    1. Landfills emerge as promising battery storage sites to back up renewable energy

      Landfills emerge as promising battery storage sites to back up renewable energy

      Solar panel installations have been one of the fastest-growing types of energy infrastructure in recent years and landfills have become fitting sites due to the sheer amount of land required. Now, for many of the same reasons, energy project developers are looking to landfills for a technology growing even faster than solar: battery storage. Storage on landfills is still a novel idea, with closed sites seen as largely the most suitable, and only a few examples of these projects exist.

    4. Hawaiian utility selects huge solar and storage proposals on way to 100% renewables

      Hawaiian utility selects huge solar and storage proposals on way to 100% renewables

      The Hawaiian Electric Company, the largest electric utility on the Hawaiian Islands, has selected 16 solar-plus-storage or standalone storage projects on the islands of Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii that will deliver a combined 459MW of solar generation and nearly 3GWh of power storage. The projects were awarded as part of Hawaiian Electric’s efforts to transition to using 100% renewable energy for electric generation by 2045, and date back to a request for proposals issued by the company back in August of 2019 – then the largest single renewable energy procurement effort in Hawaii and among the largest by any US utility.

    5. Replace NYC peakers with renewables+storage? Plant owners say they're working on it

      Replace NYC peakers with renewables+storage? Plant owners say they're working on it

      New York City ratepayers shelled out $4.5 billion in capacity payments in the last decade to keep 16 fossil fuel-based peaking plants available, according to a recent analysis. Owners of the plants say they are already working to add energy storage and make the facilities more efficient and concede that running them less would help improve air quality.

      PacifiCorp Readies Multi-Gigawatt Solicitation for Wind, Solar-plus-Storage Projects

      Utility group PacifiCorp is about to open a gusher of opportunity for wind, solar and energy storage developers in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain regions. Last year PacifiCorp finalized a landmark integrated resource plan (IRP) that for the first time envisions it relying on large amounts of wind farms and solar backed by energy storage to meet its long-range energy needs. Now the utility, part of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate, is preparing a solicitation for projects to meet that plan’s needs through 2024, taking a concrete step toward its vision.

    10. US Battery Storage Prospects Lifted by Policy Progress, Cost Reduction

      US Battery Storage Prospects Lifted by Policy Progress, Cost Reduction

      Battery storage deployment in the US is set for a rapid acceleration from 2020. That is one of the key takeaways from the latest S&P Global Platts Analytics’ US Power Storage Outlook, released to clients on December 18. In addition, while megawatt deployments in 2019 were at 2018 levels, the storage duration of battery storage assets increased in the past years, pointing to new usages. State policies and peaking capacity needs will remain the major drivers of near to medium-term battery deployments. Platts Analytics expects more than 13 GW of utility-scale battery storage to be commissioned by 2024 in the US.

      Local Solar Installers Embrace Big New Opportunity: Home Battery Add-Ons

      From Texas to Florida, more homeowners are interested in pairing batteries with rooftop solar. Local solar installation companies have faced a number of challenges in recent years, from the decline of state net metering policies to the Trump administration's import tariffs. Now, a potentially significant opportunity is coming into focus for them: home battery systems. 2019 was a big year for both residential solar and home storage in the U.S. Power shutoffs in California and demand pull-in from the soon-to-decline federal Investment Tax Credit helped both industries log new records.

    17. Utility-Scale Storage Critical to Achieving Massachusetts Carbon Goals: UMass Study

      Utility-Scale Storage Critical to Achieving Massachusetts Carbon Goals: UMass Study

      The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is likely to fall short of its greenhouse gas emission goals if it cannot implement utility-scale storage, according to a new study. More than 70% of the state’s two pumped-hydro storage facilities — with a collective capacity of around 1,800 MW — is currently unutilized due to the lack of market incentives, according to researchers. The lack of utility-scale storage could mean that the state’s grid remains “dirty” even with a high penetration of renewables.
