      Connecticut's United Illuminating Launches Storage Pilot Including Demand Response

      Ice Energy has installed two Ice Bears for Connecticut's United Illuminating Co. (UI) as a pilot project through the Energize Connecticut initiative to demonstrate the potential of the Ice Bear to reduce peak electric demand. The Ice Bears were installed at two commercial businesses located in Orange, Connecticut. Each Ice Bear unit was configured to provide both thermal energy storage and demand response. As a result, at each site, some of the air conditioning load is permanently shifted from peak to off peak using the thermal energy storage and some of it is subject to curtailment in an emergency using the demand response.

      China Company Commissions Grid Storage

      A123 Energy Solutions has announced the commissioning of a 500-kilowatt Grid Storage Solution (GSS™) for Dongfang Electric Machinery Co., Ltd, one of the largest manufacturers of power generating equipment in China. The 500 kW, 125 kWh GSS is connected to the microgrid at Dongfang Electric Machinery Co’s Hangzhou facility and will be performing renewable integration for the site, where it is co-located with wind, PV, and conventional generation resources. This energy storage installation, A123 Energy’s second deployment in China, is a High Rate (HR) GSS and is not containerized, but instead is housed in one of the site’s existing buildings.

    5. The Integrated Grid: Central and Distributed Energy Resources

      The Integrated Grid: Central and Distributed Energy Resources

      The electric power system has evolved through large, central power plants interconnected via grids of transmission lines and distribution networks that feed power to customers. The system is beginning to change – rapidly in some areas – with the rise of distributed energy resources (DER) such as small natural gas-fueled generators, combined heat and power plants, electricity storage, and solar photovoltaics (PV) on rooftops and in larger arrays connected to the distribution system. In many settings DER already have an impact on the operation of the electric power grid. Through a combination of technological improvements, policy incentives, and consumer choices in technology and service, the role of DER is likely to become more important in the future.

      Wisconsin’s First Stand-Alone Utility-Scale Solar Energy Project Breaks Ground

      Half Moon Ventures has announced the groundbreaking on Wisconsin’s first stand-alone utility scale solar energy project in the city of Jefferson, Wisconsin. HMV awarded S&C Electric Co. with the EPC contract to construct the project, which is expected to enter into service by the end of the year. The solar energy facility will be the state’s first solar energy project that directly connects to the power grid, and it will help meet Wisconsin’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) goal of 10 percent of power coming from renewable sources by 2015.

      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.
