Energy Storage Solutions for an Intelligent Future, Mick Barlow, Energy Storage a USA Perspective

  1. 1. Energy Storage a USA Perspective Mick Barlow, Business Development Director S&C Electric Europe Ltd KBIA– October 2013 www.sandc.com
  2. 2. Who is S&C Electric? • Established in 1911 • Employee owned company with 2500 full-time employees • Headquartered in Chicago • 6 global business units • Specialists in electric power switching , protection and power quality equipment, including storage. 2
  3. 3. Energy Storage Capabilities • peak shaving / load management • load following / balancing • renewable generation smoothing / dispatch • islanding • frequency regulation / grid stabilization • voltage / power factor regulation • facility power protection (UPS) 3

  5. 5. How do we make storage happen? • Problems – Technology is new and still expensive. – Often the regulators consider storage as just another form of generation – IT IS NOT!! – Often support mechanisms are not in place in the way they are for solar and wind. We Needmulti-facited and can contributeApproach – Storage is To Take a Holistic to many markets. – It spans across market segments – generation, transmission and distribution. – In the Carbon Trust report in 2012 it stated that in the UK  15GW of storage by 2030 it would save £2bn/annum  25GW of storage by 2050 it would save £10bn/annum 5
  6. 6. Recent Energy Storage Developments in the US • Argonne National Labs in Chicago, IL recently received a $120M funding commitment to research and advance Energy Storage • Called Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) • George Crabtree, the director of JCESR stated his 5-5-5 vision at a recent energy storage conference in New York – 5x the energy density of current lithium ion technology – At 1/5 the cost – Within 5 years 6
  7. 7. Recent Energy Storage Developments in the US • FERC order 755 – Frequency Regulation, market pays more for the best:  Speed – storage responds in seconds  Accuracy – typically 98+% accurate – One large (32MW) energy storage installation in the PJM area displaces 70-80MW of traditional spinning reserve.  Usable band  Doesn’t require base loading, can stand-by idle 7
  8. 8. Recent Energy Storage Developments in the US • Lack a cohesive National policy – Rules change:  By state  By Independent system operator – NE-ISO recently asked to delay opening their market to Energy storage (FERC 755) until January 1, 2015 – NY-ISO use of each resource’s six-second Regulation Movement Response Rate  By Public Utilities commission “It’s no coincidence that our facility is located in New York, a competitive market. By providing clear market tariffs for different technology solutions, competitive electricity markets level the playing field and drive innovation.” -- Beacon Power Director of Corporate Communications, Gene Hunt 8
  9. 9. Recent Energy Storage Developments in the US • California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) ordered Southern California Edison (SCE) to install 50MW of Energy Storage in the Los Angeles Basin • The CPUC ordered an additional total of 1300MW of capacity be procured from preferred resources – including energy storage. • This action has already spurned a call for energy storage proposals in multiple locations in California 9
  10. 10. California PUC recently released order A Total of 1.325GW 10
  11. 11. Conclusions • Storage can make a big contribution to the development of our changing network. • However, it is important that the right Market Mechanisms are in place to support this. • Storage costs will come down. • But we do need to consider the impact on total system savings. • The answer is not always to put more copper in the ground!!! 11
