    3. Massachusetts Grants Help Get Energy Storage Projects off the Ground

      Massachusetts Grants Help Get Energy Storage Projects off the Ground

      A year after Massachusetts awarded $20 million in energy storage grants, the first project is online and showing promise to help shave peak demand, save customers money, and pave the way for more solar power. Municipal utility Braintree Electric Light Department (BELD) paid for most of the $2.6 million battery installation using its reserve funds and some of its business customers invested additional money in exchange for lower demand charges.

    4. Battery Storage to Become $1.2trn Market, with Australia Leading the Way

      Battery Storage to Become $1.2trn Market, with Australia Leading the Way

      Australia is set to lead the global energy storage boom, which according to a report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) will grow to a $1.2trn industry. The global energy storage market is set to draw in $1.2trn investment by 2040 and the cost of batteries is also set to significantly decrease. The report, entitled the Long-Term Energy Storage Outlook, predicts a strong uptake of stationary energy storage, thanks to households trying to maximise solar self-generation and networks working to balance increasingly renewable grids.

    5. Puerto Rico Seeks 100 Percent Renewable Energy

      Puerto Rico Seeks 100 Percent Renewable Energy

      In the wake of Hurricane Maria, the Puerto Rican government is proposing the enactment of the Puerto Rico Energy Public Policy Act, a bill focusing on committing the island to a 100 percent renewable energy grid by 2050. Senate Bill 1121 was introduced by the chairman of the Senate Special Committee on Energy Affairs, Larry Seilhamer, and Senate Minority Leader Eduardo Bhatia. The bill’s purpose is to eliminate the monopoly held for decades by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) by allowing the sale of PREPA’s power plants while putting the transmission and distribution systems under a private concessionaire. Consequently, the strategy would begin to shift the power grid away from its resilience on oil and toward renewables.

      Ahead of Biggest Energy Storage Rule Change Yet, US' Transmission Network Operators Open up Markets

      Transmission system operators in the US have begun making their moves to accommodate energy storage into their wholesale markets, with New England ISO and Southwest Power Pool both making filings in the past month. In February the US’ main regulator the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), issued FERC Order 841, instructing the US’ six regional electricity transmission organisations to reconfigure their wholesale markets to allow energy storage to participate. The ISOs and RTOs have about a year to respond in full.

      With San Diego Airport Microgrid, No More Blackouts and $6.4M/year Saved

      Before the San Diego International Airport microgrid was built, the airport experienced four to five blackouts a year, each which lasted two to eight hours, according to Darr Hashempour, CEO of DH Green Energy, the consulting firm that designed and built the microgrid. The blackouts — which occurred during San Diego Gas and Electric’s (SDG&E) outages — embarrassed airport executives, upset airport customers, and spurred losses for airlines, he said.

      Xcel Energy, United Power Among Utilities Using Batteries

      For longtime proponents of renewable energy, figuring out how to keep the lights on when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine has been a key challenge. Harnessing the excess energy from a turbine or solar panel to use later was the “holy grail” or “golden key,” as one Colorado utility executive calls it.

      World's Largest Microgrid Moves One Step Closer In Palau

      Tucked away in the Micronesia region of the Pacific Ocean is the small Republic of Palau, boasting a population of just over 20,000. The country will nevertheless soon be home to what is believed to be the world’s largest microgrid consisting of solar, diesel, and energy storage, representing at least 45% of the island nation’s total demand. While the microgrid has been in development for some time, the Republic of Palau this week announced the signing of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with ENGIE EPS, a worldwide microgrid and energy storage pioneer which will complete the project.

      New York to Invest (another) $40 Million in Energy Storage Deployment

      In continued pursuit of his state’s 50% renewable by 2030 and 1,500 MW of energy storage by 2025, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo (D) has announced that $40 million will be made available to solar projects that integrate energy storage. Like CPS Energy earlier this week, New York is recognizing the necessity of expansive energy storage coverage to shift solar energy’s availability to times of peak demand, outlining in a release that the storage will be used for that goal. This reasoning is likely also behind Gov. Cuomo’s unique battery storage goal, first unveiled in his 2018 State of the State address this past January.
