Commerce宣布獲得10.6萬美元的州清潔能源基金撥款用於電網現代化

  • 四月16日, 2019

四個公用事業項目將推動華盛頓州在清潔和可再生能源技術創新方面的領先工作,以建設更高效,更具彈性和經濟的電網。 

華盛頓州奧林匹亞– 華盛頓州商務部 已選擇了四個擬議的電網現代化項目,以接受華盛頓清潔能源基金的撥款。 在等待最終合同之前,Avista,Orcas Power and Light,Puget Sound Energy和Tacoma Power有資格獲得總計10.6萬美元的州基金。 個人贈款從$ 1到$ 3百萬不等,贈款必須由公用事業公司及其項目合作夥伴以最小的一對一比例匹配。

“Washington's leading utilities, along with their technology partners and customers, are transforming the nation's electric grid.華盛頓的領先公用事業公司及其技術合作夥伴和客戶正在改變美國的電網。 With these latest grants, our state Clean Energy Fund helps them move the industry closer to a low-carbon future,” said通過這些最新的贈款,我們的國家清潔能源基金幫助他們將行業推向了低碳未來。” 州長傑伊·因斯利,於2013年創立了該基金。

商務部長說:“清潔能源基金的投資創造了商機和就業機會,增強了全州的社區實力。” 莉薩·布朗。 “這些贈款有助於推動技術和系統的發展,這些技術和系統將最終使我們的電網更高效,更靈活,更經濟地運行,在緊急情況下更可靠,更具彈性。”

Customer participation is essential to the next steps in grid modernization efforts by Washington's public and private utilities.客戶的參與對於華盛頓的公共和私人公用事業的電網現代化工作的下一步至關重要。 The existing grid system has been built to handle peak loads so that power is available all the time – “on-demand.”現有的電網系統已構建為可以處理峰值負載,因此可以始終“按需”供電。 This is neither efficient nor cost-effective because it leaves expensive power generation plants and transmission infrastructure underused during off-peak times or isolated areas out of power in emergencies.這既沒有效率,也沒有成本效益,因為這會使非高峰時段的昂貴發電廠和輸電基礎設施的使用不足,或者在緊急情況下使偏遠地區的電力無法使用。 These projects will use technology to find other ways for the system to meet customer demand in a reliable and cost-effective way.這些項目將使用技術為系統尋找其他方式,以可靠且經濟高效的方式滿足客戶需求。 More specific details will be announced as contracts are executed for each project.在為每個項目執行合同時,將宣布更多具體細節。

項目概要

  • 阿維斯塔 Avista的共享能源經濟試驗允許建築物共享能量資源,以更有效地產生和使用能源,並存儲建築物產生的多餘能量供將來使用。 This Clean Energy Fund grant will support further evaluation of this and other similar grid utilization strategies.清潔能源基金的這筆贈款將支持對該方法和其他類似電網利用策略的進一步評估。 It expands on a separate solar plus microgrid research, development and demonstration project funded in part with a $150,000 million grant in 3.5. The new work will assess how this cluster of buildings performs and what infrastructure will be needed for these types of developments in the future.它擴展了一個單獨的太陽能加微電網研究,開發和示範項目,部分項目在2017年獲得了XNUMX萬美元的資助。這項新工作將評估這棟建築的性能,以及未來這類開發需要的基礎設施。
  • 逆戟鯨力量與光明 (OPALCO)建議開發一種混合動力儲能係統,結合最新的開關裝置,該系統將使用流量(更長的持續時間)和鋰離子(響應速度更快)電池技術的混合物,以提供快速響應和壽命長,成本適中。 A prior community solar project enabled with a $1 million grant from the Clean Energy Fund in 2017 was used to demonstrate a similar microgrid application on remote Decatur Island.先前的社區太陽能項目在XNUMX年獲得了清潔能源基金的XNUMX萬美元資助,用於在偏遠的迪凱特島上演示類似的微電網應用。 The new project will be co-located with a community solar project (separately funded) near the Lopez Island town center, providing opportunities for customers to participate in new service programs around green energy.新項目將與洛佩茲島市中心附近的社區太陽能項目(由資金資助)位於同一地點,為客戶提供參與綠色能源新服務計劃的機會。 Additionally, OPALCO seeks to maximize economic benefit to the community and will look at a variety of other uses, including back-up power to improve outage response.此外,OPALCO尋求最大程度地為社區帶來經濟利益,並將研究各種其他用途,包括用於改善停電響應的備用電源。
  • 普吉特海灣能源 PSE的Blumauer變電站將成為PSE服務區內首個公用事業規模的太陽能加儲能微電網項目的所在地。 PSE將與Tenino學區合作,使用太陽能以及新的能源存儲和客戶負載控制,以提高Tenino高中的可靠性和彈性。 Another battery will also be installed at the end of a distribution feeder line in the rural community, which will enable the demonstration of reliability improvement.在農村社區的配電饋線的末端還將安裝另一個電池,這將有助於提高可靠性。 With funding from a Clean Energy Funds grant, PSE previously deployed a battery energy storage solution to provide a variety of grid support services including back-up power to customers in the rural community of Glacier, near Mt.在清潔能源基金贈款的資助下,PSE先前部署了電池儲能解決方案,以提供各種電網支持服務,包括為靠近山的Glacier農村社區的客戶提供備用電源。 Baker.貝克。
  • 塔科馬力量 proposes partnering with a large industrial customer, to construct an 850,000-gallon liquid nitrogen storage tank for use as liquid air energy storage.建議與一個大型工業客戶合作,建造一個15加侖的液氮儲罐,用作液體空氣儲能。 It will have equivalent large capacity for a 450 megawatt/XNUMX megawatt hour demand response.它將具有相當於XNUMX兆瓦/ XNUMX兆瓦時的需求響應的大容量。 Combined with automation and control strategies, the liquefied air tank will benefit both the company and Tacoma Power by unlocking new ways to deliver the consistent, reliable, high power loads needed.結合自動化和控制策略,液化氣罐將通過開闢新方法來交付所需的一致,可靠,高功率負載,從而使公司和塔科馬電力公司受益。 This type of thermal energy storage system can provide many economic and grid benefits for utilities and their industrial customers.這種類型的熱能存儲系統可以為公用事業及其工業客戶提供許多經濟和電網利益。

Washington's Clean Energy Fund programs support the development, demonstration and deployment of clean and renewable energy technology, including helping utilities successfully demonstrate and evaluate different types of energy storage systems on the grid.華盛頓的清潔能源基金計劃支持清潔和可再生能源技術的開發,演示和部署,包括幫助公用事業公司成功演示和評估電網上不同類型的儲能係統。 This new set of grid modernization projects shifts to studying different ways to get energy from storage and intermittent sources to where and when the customer needs it.這套新的電網現代化項目轉移到研究從存儲和間歇性能源中獲取能源的不同方法,到客戶需要的時間和地點。

Since 2013, the Clean Energy Fund has encouraged public-private partnerships to invest in a diverse range of projects, leading the way in electrical grid modernization.自XNUMX年以來,清潔能源基金一直鼓勵公私合作夥伴關係投資各種項目,從而引領電網現代化。 From different battery chemistry to energy storage to microgrids and solar, Clean Energy Fund project data and business case analyses are transforming how utilities and communities view energy systems and resilience.從不同的電池化學到能量存儲再到微電網和太陽能,清潔能源基金的項目數據和業務案例分析正在改變公用事業和社區如何看待能源系統和彈性。
