      Pacific Northwest Facility to Study Grid Security, Resilience

      Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been picked as the site of a new national grid energy research facility by the Department of Energy. The proposed project is expected to attract additional funding and researchers to PNNL. The facility would help modernize the nation’s utility grid to make it more resilient, secure, reliant and flexible. Affordable energy storage could help ensure that electricity supplies can recover rapidly if there are malicious attempts to tamper with the grid or if severe weather or natural disasters take down parts of the grid.

      California Flips Switch on First Grid-Connected Flow Battery

      Flow batteries, an emerging technology, could be more durable and hardy than the most popular grid-scale batteries in use today. Now, California's independent system operator has hooked one up. Located at the Miguel substation in Bonita, a flow battery system installed by San Diego Gas & Electric has undergone testing and fine-tuning as part of a four-year pilot project to develop storage technologies aimed at integrating more renewable energy sources into California’s grid.

      New Legislation Could Vastly Grow Solar-Power Production in North Carolina

      Republican Rep. John Szoka of Cumberland County has been criticized by some on the political right for sponsoring a bill that he says could vastly grow the amount of solar-powered electricity production in North Carolina. On Wednesday Szoka addressed one of the complaints by bringing the representative of industrial battery maker Alevo to the legislature to make a presentation about its products. Alevo's batteries are designed to store electricity for utility companies, including electricity from solar farms and wind farms, to help them maintain a consistent supply.
