Phazr is a small battery pack that pairs with a single solar panel forming a highly scalable solar plus energy storage system.
Morgan Sherburne for U of Michigan News: An issue that has long plagued renewable energy facilities is how to efficiently store energy collected from sun or wind. Now, University of Michigan and University of Utah chemists have developed an energy-storing molecule that is 1,000 times more stable than current compounds, potentially leading to a longer-lived, more efficient battery. The researchers are working to develop industrial-scale batteries that can store large amounts of energy for deployment when the sun sets or the wind stops blowing. Deep-cycle lead batteries or lithium ion batteries are already on the market, but each type presents challenges, including the significant environmental hazards of disposal. Also, these kinds of batteries wear out relatively quickly. Cont'd...
NEC Energy Solutions to Build and Operate 50 MW of Grid Energy Storage Facilities in UK for VLC Energy
NEC Energy Solutions contracted to build and operate a total of 50 MW of lithium-ion based energy storage facilities for VLC Energy, a joint venture between Low Carbon and VPI Immingham, to provide Enhanced Frequency Response to the UK electricity grid among other services. Under construction now, the facilities are expected to be operational by November 2017.
Aquion Energy, Schneider Electric, EIWAT Solar and RE-ENERGY Partner with Kyushu Electric Power Company to Construct "EIWAT STORAGE I" 122kW Solar and Storage System
Kagoshima Prefecture-based project is scheduled for installation in Q3 2017 as part of Japan's popular Excess Energy Purchasing Scheme and Feed-in Tariff
The agreement calls for Younicos to replace earlier-generation lead-acid batteries and battery racks with advanced lithium-ion batteries. The implementation of li-on batteries will increase the operational lifetime of the storage resource.
Today, SDG&E is showcasing the world's largest lithium-ion battery energy storage facility in partnership with AES Energy Storage, which will enhance regional energy reliability while maximizing renewable energy use. The 30 megawatt (MW) energy storage facility is capable of storing up to 120 megawatt hours of energy, the energy equivalent of serving 20,000 customers for four hours. Last year, the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) directed Southern California investor-owned electric utilities to fast-track additional energy storage options to enhance regional energy reliability. In response, SDG&E expedited ongoing negotiations and contracted with AES Energy Storage to build two projects for a total of 37.5 MW of lithium ion battery energy storage. In addition to the 30 MW facility built in Escondido, Calif., a smaller 7.5 MW installation was built in El Cajon. Full Press Release:

Today, national business groups representing the range and breadth of clean energy companies in the United States cheered government statistics showing their industries support more than 3 million American jobs - equal to the employment of retail stores across the country, and twice as many jobs as involved in construction of buildings. This is based on 2016 data recently released by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in its second annual U.S. Energy and Employment Report. Full Press Release:
Once complete in April 2017, research staff from the NREL will utilize the 10+ demonstrated applications of RESolve® to test certain modes ranging from frequency regulation and renewable energy integration, to more advanced modes such as "black start" and seamless grid-to-island transition.
