New York City can cleanse its air, support more intermittent solar energy and help avert a potential "capacity crisis" in coming years by replacing some of its dirtiest and oldest fossil fuel-fired power plants with increasingly cost-competitive batteries, say energy storage experts….
"Battery storage debuted in the L.A. basin. Now it is ready for prime time in New York City," Huber said. "We are not claiming storage can make up for all of the shortfall. But it can add 400 to 500 MW by 2021."
Thirty percent of New York City’s old fossil fuel plants are slated for retirement in the next five years. Could energy storage take their place? A new report, “New York City’s Aging Power Plants: Risks, Replacement Options and the Role of Energy Storage,” says it would be a wise environmental move.
New York City has ambitious energy goals, including a goal of installing 100 MWh of storage by 2020 and reducing emissions 80% by 2050. While the city has faced some difficulties in deploying batteries, in part due to fire codes and other regulations, the new NY-BEST analysis shows the potential impact is significant.
The 2017 Edition of the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report reveals a global energy transition well underway. Strategen Consulting served as lead authors on a section titled "Energy Storage," which examines energy storage technologies, markets and policies around the world.
Strategen was selected to be among the consultants that support dozens of teams across the country with their technical needs as part of the Solar in Your Community Challenge, a new $5 million prize competition from the Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative.
