      Canada Warms to Energy Storage

      To provide both peak-shaving functionality at Golden and backup power to Field, BC Hydro ... (weighed) the cost of diesel generation at both sites. Although the cleaner battery option was preferred, diesel generation was significantly cheaper. It was only with a matching funds award from the Canadian government’s Clean Energy Fund that a business case could be made for battery storage. BC Hydro BC Hydro tackles the challenges of building battery energy storage in remote mountainous terrain. read more

    6. Schneider Buys Weather Forecaster: When to Charge & Drain Storage

      Schneider Buys Weather Forecaster: When to Charge & Drain Storage
      [weather forecasting could] estimate generation by distributed resources such as solar and wind. They're dependent on the weather also. Throw in some distributed storage. You’d know when to charge it and when to drain it to minimize cost and/or maximize efficiency. No wonder Schneider Electric has acquired Telvent … which offers global precision weather forecasting.
