    1. Small Scale Solar Battery w/ Diesel Generator Back-up

      Small Scale Solar Battery w/ Diesel Generator Back-up
      WhisperPower in the Netherlands has developed a system to provide electricity without a (permanent) grid connection. The Grid Independer can deliver 230V alternating current (AC)/50 Hz, 7 kilowatts (kW) from the internal maintenance-free gel battery via a true sine-wave inverter and can be run in parallel with the WhisperPower diesel generator.

      Nat Gas vs Batteries for grid renewable sources
      Grid storage via batteries could smooth out the variability of solar and wind’s [intermittencies, but providing 400 megawatts to meet California's projected needs] would be cost prohibitive. The real answer to improve alternative use and reduce greenhouse gases lies [with] natural gas-fired plants … GE just announced a $500M+, 510MW combined-cycle power plant … [with 61%] fuel efficiency, and can ramp up [its] output at over 50MW per minute.

      Military Wants Bases to be "island microgrids": Storage + Renewables
      Energy officers at military bases are working to turn their facilities into "island microgrids"--entities that can generate and store their own electricity, independent of the surrounding commercial grid. … in the event of a blackout, it could continue to function on electricity generated on-site--largely from renewable sources. These include utility-scale solar arrays, backed up with advance-battery solar-power storage units and diesel generators … Energy experts say that the military's approach could also offer a new model for towns and cities, protecting them from regional-grid blackouts--and boosting local renewable-energy production.

      Nokia-Siemens base station for mobile (cell) service
      Nokia Siemens Network (NSN) has set up a base station for German mobile service provider E-Plus that is powered by renewable energy. The transmission plant relies on a combination of solar and wind power, supported by fuel cell and deep-cycle battery technology. It is the first base station to operate without using Germany’s grid electricity.

      Stealthy Small Scale Commercial/Industrial Storage Startups

      Powergetics is targeting small businesses and using relatively small-scale lithium-ion batteries to provide ancillary services and value for customers that don't have loads large enough for the wholesale demand response market ... Solar Storage technology is "distributed, on-demand solar, with proprietary power and storage technology for 24-hour power from 100 kilowatts to 20 megawatts." The firm is doing enterprise and commercial-level solar/storage hybrid systems.

    8. DoE Loan Program Status

      DoE Loan Program Status
      President Obama has made it clear the nation that wins the clean energy race will likely be the nation that leads the global economy. In just over two years, the Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office has become one of our most significant and most effective tools to meet this challenge and promote America’s leadership in clean energy production and manufacturing. In that time, we have issued loans, loan guarantees, and conditional commitments for loan guarantees to 28 clean energy projects, 16 of which have reached financial close, meaning that they have met all requirements and their full loans are finalized. That equates to over $30 billion in financing for those projects with total project costs of over $47 billion. Project sponsors estimate these 28 projects will create or save over 61,000 jobs, including construction and operating jobs, while also building a foundation for clean energy technology manufacturing here in the United States. read more

    10. IRENA Maps Out Path to Double the Global Share of Renewable Energy

      IRENA Maps Out Path to Double the Global Share of Renewable Energy

      A new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency suggests the global renewable energy share can reach and perhaps even exceed 30 per cent by 2030 at no extra cost. The rest of the power system's resources have traditionally been adjusted around wind to support a reliable and efficient system. The research that led to this report challenges that concept.
