1) FERC warns of much higher power prices this summer, driven largely by uptick in gas prices, which is in turn propelled by LNG exports - currently claiming 12% of U.S. production. 

2) Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium plan to develop a minimum of 65,000 MW of offshore wind by 2030 and 150,000 MW by 2050, with private sector investment at estimated $142 billion. Goal is to accelerate permitting, while expanding regional infrastructure and hydrogen industry.

3) Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signs legislation committing state to fully decarbonizing grid by 2040. 2,100 MW Millstone Nuclear Plant currently supplies 90% of its carbon-free electricity, putting the state today at 65% carbon-free.

4) EV charging company Electrify America to buy 75 MW/225,000 annual MWh to offset the electricity delivered by US charging network, under a 15-year virtual power purchase agreement.

5) Battery co Natron Energy and technology firm, Clarios International undertake strategic investment to mass-produce sodium-ion batteries in existing Michigan lithium ion battery plant by 2023. Natron’s UL-certified batteries are used in critical applications like data centers and telecom, but may find way to grid applications as well. Sodium battery technology is less affected by cost and supply chain issues, but has not yet been widely commercialized. #batteries #offshorewind #energystorage #enegytransition #sustainability #theenergyswitch #LNG #EVs #evcharging
