Dominion RFP Quadruples Renewables, Energy Storage (Ind Report)
Dominion Energy Virginia
Date: 2020-05-04
In the Old Dominion State, Richmond-based Dominion Energy Virginia has issued its largest ever request for proposals (RFP) for up to 1,000 megawatts (MW) of solar and onshore wind generation and up to 250 MW of energy storage in the Commonwealth.

Projected expansion of offshore wind, solar, and energy storage development amounts to approximately 24,000 new megawatts of renewable energy and storage capacity over the next 15 years. The long-term IRP includes:

  • More than 5,000 MW of offshore wind is planned by 2035, including the 2,600 MW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project already announced by Dominion Energy. This offshore wind deployment -- the largest in North America -- has a 2026 target in-service date.

  • Dominion Energy's solar fleet, already the 4th largest among US utility holding companies, is projected to grow significantly as the Dominion Energy Virginia long-term IRP calls for the development and procurement of approximately 16,000 MW over the next fifteen years.

  • Energy storage capacity is projected to expand to approximately 2,700 MW meeting the most ambitious targets in the country set in the VCEA. This includes battery storage pilots already approved and scheduled to be online in Virginia next year.

    Also included in this year's filing is a significant increase in energy efficiency programs to meet the 5 pct energy sales reduction target by 2025 set by the VCEA.

    Dominion Announces Energy Storage Pilot Projects (Ind Report)
    Dominion Energy Virginia
    Date: 2019-08-07
    In the Old Dominion State, Richmond-based utility holding company Dominion Energy Virginia is reporting four utility-scale battery storage pilot projects totaling 16 megawatts -- the largest projects of their kind in Virginia.

    The four proposed Central Virginia-based lithium-ion projects will cost approximately $33 million to construct and will provide key information on distinct use cases for batteries on the energy grid. Pending SCC approval, the pilots would be evaluated over a five year period once operational as currently expected in December 2020. The projects include:

  • Two battery systems totaling 12 MW at the Scott Solar facility in Powhatan County that will demonstrate how batteries can store energy generated from solar panels during periods of high production and help optimize the power produced by the solar facility.

  • A 2-MW battery at a substation in Ashland will explore how batteries can improve reliability and save on equipment replacement costs by serving as an alternative to traditional grid management investments such as transformer upgrades, necessary to serve customers during times of high energy demand.

  • A 2-megawatt battery at a substation in New Kent County serving a 20-MW solar facility will show how batteries can help manage voltage and loading issues caused by reverse energy flow, to maintain grid stability.

    Dominion notes it expects to cut generating fleet CO2 emissions 80 pct by 2050 and reduce methane emissions from its gas assets 50 pct by 2030. (Source: Dominion Energy, PR, Aug., 2019) Contact: Dominion Energy, Mark D. Mitchell, vice president – generation construction www.dominionenergy.com

    Dominion Seeks Experimental Offshore Wind Turbine Approval (Ind. Report, New Prod & Tech)
    Dominion Energy,
    Date: 2018-08-06
    Reporting from Norfolk in the Old Dominion State, Dominion Energy Virginia reports it has submitted a proposal to the State Corporation Commission to construct two wind turbines 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, at the state's expense. Dominion is working with the Danish wind industry giant Orstad -- fka DONG Energy -- on the project.

    The experimental turbines will provide data that could pave the way for a vast wind farm at a future date.

    The project will test new designs to anchor the turbines in seabed conditions found off the Virginia coast and to withstand hurricane-force winds.

    The Commission previously rejects the project as too risky and expensive. (Source: Dominion Energy Virginia, Bacon's Rebellion, Blog, 4 Aug., 2018)Contact: Dominion Energy Virginia, https://twitter.com/dominionenergy, www.dominionenergy.com
