    Consumers Energy Selects Doosan GridTech To Deliver Innovative Battery Energy Storage System

    Consumers Energy has selected Doosan GridTech as its partner to deliver one of the energy provider’s first battery energy storage systems. The Parkview storage system will be deployed at the Colony Farm substation in Kalamazoo, Michigan with a capacity of one megawatt which is enough energy to power 1,000 homes for an hour. “More than 40 percent of the energy we produce will come from renewable sources and energy storage by 2040, so this battery storage project is an important step today,” said Jean-Francois Brossoit, Consumers Energy’s senior vice president for transformation, engineering and operations support. “We look forward to innovating with Doosan GridTech to help meet our new clean energy goal while still providing safe, reliable and affordable energy to Michigan homes and businesses.”

    Goldwind Installs Primus Power Energy Storage System at Beijing Campus

    HAYWARD, Calif., April 01, 2018 - Primus Power (“Primus”), the leading long duration stationary energy storage company, announced today that Etechwin is operating an EnergyPod 2 at their Beijing campus. Etechwin is the microgrid subsidiary of Goldwind, a world-leading wind turbine manufacturer. The curtailment on wind energy is a significant economic problem, especially in western China. As stated by Bloomberg, "drawing upon data from China's National Energy Administration, Bloomberg New Energy Finance recently estimated that owners of China’s wind and solar assets forewent approximately $4.7 billion in potential revenue due to curtailment in 2017.” In June 2017, the Qinghai province recognized the critical role that energy storage can play to reduce curtailment and proposed new legislation that would mandate the use of energy storage systems with new wind turbine installations.

    Energy Storage Association Praises Aspects of Federal Spending Bill

    The Energy Storage Association (ESA) recently applauded increased federal funding for energy storage in the recently passed omnibus spending bill for fiscal year 2018 while noting the absence of certain measures from the legislation that would have advanced energy storage deployment. The bill includes an approximately $1.5 billion increase in funding for U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) clean energy innovation investments over the prior fiscal year, ESA noted. The Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) received a 32 percent increase to its grid energy storage applied research and development budget, increasing FY2018 investments in grid storage to $41 million as requested previously by House Republicans.
