    1. ENGIE North America Announces Largest Utility-Scale Energy Storage Installation in Massachusetts

      ENGIE North America Announces Largest Utility-Scale Energy Storage Installation in Massachusetts

      Green Charge, an ENGIE NA subsidiary, will operate the three-megawatt energy storage system at Mt. Tom Solar, which began operation in January of this year adjacent to the former Mt. Tom Power Station. The system will be used to optimize intermittent solar energy and reduce utility capacity costs for HG&E, the system’s customer, while reducing stress on the HG&E distribution system

    2. Avista Receives Grant to Pilot a Shared Energy Economy Model

      Avista Receives Grant to Pilot a Shared Energy Economy Model

      Recently, Avista was awarded a grant from the Washington Department of Commerce and Governor Jay Inslee’s Clean Energy Fund 2 to demonstrate how a Shared Energy Economy can benefit Washington energy consumers. The grant is the latest example of Avista’s 127-year history of innovation and positions the utility for the energy future. Over the years, Avista has learned a lot about how to integrate intermittent renewable energy into the electrical grid from Avista’s Energy Storage Project in Pullman, which was funded by Avista with assistance from a grant from the Clean Energy Fund 1 in 2014.  Thanks to the grant from the Clean Energy Fund 2, Avista, with its partners, will build upon these learnings and take the next step by piloting a Shared Energy Economy model.

    3. Avista Receives First Storage Units for Energy Storage Project

      Avista Receives First Storage Units for Energy Storage Project

      Avista received its first set of Energy Storage units on Dec. 30 as a result of a $3.2 million grant from Washington Governor Jay Inslee and the Washington State Department of Commerce. The installation of the units is the first step in Avista’s research that will help address how to integrate power generated from intermittent renewable sources such as wind and solar into the electrical grid and better ways to improve power system reliability.  The units were installed at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. in Pullman, Wash. providing a “real-world” setting to conduct several “use case” scenario tests. For example, even small outages can interrupt SEL manufacturing processes and interrupt production.
