    3. Is 35 GW of Energy Storage Possible by 2035?

      Is 35 GW of Energy Storage Possible by 2035?

      Energy storage could save the grid $4 billion in all and add as as many as 167,000 new jobs. That is according to the Energy Storage Association that says as much as 35 gigawatts of new energy storage could be added by 2025, all of which would alleviate the pressures that the current system faces. In its so-called “35×25: A Vision for Energy Storage” white paper, the Energy Storage Association did note that the US now has about 0.5 gigawatts of installed energy storage, deployed at both the retail and wholesale levels. In conjunction with its partner, Navigant Research, it says that getting to 35 gigawatts is possible because markets need it.

      National Grid: 'Don't Put All Your Eggs in the Frequency Response Basket'

      A representative of National Grid, the UK’s transmission system operator (TSO), has said that energy storage will be “integral” to the network’s flexibility strategy – while urging developers not to rely solely on early frequency regulation contracts. Claire Spedding, head of business development at National Grid, spoke at an event last week to launch “Energy storage: the next wave”, a market report on the technology and industry around it in Britain. The report is published by Regen, a non-profit consultancy promoting renewables and energy efficiency.

      Australian Grid Map Shows Best Locations for Energy Storage and Other DERs

      Australia has launched new interactive maps of the electricity grid specifically to support decentralised usage of distributed energy resources (DERs) including battery storage, renewable energy and smart demand management. The Network Opportunity Maps, a collaboration between research agencies, government and industry, aims to progress localised energy solutions across the country. The geo-spatial mapping goes hand in hand with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency’s (ARENA) three-year demand response trial projects, all with an aim to reduce network costs and improve grid reliability.

      Washington Utilities Need to Consider Storage in Resource Planning, Regulators Say

      Regulators in Washington State on Wednesday issued a policy statement telling investor-owned utilities in the state they should include energy storage in their planning processes. The statement presents a framework aimed at guiding the state’s Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) in its ongoing rulemaking for integrated resource plans (IRPs) that regulated utilities file with the commission every two years.

      Tesla Starts Shipping Powerpacks to Puerto Rico

      Elon Musk said last week that Tesla would accelerate its effort to help bring power back to Puerto Rico after sending a few hundred Powerwall battery packs to the island where the electric grid was destroyed by hurricanes last month. Now we learn that Tesla is indeed stepping it up with now a new shipment of Powerpacks. A single Powerpack 2 battery pack has the same energy capacity (210 kWh) as almost 16 Powerwall 2 battery packs combined (each 13.5 kWh).

      It’s been a tough year for North American electric grids — hurricanes, heat, fires, an eclipse. But an Arizona utility is reporting that it did just fine with some help from new microgrids and energy storage. “Driving past a microgrid or energy storage unit, many customers wouldn’t look twice, but those technologies are playing an increasingly important role in delivering efficient energy on the hottest days of the year,” said Jacob Tetlow, vice president of transmission and distribution operations at Arizona Public Service (APS), which serves about 2.7 million people

      Policy Biggest Obstacle for Storage, Panel Says

      SAN DIEGO — The electricity sector continues to identify possible applications for energy storage while costs for the technology steadily decline, but the lack of cohesive federal, state and local policy remains the chief obstacle to integration, a panel of experts said Wednesday. “The technology piece has caught up. What we cannot afford to do is let the policy drag it down,” Kiran Kumaraswamy of AES Energy Storage said during a panel discussion at the Infocast Transmission Summit West. Industry and policymakers can develop a framework for adopting storage once they determine the magnitude and type of need for the technology, he said.

      Hawaiian Electric Takes First Steps to Utility-Scale Commercial Energy Storage

      Hawaiian Electric Co. (HECO) has big plans for energy storage, but is wary of moving too quickly. The utility is looking for better storage technology and economics before moving too much on deployment. The island state is often considered a test case or laboratory for the integration of renewable energy. With a 100% renewable portfolio standard in Hawaii and a 2045 target date, the state’s main utility is quite focused on what its generation mix is going to be and how it is going to get there.

      Senators Push Tax Credit Bill for Energy Storage onto Lawmakers' Desks

      Senator Martin Heinrich has proposed granting tax relief for purchasers of energy storage systems, in a similar way to how the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is applied to residential solar PV purchases. Heinrich, democratic senator for the state of New Mexico, along with Minnesota’s Al Franken, also a democrat, last week introduced S.1851, a bill in Congress to create research and demonstration programmes for energy storage systems. Heinrich, with Franken as co-sponsor, also that week introduced S.1868, “a bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide tax credits for energy storage technologies, and for other purposes”.

      Legislation recently introduced in California to cut red tape and reduce permitting times for energy storage systems and currently awaiting the state Governor’s rubber stamp could also halve the costs associated with paperwork, commercial system provider Stem has said. Assembly Bill 546 (AB 546) was authored by Democrat David Chiu, representing the 17th Assembly District of California, which includes the eastern half of San Francisco. The bill, which seeks to streamline permitting processes by, among other things, allowing for online forms to be submitted for approval, passed the Assembly floor successfully on 7 September. It now awaits the attention of the California Governor, climate hawk Jerry Brown.

      While lithium-ion is rapidly racing ahead to become the “de facto grid storage solution” and is the most popular technology choice by far, vendors of other types of batteries are also targeting the market, with varying degrees of success. US firm Navigant Research published ‘Navigant Research Leaderboard: Non-lithium ion batteries for grid storage’,  earlier this month, examining the technologies, business models and strategies for commercialisation and larger scale production of energy storage batteries that sit outside the many different sub-chemistries making up the lithium battery market ecosystem.
