Colorado Mtn. College Solar+ Storage Project Announced (Ind. Report)
AMeresco
Date: 2021-04-09
Framingham, Mass.-based renewable energy and energy efficiency specialist Ameresco is reporting a partnership with Glenwood Springs, Colorado-headquartered Holy Cross Energy (HCE) for a solar and battery energy storage project at Colorado Mountain College's Spring Valley Campus.

Under the agreement, Ameresco will install, maintain and own 4.5MW of solar PV and 15 MWh battery energy storage and sell the generated output to HCE under a long-term PPA.

The project's avoided annual greenhouse gas emissions are expected to be 6,853 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, which equates to the emissions benefit of removing 1,481 passenger vehicles from the road, or not burning 7,551,050 pounds of coal.

Holy Cross Energy aims to source 100 pct of its electricity from renewable resources by 2030.

Battery Nanomaterial Tech Startup Raises $3Mn (Int'l. Funding)
Nanom
Date: 2021-04-05
Reykjavik, Iceland headquartered battery nanomaterials specialist Nanom reports it has raised $3 million in seed funding for its process technology that boost battery performance and expects to announce its partners in the next few months.

The nanomaterial process technology has provided a 9x improvement for the Nickel-Iron batteries used in a wide range of large-scale energy storage devices, transportation and other applications. The technology can also be used to create solid state batteries with carbon fibre and a silk interposer treated with an electrolyte. This can be used to create batteries in the structure of electric vehicles such as cars and boats. The company has already created a pilot project where a 1 meter electric boat was constructed where the hull of the boat became the battery.

The nanoparticle process generates particles that are many orders-of-magnitude more effective in increasing energy surface in existing batteries by mixing them into the slurry that is a standard part of all battery manufacturing lines. Nanom has achieved scale in its manufacturing process and can already satisfy the requirements of battery markets which is a key challenge for nanoparticle production, according to the company release.

Elon Musk Comments on a U.S. Carbon Tax (Notable Quote)
Elon Musk
Date: 2021-02-15
Following up on our 22 Jan coverage -- Elon Musk Offers $100Mn for Best Carbon Capture Tech -- the the battery energy storage, SpaceX and Tesla tycoon announced:

"I talked to the Biden administration, and they were like 'Well, this seems too politically difficult' and I was like, 'Well, this is obviously a thing that should happen', and by the way, SpaceX would be paying a carbon tax too. So I'm like, you know, I'm like, I think we should pay it too. It's not like we shouldn't have carbon generating things. It's just that there's got to be a price on this stuff," Musk said.

"If we just put a price on carbon emissions, the market will react in a sensible way. But because we don`t have a price on it, it is behaving badly," Musk noted.

"It's either we have sustainable energy or civilization collapses. And so if civilization doesn't collapse we will have sustainable energy, it's just a question of how soon does that happen. Sooner is better," Musk elaborated. (Source: Elon Musk, DNA, 13 Feb., 2021) Contact: Elon Musk (@elonmusk)

InterGen's Essex Battery Project Gets the Nod (Int'l. Report)
InterGen
Date: 2020-11-30
In the UK, Edinburgh-headquartered energy storage specialist InterGen reports receipt of planning consent from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to construct the UK's largest battery storage project at DP World London Gateway on the Thames Estuary.

The £200 million project will provide at least 320MW/640MWh of capacity, with the potential to expand to 1.3GWh -- more than ten times the size of the largest battery currently in operation in the UK. When fully charged, the battery could power up to 300,000 homes for two hours.

Construction on the Gateway project would likely begin in 2022, becoming operational in 2024. The company also has planning permission for a 175MW / 350MWh installation in Spalding, Lincolnshire.

    Alliant Energy Touts Iowa Clean Energy Blueprint (Ind. Report)
    Alliant Energy
    Date: 2020-11-02
    Madison, Wisconsin-based utility Alliant Energy is touting its "Clean Energy Blueprint for Iowa" plan to to increase the use of renewable resources, battery energy storage, build out the state's connected energy network and discontinue coal-fired power generation in Lansing by the end of 2022 while transitioning their Burlington Generating Station to natural gas in 2021.

    A key part of the Clean Energy Blueprint, which aligns with changing consumer preferences for more renewable energy, includes adding up to 400 MW of solar by 2023. When the 400 MW of solar is combined with the nearly 1,300 MW of owned-and-operated wind and the power generated by the company's existing solar farms in Dubuque, Marshalltown and Cedar Rapids, as well as other renewable sources, nearly 50 pct of Alliant Energy's Iowa generation portfolio will be from renewables.

    As we previously reported, Alliant Energy's 9,500 solar panel equipped Marshalltown Solar Garden and battery energy storage pilot facility at its Marshalltown Generating Station is now online. The 2.55-MW AC solar system generates sufficient power for nearly 400 homes and the system's 548kWh battery can be fully charged within two hours.

    Alliant has three solar + battery sites in Iowa, each of which is being used to pilot different combinations of solar power and energy storage technology. Alliant constructed its first solar system at the Indian Creek Nature Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and has two solar gardens in Dubuque which have been generating clean energy since 2017.
