    5. Europe's Largest Energy Storage Project Begins Construction

      Europe's Largest Energy Storage Project Begins Construction

      AES has begun construction of what will be the largest energy storage project in Europe when it comes online later this year in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. The 10-MW/40-MWh Kilroot Advancion Energy Storage Array is being added to the AES UK & Ireland Kilroot Power Station in County Antrim along the country’s east coast. The grid-connected lithium-ion storage facility, which will help balance supply and demand and support the island-wide grid via system operator SONI, is expected to begin operations by the end of 2015. It will also enable more efficient dispatch of existing generation and increase the ability to integrate renewable power sources.

      Exelon: The Utility of the Future Views Change as Enabling, Not Disruptive

      Integrating more variable generation and storage, but no new nuclear units, are among the characteristics Exelon sees in the utility of the future, as outlined by Chief Strategy Officer William A. Von Hoene Jr. at the MIT Energy Conference, held Feb. 27–28. He began his Saturday address by saying that innovation is “absolutely indispensible.” Von Hoene’s keynote address on “Building the Utility of the Future” echoed the company’s general attitude, as expressed by CEO Christopher M. Crane, that there is no disruptive technology—we must see them as enabling, Von Hoene said.

      Japan Mulling $800 Million Stimulus for Battery Storage and Efficiency

      The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) is considering a proposal for a stimulus package that would allocate ¥93 billion (about $779 million) to support installations of energy storage systems by industrial, commercial, and residential customers, as well as a variety of energy efficiency measures, according to a report in Bloomberg. The METI proposal, which is not yet final, would be included in a supplementary budget measure for the year ending March 31. The budget still needs to be approved by the Japanese parliament. The amount would dwarf the $300 million allocated for storage initiatives last year.

    8. The Year Energy Storage Hit Its Stride

      The Year Energy Storage Hit Its Stride

      “Just-in-time” delivery has become an ideal for many industries looking to optimize their efficiency and responsiveness. For the power sector, though, it’s been the business model for well over a century—and that’s the problem. The North American grid is the largest distribution system on earth, yet it’s one with virtually none of its product in reserve. For the most part, electricity needed by customers and the system must be produced at the moment it’s required. At the end of 2013, according to Energy Information Administration (EIA) and Department of Energy (DOE) data, the United States had about 1,200 GW of installed generating capacity and a miniscule 21.1 GW of grid-connected, utility-scale storage (counting projects larger than 1 MW).
