    2. Government Told to 'Take the Brakes off' Energy Storage Development in Britain

      Government Told to 'Take the Brakes off' Energy Storage Development in Britain

      The UK's government must “take the brakes off” the progress of energy storage by implementing the right policy framework without delay, according to Members of Parliament (MPs) from across the political spectrum. Speaking at Energy Storage and Connected Systems, an event hosted last week in London by the national Renewable Energy Association (REA), shadow minister for energy and climate change Alan Whitehead claimed current energy legislation was now “obsolete” in the face of the changes underway in the sector.

      Fluence, Battery Makers to Gain as Arizona Considers Storage Goal (Corrected)

      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.

      Arizona's 3GW Energy Storage Target, 'Clean Peak Plan' Part of a 'Wake Up Call' to Other States

      A 3,000MW energy storage target, proposed in Arizona as part of a grid modernisation policy, recognises the role of the technology in reducing the need for fossil fuels to stabilise the grid, a consultant has said. Yesterday, Andy Tobin of the state’s regulator, the Corporation Commission, presented a plan that includes a goal to generate 80% of Arizona’s power from renewable sources by 2050, a commitment to review the existing Renewable Energy Standard and Tariff (REST) policy, to use renewables to mitigate peaks establishing a ‘Clean Peak’ standard and to deploy 3,000MW of energy storage to “leverage low priced energy during the day”.

      Energy Storage Association Chief Responds to Former US Energy Secretary Comments

      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.

    9. California Pushes The Envelope on Energy Storage with Pumped Hydro

      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.

    10. Progress on Energy Storage can Expedite the Shift to Clean Energy

      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.

      If You Grow It, They Will Come: Power Solutions For Middle East Agriculture

      Agricultural businesses in the Middle East have a lot to contend with — water shortages, fluctuating rainfall, effects of climate change, high CO2 emissions per capita. The fertile lands of the region once provided conditions for incredible agricultural growth, which led to the evolution of human potential across millennia. Fast forward to the 21st century, and new power solutions now may provide the necessary energy pathways for successful local agriculture to flourish again in the region.

    17. US Wind + Storage: The Business Case

      US Wind + Storage: The Business Case

      As renewable energy continues to disrupt wholesale markets, energy storage has potential to exploit volatile energy prices by buying low and selling high, allowing a wind farm to shift its energy from periods of low prices to take advantage of spikes. As a result, announcements of wind plus storage hybrid systems are ramping up as these systems become more flexible and can accommodate a wide variety of renewable generation. However, wind energy’s less predictable output and its eligibility for the production tax credit and investment tax credit make the value proposition for paired storage less clear than it is for solar.
