This mineral shouldn’t exist on Earth’s surface. But researchers found it inside a diamond.

Investors are pouring billions into novel 'long-duration #energystorage technologies. What techs are most promising?

Dept of @Energy's Storage Earthshot wants to cut storage costs 90%. Is that enough?

How long is 'long duration'?

My new paper w/@nsepulvedam has answers... 🧵
Our new @Joule_CP commentary (authors.elsevier.com/a/1dj0d925JEG7…) builds on a recent @NatureEnergyJnl research paper (nature.com/articles/s4156…) to sift through the broad ‘‘design space’’ for potential long-duration energy storage (LDES) technologies & offer insights to guide innovation...
In short: to meet the cost & performance targets identified in our research, LDES techs need:

1. Ultra-low energy capacity costs (~$1-10 per kilowatt-hour the device is capable of storing)
2. Suitably high efficiency (particularly for discharge)
3. >100 hrs sustained discharge.

When I said this was HUGE, it might not be obvious to even the rarefied air of #energytwitter why I'm so amped about @FERC approval of @pjminterconnect capacity accreditation reforms for #energystorage.

Allow me to explain... (thread alert!) 1/
@FERC @pjminterconnect First, grid operators can now compare how #energystorage contributes to power system reliability on an apples-to-apples basis with fuel-based generation. It's a definitive statement that "yes, storage can be counted on for reliability" and answers analytically how much 2/
Every supply resource has its own constraints for providing power system reliability. Fuel-based generators break down or have fuel constraints. Wind & solar output depends on weather. Demand response can vary with customer behavior/fatigue. #energystorage has output limits. 3/

The Concord project opted to go with Solar (PV) connected to an energy storage system (battery storage) in lieu of a backup generator.

This system has been designed to keep the critical loads for the home operational even if the utility power is knocked out.
This includes the backup heating and domestic hot water system (gas boiler with radiant floor heat + indirect hot water tank), the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, TV/WiFi, lighting and receptacles in strategic areas.
The Generac PwrCell provides 18 kWh of battery storage in a single cabinet, and up to 9 kW of continuous power output, enough to power the critical loads for extended periods of time. It can also be expanded to 36 kWh of battery storage in the future should it ever be needed.

🔋China to boost Energy Storage above 30GW by 2025

🇨🇳 state planner NDRC released draft 'Guidelines on Speeding up New Types of Energy Storage (excl. pumped storage) Deployment'

That is tenfold increase in Battery Storage capacity from 2020 level of 3.3GW
The draft NDRC guideline states key targets:

2025: New Type of Energy Storage will evolve from initial commercial stage to large-scale deployment.

2030: Full market-based mechanism for Energy Storage 🔋, meeting needs in New Power System.
🇨🇳energy regulators pinned main measures to boost #EnergyStorage in draft guideline:

🔹Energy Storage sectoral Plan, with targets and key tasks in 14FYP and mid-long term
🔹🔋Technology progress
🔹Energy storage joins power market incl. capacity mechanism

Did you see yesterday's announcement about the EasyBat app, built by @bebat_BE and running on the #EnergyWeb tech stack?

Learn more about EasyBat and how it works here: energyweb.org/technology/app…

Also, check out this brief thread. 👇 Image
EasyBat is a #blockchain-based solution for identifying and tracking batteries throughout their lifecycle, from production, to ownership and operation, to second-life uses, recycling, and/or end-of-life disposal.
#Electrification & #energystorage are key components of the global #EnergyTransition, so this is a pretty big deal... not just for consumer batteries, but also for stationary batteries that are part of residential & commercial #solar PV systems, not to mention #ElectricVehicles.

1/4 #Nuclear power plants are bespoke, slow to build, and fat tailed for financial and safety risks. #Wind farms and #energystorage are modular, fast, and thin tailed.
2/4 By choosing wind over nuclear, the risk of regression to the tail will be significantly reduced, and #climate goals will be achieved sooner. This is just one example. Many others exist.
3/4 Every investment alternative must be assessed in this manner to ensure that #stimulus spending becomes a boost instead of a drag on the economy. The latter is happening more often than we like to think.

It is a new tool box. A way to apply new thinking to the problems of contemporary life. What are we DOING when we change something in a system like #energy #transport #housing or #food?

We are changing a system which makes us free. Free to cook, clean, move and shelter.
So it is never just #energy #energytransition work we are doing. We are not just trying to hit #netzero we are intervening in peoples lives and #capabilities

These freedoms are part of a contract between individuls, society and institutions.

Key update on #EnergyStorage-as-transmission! @FERC accepted @misoenergy's "storage-as-transmission-only asset" (SATOA) proposal, subject to a further tariff filing by 9/24 elibrary.ferc.gov/IDMWS/common/o…

A thread on the issues in the order and some observations 1/
First, FERC approves the basic premise of MISO's SATOA, noting it as an extenstion of the Western Grid precedent that established storage-as-Tx. No real suprise there, other than that it re-affirms the distinction from NTAs 2/
FERC approves MISO's requirement only TOs may own SATOA, since MISO functional control depends on a Tx Owners Agreement; this seems to eliminate the possibility of a TO contracting for a SATOA asset, and thus would require non-TOs to become merchant TOs to offer SATOA 3/

🚨whoop whoop! thread alert!🚨

What will it take for #energystorage to replace fossil fuels?

A thread on @FormEnergyInc's recent white paper.

Here's a link to a short summary blog (full paper linked at the bottom). Read on for context and a summary!

bit.ly/BigBatteries
There are seemingly contradictory answers to this Q.

On one hand, we see arguments that renewables + storage + other cleantech are already cheaper on average than fossils. So cheap, in fact, that a large fraction of plants are at risk of being stranded: rmi.org/insight/clean-…
On the other, we see arguments that a meaningful portion of the gas grid can't be retired today w/out threatening the grid's reliability or cost. These arguments aren't coming from a fossil fuel lobby. Its coming from folks like the CPUC, UCS, and E3:

Great event and panel put together by @livemint @UtpalBhaskar converging diverse views from financing, #fossilfuel generation, #energytransition #technology and business operations in the #electricity value-chain! 1/n
As Power Minsiter @RajKSinghIndia rightly said, problems of capacity and #energyaccess has been solved, and the next problem to be solved is reducing #India's #carbonfootprint - #electrification of #mobility and #cooking is one pathway.
Increasing domestic and international demand for #electricity will lead to more #RenewableEnergy capacity installation; new connections and usage will ⬆️domestic demand, integration & #export (neighbors inc #Myanmar #SriLanka) will ⬆️cross-border demand, which India can supply.

“a Section 34 Ministerial Determination will be issued shortly to give effect to the Integrated Resource Plan 2019, enabling the development of additional grid capacity from renewable energy, natural gas, hydropower, battery storage and coal”

#BMN #EnergyStorage #vanadium
"Mantashe said he would in the next few weeks make a ministerial determination under section 34 of the Electricity Regulation Act to procure energy from all generation technologies."

#BMN #EnergyStorage #vanadium

businesslive.co.za/bd/national/20…
Mantashe states ;

"We will give further details to these measures in the SONADebate next week"

That debate is due to start in around 30 mins time.

Section 34 determination = Eskom tender release

Latest update on Eskom BESS Project tender, is that it is planned for release in Q1 2020.

More importantly, the 200MW phase 1 project, made up entirely of battery storage and valued at $485m, has had its completion date revised to June 2021.

Game on #BMN #vanadium
25th Sept 2019

"The only ministry that has not yet signed off is the Department of Public Enterprises, Moyo added."

"without committing to a launch date for the solicitation. “It’s imminent,” he said."

greentechmedia.com/articles/read/…
According to latest update from the World Bank, Eskom BESS Project received its final government approval from the Dept of Public Enterprises on 21st Nov 2019.

No more political barriers exist. So it's now purely about the Eskom finalising the tender.

Its truly imminent #BMN
