New Energy Storage Safety Standards Set to Move Forward

Gita Subramony, ERS, for Zondits Energy storage has been a trending technology in recent years. With prices for lithium-ion batteries rapidly decreasing, energy storage solutions are poised to move forward rapidly. Storage applications in urban environments such as New York City have been garnering attention, although safety, permitting, and siting have been barriers to implementation. […]

New York is Spurring the Deployment of Energy Storage

Samantha Leroy, ERS, for Zondits When establishing Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) in 2014, Governor Andrew Cuomo set aggressive and exacting energy generation, usage, and efficiency targets for the Empire State. Targets set to be achieved by 2030 include a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from the 1990s, 50% of electricity generated from renewable […]

Solar Eclipse Highlights Need for More Grid Resiliency

Lisa Markowski, ERS, for Zondits Utility companies nationwide were more than adequately prepared for increased grid demand caused by drop-offs in solar power generation during the August 21 eclipse. Nevertheless, the phenomenon shined light on the need for overall grid flexibility for managing short-term fluctuations in demand. Customers were expected to use more power during […]

Distributed Energy Resources and Energy Storage: A View from New York

 Mark D’Antonio, ERS, for Zondits As the demands on the electric grid continually evolve and as there is greater consideration of temporal and locational capacity needs, distributed energy resources (DER) and energy storage (ES) systems are increasingly being considered for a multitude of applications on either side of the meter. Capacity deferral, generation mix, demand […]
