Subject to financing, energy storage technology and services provider Fluence, which was formed in 2017 as a Siemens-AES Corporation JV, will provide the lithium-ion battery system. Siemens will handle project management including the building of medium-voltage switchgear equipment and facilitating connection to the local high-voltage grid.
Siemens broke ground earlier this month on an 8.75MW green hydrogen electrolyser plant at the Town of Wunsiedel's local "energy park". The plant's proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser will be connected to a 6MW battery storage system that Siemens supplied and installed in 2017.

That means that we have to also adapt to climate change, the most important thing is to mitigate climate change, to stop using fossil fuels and also pay attention to our diet."

Governor Tom Wolf (D) signed an executive order starting the RGGI process in October 2019, as part of his overall climate goals of reducing state greenhouse gas emissions 26 pct by 2025 and 80 pct by 2050, compared to 2005 levels. The Pennsylvania DEP estimates RGGI participation will prevent between 97-227 million tons of carbon emissions between 2022 and 2030, depending on factors such as energy demand. Pennsylvania is among the country's top five carbon emitting states.
Under RGGI, power plants with a generation capacity of at least 25 MW and that send 10 pct or more of their power to the grid must purchase allowances for each ton of CO2 they emit. RGGI began with Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont, and more recently added New Jersey and Virginia.

Four policies have been approved in Mexico and Colombia, while another 10 are in development in Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Guatemala. These policies are boosting energy savings across the built environment while also introducing new systems for monitoring performance and accessing data. Given the size of the region -- a population of 624 million, more than 80 pct of whom live in cities -- introducing ambitious policies will be key in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement, the WorldGBC said.
According to the report, "the building and construction sector has a significant importance in the sustainability agenda, but it has traditionally been fragmented, slowing the scaling of innovation, improvements in productivity and best practice from one project to another."
The WorldGBC Cities Climate Action Project was launched in 2019 with the aim of delivering projects and policies that promote resource efficiency in buildings.
The regulations in development in each country will give the private sector "the right set of signals to align their investments with the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.", according to the WorldGBC report.

The installation, which includes four "second-life" lithium-ion, electric vehicle batteries totaling 130kWh capacity, will store solar energy obtained from the plant to later inject it into the grid. The project concludes with a comparative analysis to verify the equal performance of recycled batteries against first use batteries.
ACCIONA will operate the system from its Renewable Energy Control Center (CECOER) with its global energy management platform GEMS, which enables optimized management, real-time monitoring and analysis of parameters.
The storage plant is part of the experimental facilities of Montes del Cierzo in Tudela and is the result of a joint project with startup BeePlanet within ACCIONA's open innovation program, I'mnovation. BeePlanet, together with ACCIONA, is part of the Government of Navarre-backed GERA project specializing in energy storage systems.

According to Honeywell, its BESS Platform leverages best practices for energy management such as energy arbitrage and demand management to deliver flexibility and control of when energy is purchased and used. The BESS platform, which can be used for a wide range of commercial and industrial companies, independent power producers, and utilities, improves grid stability and sustainability while decreasing supply costs and the need for non-renewable power sources such as gas turbines and diesel generators.

The onshore wind farm -- the first in Laos -- will be located in Sekong and Attapeu Provinces and will the largest in South East Asia. The project is being developed as part of a MoU on power interchange signed between the Vietnamese and Lao governments in October 2016. If electricity exports from this project are realized, it is expected to be the first cross-border electricity interchange from wind power generation in South East Asia as planned by Lao government.

The heat category of the map includes past temperature data as well as projections for the future. According to the map, the greatest increase in temperatures will occur in the northern part of the state, which could see an approximately 3 pct increase in average temperatures between now and 2050. Temperatures will continue increasing after 2050, with the greatest change projected to occur between 2070 and 2099 when the northern part of the state could see a more than 8 pct increase in temperatures.

One study will look at the feasibility of creating salt caverns for hydrocarbon storage which is going to be important for attracting the petrochemical industry, as well as for storing hydrogen and other liquid fuels. The study will cost $9.5 million. The other $500,000 study looks at hydrogen energy development in North Dakota. Two companies recently announced a plan to produce "blue hydrogen" at the Great Plains Synfuels Plant.
"Blue hydrogen is what we create using a fossil fuel source. We then capture the carbon, and store it underground. It's perfect for a state like North Dakota. Minnesota, Iowa, places like that cannot, because they don't have suitable geology," the release noted.
The state's Oil and Gas Research Council will still have to complete a technical review before the studies can move forward, the release noted. (Source: UNDEERC, Website PR, June, 2021)Contact: UNDEERC, Niki Massmann, Communications, 701.777.5000, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.undeerc.org
