      A Battery Of Choices: Embracing R&D & Investment In Storage

      Imagine a world where we depend on sunlight and the wind for most of our energy needs. Then imagine nighttime and our main source of electricity literally falls asleep. Unless our future electricity system represents a giant “super-grid” with tons of wires connecting everywhere from San Francisco to Beijing, we will need somewhere to put that electricity when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow. Along comes battery storage, one of the emerging technology advancements of the 21st century that could revolutionize the way we produce and consume electricity.

      CAISO Could Lose 28 Gas Plants and Keep the Lights on: UCS

      California could retire 28 natural gas plants without impacting electricity reliability, the Union of Concern Scientists said in a report published Tuesday. In order to meet the California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) target to reduce carbon to 42 million metric tons (MMT) by 2030 in the most economic way possible, the UCS model chose not to build any new gas plants to replace less efficient combined-cycle gas turbines.
