'FOSSILS' DAYS ARE NUMBERED' AS FERC CLEARS BATTERIES TO COMPETE WITH POWER PLANTS

“‘We’re reaching an inflection point,” agreed venture capitalist Steve Westly, former controller and chief fiscal officer for the state of California. “In the future, people will talk about energy in terms of kilowatts per hour instead of oil per barrels.”

“The question is no longer if batteries will disrupt the power sector, but rather how much and how fast?” wrote CERAWeek organizers IHS Markit in one session description.

The rise of durable, energy-dense, easy-to-charge lithium ion batteries have prompted predictions that electric vehicles will outsell internal combustion cars by 2040. “Now the batteries’ advance into power markets threatens the reign of natural gas, which at the moment generates about a third of U.S. electricity,” notes Bloomberg correspondent Mark Chediak. “In California and Arizona, utilities including PG&E Corporation and Pinnacle West Capital Corporation are abandoning gas plants in favor of renewable energy projects. These solar and wind farms can now use energy storage systems to stash their power and unleash it as needed.”

“Batteries are like bacon,” said Vibhu Kaushik, Southern California Edison’s director of grid technology and modernization. “They just make everything better.”

One Simple Chart Shows Why An Energy Revolution Is Coming - And Who Is Likely To Come Out On Top


The cost of producing solar power is rapidly declining: it now costs $50 to produce one megawatt-hour of solar power, according to a new analysis.

Coal, on the other hand, costs $102 per megawatt-hour to produce.

This recent change could be a sign that the world is on the verge of an energy revolution.

The cost of solar power is decreasing so rapidly, it's now cheaper than coal, based on a new analysis.

A recent report from Lazard shows how the costs of producing electricity from various sources are changing. Energy from utility-scale solar plants — plants that produce electricity that feeds into the grid — has seen the biggest price drop: an 86% decrease since 2009.

The cost of producing one megawatt-hour of electricity — a standard way to measure electricity production — is now around $50 for solar power, according to Lazard's math. The cost of producing one megawatt-hour of electricity from coal, by comparison, is $102 — more than double the cost of solar.
