      PG&E Proposes Four New Cost-effective Energy Storage Projects to CPUC

      Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today requested approval of four cost-effective energy storage projects totaling approximately 567 megawatts (MW), in a filing at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). In January, the CPUC authorized PG&E to launch an accelerated solicitation for energy storage projects capable of meeting reliability needs for three specified local sub-areas in the northern central valley (Pease local sub-area and Bogue local sub-area) and spanning Silicon Valley to the central coast (South Bay - Moss Landing local sub-area). PG&E issued its request for offers on February 28 and received offers from numerous participants. After careful evaluation, PG&E selected one offer for a utility-owned project and three offers for third-party owned projects, all to be located within the South Bay - Moss Landing local sub-area.

      U.S. Marine Corps, Constellation, P&G Collaborate to Achieve Navy’s First ‘Net Zero’ Energy Military Base

      Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) has awarded a $170 million, 23-year energy savings performance contract to Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation, for an energy conservation and distributed generation project that will enable the Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) in Albany, Ga., to reduce energy use, increase energy security, and meet energy demands from renewable sources. The project includes the installation of an 8.5-megawatt biomass-fueled, steam-to-electricity (STE) generator, high-efficiency transformers, lighting and boiler upgrades, as well as system controls for a landfill gas electricity generator and centralized monitoring and operation of electricity generation and distribution for the base.

    3. AREVA and Schneider Electric Sign an R&D Cooperation Agreement in Energy Storage

      AREVA and Schneider Electric Sign an R&D Cooperation Agreement in Energy Storage

      AREVA and Schneider Electric have signed an R&D agreement to develop a new energy storage solution, called the flow battery in order to produce and store electricity by combining hydrobromic acid and hydrogen. Funded by the European Union*, the project aims to optimize the existing 50 kW flow battery prototype designed by EnStorage to a 150 kW demonstration module. Under the cooperation agreement, both companies will test the flow battery technology under real conditions. The aim is to deliver a competitive and highly efficient solution for the integration of renewable energies. AREVA will lead the project, manufacturing, integrating and installing the storage solution while Schneider Electric will design, manufacture and install the complementary power conversion system.
