      Sempra Energy : University of California-Irvine and SoCalGas Partner to Design "Advanced Energy Community"

      LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12, 2017 -- Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced that it will partner with the University of California-Irvine's  Advanced Power & Energy Program to design an "Advanced Energy Community" in an underserved neighborhood in Huntington Beach.  The community will be planned as a replicable model that optimizes a full spectrum of diverse energy options, including solar, wind, and renewable natural gas. It will also consider the capability of storing wind- and solar-generated energy with power-to-gas technology. "We're excited to co-fund this worthy project in collaboration with the California Energy Commission," said Lisa Alexander, vice president of customer solutions and communications at SoCalGas. "Creating an Advanced Energy Community will serve as a guide for future policy and planning in California to keep our energy system sustainable and make a difference in our clean-energy future."

      EDF Renewable Energy Awarded Behind-the-Meter Energy Storage Contract

      EDF Renewable Energy announced they were awarded a contract to provide Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) with 40MWh of battery storage capacity. Under the contract, EDF RE will build, own and operate a portfolio of behind-the-meter (BTM) battery storage projects for commercial and industrial customers within the PG&E service territory. The contract will allow EDF RE to assist selected PG&E customers to lower their utility bills by reducing demand charges, maximizing consumption during off-peak hours, and collecting revenue from wholesale market participation. Each project will optimize the host customer’s energy usage and operating costs by utilizing EDF’s proprietary PEGASE Energy Management System (EMS) to strategically operate the batteries.

      Hyundai Plans World’s Largest Grid Storage Battery In Korea

      Elon Musk set the world on its ear in 2017 when he promised Tesla could build and install a 129 megawatt-hour grid storage battery in South Australia in 100 days or less. The kicker? If Tesla failed to meet the deadline, the battery would be free. In fact, Tesla beat its own deadline. The battery got turned on in late November, weeks ahead of schedule. Now Hyundai says it intends to build and install a battery that will be 50% larger than the South Australia facility near Ulsan on the southeast coast of South Korea. It is scheduled for completion in February of next year.

      Energy Storage Association sees storage as critical to future reliability and resiliency in U.S. grid - Daily Energy Insider

      With the release of a white paper laying out a pathway for the United States to reach 35 gigawatts (GW) of energy storage systems by 2025, the Energy Storage Association is driving forward the notion that energy storage can — and should — play a sizeable part in the nation’s grid. At the helm of this effort is ESA CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman, who spoke with Daily Energy Insider this week regarding her thoughts on national policy, ambitious new energy plans, and where technology and utilities fit into the picture. Speakes-Backman is the organization’s first CEO, having taken the position in July, but her plans have already proven to have great aspirations.

      The 10 Stories That Defined Energy Storage in 2017

      The industry stepped up with two major, high-speed deployments to resolve grid emergencies. Utility-scale projects got bigger and longer lasting. Major international conglomerates bought up storage startups. And all the major solar developers started getting into the game. Much of the action remained at the pilot stage. But some projects showed that storage economics already make sense without subsidies, grants or other interventions -- in the right circumstances, of course.

      PG&E Expands Commitment to Energy Storage

      SAN FRANCISCO--Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) strengthened its commitment to a clean energy future with the presentation of six energy storage contracts totaling 165 megawatts (MW) to the California Public Utilities Commission for review and approval on December 1. California’s Energy Storage Decision requires investor-owned utilities to procure 1,325MW of storage by 2020. PG&E’s share is 580MW. Since 2015, PG&E has signed contracts for 79MW of new energy storage capability. Storage plays an increasingly important role for California energy companies as they work to achieve the state’s ambitious clean energy goals. By the end of 2017, PG&E forecasts that about 33 percent of its retail electric deliveries will come from renewable sources. Energy storage will help integrate many of those resources, such as wind and solar, which are intermittent or provide peak output during times of low demand.

      The Multibillion-Dollar Opportunity for Battery Storage - Motley Fool

      Tesla completed the world's largest battery storage installation in South Australia recently, a 129 Megawatt-hours (MWh) project that will shave the peak demand in a high-cost part of the country. The project shows how big energy storage projects can be, but it's also just the tip of the iceberg for energy storage. A new report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) predicts that 305,000 MWh of energy storage will be installed between 2017 and 2030, or 2,364 projects the size of Tesla's South Australia storage system. The numbers are mind-boggling, but if the history of renewable energy is any indication, the opportunity could be even bigger than the most bullish projections.
