      New York utility Con Edison signs deal for 100MW battery project at former fossil fuel plant site

      An agreement has been signed for a 100MW / 400MWh battery storage project in Queens, New York, by utility company Con Edison and Hanwha Group-affiliated renewable energy developer 174 Power Global. The project will be one of the world’s larger battery storage projects to date and the US state’s largest so far by some distance - currently the only transmission-connected battery project in New York is the 20MW KCE NY 1 project completed by developer Key Capture Energy a while back, although many more multi-megawatt projects are thought to be on the way albeit outside of New York's densely populated urban areas.

      California will need up to 55GW of long-duration energy storage by 2045, study finds

      For California to achieve its target of eliminating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its electricity sector by 2045, the state will need to deploy between 45GW and 55GW of long-duration energy storage, a new study has found. Meeting an interim goal of sourcing 60% of California’s electricity from renewables by 2030 will itself require between 2GW to 11GW of long-duration energy storage, consultancy group Strategen said in the study, which was commissioned by the California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA).

      Guidehouse: China’s demand for utility-scale storage will see Asia-Pacific overtake North America

      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.
