      New Business Models in Action: Storage Value Growing Rapidly

      One of the most exciting facets of the energy storage industry is the new and innovative business models that are shaking up the century-old utility landscape.

      From assets that can perform like generation, infrastructure, or load – independently, or even all at once – to the emergence of virtual power plants and aggregated asset business models, the energy storage industry is as dynamic as the technologies that power it.

      Cities and States Tackle Clean Energy, Climate After Trump Halts Environmental Action

      Federal environmental policy did an abrupt 180 this week, as President Trump signed an executive order to review the Clean Power Plan and undo several other rules targeting greenhouse gas emissions. But it remains an open question just how big of an impact those actions will have. The Washington Post reports states and cities across the country are likely to continue efficiency and renewables efforts, as the programs and goals are popular, tend to save money, and create jobs. There is widespread skepticism that Trump's climate actions can roll back the decline of the coal industry, for example. The falling cost of renewables and natural gas, and rise of efficiency, appear to make a long-term decline inevitable.

      National Grid's Proposed Transmission Line Will Ship 1.2 GW of Renewables from Canada |

      National Grid has proposed a $1 billion transmission project that would be able to bring 1,200 MW of renewable power into New England. National Grid’s Granite State Power Link would move the electric power through Vermont for 58 miles before entering New Hampshire at Monroe and ending at Londonderry in southern New Hampshire. The route of the proposed project would travel for about 58 miles on the expanded path of an existing high voltage direct current overhead line in Vermont and then use an upgraded existing overhead line in New Hampshire for 108 miles.

      Energy Industry: Colorado Governor: State Will Push Forward with Clean Energy

      DENVER (AP) — Colorado will push ahead to develop more affordable renewable energy despite President Donald Trump's order eliminating many restrictions on fossil fuels production, Gov. John Hickenlooper said Wednesday. Hickenlooper said Colorado has already met carbon pollution goals under the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan, which is under challenge in the courts and could be weakened or rescinded under the executive order that Trump signed Tuesday. His spokeswoman, Jacque Montgomery, said later Colorado has not yet met the goals but is on track to do so by 2030 — the deadline in the Clean Power Plan for U.S. states to cut carbon emissions 30 percent.
