Samsung SDI Comes to the Rescue to Support California Energy Industry with Ultra-Fast Battery Delivery for the World's Largest Battery-Based ESS Project
On February 24, 2017, the world's largest Energy Storage System (ESS), a 30 MW, 120 MWh installation powered by AES Energy Storage's Advancion platform and Samsung SDI batteries was unveiled. A second Advancion array utilizing Samsung SDI batteries, a 7.5 MW, 30 MWh installation, was completed nearby and unveiled during the same event. Late 2016, Samsung SDI was awarded to supply a staggering 70% (240 MWh out of 340 MWh) of all the batteries for all the ESS projects awarded to address regional reliability concerns in Southern California (including the above mentioned and just unveiled installations). Samsung SDI delivered this immense batteries volume across all ESS projects in a remarkably shortened 4 months period from order, to manufacturing, delivery, installation and commissioning. With this unprecedented success, Samsung SDI strengthens its position as the #1 battery supplier of energy storage solutions in North America through strategic cooperation with key energy and ESS global leaders awarded as part of the lightning speed procurements.
There is every reason to believe that the US will follow the same course as Europe and embrace offshore wind as part of a wider drive to decarbonize electricity generation. For example, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has enacted a law that requires its utilities to buy 1.6GW of their energy from offshore sources by 2027.

AES and AIMCo Agree to Acquire sPower, the Largest Independent Solar Developer in the United States, from Fir Tree Partners
sPower, a Fir Tree portfolio company that the firm capitalized in 2014, owns and operates utility and commercial distributed electrical generation systems across the United States. The sPower portfolio includes 1,274 MW of solar and wind projects in operation or under construction and a development pipeline of more than 10,000 MW located in the United States.
Under contract and in partnership with Atlantis, Lockheed Martin designed the 1.5 megawatt AR1500 turbine. In addition to system design, Lockheed Martin developed, manufactured and delivered two innovative subsystems, the Yaw Drive System (YDS) and the Variable Pitch System (VPS). The two elements enable the turbine to rotate autonomously around its base, so it always faces into the tidal flow. The pitch angle of the turbine blades also adjusts to optimize the power generation in a given tidal stream.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
