A five-year long project to trial the use of energy storage at community-scale in a Western Australian suburb achieved an 85% reduction in consumption of energy from the grid at peak times for participating households.
Recognising the importance of energy storage for decarbonising and securing Australia’s energy system in the coming years, the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) has published two new sets of market rules.
There are several potential benefits to pairing electricity generation with energy storage, but US network operators still have some way to go to best accommodate the fast-growing interest in so-called ‘hybrid resources’.
Gatekeepers of the electric grid – and electricity markets – in the US discuss the primary challenges facing energy storage and reveal what their organisations are doing to unlock the true value of batteries and other storage.
The US’ Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has blocked a request to delay implementation of new market participation rules for energy storage made by the Mid-Continent Independent System Operator (MISO).
What are the best ways to match up long-duration energy storage technologies to applications and revenues? And what is ‘longer-duration’ storage and when will we need it? Florian Mayr and Dr Fabio Oldenburg at Apricum – The Cleantech Advisory offer some perspectives.
The Australian Energy Market Commission has drafted a new rule to enable the provision of fast frequency response services to help keep the electricity grid stable which one expert said will be “a really important market for batteries”.
While interconnection queues for America’s electric transmission and distribution operators are “swelling up” with growing numbers of energy storage projects, some of the big challenges ahead include enabling fair market participation for both standalone storage and storage paired with generation.
