The report recommends pairing grid-scale solar arrays with battery storage to help reduce carbon emissions and increase grid resilience. One way to catalyze this would be to set a state energy storage capacity target, as seven other states have done. There are currently about 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of energy storage capacity in the state. This represents 22 operational or announced energy storage projects, including traditional pumped hydro storage facilities (1.07 GW), lithium-ion batteries (18 megawatts; MW), lead-carbon batteries (12.5 MW), ice and chilled water thermal storage (6 MW), and other technologies providing smaller amounts.
For example, to get 10 pct of electricity from solar energy, the DEP Pennsylvania’s Solar Future Plan recommends increasing in-state solar energy from about 700 MW today to 11 GW by 2030. If 25 pct of this solar target were paired with a target of 1.5 GW of battery storage, Pennsylvania energy customers could save $273 million per year in wholesale energy costs and cut 2.5 million metric tpy of carbon emissions.
The Pennsylvania Energy Storage Assessment recommends 14 other measures to foster energy storage investment and integration, including convening a statewide storage issues forum, designating public funding to accelerate storage deployment, establishing incentive programs for storage projects, and accelerating microgrid deployment at critical facilities. As of February, there were 64 solar-plus-storage projects, totaling more than 2.3 GW, in the Pennsylvania portion of the planning queue of PJM, the wholesale electric regional transmission organization serving all or part of 14 states.

The project will include studies on hydrogen production, storage and co-firing with natural gas as well as evaluate multiple forms of hydrogen production, including green hydrogen, which has the potential to store larger quantities of energy more efficiently and for longer durations than lithium-ion battery technology.
Duke Energy has actively evaluated hydrogen as a low- or no-carbon fuel source to help meet its net-zero carbon goal by 2050, as have Siemens Energy and Clemson University as they aim for net-zero carbon by 2030.

Pound for pound, hydrogen contains 3 times as much energy as natural gas or gasoline and 200 times as much energy as lithium-ion batteries. It is the most abundant and prevalent clean energy in the universe but does not exist in its pure form and must be extracted. As of 2020, nearly 95 pct of hydrogen in the world is made by steam reforming of natural gas (grey hydrogen) or coal gasification (brown hydrogen). Both sources of hydrogen are basically different forms of dirty, carbon heavy, and non-renewable fossil fuels, according to the BioSolar release. (Source: BioSolar Inc., PR, 14 Dec., 2020)

NEC Energy holds the intellectual property rights for megawatt-scale lithium-ion batteries. Greenko, which has a net installed capacity of 6.2 GWdc across 15 Indian States, is committed towards transforming renewable energy from real-time energy to a dispatchable and controlled medium through digitization and storage solutions to support the economy-wide shift towards a carbon-neutral electricity mix, according to the company. The company has already initiated Integrated Renewable Energy Storage Projects in three Indian states.

The battery, which uses no rare metals and is potentially more cost-effective than lithium-ion batteries in large scale, is based on Metal Hydrides and Hydrogen, and has more than twenty times higher energy density than other heat storage.
Under the agreement,
ASU will analyse the TEXEL technology and evaluate its competitiveness to other energy storage technologies in solar and storage peaker plants, microgrids, critical public infrastructure and residential and commercial building applications. (Source: ASU, PR, Website, Nov., 2020)

The 300-MW Victorian Big Battery using Tesla's Megapack technology
will be double the size of Neoen's Hornsdale site in South Australia, which was the largest facility when it began operation in 2017. The new system will help modernize and stabilize the coal-dependent local grid, which is targeting 50 pct of its power to come from renewable sources by 2030. The new battery is expected to be operational by the end of 2021.
