      Warren Buffet’s Nevada Utility NV Energy to Consider Energy Storage in 330MW Renewables Push

      NV Energy, the main electric utility for the US state of Nevada, has tendered for more than 300MW of renewable energy in a Request for Proposals that also includes consideration of battery energy storage paired with renewables. Our sister site PV Tech reported mid-2017 that the utility exceeded Nevada’s state mandated target of 20% renewable energy in its generation mix during 2016 for the seventh year in a row. As of last March, NV had 8,726MW of owned and contracted generation capacity, of which 1,708MW is classified as “renewable and non-carbon generation capacity”.  NV yesterday issued the RfP for solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and biogas resources to add up to 330MW of new renewable energy projects. For the first time ever in one of its solicitations, NV also said that it will “consider adding supplemental battery energy storage systems that are integrated with the proposed renewable energy resource”. Proposals will be assessed for the value they provide to NV’s customers and in benefits conferred to the state of Nevada, as well as other factors.
