Green Energy Production and Storage

The twin imperatives of greenhouse gas reduction and energy independence have created a huge resurgence in renewable energy technology and development. Across the nation government and regulatory agencies are instituting renewable portfolio standards (RPS) as targets for development of renewable energy resources. Financial incentives such are feed-in tariffs and production tax credits are either in place or under development to help provide a stable financial environment to ensure capital recovery for renewable energy developers. Similar efforts are underway worldwide.

Wind, photovoltaic solar, solar concentrator, geothermal and tidal energy recovery are among a host of technologies entering the market. Each has unique characteristics that must be recognized and accommodated by utilities, regulatory agencies, system operators and energy markets.

In parallel with the development of renewable energy resources, storage technologies such as battery storage facilities, compressed air, thermal storage and other technologies promise to complement renewable energy technologies by smoothing out some of the inherent variations in energy production from most renewable energy technologies. Storage technologies provide other system benefits in their own right, such as the potential for enhanced system reliability and control.
