      Public Service Company of New Mexico Selects Enbala Power Networks to Manage Peak Saver Program

      Enbala Power Networks has been selected by Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) to administer the utility’s Peak Saver demand response program beginning in 2018, pending New Mexico Public Regulatory Commission approval. As the state’s largest electricity provider, PNM services more than 500,000 residential and business customers. It has a well-established base of demand response (DR) resources that the company has used since 2008, and its Peak Saver load management program is one of the two key components. Designed to help large commercial and industrial (C&I) customers reduce the amount of energy they require during peak demand periods, the Peak Saver program is dispatched during the hottest days of the year, and participants are paid an annual incentive based on the amount of peak demand managed by the program.

      Sustainable Innovations Verifies Harvard Experiment for Powerful Flow Battery

      An acclaimed battery design for large-scale energy storage has cleared an important hurdle: Independent tests now confirm that it holds promise as a technology that one day could store power for homes, businesses, neighborhoods and ultimately the electric grid. In January 2014, a team of researchers from Harvard University announced the discovery of an inexpensive, high-density battery design for economical grid energy storage. The research, published in Nature (1), details a battery based around an organic molecule called a quinone. Such a battery presents a radical departure for an energy marketplace seeking viable ways to store large-scale solar energy when the sun is not shining and wind energy when the wind is not blowing.
