Solar needs storage to compete in National Grid’s UK Capacity Market redesign

National Grid has outlined how renewables could participate in the UK’s Capacity Market, unveiling technology-specific de-rating factors that range from 1–15%.

However National Grid’s Daniel Burke warned that there remains a long way to go before renewables can participate in CM auctions, not least because of the need for policy reform.

Any introduction of renewable energy into the CM would require regulatory overhaul from BEIS and market regulator Ofgem, matters which, Burke said, mean it is “quite feasible” to “take some time”.

Wind, solar could be self-financing by 2025 under current European electricity market design

According to the Centre on Regulation in Europe (CERRE), Large-scale solar and wind power projects may already be able to compete in Europe’s wholesale electricity market in 2025. Lower capital costs for large-scale wind and solar projects, and much higher fossil fuel and carbon prices could lead to renewables becoming self-financing by 2025. If these conditions do not materialize, more auctions and tenders may still be needed.

In our opinon at cellution battery technology can help developing more economical models for wind and solar energy in the future and may enable renewables even befor 2025 to compete with conventional energy applications.

Nordic region’s largest battery will assist 44MW hydropower plant as it balances the grid

Fortum announced that it will install the newest 5MW/6.2MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) at Forshuvud hydropower plant. It is one of dozens of hydropower plants Fortum owns and operates running off the Dalälven river’s catchment area through central Sweden. As with the Järvenpää battery, the Forshuvud battery will provide frequency regulation services. Forshuvud is a 44MW plant generating around 209.8GWh of electricity annually and is 88% owned by Fortum.

EU Commission presents plan to go carbon neutral by 2050

As part of its Paris Agreement obligations, the EU Commission has presented a carbon-neutral vision for 2050, which encompasses GDP growth through smart investments and public health savings.

It is still just a vision and has yet to be approved by the relevant authorities. To this end, the commission has invited the European Council, the European Parliament and the Committee of Regions, as well as the Economic and Social Committee to attend a conference on May 9, 2019, in Sibiu, Romania.

UK, Germany should push on storage, EVs – BloombergNEF

Two new reports from BloombergNEF recommend that the two northern European countries should implement policies to accelerate the adoption of energy storage and smart electric vehicle charging, while also improving demand response and interconnection to Nordic hydropower reservoirs. All of these actions are expected to further reduce fossil fuel dependence and add flexibility to their respective energy markets.

Conquer the battery sector together with cellution

 

We support you on tasks such as development of tender documents with detailed technical specification and requirements for your battery storage project or review offers you get from system integrators. It is a difficult task to have proposals comparable and identify, which is the best offer. We can help you with this challenge and support you even further with contarcts for product or performance. As you may know, a Li-Ion battery for example looses 20-30% of its capacity over the lifetime. Thats why it is important to have a warranty that covers this loss of asset to be able to plan your business accordingly.

Cellution can support you on a broad variety of tasks related to stationary utility scale battery storage projects and is looking forward to get in contact with you!
