      Playing Nice: What the Duke Energy Microgrid Test Bed Teaches

      Integrating – not just adding distributed energy resources – is the key to strengthening the new grid. That realization is what led to the Duke Energy microgrid test bed, created with the help of an intriguingly named ‘Coalition of the Willing.’ The impetus for the project goes back to a few years ago, when the utility saw the explosive growth in distributed energy resources — especially in Hawaii and California.

      BGE Plans Public Purpose Microgrids Across Central Maryland

      Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE) has launched a plan to build public purpose microgrids across central Maryland, starting in Howard County and Baltimore.  The Exelon subsidiary proposed the microgrids late last week in a filing before the Maryland Public Service Commission. The first two microgrids will supply 2-3 MW and are expected to cost $3.5 million per MW.

      New York Microgrid Demonstration Project Uses Low-Cost Storage

      A New York microgrid demonstration project will use an energy storage system from Eos Energy that the company describes as the lowest-cost battery storage on the market. The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority awarded Eos Energy $750,000 to support production, installation and demonstration of the 250 kW, 1000 kWh battery energy storage system that will be used in Wappingers Falls microgrid.

      Eaton Adds Name to Growing List Offering Microgrid Controllers

      Eaton became the latest in a growing list of companies offering microgrid controllers, the software smarts that by many definitions make a microgrid a microgrid. The Pittsburgh-based power management company this week unveiled its new microgrid energy system, which it says simplifies development of complex microgrid and energy storage systems.  Eaton calls its new controller the Power Xpert Energy Optimizer.

    5. Aggregated Energy Storage Has Arrived

      Aggregated Energy Storage Has Arrived

      Earlier this month, energy storage developer Stem aggregated a fleet of behind-the-meter (BTM) energy storage systems and successfully bid into the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) real-time energy market as participants in PG&E’s new supply-side pilot. This accomplishment marks the first-ever occurrence of aggregated, customer-sited storage participating in California’s real-time energy market, marking a major milestone in the evolution of distributed energy resources (DERs) and their role in the electricity grid of the future.
