A 100 MW solar and storage plant in South Africa has generated its first power to the national grid.

The International Energy Agency published its World Energy Outlook this week, its annual effort at revising assessments of future demand for and supply of fuels and electricity. There’s a familiar theme within it: The IEA expects more renewable-energy use in the future than it did in last year’s outlook, which was more than it forecast in the 2016 outlook. There’s also something noteworthy on transportation: The IEA is calling the top on oil demand from cars.

PG&E Corp. plans to replace three natural gas-fired power plants in California with battery-storage systems as the state continues its push to squeeze fossil fuels out of the electricity mix.
When two battery companies with almost 100-year histories combine, the result is one huge battery player, ready to meet the growing demand for energy storage solutions. That’s the idea at least behind Trojan Battery Company’s announcement last week that it is being acquired by C&D Technologies.
A 40-year-old law that’s been key to the growth of renewable energy in the U.S. may be due for an overhaul.

Duke is focused on emissions reduction by retiring coal-fired plants, increasing nuclear generation capacity and has add close to 650 MW of built or purchased solar energy.
