      Energy Storage Association Chief Responds to Former US Energy Secretary Comments

      Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of ESA told Power Engineering International, that commentators should note the continuing decline in the price of the technology, and also the need to invest more in research and development to bolster its capabilities. Professor Chu, who served during the Obama administration, was reported in the Australian as saying that the huge lithium-ion battery built in South Australia by Tesla boss Elon Musk had cost about 40 times as much as an equivalent power plant using an existing hydro-electric dam. He said while the costs of building battery plants were likely to halve over the next decade, the approach would never be cheap enough to accommodate the big seasonal shifts in renewable power production.

    2. S&C Electric Leaves the Energy Storage Production Business

      S&C Electric Leaves the Energy Storage Production Business

      Chicago grid equipment company S&C Electric built its first large-scale battery storage system in 2006, before almost anyone else was doing it. Now, it's winding down that line of business. Storage will still feature in its microgrid offerings, but the employee-owned company will procure it rather than producing it in-house, said Senior Director for Business Development David Chiesa. Meanwhile, S&C is refocusing on what it sees as its core competency: medium-voltage switching and protection, with a special focus on microgrids.

    10. World's First Grid-Scale Pole-Mounted Energy Storage System Showing Promising Results

      World's First Grid-Scale Pole-Mounted Energy Storage System Showing Promising Results

      TORONTO, July 4, 2017 - A pole-mounted energy storage system located in Toronto's North York neighbourhood is showing positive results in the early stages of a pilot program. Put into service in August 2016, this unique energy storage system is mounted to the top of an existing hydro pole. The system stores energy during off-peak hours and releases power as needed. The project team is currently monitoring how the technology responds to real-time data. From initial results, the energy storage system has demonstrated an ability to reduce strain on the local transformer. The pilot continues to run and, if successful, it could become a standard that's rolled out with all new installations on the over 175,000 poles across the city.
