    1. Home Storage Sales Rocket as Australia Moves Towards Standardisation

      Home Storage Sales Rocket as Australia Moves Towards Standardisation

      Australia’s energy and environment minister has hailed the country’s accelerating residential energy storage sales as a report has emerged from Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel which says the “financial equation is straightforward” for adding batteries to home PV systems. Finkel’s office produced reports during 2017 which advised the government on the power market, opportunities and challenges for renewables and decarbonisation and the role of clean energy technologies in boosting the resiliency of energy networks across Australia. At the tail end of the year, he also published a report on the “transformative role” of energy storage.

      E.ON and Vertiv Partner to Offer Virtual Power Plant Services for Critical Infrastructure

      International energy giant E.ON and U.S.-based Vertiv (previously Emerson Network Power) have joined forces to deliver virtual power plant services in Germany, with an eye toward other markets worldwide. Partnering with Vertiv gives E.ON — a European-based company with $67.9 billion in assets — the opportunity to offer uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery-based solutions to market segments with mission critical energy needs, such as data centers and telecommunications. Vertiv, which builds critical infrastructure, gains access to E.ON’s customer base.

    3. World's First Green Energy Storage Demonstrator

      World's First Green Energy Storage Demonstrator

      The world's first green energy storage demonstrator is now live in the UK and has brought carbon-free fuel, that can be stored or transported for later use, a step closer. The demonstrator project offers a way to decouple the supply of electricity (governed by fluctuating renewables) from the demand (driven by consumer dynamics) and is using renewable electricity to obtain hydrogen from water via electrolysis, nitrogen via air separation, and to power the Haber-Bosch process to make ammonia. Ammonia produced in this way can be a completely carbon-free and practical bulk energy source. Read more at: https://phys.org/news/2018-06-world-green-energy-storage.html#jCp

      Iowa University to Install NEXTracker Solar+Storage Power Plant

      Iowa-based Ideal Energy is constructing a 1.1 MW power plant at the Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, using the NEXTracker NX Flow integrated solar-plus-storage system. The project will be built on University land and, when completed, it is projected to be one of the largest solar-plus-storage power plants in the state, producing enough energy to cover nearly a third of the University’s annual electricity usage. In addition to those savings, NX Flow will use peak-shaving to significantly reduce MUM’s utility bill during high-demand times.

    9. Energy Storage Charges Forward

      Energy Storage Charges Forward

      Use it or lose it. Few products in the world have a shorter shelf life than electricity. That's why pretty much everyone involved in the power sector — from utilities to buyers to startups to state regulators — is putting more energy than ever behind ways to extend it. That's fueling a boom in projects and investments centered on advanced battery chemistries and alternative energy storage approaches, such as hydrogen fuel cells and thermal options that use hot water or ice to conserve power. The holy grail over time is to create a network of resources that can be used in concert with solar and wind farms. The idea is to balance those intermittent renewable resources, help their production output become more predictable and make it easier to integrate distributed power plants into the grid.

      HAYWARD, Calif., April 01, 2018 - Primus Power (“Primus”), the leading long duration stationary energy storage company, announced today that Etechwin is operating an EnergyPod 2 at their Beijing campus. Etechwin is the microgrid subsidiary of Goldwind, a world-leading wind turbine manufacturer. The curtailment on wind energy is a significant economic problem, especially in western China. As stated by Bloomberg, "drawing upon data from China's National Energy Administration, Bloomberg New Energy Finance recently estimated that owners of China’s wind and solar assets forewent approximately $4.7 billion in potential revenue due to curtailment in 2017.” In June 2017, the Qinghai province recognized the critical role that energy storage can play to reduce curtailment and proposed new legislation that would mandate the use of energy storage systems with new wind turbine installations.

      Power Prices Go Negative in Germany Due to an Excess of Renewable Energy Sources

      Germany has invested an estimated 200 billion Euros over the past two decades to promote the production of cleaner electricity, with over a third of the country's energy production coming from renewable sources in 2016. While this may sound like a good thing, it does introduce problems for the electricity market, issues that have to be resolved to make energy grids based on renewable energy sources more viable.

      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.

      Sri Lanka on Path to 100% Renewable Energy Says a New Joint Report by UNDP and ADB

      New York, 16 Aug - Sri Lanka can meet its current and future electricity demand by judicial use of renewable energy by 2050, according to a joint study by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Asian Development Bank (ADB). The report, titled Assessment of Sri Lanka’s Power Sector—100 percent Electricity Generation through Renewable Energy by 2050, notes that by 2050, the country’s installed electricity generation capacity needs will increase from the current 3,700 megawatts (MW) to about 34,000 MW.  Of this, 15,000 MW will be wind energy and about 16,000 MW will be solar energy. Balance capacity is expected to be met by hydro and biomass based power plants. Further to addition of renewable electricity generating sources, the study has identified need to introduce electricity storage solution which should provide instantaneous power of 3,600 MW and energy storage capacity of 15,000 MWh. This will ensure stability of the electricity grid.

      The Future of Renewable Energy is in Texas

      Renewable energy isn't at a crossroads in the U.S. so much as on a two-lane highway: While the federal government hits the gas on fossil fuels, states are speeding ahead to develop renewable energy -- and reaching new milestones. For example, enough solar energy is being collected every year to power all the single-family homes in Florida. Three states generate more than one-third of their energy from wind and solar. Some 160,000 electric cars were sold last year -- enough to supply the entire population of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. And earlier this year, wind and solar produced one-tenth of the nation's energy for an entire month.

      Renewable Energy Presents No Threat to Grid, Despite Trump Aides Claim

      In 1986, President Ronald Reagan famously removed solar panels from the White House roof, capping a misguided energy policy that severely slashed investment in renewable energy. Thirty-one years later, President Trump has committed a more consequential mistake by rejecting the Paris climate accord. But the story of how solar energy survived and thrived after Reagan holds an encouraging lesson for us.
