      Study: Even At Current Prices, Energy Storage Makes Economic Sense For Many Renewables Projects

      Even at current market prices, various different energy storage options make economic sense for renewable energy projects in some locations, according to new research from MIT. The energy storage options profiled by the study included: battery systems, pumped hydroelectric storage, and compressed air energy storage, amongst others. While these options are economically a good choice in some locations, in other locations, they are not.

    6. 1.3 GW Of New Energy Storage = White House Goal

      1.3 GW Of New Energy Storage = White House Goal

      The White House recently announced that a number of federal actions and commitments from the private sector could result in 1.3 GW of new energy storage installations or procurements over the next five years. It also said that — with all the potential procurements, deployments, and private sector activity — it could be possible the total value reached might be $1 billion in energy storage investments. If the White House’s vision is achieved and 1.3 GW is added to current energy storage capacity in the US, there will have been quite a surge in the rate of installations. In the first quarter of 2016, about 18.3 MW was installed, so if that amount remains steady for each quarter, the annual total will be around 72 MW. The White House’s target, if achieved, would mean about 260 MW would be installed each year for 5 years, in addition to the amount from the other sources.

    12. Investment In Energy Storage Vital For Renewable Energy Success

      Investment In Energy Storage Vital For Renewable Energy Success

      A new report has concluded that investment in energy storage technology is vital for the success of renewable energy and its full integration into the energy sector. According to a new study published by researchers from the University of East Anglia (UAE), government subsidies should be used so as to encourage further investment in energy storage, without which the authors of the report believe renewable energy will struggle to be fully integrated into the energy sector. The inherent variable nature of leading renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar requires energy storage so as to compensate for times when the wind may not be blowing, or the sun may not be shining. Energy storage systems such as reversed hydro power plants, large scale compressed air systems, and battery storage, are quickly being seen to be a vital companion to most, if not all, renewable energy technology installations.

      Energy Storage Could Break Low Income Rooftop Solar Bottleneck

      A trio of non-profits has come out with a report that makes a strong case for deploying energy storage plus on-site solar for low-income rental housing in California. The analysis projects that under today’s market conditions, the combo has a quick payback and would whittle electricity bills down to practically nothing. To be clear, the analysis covers the electricity bills of the housing owner, not the tenants. Providing low income renters with the benefits of solar energy storage is a whole other can of worms, but the non-profits do have some suggestions on that score.
