HECO Seeks Renewable Energy Projects for Oahu, Maui (Ind. Report)
Hawaiian Electric
Date: 2022-05-06
In Honolulu, Hawaiian Electric (HECO) has drafted requests for proposals (RFP) for potentially a broad array of renewable energy projects on Oahu and Maui that will enable the future retirement of imported oil powered generators. Subject to Public Utilities Commission (PUC) approval, the company will seek proposals for wind, solar, biomass, biofuels and other renewable energy and capacity resources on Oahu and Maui.

This draft RFP includes firm renewable capacity for both islands. Firm renewable energy differs from intermittent resources such as solar and wind in that it is available at all times. While previous RFPs have focused exclusively on intermittent resources, this new procurement seeks to broaden the future generation mix to ensure the two islands have a diverse portfolio of generation resources.

For Oahu, HECO is seeking at least 475 GWh annually of variable renewable energy with storage to be in service by 2027. The company is also seeking 300 to 500 MW of renewable firm capacity to be in service by 2029, and 200 MW of renewable firm capacity to be in service by 2033.

For Maui, the company is seeking at least 180 GWh annually of renewable dispatchable energy and at least 40 MW of renewable firm capacity to be in service by 2027.

In 2018, Hawaiian Electric began the first phase of Hawaii's largest procurement effort for renewable energy resources to meet the state's 100 pct renewable portfolio standard requirement. The second phase of procurement started in 2019 and was among the largest single renewable energy procurments undertaken by a U.S. utility. From those first two phases of RFPs, nearly 600 MW and roughly 3 GWh per year of energy storage are in development and expected to be in service by 2024.

Aussie, Chinese Researchers Developing Biodegradable Organic Battery (New Prod. & Tech.)
Flinders University
Date: 2022-02-28
In the Land Down Under, Researchers at Flinders University in Adelaide, along with Australian and Chinese collaborators, are developing a "fully bio-degradable" all-organic polymer battery that can deliver a cell voltage of 2.8V, which would be a giant leap forward towards improving the energy storage capability of organic batteries,

Fully organic rechargeable household batteries are an ideal alternative to traditional metal-based batteries, and are a positive step in the fight to reduce waste from heading to landfill.

"While starting with small household batteries, we already know organic redox-active materials are typical electroactive alternatives due to their inherently safe, lightweight and structure-tunable features," says senior lecturer in chemistry, Dr Zhongfan Jia, a research leader at Flinders University's Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology.

Lithium-ion batteries have enabled a proliferation of portable devices and electric vehicles, but the rising demand for materials such as lithium, cobalt and other mineral ore resources have had a significant global environmental impact, including the non-hazardous disposal of batteries, according to the release.

In Washington, the US DOE has issued two notices of intent to provide $2.91 billion to boost production of the advanced batteries that are critical to rapidly growing clean energy industries of the future, including electric vehicles and energy storage, as directed by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. DOE intends to fund battery materials refining and production plants, battery cell and pack manufacturing facilities, and recycling facilities. The funding is expected to be made available in the coming months and will ensure that the U.S. can produce batteries, as well as the materials that go into them, to increase economic competitiveness, energy independence, and national security.

In June 2021, DOE published a 100-day review of the large-capacity-battery supply chain, pursuant to Executive Order 14017, America's Supply Chains. The review recommended establishing domestic production and processing capabilities for critical materials to support a fully domestic end-to-end battery supply chain. President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law allocates nearly $7 billion to strengthen the U.S. battery supply chain, which includes producing and recycling critical minerals without new extraction or mining, and sourcing materials for domestic manufacturing.

Funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will allow DOE to support the creation of new, retrofitted, and expanded domestic facilities for battery recycling and the production of battery materials, cell components, and battery manufacturing. The funding will also support R&D and demonstration of second-life applications for batteries as well as new processes for recycling, reclaiming, and adding materials back into the battery supply chain.
