    1. Future of solar energy storage is bright

      Future of solar energy storage is bright

      As the solar market is weaned off subsidies, forecasts for the expansion of solar energy storage are heartening. In the next 20 years, growth will primarily originate from five key customer segments: places without access to the electrical grid, residential and commercial in areas with good and moderate sun conditions, isolated grids (grid-connected solar electricity can be used locally thus reducing transmission/distribution losses), peak capacity in growth markets, and new large-scale power plants.

    2. Germany Meets Half Its Energy Demand From Solar ... for a few hours (storage mentioned briefly)

      Germany Meets Half Its Energy Demand From Solar ... for a few hours (storage mentioned briefly)

      These isolated milestones of renewable generation do raise the specter of storage, however. Without good options for storing excess power, any extra supply is essentially lost ... work is continuing on ideas like vehicle-to-grid (V2G) storage, where a fleet of electric cars could act as batteries for renewable energy.

    3. Pumped Hydro Can Pump Twice Daily Due To Solar Power

      Pumped Hydro Can Pump Twice Daily Due To Solar Power

      What’s new is that there is now a new low price trough in the afternoon in Germany due to solar power.  There is one peak price in the morning and another peak price in the late afternoon/early evening. In the mid afternoon on sunny days, wholesale prices are about the same as at midnight. This allows pumped hydro operators to recharge their reservoirs in the afternoon as well as the evening .

    7. China’s Five-Year-Plan for Renewable Energy Development includes grid storage

      China’s Five-Year-Plan for Renewable Energy Development includes grid storage

      Energy storage is the key solution for power grid and renewable energy, generation, transmission, distribution.  However, the energy storage industry faces challenges from technologies, application and policy. Many new technologies need to be tested and verified in maturity, reliability and economy. To maximize the efficiency for the integration of energy storage system in utility-scale, and to realize the industrialization for the industry, would be the focus. We need the clear profit mechanism and related policy, law, regulation for the healthy, rapid and stable development.

    9. The Numbers Behind Tesla and SolarCity's Home Energy Storage Business in California

      The Numbers Behind Tesla and SolarCity's Home Energy Storage Business in California

      IDC Energy Insights analyst Sam Jaffe reviewed Tesla and SolarCity’s applications with PG&E, and estimates that the two companies have applied for a combined 500kW of storage systems. Jaffe projects that the two companies’ applications add up to about 2MWh of storage capacity.  Jaffe estimates that Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric may be eyeing an additional 10MWh of home battery-solar backup systems in California in 2012.
