    1. Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader

      Australia Emerging as Smart Grid with Storage Leader
      In the Smart City initiative, storage will come in the form of lithium-ion batteries. There are four small-scale trials overall, including ammonia to hydrogen/nitrogen, graphite, zinc bromine and ultrabatteries. Some of the most dynamic homegrown startups (Wizard Power, ZBB Energy, RedFlow, Ecoult) are also located at the intersection of renewables and storage.

      GM OnStar Pilots Gathering EV Charging Data for Utilities Demand Planning

      Hundreds of regional utility employees will drive leased Chevrolet Volts as their everyday vehicle. Through the OnStar Advanced Telematics Operations Management System (ATOMS), a utility will gain insight into where and when EVs are charged and demand response, which allows the utility to reduce peak demand by shifting EV charging to non-peak hours.

      UK Dept Risking "NEGawatt" Market by Lack of Payment Clarity
      The Department of Energy and Climate Change confirmed last week that it will develop a policy that will set out the role of electricity demand management initiatives, energy storage systems, new interconnection links to the continent, and the roll out smart grid technologies. The DECC has been warned it risks harming investor confidence in the UK's emerging "negawatt market", after failing to reveal how it will administer payments for back-up plants and demand management schemes.

      DoD Examines 200K Plug-In Electric Vehicles With Grid Storage
      The DOD is at the genesis of large-scale integration of plug-in electric vehicles into its non-tactical ground fleet. Medium duty trucks, which are currently the largest fuel consumer in the DOD non-tactical fleet, are a top target for this integration. On June 16 the DOD released a request for information to engage stakeholders in a to achieve "total cost of ownership parity" -- in other words, a budget-neutral program.

    10. Microgrids promote energy independence

      Microgrids promote energy independence
      The Sacramento Municipal Utility District demo a "microgrid" that many other utilities have resisted. Microgrids promote energy independence, even allowing customers to secede from the larger utility grid powered up by their own resources. In an energy sector dominated by monopolies and centralized planning, microgrids could be a game-changer.
