    2. Nevada Regulators Approve NV Energy Plan for 1,190 MW Solar, 590 MW Storage

      Nevada Regulators Approve NV Energy Plan for 1,190 MW Solar, 590 MW Storage

      The Nevada Public Utilities Commission on Dec. 4 approved NV Energy's Integrated Resource Plan, including three solar projects totaling 1,190 MW and 590 MW of energy storage capacity. All of the new projects will be located in southern Nevada and are planned to be online by 2024. The utility last year committed to doubling its renewable energy resources by 2023 and says it is on track to meet that goal. The largest of the projects is Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners' Gemini solar+storage project. The company says it is believed to be one of the largest projects of its kind globally, with capital expenditures expected to top $1 billion.

    6. Utility-Scale Storage Critical to Achieving Massachusetts Carbon Goals: UMass Study

      Utility-Scale Storage Critical to Achieving Massachusetts Carbon Goals: UMass Study

      The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is likely to fall short of its greenhouse gas emission goals if it cannot implement utility-scale storage, according to a new study. More than 70% of the state’s two pumped-hydro storage facilities — with a collective capacity of around 1,800 MW — is currently unutilized due to the lack of market incentives, according to researchers. The lack of utility-scale storage could mean that the state’s grid remains “dirty” even with a high penetration of renewables.

      Businesses See Storing Energy While the Sun Shines as Key to California Power Shut-off Strategy

      After three years of wildfires and now, blackouts, more and more business owners are looking to the power of the sun and storage of a battery pack for peace of mind. “I tell people if they have solar, think about adding batteries,” said Aron Moore, owner and president of Sun First Solar of San Rafael. “Many of our farm, winery and grocery store customers are already using solar and portable generators if needed, but today everyone is talking about storage.”

    9. Salt River Project to Install Large Battery for Big Arizona Solar Plant

      Salt River Project to Install Large Battery for Big Arizona Solar Plant

      Salt River Project will build the biggest battery on the power grid in Arizona as part of its pledge last year to add 1,000 megawatts of solar to its supply by 2025. SRP said last year it would reduce its reliance on natural-gas-burning power plants and save money by adding solar and batteries to its system. At the time, SRP only had about 200 megawatts of solar, but now the electric utility has lined up projects that get it about 60% of the way toward that 1,000-megawatt goal.

    13. In Search for Cheaper, Longer Energy Storage, Mountain Gravity Could Eventually Top Lithium-Ion

      In Search for Cheaper, Longer Energy Storage, Mountain Gravity Could Eventually Top Lithium-Ion

      Mountain gravity energy storage could be a viable way to store electricity for longer durations and at larger scales than lithium-ion battery storage can, according to a study recently published in the academic journal Energy. The idea of gravity as a form of storage is an example of ongoing research into additional storage options beyond lithium-ion batteries. Despite large cost reductions over the past several years, some experts still view lithium-ion systems as not economically-efficient enough at scale to fully back up the amount of renewable energy expected to come onto the grid due to states’ long-term clean energy goals.
