Also on the rise: Why solar assets are underperforming expectations by 8%. Ikea bets on Meyer Burger’s heterojunction solar modules. And more.
More large-scale solar is likely on the way for Utah, as the Federal Energy Act of 2020 aims to deploy 25 GW of solar, wind, and geothermal production on public lands no later than 2025. One of the first land areas that was vetted for this development is in Utah.
The transmission project is being upgraded to allow for the replacement of a legacy coal-fired generation facility with an 840 MW green hydrogen electrolyzer and energy storage facility set to enter operations by 2026.
The new rooftop arrays will bring storage center operator Extra Space’s cumulative renewable energy portfolio to 15 MW of installed capacity.
In 2022, as supply chain challenges persisted, utility solar projects in development grew in size and energy storage is connected to half of them.
ABF and Anovion were recent recipients of federal grant funding from the Department of Energy, which awarded $2.8 billion to advanced materials companies that have begun to source battery material components from new and recycled materials using lithium, graphite and other materials sourced in North America.
Appaloosa Solar 1 sits adjacent to one of Utah’s earliest utility-scale solar projects, the 80 MW Three Peaks Solar facility.
ES Solar and sonnen are leading the expansion of Rocky Mountain Power’s Wattsmart Battery Program across Utah and Idaho.
Mitsubishi Power Americas and Magnum Development are set to begin construction on a 300 GWh underground storage facility in Utah. It will consist of two caverns with capacities of 150 GWh, to store hydrogen generated by an adjacent 840 MW hydrogen-capable gas turbine combined cycle power plant.
The largest clean storage facility in the world will create jobs, deploy clean energy, and replace a retiring coal-fired power plant.
