DOE has awarded about $10.1 million in funding to four companies to advance grid-scale energy storage technologies.
Morocco is set to inaugurate next month the first component of a 580 MW complex of mainly concentrated solar power plants.
Growth in solar microgrids — and all forms of distributed solar — is accelerating. So much so that utilities better jump into the market now or risk watching it pass them by.
For solar, the 2015 per acre rent on public land ranges from $16.50 to $6,897.20, and these rates go up every year.
The Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) on Nov. 23 said it awarded contracts for nine energy storage projects totaling 16.75 MW. The projects complete IESO’s plan to secure a total of 50 MW of energy storage in Ontario, the organization said.
