MIT engineers have come up with a conceptual design for a system to store renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, and deliver that energy back into an electric grid on demand.
The 2018 Virginia Energy Plan, which provides a strategic vision for the Commonwealth’s energy policy over the next 10 years, focuses on modernizing the electric grid and promoting innovative technologies, including solar and wind energy.
The United States could reliably meet about 80 percent of its electricity demand with solar and wind power generation, according to scientists at the University of California, Irvine; the California Institute of Technology; and the Carnegie Institution for Science.
Environment Texas and the Sierra Club called on the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) to approve a proposal by American Electric Power (AEP) to install two lithium-ion battery systems and to open up a rulemaking to clarify that energy storage technologies may be used by transmission companies for reliability purposes.
