Vivint yesterday said it plans to offer LG Chem RESU batteries to its solar customers across the U.S. this year. The company launched the energy storage offering this week for its customers in California. [...]
Clean energy advocates rejoiced as legislation was passed today in New Jersey that will support the development of a massive amount of renewable energy, specifically community solar, energy storage, offshore wind and energy efficiency. The bill also props up nuclear power in the state with the establishment of zero-emission certificates. [...]
In the 2019 FY Budget, the office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) included a $90M request to fund a new initiative it calls “Beyond Batteries.” The initiative is part of the DOE Grid Modernization Initiative, and focuses on new approaches to energy storage, which could include hybrid technologies such as pairing hydropower with solar or wind energy in order to provide a stable, dispatchable energy supply. [...]
Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary NV Energy is planning to invest $2 billion on solar power from six new projects in Nevada representing 1 GW of capacity. [...]

The position of Solar PV & Storage Intern will report to the Executive Vice President and will gather all critical project variables (solar, energy storage, financial, and development input) to size, design, and model solar, storage, and solar + storage project opportunities. T [...]
In this episode, Ron DiFelice of Energy Intelligence Partners puts the challenges and opportunities of entering the energy storage market into perspective for businesses interested in everything from energy markets to big solar plus storage pairings. [...]
When a California battery company officially moved its headquarters and manufacturing to Kentucky coal country last week, generous state tax subsidies certainly played a role — but so did something often lost in the debate about coal. [...]
In this episode, representatives of Blue Planet Energy discuss their work in Puerto Rico helping communities deliver on the value of energy storage and solar power through training and education. [...]
Cooking based on solar powered batteries is the next frontier for renewable energy. Consider this: If India’s 275 million households and restaurants, street vendors, and tea-sellers were to use solar plus battery based cooking, the demand for batteries would amount to ~1,000 GWh. [...]
The University of Hawai'i Maui College says it will be capable of generating 100 percent of its energy from on-site solar PV systems coupled with battery storage next year. The effort is part of a goal for the 10-campus UH system to be net-zero by 2035. [...]
On Tuesday March 26, Lockheed Martin and Cypress Creek Renewables announced that they commissioned 12 MWh of Lockheed Martin’s GridStar lithium energy storage systems for 12 solar-plus-storage projects.
The solar-plus-storage system will provide clean electricity to communities served by Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) in southeastern North Carolina.
A 50-year old company has a solution to provide clean drinking water and power for regions that were hard-hit by the hurricanes last fall. Aldelano Solar Cold Chain solutions is providing off-grid refrigeration, water generation and power generation equipment to Antiqua, Barbuda and the British Virgin Islands.
Please join us on this week’s Energy Show for Jeff Brown's candid insights into the factors that are reducing the benefits of rooftop solar — which then are leading to the next phase (spoiler alert: energy storage) of the rooftop solar industry. [...]
There is no doubt in my mind that energy storage systems will be as ubiquitous as solar — in all market segments. Utility companies are installing these systems to balance their intermittent demand and generation of electricity. [...]
U.K. renewable energy company Anesco this week said that its solar+storage projects are the first sites in the U.K. to qualify for support paid to accredited renewable energy generators for electricity generation supplied to batteries. [...]
Renewable Energy World recently reported on a potential solar software update that was called “game changing” for energy storage. Now that update is here. [...]
Twenty years ago, the problem with rooftop solar was that customers needed a large collection of lead acid batteries to store their daytime energy and use this energy at night. But simple net metering rules made it possible for the electric grid to function as a 100 percent efficient storage device. [...]
Today’s topics an update on the growth of the global solar market, the future of energy storage and how utilities learned from and prepared for the solar eclipse. Plus an update on the trade case. [...]
Concentrating solar power (CSP) has existed since 1866, but for the last couple of decades, photovoltaic (PV) has been the dominant solar technology. Now with technological advancements and energy storage, CSP is poised to make a significant comeback. [...]
Without proper planning now, it is likely that interconnection issues could emerge as a “significant blockade” to the success of energy storage programs in the U.S., much like the industry has seen with newly launched solar programs, according to a report released this week by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC). [...]
The ability to store energy promises to revolutionize the way we generate, transmit and use electricity - making renewable sources such as wind and solar cheaper and more dependable. Massachusetts is one of just three states requiring electric utilities to build battery facilities in the future. [...]
On Tuesday during Power Generation Week, Troy Miller of S&C Electric and Don Harrod of the Village of Minster accepted the Renewable Energy Project of the Year on behalf of Half Moon Ventures, developer of the project.
The Village of Minster Energy Storage Project in Minster, Ohio is a 7-MW, 3-MWh energy storage system is co-located with a 4.2-MW solar PV plant and is capable of providing multiple revenue streams (that flow to multiple parties) by integrating frequency-regulation services, t [...]
E.ON North America on Oct. 31 announced it had broken ground and begun construction of Iron Horse, a 10-MW/2.5-MWh energy storage facility being built for Tucson Electric Power. [...]
By the summer of 2017, solar homeowners could store surplus daytime solar in an ice-based energy storage unit with a 20-year life, for less than half the cost of a battery storing the same solar kilowatt-hours, according to Ice Energy CEO Mike Hopkins. [...]
