Utilities are turning to energy storage systems (ESS) to help power grids withstand the effects of high peak demands, instability and the unpredictability of energy that can be gone with the wind.
There is no denying to the fact that initiatives are good, but they have been happening in smaller fragments and over large intervals of time. Therefore, it calls for more investment into research and development into the fuel cell sector.
SGIP stands for Self Generation Incentive Program, a way to motivate consumers to use alternative energy sources to generate and store their own electricity. The SGIP pays energy storage users over a dollar per watt.

Because weather conditions-precipitation, wind and sun in particular-can have a major impact on both production and demand for any renewable energy producer, Statkraft pays unusually close attention to historical and predictive weather data.
As battery storage solutions advance and become more available, our reliance on fossil fuels will decrease and grid reliability will increase, putting us on the right track to a sustainable future.
Battery energy storage systems (ESSs) are becoming well established to help the grid integration of solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy, particularly in remote and island communities. It is important to understand the different roles that energy storage can play, including controlling ramp rates, smoothing, shaping, peak shaving and frequency regulation.
Smart Homes, Robotics, Automation, Unmanned Vehicles, Solar and Wind Energy. Regardless of where you work or what you do, these topics are affecting your life and will continue to do so in the future.
Using battery systems for peak shaving is highly beneficial; enabling a constant load on the engine ultimately leads to high efficiency and energy saving at the engine level.
As the business case becomes more apparent - with fuel cells delivering both economic and environmental value - the list of corporate customers continues to grow.
Here are three key software driven technology majors who are outsiders in the utility industry but are still driving big innovations in the Smart Grid area
The Hydrogen Station Equipment Performance device, or HyStEP, could reduce the time to commission new stations from months to just one week.
We'll soon start to see a hybrid energy-storage solution of batteries and ultracapacitors to address multiple applications simultaneously, like e-turbo, active suspension, regeneration, power steering, electric brake boosters and more.
Locational Capacity will be the dominant application in 2016. In other words, battery systems targeted at the grid's most congested load centers will be first and foremost used to provide four hours of peak shaving capability, and other grid balancing services when available.

Off-grid or on-grid, system designers and installers now have a comprehensive power conversion and storage solution from the name they trust: OutBack. Engineered from the ground up, OutBack's preassembled systems make balance-of-system components easier to specify and install in any residential or commercial installation. The Radian packs over 8,000 Watts of pure sine-wave continuous power and can be stacked into an 80 kW configuration for larger applications. The Integrated Battery Rack (IBR) is a 28.8 kWh one-box solution with all electrical connections made at the factory and shipped fully-assembled (without batteries) for quick connection on the jobsite.
