      India’s ‘first grid-connected community energy storage system’ inaugurated in Delhi

      A lithium-ion battery energy storage system that has been switched on in Rani Bagh, Delhi, will serve multiple applications and could pave the way for adoption of smarter energy networks based on renewable energy across India. The battery system is relatively small by the standards of some of the grid-scale systems that are starting to be deployed worldwide, but nonetheless provides valuable services to the local electricity grid and community. Described as India’s first grid-connected community energy storage system, it could also help prove the case for wider rollout of similar solutions across India, the companies behind the project have said.

      US Secretary of Energy: ‘Flow batteries are good for grid storage’

      US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said yesterday that flow batteries are “good for grid storage” as her Department of Energy (DoE) announced funding to support domestic manufacturing for the energy storage technology. The US DoE is setting up a competitive award process for flow battery system research and development (R&D) projects with up to US$20 million of funding available. A funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the DoE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) said that award negotiations are expected to take place between October and December this year.

      IHS Markit predicts more than 10GW of global energy storage deployments in 2021

      Analysis and research firm IHS Markit has predicted that over 10GW of new energy storage will be deployed during this year, with around half of those additions in the US market. The company said in a new report that this would be more than double the 4.5GW of global capacity additions in 2020. Meanwhile the US’ strong lead will continue with the market gaining in share until 2023, when IHS Markit senior analyst for clean technology George Hilton said the pipeline in the country reduces.

      Investment tax credit for energy storage a ‘once in a generation opportunity towards saving planet’

      A politically bipartisan effort to introduce investment tax credit (ITC) incentives to support and accelerate the deployment of energy storage in the US could be a “once in a generation opportunity” to protect the future of the earth.

      Energy Storage Association Interim CEO Jason Burwen urged Congress to “follow the bipartisan example set today,” in passing the legislation, which he said would put energy storage on an equal footing with other clean energy technologies. ESA also pointed out in a statement sent to Energy-Storage.news that 60,000 people are already employed today in the US energy storage sector and Burwen said that the ITC could play a role in stimulating an economic recovery “with jobs that build a cleaner, more resilient future for all”.

      Texas blackouts and the role energy storage can play in a more resilient future

      "Diversification is the main principle in managing risk, and storage is the ultimate diversifier. You can put battery storage at any level of the grid—customer, distribution, transmission, or generation sited—and you can use different technologies at different levels as well—thermal storage in buildings, flow batteries in distribution, pumped hydro on transmission, and liquid air storage with generation. Additionally, EVs are energy storage on wheels and can become an enormous source of resilience for homes," Jason Burwen, Interim CEO of the national Energy Storage Association says.

      Leading by example: New York Power Authority, energy storage and a vision for the climate battle

      New York has some of the most aggressive clean energy policy goals in the world. Energy storage is expected to play a vital role, with the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo including a target of 3GW of storage deployment by 2030. New York Power Authority (NYPA), a public power organization which serves around a quarter of the US state’s electric load, said on the release of its strategic plan VISION2030 in December that it wants to lead by example with a commitment to cost-effective clean energy that could see NYPA reach emissions-free electricity by 2035.

      North America is currently leading the world for utility-scale energy storage deployments, but could be overtaken by the second-largest market, the Asia-Pacific region, as early as 2023, according to forecasting and analysis by Guidehouse Insights. The Asia-Pacific region by 2029 is expected to achieve a compound annual growth rate in energy storage installations of 39.4%, with a cumulative 60,747.4MW of new utility-scale capacity expected to be added between this year and then. In 2020, the region will add around 554MW of new large-scale storage.
