Department of Energy Announces $46 Million to Improve Resiliency of Solar Generation

A resilient and reliable electricity grid is essential not only to the security of the infrastructure powering our economy, but also to the everyday lives of all Americans.

Green Building Certifications at All Time High in Nation's Largest Metros

Researchers have found green certified office space across America's 30 largest metros has reached 41 percent of market totals - the highest in the index's history.

Convergent Commissions the Biggest Behind-the-Meter Energy Storage System in North America

IHI, Inc. provides an energy storage system for Convergent to reduce Global Adjustment charges

Globally unique electrified road enables fossil-free road transport

The electrified road works by transferring energy to the vehicle from a rail in the road through a movable arm. The arm detects the location of the rail in the road and as long as the vehicle is above the rail, the contact will be in a lowered position.

GE Announces Innovative Energy Storage Platform Called the Reservoir

The Reservoir seamlessly integrates across the Grid to enable customers to increase Renewables integration, improve financial performance, enhance grid operations, reduce energy costs and enable more distributed, local generation

Tesla and Australia will turn 50,000 homes into a virtual solar power plant

Mark Austin for DigitalTrends: Installation of the 5kW solar panels and Tesla batteries has already begun on 1,100 public housing properties, with 24,000 more to follow. After that, the program will be opened up to as many as 50,000 South Australian homes.

Electric car 'batteries on wheels' could help solve renewable energy's storage issue

Joseph Flaig for Institution of Mechanical Engineers: Electric cars worldwide will soon have 10 times the total storage capacity of stationary batteries and should be thought of as "batteries on wheels" to solve renewable energy's storage problem, an expert has said.

Batteries can't solve the world's biggest energy-storage problem. One startup has a solution.

Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Electrochaea has also figured out a way to power the whole enterprise with the excess green energy produced during particularly sunny and windy days that otherwise would have gone to waste, because there would have been no way to store it.

Interview with Richard Reno of GE Power Conversion's Renewables Segment

Our strategy is to look at complete system and plant design - so everything to do with electrification, grid integration and connection, exceptionally also extends to the panels themselves - to provide one integrated package to customers to optimize overall plant design for cost-efficiency, and financial services as the project enabler.

Solar Plus Storage Projects Will Increasingly Offer Resiliency

Peter Kelly-Detwiler for Forbes: The SRUSD will be able to cut energy costs (during some months, as much as 70-80% of the district's electricity needs will be met by the systems).

GE Working on Robot That It Says Can Save $200 Billion of Power

Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: The technology would optimize how electricity flows in and out of storage devices such as batteries and points of consumption, in real time. This is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the grid and save consumers money.

How Will the Eclipse Affect Solar Power?

Electricity generation for the entire country will be somewhat affected by the eclipse, but some states will see a larger drop in solar power than others, depending on how much of the sun is blocked by the moon in their specific location. Fortunately, there are plenty of energy resources available to fill the gap.

Invenergy and GE Renewable Energy Announce America's Largest Wind Farm

-Renewable giga-project Wind Catcher Energy Connection to link more than 1.1 million South Central U.S. customers with cost-saving wind energy harvested from Oklahoma. -The 2,000-megawatt Wind Catcher facility will be world's second-largest wind farm, once operational in 2020.

How data analytics is adding value in the smart home

Paige Leuschner for SmartCitiesDive: In the energy industry, utilities are employing these solutions to provide customers with more information about their energy consumption.

Solar Experiment Lets Neighbors Trade Energy Among Themselves

Diane Cardwell for The New York Times: Brooklyn is known the world over for things small-batch and local, like designer clogs, craft bourbon and artisanal sauerkraut. Now, it is trying to add electricity to the list. In a promising experiment in an affluent swath of the borough, dozens of solar-panel arrays spread across rowhouse rooftops are wired into a growing network. Called the Brooklyn Microgrid, the project is signing up residents and businesses to a virtual trading platform that will allow solar-energy producers to sell excess-electricity credits from their systems to buyers in the group, who may live as close as next door. The project is still in its early stages - it has just 50 participants thus far - but its implications could be far reaching. Cont'd...
