    2. From Science Project to Money Maker: Energy Storage Hits Inflection Point

      From Science Project to Money Maker: Energy Storage Hits Inflection Point
      In 2014, the vast majority of storage projects Greensmith Energy was working on might have best been described as science projects, often dependent on grants or utility RD budgets devoted to figuring out emerging technologies. Today, potential projects are evaluated primarily on their business case. The reason most energy storage projects these days are driven by solid financial returns is because there are more and more ways to generate revenue ...

      The Long Read: The Dawn of Megastorage
      Last year was record-breaking for global energy storage deployment. The non-residential segment overtook the residential sector for the first time, with half of the 3.3 GW capacity installed in front of the meter, according to market analysts Wood Mackenzie. The drive toward large, utility-scale projects has been the single most noteworthy change for the industry over the last 12 to 18 months, with storage projects now exceeding 100 MW ...

      6 MW Wärtsilä Energy Storage System Demonstrates Phased Increase of Renewable Energy Penetration on the Island of Bonaire
      The technology group Wrtsil has commissioned its 6 MW / 6 MWh energy management and storage system project for its customer ContourGlobal Bonaire on the Caribbean island of Bonaire. With Phase One complete, the island no longer has to curtail wind resources. It has nearly doubled renewable energy penetration, and prepared the system for additional capacity to accommodate peak demand during tourist season. ContourGlobals entire island grid is managed and operated ...

      Gas Plant Makers Embrace Batteries with Hybrid Machines
      New offerings from turbine manufacturers are blurring the line in the debate about whether or not an energy storage facility can replace gas-fired peaking plants. Earlier this month, Wartsila signed a memorandum of understanding with Southern Co. to develop two flexible gas-fired power projects. The MOU coincides with Wartsilas acquisition of Greensmith Energy Management Systems. Wartsila said the acquisition would enable it to provide both stand-alone energy storage systems, as ...
