended to spur the widespread deployment of energy storage systems in the state and grow 30,000 jobs in the state’s energy storage industry.

      Arizona is poised to join states that have adopted or are considering adopting energy storage goals for solar and wind in a possible move that’s expected to benefit large-battery makers such as Fluence. The Arizona Corporation Commission is expected to vote in late February on whether to move forward with a proposed energy modernization plan calling for 3 gigawatts of energy storage by 2030, which, if adopted, could become the largest energy-storage mandate in the country. The plan also calls for 80 percent of the state’s electricity to be generated using renewables by 2050.

      Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of ESA told Power Engineering International, that commentators should note the continuing decline in the price of the technology, and also the need to invest more in research and development to bolster its capabilities. Professor Chu, who served during the Obama administration, was reported in the Australian as saying that the huge lithium-ion battery built in South Australia by Tesla boss Elon Musk had cost about 40 times as much as an equivalent power plant using an existing hydro-electric dam. He said while the costs of building battery plants were likely to halve over the next decade, the approach would never be cheap enough to accommodate the big seasonal shifts in renewable power production.

      California Pushes The Envelope on Energy Storage with Pumped Hydro

      If the blowup over President Trump’s new solar tariff proves anything, it proves that the renewable energy transition is inevitable. A new hydroelectricity project for the City of San Diego, California is a case in point. The city recently raised the level of an existing hydropower dam to hold more water, and now it is considering a massive new energy storage element that would help the grid support more wind and solar power. The project provides support for the view that the new solar tariff is little more than a “speed bump” on the road to more sustainable future. Trump’s tariff is all but certain to disrupt the lives of individual solar workers, business owners and investors to some degree, but the overall impact is beginning to look like more smoke than fire.

      Progress on Energy Storage can Expedite the Shift to Clean Energy

      People have known for decades that energy resources such as wind and solar are cleaner and healthier than energy produced by dirty fuels. But, utilities and consumers occasionally express concern about the variability and dependability of those renewable sources. Those concerns are fading with the emergence of game-changing energy storage technologies. According to a new white paper released today by Environment New York, the rapid growth of less expensive wind and solar energy and the plummeting costs of energy storage have led to a six-fold increase in energy storage capacity (excluding pumped hydropower) over the past decade.
