The pilot project aims to empower customers, by helping them understand their consumption patterns and evaluate the effectiveness of DR programs. Based on the acceptance and success of the pilot, the program will also be extended in a phased manner to the following areas:
To measure the acceptability of behavioural demand response programs and increase customer participation, the company will also provide incentives to customers based on the level of their participation in the pilot program. The results of the pilot will then be shared with the state regulator (DERC) to formulate appropriate incentives which can be applicable for all customers.

The project designed by Ameresco will provide tangible facility improvements and enable recurring reductions in utility costs, while converting 4 pct of Cannon's electric energy usage to onsite renewable resources.
Planned improvements will include: upgrades to existing transformers; direct digital controls (DDC); HVAC equipment; a 1.9MW ground mount solar photovoltaic (PV) array; and LED lighting retrofits. These upgrades are projected to save Cannon AFB roughly $1.1 million in the first year alone and $33 million over the course of the performance period.

RayGen's solar-hydro power plant consists of RayGen's proprietary PV Ultra, a concentrating photovoltaic solar co-generation tower, combined with its patented electro-thermal storage. The technology generates heat as a by-product which is captured and used for thermal storage. The electro-thermal storage system consists of an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine, industrial chillers and two insulated water-based thermal storage pits or reservoirs, each roughly the size of four Olympic size swimming pools. One of the reservoirs is kept at a temperature of 90 degrees and the other at close to 0 degrees, and the temperature difference is used to generate dispatchable electricity using ORC turbines, according to RayGen.
The project builds on a feasibility study and development work supported by a $3 million ARENA grant in March 2020. ARENA also supported RayGen with $8.67 million in funding to develop and construct its 1-MW PV Ultra pilot project in Newbridge, Victoria. (Source: ARENA, PR, June, 2021)

Iberdrola is looking to help these industries on their energy transition, searching for ad-hoc solutions for factories to improve the efficiency of the energy used while reducing CO2 emissions in a sustainable and cost-effective manner. The solutions submitted must meet the following needs:
CAPEX and OPEX inputs: Investment Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) and Payback Periods (PB).
The proposals will be analysed based on criteria of scalability, replicability, ease of implementation and integration of ad-hoc decarbonisation solutions for industrial plants.
The selected project will be developed in collaboration with the technical specialists from the Iberdrola Industrial Heating and Cooling area. Iberdrola will collaboration on the development of a proof-of-concept and may offer the winner the opportunity to scale up the solution by means of commercial agreements. Additionally, PERSEO may consider investing in the participant.

In 2020, Wyoming installed 1,123 megawatts of wind power, nearly doubling its capacity and ranked second nationwide, after Texas, led by the state's largest utility, Rocky Mountain Power.
Interestingly, the Wyoming Industrial Siting Council, the regulatory board charged with reviewing big wind project applications has not received a new proposal for a wind project since 2019.

The white paper explores the AI-powered solar tracking solutions that are capable of overcoming the problem of energy production losses suffered by solar power plants due to challenging weather conditions, ubiquitous terrain undulation and inevitable variability in site construction, while ensuring a reliable increase in energy yield throughout the life cycle of PV power plants.
According to the white paper, Arctech's solar tracking solution integrates four strategies: the tracking control strategy on a real terrain, the cloud strategy based on real-time weather data, the bifacial strategy for bifacial modules and trackers and the control strategy based on sharing parameters with inverters.
Distributed energy storage and energy-efficiency were instrumental in the school reaching its goal. The also school installed more than 3,300 photovoltaic modules with 13.93 MWh of battery storage and is part of a partnership with Johnson Controls and Mauo, a subsidiary of Pacific Current.
The state of Hawaii has committed to achieve 100 pct renewable energy by 2045 and a collective goal for the university system's 10 campuses to be "net-zero" by January 1, 2035.
