California will expand the promote renewable energy use - battery-Power Kingdom
On August 12, according to foreign media reports, the footsteps of the pursuit of green help solar and wind power industry to obtain root, California put forward rapidly increase the adoption of the battery and accelerating the use of renewable energy.
Solar and wind power intensity fluctuation is very big, so the power reserve and power supply on the basis of battery becomes developing direction.

We can't simply rely on the sun, we must be sunshine into the bottle.
California battery plan as expanding renewable energy act, the state proposed to California in 2020 a third of the power supply will be renewable energy.
This proposal has inspired a wave of science and technology competition, to begin to participate in the competition including venture capitalist Peter & middot;
And vinod & middot;

And Microsoft founder bill & middot;
To promote renewable energy storage battery using action not only occurred in California, Germany is the pioneer in this field.
In the United States, funding has supported the related project in states such as New York and Texas.
And California renewable energy target is actively, hopes to achieve 1 to 2020 energy storage.
3 gw, that is able to supply 1 million households demand of traditional power plant capacity.
American institutions Lux Research analyst Steve & middot;
Of California, said the proposal was the first legislation, it will produce immediate and permanent effect on the electric energy storage market.
Minneapolis khan, the installation of renewable energy by 2017 is expected to amount value will reach $10. 4 billion, and $200 million last year.
Energy storage compared to establish gas plant many expensive, the establishment of the energy storage projects have been relying on government subsidies.
In addition, the energy storage there are risks in technology.

Said, the taxpayer will have to make a huge investment, installing such storage facilities cost between $1 billion and $3 billion.
Favour say, taxpayers will benefit from it, because energy storage for utilities to avoid to build power plants and transmission network to adapt to peak demand.
California's regulators transmission network, the report said if considering all of the benefit, energy storage cost value.
However, in the field of solar manufacturing, energy storage enterprises was having a difficult time of, because the cost is difficult to come down and the breakthrough of technology there is a problem.
Energy storage equipment maker A123 Systems and Beacon Power LLC after get support for the department of energy (doe) has filed for bankruptcy.
The two companies under the new ownership structure are restructured.

Said the large-scale energy storage transmission will come true sooner or later, it's only a matter of time.
He also said the California battery using plan for those who really until now is still in the start-up of hard opened the door of the development.

Minneapolis khan, said the real impact of this plan, California will happen in 2020 and 2030, a move expected to be intense other states to adopt the corresponding measures.
