Lawmakers propose energy storage system tax incentive

The bipartisan legislation would provide a federal investment tax credit for energy storage without the need for solar. Federal lawmakers have introduced the Energy Storage Tax Incentive and Deployment Act. The bipartisan legislation would create a standalone investment tax credit (ITC) for energy storage technologies for utilities, businesses, and homes. Jason Burwen, interim CEO of ESA, said the bill would put storage “on the same playing field as other clean energy technologies.”

Free registration open for #ESACon21

The U.S. Energy Storage Association Annual Conference & Expo (#ESACon21) will convene stakeholders throughout the energy storage ecosystem for a two-part event in 2021. Join us April 21-22, 2021 for the Virtual #ESACon21 — registration is free and open to the public. The U.S. energy storage industry is passing an inflection point, with the first GW installation year on record and set to jump an order of magnitude in coming years. U.S. public policy is increasingly focused on decarbonizing the economy while sustaining economic recovery that drives innovation, manufacturing, and sustainable growth.

How Siemens Energy Is Targeting the US Green Hydrogen Opportunity

Green hydrogen is both an untested and a potentially vital way for renewable-energy-powered grids to store their intermittent power for later use, not just for hours at a time, but for days, weeks or even seasons ahead. Most of the early-stage work on hydrogen’s grid storage potential is happening in Europe and Asia, but the U.S. does have a few projects taking steps toward proving out the concept. On Monday, Siemens Energy announced a U.S. Energy Department grant-funded project to study how its Silyzer electrolyzers could be combined with hydrogen compression, storage and power plant controls technology to meet those goals at Intermountain.

Sunrise brief: Energy storage posted a record quarter, WoodMac and ESA say

A record amount of energy storage systems came online in the fourth quarter, according to Wood Mackenzie and the U.S. Energy Storage Association’s (ESA) US Energy Storage Monitor. The report said that 2,156 MWh of storage entered service, a jump of 182% from the third quarter.

Overall, 2020 was the first year that advanced energy storage deployments surpassed gigawatt scale, the report said.

Storage deployments shatter records — again — in Q4 2020

More than 2,100 MWh of energy storage systems came online in the U.S. in the fourth quarter of 2020, marking a 182% increase over the previous quarter and setting a new record for the industry, according to a report from Wood Mackenzie and the U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA).

In total, 1,464 MW/3,487 MWh of new storage came online in the country last year — 179% more than 2019 in MW terms — and the report estimates that the storage market will deploy five times more MW in 2025, with front-of-the-meter systems continuing to comprise a bulk of that growth.
