      Solving renewable energy challenges with the Internet of Things

      Since the 1940s, Steffes Corporation has grown from a small North Dakota manufacturing company to a global designer of energy solutions with more than 300 employees. Specializing in electric thermal storage (ETS) technologies, the company has built a reputation for creating extremely energy-efficient heating products. Historically, most of the focus in the energy industry has been on reducing energy consumption when market prices or demand is high to reduce costs and balance utility load. Such solutions are designed to solve an energy deficit. However, what happens when energy sources spike suddenly and produce more than the grid can handle?

      Grid-Interactive Water Heaters for Energy Storage

      The US electric grid system is composed of four primary components: (1) large central- ized power plants; (2) a backbone, high-voltage transmission network; (3) a “stepped down” subtransmission leg, and (4) distribution, the final leg that delivers electricity to end-users. The twentieth-century grid model was “Generation follows Load (or Demand)” and during most years in the latter half of the last century, generation resources were significantly overbuilt—first, in order to meet the unrelenting growth of electricity demand; and second, to meet the pinnacle of yearly peak demand (usually in the summer, and which often lasted only hours, not days or weeks).

      The U.S. energy storage market just had both its best quarter and best year of all time. According to the GTM Research/Energy Storage Association’s U.S. Energy Storage Monitor 2015 Year in Review, the U.S. deployed 112 megawatts of energy storage capacity in the fourth quarter of 2015, bringing the annual total to 221 megawatts. This represents 161 megawatt-hours for the year. The 112 megawatts deployed in the fourth quarter 2015 represented more than the total of all storage deployments in 2013 and 2014 combined. Propelled by that historic quarter, the U.S. energy storage market grew 243 percent over 2014’s 65 megawatts (86 megawatt-hours).

      Renewable energy allows American families and businesses to generate their own clean energy, and advances in energy storage will allow our nation to better harness this energy. However, one critical tax law may slow that process down. That is why U.S. Rep. Mike Honda (D-Silicon Valley, Calif.) was joined by a dozen of his colleagues, in a letter calling on Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to allow those storage innovations the same tax credit that is available for clean energy generation.
