    1. Can a Flow Battery Steal the Throne From TEP's 4.5-Cent Solar-Plus-Storage PPA?

      Can a Flow Battery Steal the Throne From TEP's 4.5-Cent Solar-Plus-Storage PPA?

      Signing the cheapest PPA is like conquering the Iron Throne: Before you even have time to enjoy the accomplishment, someone's on their way to take it from you. In May, NextEra Energy Resources secured a 4.5-cent per kilowatt-hour solar-plus-storage PPA with Tucson Electric Power. That's low for just solar, but the 100 megawatts of generation will come backed by 30 megawatts of 4-hour-duration energy storage. The system is set to run by the end of 2019.

      Sault Energy Storage Plant Ready to Launch

      Sault Ste. Marie will soon have an energy storage system online that will allow the province's Independent Electricity System Operator a chance to study new technology designed to make the power grid more efficient and cheaper. Convergent Energy has completed construction on its 7MW energy storage project, located on PUC property in the city's east end at Trunk and McNabb streets adjacent to one of its transmission substations. A seven megawatt battery project would be equivalent to the storage of about 70,000 light bulbs. The project can balance 60 megawatts of photovoltaic solar capacity and 150 megawatts of peak load at the end of a 115 kV radical circuit.

    3. Sunrun's Evolution From Home Solar Installer to Comprehensive Energy Solution Provider

      Sunrun's Evolution From Home Solar Installer to Comprehensive Energy Solution Provider

      A decade may not seem like a remarkably long time to have been in business, but it certainly is in the world of rooftop solar. In an industry known for its ups and downs, residential solar installer Sunrun hit the commendable milestone last week of 10 years in operation. Executive Chairman and co-founder Ed Fenster and CEO and co-founder Lynn Jurich launched Sunrun in 2007 from an attic in San Francisco and signed the company’s first customers from a booth at a county fair. Since then, Sunrun says it has built more than $2.5 billion in solar systems, saved customers more than $150 million on their energy bills and generated more than 2.4 billion kilowatt-hours of clean energy.

      National Grid Revises UK Energy Storage Expectations

      National Grid has reduced its forecasts for electricity storage capacity in the UK down to just 10.7GW by 2050 in the most ambitious scenario set out within its future projections for the energy sector. The latest Future Energy Scenarios (FES) document, published on Thursday, suggested the greatest level of storage would be deployed under its 'Consumer Power' scenario, which predicts a highly economic market driven by innovation over environmental concerns.

      World's First Grid-Scale Pole-Mounted Energy Storage System Showing Promising Results

      TORONTO, July 4, 2017 - A pole-mounted energy storage system located in Toronto's North York neighbourhood is showing positive results in the early stages of a pilot program. Put into service in August 2016, this unique energy storage system is mounted to the top of an existing hydro pole. The system stores energy during off-peak hours and releases power as needed. The project team is currently monitoring how the technology responds to real-time data. From initial results, the energy storage system has demonstrated an ability to reduce strain on the local transformer. The pilot continues to run and, if successful, it could become a standard that's rolled out with all new installations on the over 175,000 poles across the city.

      Energy Storage Industry Hopes for Stroke of Gov. Cuomo's Pen

      New York looks poised to be another big win for the energy storage industry, pending the signature of Gov. Andrew Cuomo on a recently passed bill to create an energy storage target. Cuomo has yet to show his hand, but energy storage advocates are hopeful that the already green-leaning governor will sign SB 5190/AB 6571. The bipartisan legislation requires that the public service commission set a target for energy storage, but gives the commission the flexibility to transform it into a mandate.
