      Study: Batteries and Clean Energy will Outcompete Fossil Fuels by 2020

      Energy storage prices are falling rapidly, allowing new combinations of solar, wind, and energy storage to “outcompete” the costs of coal and natural gas plants, according to a new study. Research and development investment for energy storage projects have brought the cost of a lithium-ion battery down from $10,000 per kilowatt-hour in the early 1990s to an expected $100 per kilowatt-hour in 2018, the researchers said. Residential solar and electric battery storage could become cost-competitive with grid electricity by 2020, they added.

      How A New Project In Washington State Could Show Off The Latest In Battery Technology

      Thanks to a $14.3 million grant from Washington State, a new three-part project could herald the crucial role of effective batteries in modern, smart, renewable energy grids. The goal of the project is to push forward the use of batteries on electrical grids, especially those of the smart variety. Smart grids use modern communication technology to better monitor and direct demand and flow of electricity on a grid, thus reducing peak demand and smoothing out the load. Along with storing up the energy generated by solar and wind power when it’s generated, and then releasing it when needed, battery technology also plays a crucial part in managing those functions.

      Former EPA Administrator and Obama Aid presents US-India Energy Initiatives

      Advocates of U.S.-India trade have been increasingly active in recent years, and there is enormous opportunity for a fruitful partnership between the two nations in the areas of energy and environmental technology.  The U.S.-India Business Council and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) recently committed themselves to the goal of achieving $500 billion in two–way trade by 2020, up from $100 billion today (and up from just $25 billion in 2006).
