The U.K.'s December capacity market T-4 auction took place at the center of a perfect storm for energy storage. Factors including 15-year contracted revenue, the ability to stack value streams with enhanced frequency response contracts, and requirements for only 30 minutes of committed capacity combined to drive a remarkable success for storage -- resulting in 500 megawatts of new-build energy storage clearing the auction. In a new report, GTM Research modeled out the lifetime project...

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon (seemingly unwittingly) gave an interview this week in which he said America is locked in "an economic war with China." Bannon mentioned arcane sections of the 1974 Trade Act to penalize China for alleged steel and aluminum dumping. Could solar be on the list, too? Bannon's comments suggest he's also paying attention to Section 201 of the trade act -- which is the foundation of Suniva and SolarWorld’s case for slapping severe penalties on imported...

Batteries have been beating expectations in recent years as costs continue to fall. That's good news for the storage industry, but reveals a shortcoming in the scientific understanding of the trend. That discrepancy prompted UC Berkeley professor Daniel Kammen to devise a new model, recently published in Nature Energy -- and it ended up predicting that future cost declines will occur at a pace faster than identified in previous analyses. Scholars have modeled clean-energy cost declines...

As the autonomous car evolves, automakers face a complex question: How to enable self-driving cars to process massive amounts of data and then come to logical and safe conclusions about it. Today, most automakers accomplish that with a distributed form of data processing. That is, they place intelligence at the sensors. More recently, though, that’s begun to change. Many engineers now favor a more centralized form of data processing, in which simple sensors send raw unprocessed data to a...
