      Microgrid to Serve as Core of Connecticut Mixed-Use Project

      The developer of a $110-$120 million mixed use project in Manchester, Connecticut plans to incorporate a microgrid that taps into opportunity zone federal tax breaks. The Manchester Broad Street Parkade microgrid will include around 1 MW of solar PV,  2-3 MW of natural gas-fired combined heat and power, batteries, and a water heating loop. The microgrid will be capable of operating continuously in tandem with the utility grid or autonomously, in island mode, in the event of grid outages.

      How did Massachusetts Blossom into an environment ripe for energy storage, pushing Technology and Business Models to the Cutting Edge?

      Today's energy storage technology can help power the country more efficiently and sustainably, and it's getting better all the time. However, this resource's greatest strength—the ability to both take in and let out energy rapidly—can be complicated to properly value. Having an energy storage system provide just one service can be expensive, and it's a big waste of potential. Enter Massachusetts, where the stars have aligned and the full potential of energy storage may soon be on display, providing not one or two services, but seven or eight with a single project.

      APS Issues RFPs for More Renewable Energy

      Arizona Public Service Company (APS) announced it is issuing two requests for proposals next month as part of its campaign to bring more solar and wind energy into its portfolio. The two new RFPs will add enough solar and wind resources to power more than half a million homes, about 2,500 megawatts, by 2021, company officials said. Earlier this year, the company also successfully closed two RFPs for large battery installations to store renewable energy to use after the sun goes down.
