      LADWP Selects Doosan GridTech™ And KTY Engineering To Deliver Its First 20 MW/10 MWh Energy Storage System

      Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has selected Doosan GridTech and its partner, KTY Engineering, to deliver LADWP’s first battery energy storage system (BESS) with a capacity of 20 MW at its Beacon Solar Plant in Kern County, California. The Beacon Solar Plant was selected as the site for the BESS due to the its high concentration of solar photovoltaic arrays. The BESS will provide multiple, coordinated functions to LADWP that will help efficiently integrate these solar resources into the grid, minimize LADWP’s use of gas‐fired generating units for compliance with the NERC – BAL 003-1 requirements, and assist with the short-term mitigation of the Aliso Canyon natural gas curtailment.

      The Future of Energy: Catherine Von Burg of SimpliPhi Power Discusses the Role of Energy Storage

      The energy industry is in the midst of a dramatic transformation as it reevaluates and reconfigures the way that it generates, stores, and distributes electricity. Energy demand worldwide increases by 2% each year as our global culture becomes more energy-dependent. Meanwhile mounting concern over CO2 emissions, fossil fuel usage, and sustainability have made necessary new technologies and renewable energy sources. This movement is shifting energy policies, business models, and distribution structures.

    3. Energy Storage Inertia

      Energy Storage Inertia

      The energy storage industry is currently poised, like one of Galileo’s spheres, ready to propel forward once released from outside influences. The potential is great. The US energy storage market was $111 million in 2013. It increased to $441 million in 2015 and is forecasted to grow to six times that in the next five years, according to GTM’s Energy Storage Monitor report. But in order to accomplish this projected expansion and gain momentum, experts feel that the industry needs to break free of restrictive forces.
