      PG&E Proposes Four New Cost-effective Energy Storage Projects to CPUC

      Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today requested approval of four cost-effective energy storage projects totaling approximately 567 megawatts (MW), in a filing at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). In January, the CPUC authorized PG&E to launch an accelerated solicitation for energy storage projects capable of meeting reliability needs for three specified local sub-areas in the northern central valley (Pease local sub-area and Bogue local sub-area) and spanning Silicon Valley to the central coast (South Bay - Moss Landing local sub-area). PG&E issued its request for offers on February 28 and received offers from numerous participants. After careful evaluation, PG&E selected one offer for a utility-owned project and three offers for third-party owned projects, all to be located within the South Bay - Moss Landing local sub-area.

      APS Seeks Partners to Bring Customers More Clean Energy Using Batteries

      PHOENIX- Arizona Public Service (APS) will issue an RFP tomorrow, June 29, to equip existing APS solar plants with battery storage. This RFP is an important part of APS’s plan to add up to 500 megawatts (MW) of energy storage to its system over the next 15 years. These batteries will bring more clean energy to APS customers when they need it most, by storing an abundance of mid-day solar and re-distributing it at peak times of customer usage later in the day.

    9. World's First Green Energy Storage Demonstrator

      World's First Green Energy Storage Demonstrator

      The world's first green energy storage demonstrator is now live in the UK and has brought carbon-free fuel, that can be stored or transported for later use, a step closer. The demonstrator project offers a way to decouple the supply of electricity (governed by fluctuating renewables) from the demand (driven by consumer dynamics) and is using renewable electricity to obtain hydrogen from water via electrolysis, nitrogen via air separation, and to power the Haber-Bosch process to make ammonia. Ammonia produced in this way can be a completely carbon-free and practical bulk energy source. Read more at: https://phys.org/news/2018-06-world-green-energy-storage.html#jCp
