2021 Photovoltaic & BESS Projects
- Jun 22, 2021 2:50 pm GMT
It has been over a year since I posted the last paper similar to this one. This paper looks at large photovoltaic, photovoltaic plus storage and storage projects. This paper is limited to projects in the U.S. that are at least 100 MW and that are either recently completed, under construction or planned to be complete by 2024.
The number of projects that fit the above criteria has grown by 80% in this paper vs. the 2020 paper. There also seems to be quite a bit more geographic diversity for this post, with major projects in 15 states, and many more in the Midwest and Southeast. This paper is also much longer than I prefer (over 5,000 words), but this was necessary to describe relevant details for each project.
As I started considering the IEEE Spectrum article used as a source for a future article, I found a lot to like. First of all, it described in detail the changes we (our societies) must make to implement Electric Vehicles, but also explored the..
Large battery energy storage systems (BESS) are not really generation systems, but they can strongly optimize many generation systems including intermittent renewables like photovoltaic (PV) and wind turbines. It is also not transmission, but can..
Scotland is a key market for RWE. We have 1O onshore wind farms, 14 hydro power stations, one offshore wind farm and a strong pipeline of development projects. We are fully committed to helping Scotland achieve its ambitious climate change..
