    2. Overview: Smart Grid growth to spur demand for energy storage

      Overview: Smart Grid growth to spur demand for energy storage

      Many utilities have made upgrades to their system to create a Smart Grid. One area of development that has been largely overlooked is energy storage. Energy storage is essential to allowing a utility to realize the potential of the smart grid. Implementing energy storage can provide the utility a number of benefits including increased operating efficiency, increasing distributed generation, and improving customer satisfaction.

      Fraunhofer to show residential energy management system - PV, storage, meter, software

      Balancing energy production and consumption is made easy with the mySmartGrid platform. It integrates a complete set of devices and web technologies: Based on independent metering and the intelligent yield forecast PVCAST, user-friendly visualizations are generated, as well as schedules for switching devices through flexible home automation components. Combined with de-centralized energy storage in myPowerGrid, the expansion of renewable energies is going to take place in private households.

      350Green to open Chicago battery plant; targets grid ancillary services

      350Green will open a battery plant in Chicago in August that is targeting grid energy storage applications.  Supporting EV charging is “just the tip of the iceberg” for creating services for the grid, according to 350Green. In addition to supporting fast DC charging, 350 Green is looking to use the battery systems to sell power back to the grid through ancillary services, and the company will sell battery packs to other grid services companies.

    5. Research: Significant Expansion Opportunity for Smart-Grid (includes storage)

      Research: Significant Expansion Opportunity for Smart-Grid (includes storage)

      In accommodating renewables, only bulk storage technologies will generate significant revenue (an estimated $105M) for 2012 ... If transmission, distribution, and residential storage is aggregated, total revenue will be $877M in 2018. Considering that both distribution and residential storage for renewables integration registered no revenue at the start of the forecast period, this is considerable progress.

      Importance of IEEE P2030 standards for storage integration and testing

      IEEE P2030.2 is envisioned as a sweeping technical knowledge base for discrete and hybrid energy storage systems—defining terminology, functional performance, interoperability of various system topologies, evaluation criteria, operations, testing and engineering principles, etc. IEEE P2030.3, then, is intended to focus on the test and conformance verification concerns associated with integrating such storage systems with the electricity grid.

      Echelon's 'Trojan Horse' strategy to penetrate smart grid markets in China, Brazil, etc.

      These countries' incumbent meter manufacturers want to own future smart meter markets, and governments often impose local manufacturing mandates.  Echelon's idea is to give regional meter manufacturers a tool to hook their smart meters to devices like solar panel and battery inverters, grid sensors, plug-in vehicle chargers and other grid devices, all over Echelon’s grid networking and software infrastructure.

    9. Interview with S&C: Power storage in Britain needs government nudge

      Interview with S&C: Power storage in Britain needs government nudge

      Electricity storage is years from being widely deployed in Britain because of market and regulatory barriers, said an executive of S&C Electric.  With effective storage linked to smart grids, power suppliers can better manage electricity generated from wind and solar to make it available on windless or cloudy days, and electric car users can charge up during off-peak times.

    12. Opinion: Germany should focus on decentralised flexible energy supply and demand systems

      Opinion: Germany should focus on decentralised flexible energy supply and demand systems

      Rather than having ‘always-on’ baseload (e.g. nuclear) plants, and then following any extra load with peaking plants (usually gas), in the new system, variable loads and variable supply (from renewables) are balanced via a smart grid with demand-side measures, load peak shaving/delay, energy storage, and backup sources. That’s just what Germany plans to move to.
