A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • A 10 MW energy storage facility is being built just north of Austin, Texas, in Williamson County. This energy storage facility will be built from racks of lithium ion batteries inside of climate-controlled shipping containers to store energy generated during the day by wind and/or solar electricity sources. Alevo Group and Ormat Technologies will own and operate the facility.

In 2015, Scotland’s renewable electricity generation increased by almost 16 percent from the previous year.
