    1. Renewable Energy Barriers Fall With New FERC Order

      Renewable Energy Barriers Fall With New FERC Order

      Energy storage fans are rejoicing all across the country on the heels of a new ruling by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which opens the floodgates to connecting more solar arrays and wind farms to the power grid. FERC adopted the new ruling, Order 792, in order to bring its existing rules for small generators up to speed with new developments in the energy storage field.

      Copper Foam Batteries — Increased Energy Storage, Faster Charge Times, & Decreased Production Costs

      Copper foam batteries — a new, cheaper-to-manufacture, faster-to-charge, and longer-lasting alternative to the batteries in common use today — may soon be headed to the commercial market as a result of the efforts of a new startup created by researchers at Colorado State University. The first prototype will be finished within the year, according to the researchers, with third-party testing following after that.

    3. At What Point Will Small-Scale (residential) Solar Energy Storage Become Viable?

      At What Point Will Small-Scale (residential) Solar Energy Storage Become Viable?

      If the dance between the winding back of government and utility incentives for small-scale solar power and the falling price point of energy storage continues without a stumble in the US, Europe, and countries elsewhere, the country will see energy storage smoothly coming in to pick up where feed-in tariffs and 1-for-1 net metering leave off.

    4. Europe’s Largest Energy Storage Trial Launched

      Europe’s Largest Energy Storage Trial Launched

      The commercial future of energy storage was recently invigorated with the launch of Europe’s largest intelligent network storage project by S&C Electric Europe, Samsung SDI, and Younicos, onto a UK Power Networks substation. The $28.6 million project will store as much as 10 megawatt-hours of power, and save over £6 million ($9.6 million) on traditional network reinforcement methods.

      NZ Network Offers Solar Storage Lease Trial

      A New Zealand electricity network operator, Vector, is offering a trial run of leases to its customers to install rooftop solar and battery storage for around the same cost as relying entirely on the grid. Given that New Zealand’s retail electricity prices are around the same as Australia’s – 25c/kWh in the local currency – it is a striking offer.
