This is a report from the Global Grid Transformation (GGT) conference track at the 6th annual Energy Storage North America (ESNA), which took place in November 2018 in Pasadena, California. The event brought together key stakeholders from Australia, Europe, and the Americas to exchange ideas, share success stories, and brainstorm on key challenges, with a focus on promoting a low-emission, resilient, and affordable power grid. IHS Markit worked together with Strategen consultants and ESNA to prepare this white paper, providing a recap of the most important points faced today by the energy storage industry. This report dissects how how various markets are developing and how stakeholders can identify and target growth opportunities for energy storage.
This report, “Global Grid Transformation: Spearheading the Role of Energy Storage in the Global Transformation to a Cleaner, More Resilient and Efficient Grid” is from the first-ever facilitated conference track among private- and public-sector leaders from Mexico, Australia and China at the Energy Storage North America 2017 Conference and Expo. The Global Grid Transformation Report provides a recap of the current situation facing each country, the key questions each region is trying to address, and the next steps towards achieving a cleaner, more efficient, and more resilient grid in their respective markets.
This whitepaper, prepared by Strategen Consulting for the Global Energy Storage Alliance, with generous funding support by the Wells Fargo Foundation, provides clear and practical guidance on how electric utilities can procure energy storage resources to perform as electric resources used to balance supply and demand on the electric grid. It includes an introduction to energy storage technologies and applications, example utility procurements and storage pilots, as well as links to helpful resources.
Energy storage could effectively put New York City on a path to transition away from an aging electric generation fleet to a cleaner grid and achieve the state’s clean energy goals, according to the report, “New York City’s Aging Power Plants: Risks, Replacement Options and the Role of Energy Storage”, released by the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST), in partnership with Strategen Consulting.
Stakeholders within Minnesota’s power sector today unveiled a new analysis finding that energy storage can be part of Minnesota’s least-cost path forward for future energy resource investments, and can help the state meet its goals to be a leader in renewable energy and in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Prepared on behalf of New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST), Strategen Consulting presents a study that shows that energy storage, along with a portfolio of other clean energy sources, can replace the 2,000 megawatt Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, produce savings for customers and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Prepared on behalf of Arizona's Residential Utility Consumer Office, a whitepaper from Strategen Consulting presents an alternative RPS framework that can help to achieve clean energy resource procurement better aligned with the full suite of grid services that electric power system operators need to supply.
