    1. Storage Can Solve Grid Overloading by Rooftop Solar

      Storage Can Solve Grid Overloading by Rooftop Solar
      Mr Hart, who owns EcoSouth Solar Electricity, said ... Solar systems "drop out for a few minutes" when voltages get too high, a phenomenon known as "tripping out" … Then they try to come online again and it pushes the voltage up again and it's very wearing" … The network companies say measures such as retrofits and battery storage can stop the "tripping" but can be costly.

    2. Solar Forecasting Meets Storage

      Solar Forecasting Meets Storage
      If grid operators know the energy potential of solar assets down to 1 minute … you could treat solar energy like a pile of coal, you’ll know how much energy there will be to draw upon, Meagher said. “… some solar projects have energy storage and some have forecasting, but integrating the two is what you want,” Kleissl said. He said that with energy storage … an operator could store and later dispatch solar energy during a predicted period of heavy cloud cover.

      Kauai, HI Plans 10MW PV Plant with Storage

      Kauai Island Utility Cooperative plans to develop a 10-megawatt photovoltaic project that would be the largest solar power facility in the state. The KIUC is seeking approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service to pay for the PV and battery storage project with a $68 million federal loan that was previously earmarked for construction of an oil-fired, 10-megawatt combustion turbine generator.

    4. Opinion: Solar Thermal in Deserts Consumes Too Much Water (vs PV)

      Opinion: Solar Thermal in Deserts Consumes Too Much Water (vs PV)
      Concentrating solar thermal power has promised big additions to renewable energy production with the additional benefit of energy storage. But with significant water consumption in desert locations, is the energy storage benefit of concentrating solar enough to compete with the dramatically falling cost of solar PV?

      Schneider Electric Launches Microgrid at DoE's Solar Decathlon

      Schneider Electric announced the launch of a fully-functioning micro-grid solution within the solar village at the U.S. Department of Energy's 2011 Solar Decathlon, a challenge to 19 international collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. The micro-grid, which connects solar homes to the Washington, D.C.-area utility, Pepco, allows the village to feed excess solar energy back into the regional electric grid

      PNM 1st to fully integrate solar storage with grid

      A small solar plant and its experimental battery storage system went live in Albuquerque on Monday in what Public Service Company of New Mexico said was the first solar storage installation in the country to be fully integrated with a utility's power grid. The storage system consists of 1,280 advanced lead acid batteries housed inside eight climate-controlled containers. It can store about 250 kilowatts, or half of the 500 kilowatts of power generated by an adjacent 2,158-panel solar array constructed as part of the project.

      GE doubles MPX's solar output and enters Brazilian market

      GE and MPX, a division of EBX Group announced an agreement that will double the output of MPX's first solar power plant in Brazil. MPX’s Taua plant in Fortaleza, Ceara state, converts sunlight into 1MW by means of 4680 solar panels. A connection about 360km from the facility links the output to the national electrical grid through a local substation.

    10. Copper Crossing Solar Ranch goes online

      Copper Crossing Solar Ranch goes online
      Nearly a year after the Iberdrola Renewables announced their plans to build a photovoltaic solar power plant on 144 acres of former private agricultural land in San Tan Valley, the Copper Crossing solar power plant has gone online. Copper is now producing 20MW of solar energy, approximately 54 million kilowatt-hours annually, enough to power approximately 3,700 Salt River Project customers’ homes. SRP has designated most of the energy from this facility for schools, school districts and/or industrial customers. Approximately 10 percent is reserved for residential customers.
