    1. 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.

      How Energy Storage Is Starting to Rewire the Electricity Industry

      The market for energy storage on the power grid is growing at a rapid clip, driven by declining prices and supportive government policies. Based on our research on the operation and costs of electricity grids, especially the benefits of new technologies, we are confident energy storage could transform the way American homeowners, businesses and utilities produce and use power.

      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.

      World's First Floating Wind Farm in Scotland to Use a 1.3MWh Battery

      Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil’s Batwind project in Scotland, combining wind turbines with energy storage, will have a battery system installed by system integrator Younicos. Batwind is under development through a partnership between Statoil and Masdar, the renewables and energy efficiency company owned by a government investment group in the United Arab Emirates’ Abu Dhabi. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by parties including Statoil and the Scottish government to develop the project in March 2016.

      Hawaiian Electric Takes First Steps to Utility-Scale Commercial Energy Storage

      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.

      The annual potential of solar energy far exceeds the world's per-year energy consumption, but the goal of using the sun to provide a significant fraction of global electricity demand is far from being realized. Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and their counterparts from similar institutes in Japan and Germany, along with researchers at universities and industry, assessed the recent trajectory of photovoltaics and outlined a potential worldwide pathway to produce a significant portion of the world's electricity from solar power in the new Science paper, "Terawatt-Scale Photovoltaics: Trajectories and Challenges.

      The energy storage market will expand dramatically in the coming years from an annual installation size of 6 gigawatts in 2017 to more than 40 by 2021. In addition, an IMS Research report predicts that the market for storing energy from solar panels will go from $200 million in 2012 to nearly $19 billion by the end of this year. This is especially impactful for residential solar, which has seen consistent growth in the past few years and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.
