    1. Storage to 'Become Necessary' in the Next Five Years

      Storage to 'Become Necessary' in the Next Five Years

      The US and China will dominate the roll-out of storage capacity to 2024, as the sector is expected to grow 13-fold by 2024, according to the latest research by Wood Mackenzie Power and Renewables. Between 2013 and 2018, roughly 7GW/12GWh of energy storage was deployed globally, with a compound annual growth rate of 74%, according to WMPR. However roughly half of this total was installed last year alone, WMPR added, indicating the start of a rapid growth in demand for storage applications. Much of the outlook is centered in the US and China.

      Industry Slams US Coal and Nuclear Subsidy Plans

      The Department of Energy (DoE) wants to "purchase or arrange the purchase of electric energy or electric generation capacity" for two years and delay coal and nuclear plant retirements, according to a memo made public on 1 June. But a coalition of energy industry associations, including AWEA, condemned the proposals, claiming it would "hurt consumers". It is unclear whether the president had signed off on the DoE’s latest 40-page document, authorising the bail out of coal and nuclear plants.

      Vestas Confirms Tesla Joint Project

      Vestas said in March it was looking to increase its involvement in intergrating wind and storage solutions and has been working on a number of small-scale projects over recent years. Notably, it installed a battery system at its Lem Kjaer site in Denmark and also has hybrid wind-solar or wind-solar-storage projects in Greece and Kenya, respectively.

      Younicos to Supply Centrica with 49MW Battery Storage Plant

      The deal is part of Centrica's wider plans to build a series of flexible power facilities, having secured 15-year agreements for over 500MW of new capacity, mainly gas-fired. The battery storage plant, which will be built at Roosecote in the north-west of England, will provide energy in response to peaks in demand. Roosecote is a large site having originally been built for a coal-fired plant, which has been retired. A gas power plant at the site was demolished in 2015.

      NextEra Will Double Investment in Wind and Solar

      Nextera Energy signed contracts for 1.4GW of wind and 700MW of solar in 2015 and expects to bring roughly 2.5GW of new renewables online this year. Over the next few years, Nextera expects to as much as double the development resources committed to wind and solar projects, said senior vice-president for finance, John Ketchum. He was speaking at the release of the company’s fourth quarter results.

      US to Canada Wind Storage Transmission Line Plans Submitted

      The 500kV Great Northern Transmission Line would cross the Minnesota-Manitoba border carrying power from wind into Canada for storage through pumped hydro. Power will then be transported along the 350-kilometre route back into the US at times of high demand to an electric substation on the Mesabi Iron Range in the north of the country. Minnesota Power has submitted its plans to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission for approval and also applied for a presidential permit from the US Department of Energy.

    10. Goldwind Wins 70MW Deal for Wind-Solar-Storage Demo Project

      Goldwind Wins 70MW Deal for Wind-Solar-Storage Demo Project

      China Goldwind has won a 70MW deal for a state-level demonstration project integrating wind and solar power generation, storage and transmission. The contract is for 28 2.5MW wind turbines, including tower and foundation rings. Goldwind will be paid around CNY 400 million ($61 million) for the machines.  Jibei Electric Power, a local subsidiary of the State Grid Corporation, is developing the project, located in Zhangjiakou, about 200 kilometers to the north-west of the capital, Beijing. The whole plan is to build a power generation base comprising 500MW wind power installations, 100MW solar and 110MW storage on a 500-hectare site.
