    QUICK NEWS, October 21: NEBRASKA UTILITY IN BIG WIND BUY; V2G AND PLUG IN CARS AS ENERGY STORAGE; THE VALUE OF THE SMART GRID QUANTIFIED

    NEBRASKA UTILITY IN BIG WIND BUY OPPD Announces Wind Energy Purchase

    October 18, 2013 (KGIN-TVNews)

    “The Omaha Public Power District Board of Directors voted unanimously to purchase 400 megawatts of wind power capacity by the end of 2013 from the Grande Prairie wind farm near O’Neill, Neb…[This] is the largest single investment in wind energy by a Nebraska utility, and will save OPPD customers money while spurring economic development across the state. This purchase puts OPPD on the path to generating 30 percent of its energy from renewable sources by the end of 2015…OPPD estimated that construction costs for the Grande Prairie wind farm will total $700 million, which will provide significant economic development for the local community… and the entire state…OPPD noted that operation of the wind farm would create 15 to 20 permanent jobs…” click here for more

    V2G AND PLUG IN CARS AS ENERGY STORAGE Vehicle to Grid Technologies; V2G Applications for Demand Response, Frequency Regulation, Microgrids, Virtual Power Plants, and Renewable Energy Integration

    4Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    "Vehicle to grid (V2G) technologies…[are] beginning to emerge in revenue-generating applications. The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has been a significant proponent of the technology, investing around $20 million in 2013…[D]emonstrations and pilot projects using fleet vehicles in the United States, several Western European countries, and Japan are beginning to show returns and prove that V2G technologies can serve as effective assets in various grid services…[E]conomies with expected high penetrations of PEVs, like China, are likely to adopt electricity market structures and rules that enable greater opportunities for V2G business models…Increased percentage penetrations of wind and solar in specific countries and regions will create a greater need…Navigant Research forecasts that global V2G frequency regulation revenue will reach $190.7 million by 2022…” click here for more

    THE VALUE OF THE SMART GRID QUANTIFIED Quantified: Smart Grid's Real-World Economic And Environmental Benefits

    Patty Durand, October 14, 2013 (Renew Grid)

    “…[T]he Smart Grid Economic and Environmental Benefits report…is a meta-analysis of research on the actual - rather than hypothetical or forecast - economic, environmental, reliability and customer-choice benefits of various smart grid capabilities…Direct and indirect economic benefits from various capabilities total $89.04 to $154.65 per customer per year…[Smart grid capabilities also reduce] CO2 emissions by 55 lbs. to 592 lbs. per customer per year, equivalent to 1/20th to 3/5th of a barrel of oil per person per year…Smart grid capabilities increase reliability by 25%, or 27.2 minutes of avoided outages per customer per year…” click here for more
