Con Edison and infrastructure company GI Energy are partnering on a unique demonstration project, installing a 1 MW battery storage project on a customer property on City Island in the Bronx. The project will deliver power to businesses along the commercial strip in the summer, relieving grid strain when temperatures rise. The project involved a
RWE Renewables’ first European battery energy storage system (BESS) - an 8.5MWh project - has gone live in Dublin, Ireland. The battery is set to provide balancing services to the Irish grid to help it integrate increased renewable energy, with a target of 70% of electricity demand to be met by renewables by 2030. Located in Stephenstown, Balbriggan,
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) this week released a report that assesses energy storage capacity statewide and recommends significantly increasing it by pairing solar energy with storage for a cleaner, more resilient electric grid. The report identifies policies, programs, and incentives that decision-makers can pursue to add energy storage technologies to the state
While the average output (in megawatts) and capacity (in megawatt-hours) of grid-connected battery storage systems appear to be getting larger, with some recently completed and announced projects exceeding the hundred MW / MWh mark, there’s still a vital role to be played for smaller systems that showcase the multiple different configurations and applications for lithium-ion
Utility-scale solar + storage installer Strata Clean Energy has announced its name change from the former Strata Solar. The rebrand represents the company’s commitment to the proliferation of clean energy products by providing more safe and reliable renewable energy options — especially for large, utility scale energy consumers.
The project will be the company’s third utility-scale plant to feature its Advanced Compressed Air Energy Storage technology and its second in Canada. Hydrostor, a Canadian long-duration energy storage solution provider, received C$4 million ($3.19 million) from Natural Resources Canada’s Energy Innovation Program and Sustainable Development Technology Canada to pursue its development of a 300-500
Brazil’s state-controlled utility Eletrobras signed a preliminary agreement with Germany’s Siemens Energy to develop a green hydrogen pilot plant, adding to regional momentum surrounding the emerging resource.

BMR Energy, a Virgin Group company and developer, owner, and operator of clean energy projects in the Caribbean and Latin America, announced today that it is starting construction of the 6.4-megawatt (MWp) Donoe Solar farm on St. Thomas. The facility is expected to be completed and enter service in the fourth quarter of this year
A lithium-ion battery energy storage system that has been switched on in Rani Bagh, Delhi, will serve multiple applications and could pave the way for adoption of smarter energy networks based on renewable energy across India. The battery system is relatively small by the standards of some of the grid-scale systems that are starting to
If you believe that lithium-ion batteries and pumped hydro are the only viable energy-storage options and that long-duration storage technologies are a long way from commercial reality, think again.For instance, UK start-up Highview Power, a pioneer in liquid-air energy storage, which has begun construction of two 50MW commercial projects in the US (400MWh) and the
