      MISO Plans Storage Market Roles in Response to FERC Order 841

      The Midcontinent ISO (MISO) has provided greater detail on expanding wholesale market access for energy storage resources in compliance with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Order 841. MISO is proposing that the capacity of an energy storage resource be gauged on two measurements: power (MW) and energy (MWh). The dual storage measurement is designed to give more latitude for the projects to participate in capacity and energy markets.

      Infigen Energy Invests in Tesla Big Battery Energy Storage System

      Wind energy company Infigen Energy plans to install a 52 MWh Tesla Powerpack battery energy storage system in South Australia. The battery system will be next to its 278 MW Lake Bonney Wind Farm near Mount Gambier. The Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) will cost around $38 million to build and install. ARENA and the South Australian government will each contribute funding of $5 million towards the project. Once built, BESS will be connected to the National Energy Market. It will also enable Infigen to firm up an extra 18 MW of renewable supply.

      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.

      As Second Wave of State Storage Targets Builds, Utilities Propose New Projects

      nergy storage has been taking root across the country, but coastal states, such as California, Massachusetts and Oregon, have taken the lead in implementing related policies. That could change as states such as Colorado and Nevada move closer to potentially ambitious policies to support energy storage. Rising renewable penetration combined with falling costs for lithium-ion batteries is driving many states to explore policies that encourage energy storage.

      Grid-scale Solar and Battery Project in Hawaii Gets Approval

      The first grid-scale solar and battery energy storage project to be built on the Hawaiian island of Moloka‘i has gained approval from the state’s Public Utilities Commission. The 2.6MW solar farm and its 3MW battery storage system will be owned and operated by Moloka‘i New Energy Partners, which will sell electricity to Maui Electric Company. The facility is expected to be in service by the end of 2019, when it will start providing savings to the island’s 3,200 customers over a 22-year contract.
