A Tiny Island Off Singapore May Hold Keys to Energy's Future
26 May 2017 at 4:00am

On a small island off the southern coast of Singapore, a French energy company is experimenting with what it hopes will be the future of renewable power storage.

Engie SA is helping build a small, self-contained power grid on Semakau Island to demonstrate the usefulness of hydrogen gas in converting intermittent power from solar panels and wind turbines into stored fuel that can generate electricity days or even months later, when the need is higher.

Arizona Utility Buys Solar Power at ?Historically Low Price?
25 May 2017 at 1:49pm

Arizona utility Tucson Electric Power (TEP) said this week that it will buy solar energy at a historically low price from a new local system large enough to power 21,000 homes.

Cracking the PPA: Renewable Energy Projects and Energy Storage
25 May 2017 at 11:30am

Colocating energy storage with renewable generation resources seems like a natural partnership to reduce the intermittency of renewable generators. Several projects have been built across the country combining storage with wind or solar projects. While the co-location of such facilities can yield many benefits, there are a number of legal and practical issues that need to be considered when deciding to acquire and co-locate storage facilities (particularly battery projects) with existing or new renewable generation.

The global energy storage industry will expand rapidly in the next few years, as it moves to support solar and other infrastructure that is growing more and more complex.

Move Over Tesla, Europe's Building Its Own Battery Gigafactories
24 May 2017 at 8:21am

Battery-making gigafactories are about to arrive in Europe, challenging a lead Tesla Inc. is building at a plant in Nevada and opening the way for a quicker shift toward green power for both cars and utilities.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday is scheduled to break ground at a 500 million-euro ($543 million) plant to assemble lithium-ion energy-storage units for Daimler AG, which produces Mercedes-Benz and Maybach luxury cars.


Mercedes-Benz Energy and Vivint Solar team up to bring automotive battery inn...
23 May 2017 at 4:00pm

The two companies will introduce a joint offering that will provide customers with the German engineering and performance of Mercedes-Benz batteries coupled with Vivint Solar's expertise in designing, installing and servicing solar energy systems.

Listen Up: What Home Owners Need To Know About Battery Storage Systems
22 May 2017 at 7:53am

Since the sun does not shine at night we need a way to store daytime-generated solar energy. Net metering is an elegant and 100% efficient way to shift excess solar power, but that system will not work at high solar penetration levels. Never mind the fact that utilities are loath to allow their customers to generate electricity for less than it costs them to deliver this power. 

As a result, battery storage is on the minds of almost all new solar customers. Storage technology, incentives, favorable electric rates and control software are all evolving rapidly. There are currently about a dozen companies with battery storage systems designed for use with rooftop solar. Like peanut butter and chocolate, many solar companies are starting to offer battery storage systems along with their solar systems.

My advice is to proceed with caution. Even though off-grid battery storage systems have been available for years, we are at the very early stages of grid-tied solar combined with battery storage. From a hardware standpoint, battery storage costs are plummeting, and new inverters/charge controllers are being developed. Perhaps more importantly, software that will efficiently interact with solar, batteries, the grid and your home energy consumption still has limited functionality. For more about the practicalities of home battery storage, Listen Up to this week?s Energy Show on Renewable Energy World.

16 May 2017 at 11:23am

Australian consulting firm SMEC has been selected to assist in performing feasibility studies for 2,000 MW expansion of the Snow Mountains pumped storage project.

EU Association to Help Assess Value of Energy Storage for Transmission System
16 May 2017 at 10:22am

Two new studies, to be performed by the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE), will help define the current status of activities that link renewable energy to zero-emission electricity transportation, with a focus on energy storage and grid management solutions.


How Smart Contracts [Could] Simplify Clean Energy Distribution
15 May 2017 at 12:19pm

On Tuesday May 9, Rocky Mountain Institute announced that ten energy companies from nine nations, including Sempra and Royal Dutch Shell, had joined the Energy Web Foundation (EWF), a nonprofit comprising of Rocky Mountain Institute and Grid Singularity, with a mission to accelerate the commercial deployment of blockchain technology in the energy sector. The foundation also announced $2.5 million in funding.

This is big news. Why? Because if the vision of what blockchain can do comes true, it could eliminate a lot of the complexities around managing distributed energy resources. And the fact that major energy companies are allocating resources to understand it is evidence that blockchain is worth paying attention to.

The Storage Scoop-up Continues: Wärtsilä Acquires Greensmith Energy Managem...
15 May 2017 at 7:24am

As the storage industry matures, larger companies are starting to purchase some of the original start-ups. Earlier this year, Enel Green Power scooped up Demand Energy and Ormat purchased Viridity and in 2016, GE Ventures bought a stake in Sonnen.

This week news that Finland-based Wärtsilä agreed to acquire the California-based start-up Greensmith Energy Management Systems is another sign of the energy storage sector?s promise for the future.

Installing Solar to Combat National Security Risks in the Power Grid
15 May 2017 at 7:08am

Vulnerabilities in the power grid are one of the most prevalent national security threats. The technical community has called for building up the resiliency of the grid using distributed energy and microgrids for stabilization.
