      Energy Department Expands Goals for Solar Power Initiative

      A Department of Energy effort to lower the cost of solar power has hit a key goal thee years early, officials said Tuesday. The agency is also set to expand the goals of its SunShot Initiative and pump new funding into reducing costs and expanding energy storage, the department announced.The price of electricity generated by utility-scale solar photovoltaic systems fell to $0.06 per kilowatt hour this year, achieving a 2020 goal of the SunShot program three years early. Prices for residential and commercial systems are 86 percent and 89 percent toward achieving their price goals, the Energy Department reported.

    2. Distributed Storage Will Enable More Efficient, More Secure Energy Infrastructure

      Distributed Storage Will Enable More Efficient, More Secure Energy Infrastructure

      Energy and its ubiquitous supply are taken for granted in our lives today. A spontaneous loss of power at grid level, instigated by manmade or natural disaster, would cause failures and chaos on a massive scale. We propose the establishment of a revitalized energy infrastructure predicated on a robust network of distributed energy storage devices that can provide the necessary backup and instantaneous readiness to fill any void in grid supply.
