Hydrogen Rising Podcast: Very Long Duration Storage

Bill Holmes, Mike O’Neill, and David Wochner discuss very long duration storage and impacts on hydrogen and broader energy markets, as well as U.S. regulatory structures impacting hydrogen storage.

You can also listen to and download the latest episodes of Hydrogen Rising on Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts.

K&L Gates’ Energy Storage Handbook: Volume 6

Now Available Online!

As a courtesy to our clients and friends, the K&L Gates Power practice has updated the Energy Storage Handbook.

This Energy Storage Handbook is designed to be a basic primer on what energy storage is, how federal and state governments regulate it, and what sorts of issues are encountered when such projects are financed and developed. While this Handbook is not meant to be a definitive catalog of every energy storage law and issue existing in today’s marketplace, we have endeavored to highlight the most common development and regulatory matters our clients face and the industries we serve. We will continue to update this Handbook periodically as additional states and stakeholders continue to address the implementation of energy storage resources in the marketplace.

We hope you find it useful and welcome your feedback.

New in Volume 6:

  • Completely refreshed FERC and ISO/RTO sections, including FERC Order 2222.
  • Hydrogen storage? It’s getting close.
  • Avoiding disputes in battery supply agreements.
  • New states, including Virginia and South Carolina.
  • The latest with PJM’s capacity rules.

The Energizer – Volume 77

By: Buck B. Endemann, Daniel S. Cohen, Molly K. Barker, Olivia B. Mora, Abraham F. Johns, Natalie J. Reid, Matthew P. Clark

A biweekly update on clean technology applications, distributed energy resources, and other innovative technologies in the renewable energy and clean transport sector.

There is a lot of buzz around cleantech, distributed energy resources (“DERs”), microgrids, and other technological innovations in the renewable energy and clean transport industries. As these innovations develop, energy markets will undergo substantial changes to which consumer and industry participants alike will need to adapt and leverage. Every other week, K&L Gates’ The Energizer will highlight emerging issues or stories relating to the use of DERs, energy storage, emerging technologies, hydrogen, and other innovations driving the energy and clean transportation industries forward.

IN THIS ISSUE:

  • Facebook and Carnegie Mellon Partner to Use AI for Storage Solutions
  • EPA Proposes Draft Rule Limiting Coal Plant Emissions
  • American Corporate Renewable Procurements Jump by 45% in 2020
  • Californian Community Choice Aggregators Lead the Way on Long-Duration Storage

Eye on the Election: Potential Impact on Tax Incentives for Power and Related Industries

Authors: Elizabeth C. Crouse, Mary Burke Baker, Jared D. Mobley, Joel D. Almquist, and Lauren M. Flynn

There is little doubt that the outcome of the 3 November federal election will be consequential for much of America, and that the consequences are likely to be very different depending on who sits in the Oval Office and the Senate after the inauguration. Of all the industries that employ Americans, the power and related industries such as oil and gas, carbon capture, and electric vehicles may experience the starkest consequences.

FERC to Convene Technical Conference on Generation Resources Paired with Energy Storage

By William H. Holmes, William M. Keyser, Michael L. O’Neill

On April 7, 2020, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) announced that its staff will host a technical conference in July 2020 to discuss so-called “hybrid resources.”  In its notice, FERC explained that it is using the term “hybrid resources” to refer to projects that are comprised of more than one resource type at the same plant location.  For this summer’s technical conversation, FERC states that it will focus on scenarios where a “generation resource and an electric storage resource [are] paired together as a hybrid resource.”
