      Ice Energy and NRG to Deliver 25.6MW of Cooling Storage for California Utility

      More than a tenth of a 250MW energy storage procurement by utility Southern California Edison will comprise of Ice Energy’s Ice Bear units, deployed in partnership with NRG Energy. Southern California Edison’s (SCE) choice to procure the energy storage was made in 2014, described at the time by California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) executive director Janice Lin as a “monumental decision”. The procurement was awarded to five companies, AES Energy Storage (100MW), Stem (85MW), Advanced Microgrid Solutions (50MW), Ice Energy Holdings (25MW) and NRG (0.5MW).

      Mitsubishi, Eneco Work Together on 50MWh Energy Storage Project in Germany

      The latest project to be dubbed “Europe’s largest battery” will be a 50MWh project from Dutch energy supplier Eneco and Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi Corporation in Jardelund, Germany. Perhaps more notable than just the size will be the significant role of the battery-based energy storage system in the Schleswig-Holstein region where Jardelund is, close to the Danish border. It will provide frequency regulation to the grid and be used to replace baseload electricity supplied traditionally by coal and gas power plants.

      China’s deployment of energy storage looks set to continue an upward trajectory, with almost 600MW in the pipeline as of the third quarter this year. According to figures released by the China Energy Storage Alliance (CNESA), 14 new projects were announced in Q3 2016 totalling 587MW. This includes projects that are in planning stages, under construction and that have gone online in the quarter. This appears to represent a significant boost to the sector, and is a vast 586% increase on the same period of last year. Up until the beginning of the quarter, CNESA found, 170.6MW of energy storage was in operation in the country.

      Transforming the Market for Virtual Power Plants with Advances in Energy Storage

      The evolution of energy markets is accelerating in the direction of a greater reliance upon distributed energy resources (DER), whether those resources generate, consume, or store electricity. One strategy to address this trend is a virtual power plant (VPP), the concept that the intelligent aggregation and optimisation of DER can provide the same essential services as a traditional 24/7 centralised power plant. As a result of the wide divergence of what constitutes a VPP, Navigant Research has come up with its own definition, which has generally been validated by market participants: “A VPP is a system that relies upon software and a smart grid to remotely and automatically dispatch retail DER services to a distribution or wholesale market via an aggregation and optimisation platform.”
