      Alstom To Build Israeli Hydro Storage Power Plant

      Alstom announced on Thursday that it had signed two separate contracts to supply two pump-turbines for the 300 MW Gilboa pumped storage power plant in Israel. The company will provide two 150 MW pump-turbines “with the associated balance of plant equipment” as well as Alstom’s Distributed Control System, alongside an 18 year operation & maintenance agreement. The power station will be located 60 kilometres east of Haifa, and is expected to be commissioned in 2018. Upon completion, the power plant will increase the country’s installed power generating capacity by 2.5%.

    2. DoE Energy Storage Report Praised By ESA

      DoE Energy Storage Report Praised By ESA

      The US Department of Energy has released their Grid Energy Storage report to the members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, identifying the benefits of grid energy storage, the challenges to be addressed, and the current efforts being made to meet those selfsame challenges. In response, the Electricity Storage Association has publicly praised the report, “nothing that it affirms that wide-scale deployment of storage technologies in the U.S. and around the world is critical to maintaining a resilient, cost-effective electric grid.”

      All-in-One Container-Type Energy Storage System From Hitachi Unveiled

      Hitachi, a large, Tokyo-based global electronics company, has unveiled an energy storage system aimed at complementing solar and wind power developments — “CrystEna” (Crystal+Energy). CrystEna incorporates a wide range of electricity grid technologies from Hitachi. It isn’t yet ready for the commercial market, however. Plans are to implement a demonstration project in the United States to evaluate its commercial competitiveness.

      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.

    7. 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.

      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.
