Experts Agree: Electric Grid Will Stay Ahead of the Curve on the Clean Power Plan

In a timely new report, three prominent electric grid industry experts refute claims that the president’s proposal to cut carbon pollution from power plants will jeopardize electric grid reliability. The authors, Susan Tierney, Eric Svenson, and Brian Parsons, explain that those claims undervalue the grid’s strengths and the Clean Power Plan’s flexible design. They also chart a role for grid planners to help states develop their plans to cut carbon pollution.

The Future of Energy Storage and the Rise of Big Batteries

When examining the machine that is our electric grid, a compelling fact is that we are relatively unable to store electric energy. We must create as much as we consume, and can only consume as fast as we create. One issue that comes up in the renewable space when meditating on this relentless and necessary cycle is that renewable energy is intermit

A Solution to Intermittent Renewables Using Pumped Hydropower

Integrating large quantities of renewable generation with low-carbon technology will require the development of large flexible carbon-free generation and storage assets. Over the last 40 years, numerous large capacity pumped-storage hydropower plants (PSPs) have been built worldwide, many of which could be retrofitted to provide grid-balancing services that the grid of the future will need.

Brazil-based Renova’s Partnership with SunEdison Shows Shift in Strategy

Instead of owning and operating power plants, which deliver long-term, steady revenue streams, Renova Energia SA’s Thursday deal to sell assets to TerraForm Global Inc., a newly formed unit of U.S. developer SunEdison Inc., is the first step toward selling all its operating assets, according to a person involved in the deal who asked not to be identified because the plans are private.
