Ca. Clean Power Alliance Eyes Solar-Energy Storage Site (Ind Report)
Clean Power Alliance
Date: 2019-10-04
In the Golden State, the Clean Power Alliance, the California government-run agency now responsible for supplying electricity to over 1 million homes and businesses in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, reports it is looking to Moorpark as the site of its first stand-alone battery solar energy storage facility. The exact location and developer of the facility have not been revealed.

If constructed, the energy storage facility would enable the Alliance comprising 29 cities and two counties, to distribute electricity during peak-demand times and reduce the need for natural gas at night or on cloudy days, according to CPA.

Required by state law to get 55 pct of their energy from renewable sources by 2025, all power companies in California are investing in solar storage. To date, CPA has executed three agreements, two for solar and one for hydroelectric. The projects, still under construction, are expected to go online between December 2020 and December 2022, according to CPA.

APS Plans 850MW Solar Battery Storage (Ind. Report)
Arizona Public Service
Date: 2019-02-25
US-based electric utility Arizona Public Service (APS) is planning to add battery storage to its fleet of solarpower plants, as well as build solar facilities with storage. As part of the initiative, the company plans to add 850MW of battery storage and at least 100MW of new solar generation by 2025.

Large-scale solar plants owned by APS across the state will be upgraded with 200MW of battery storage systems. A team from Invenergy, an Illinois-based energy company will install six new battery systems at solar plants in Maricopa County and Yuma by 2020, with the balance to be complete by 2021. The utility is also planning to construct 500MW of solar storage and standalone battery storage by 2025 as part of its long-term clean-energy transition objective.

Fluence Touts SunFlex Solar Storage Platform (New Prod & Tech)
Fluence Energy
Date: 2018-01-12
Fluence Energy, an energy storage company owned by Siemens and The AES Corporation, is touting its SunFlex Energy Storage technology platform that it says enables solar facilities to sell up to 50 pct more clean energy per site, eliminates daylight solar variability and thus creates an on-demand solar resource.

The new platform allows developers to add more solar panels without the cost of changing their interconnection, improves plant stability by smoothing and limiting the ramping of solar output, and in many areas, simplifies the interconnection process for combined solar and storage facilities.

To date, Fluence has deployed or been awarded 56 projects with a total capacity of 485 MW in 15 countries. (Source: Fluence Energy, PR, 11 Jan., 2018) Contact: Fluence Energy, Stephen Coughlin, Pres., CEO, (571) 274-9404, www.fluenceenergy.com
