      German offshore wind developer looks to Norway pumped hydro storage

      !f wind reaches 20-25% of electricity supply capacity, it could be meeting 100% of demand during off-peak times, making storage essential. “You need the Norwegians for that [for their pumped-hydro capacity]. … we have them on board, as Statoil, Statkraft are the partners of RWE on this project.” [said Vahrenholt of RWE Innogy]

    3. Investments in new renewable plants exceeded fossil for first time

      Investments in new renewable plants exceeded fossil for first time
      Renewable energy is surpassing fossil fuels for the first time in new power-plant investments. Electricity from wind, sun, waves and biomass drew $187B last year compared with $157B for natural gas, oil and coal, according to Bloomberg. Accelerating installations of solar- and wind-power plants led to lower equipment prices, making clean energy more competitive with coal.

    6. Alberta Study: Energy storage key for wind power producers

      Alberta Study: Energy storage key for wind power producers
      Alberta (Canada) wholesale power prices fluctuate every 10 minutes. The new study, released this week, examined generation from several wind farms and power prices during that period. It found wind farms could have increased their revenue by up to 43% if they had been able to store power and add it to the market as demand - and prices - increased. When prices were lower, they could recharge their storage.
