New York's 'Reforming the Energy Vision' just got a little bit clearer
Renewable Energy World
Nearly a year ago, the New York Public Service Commission (Commission) initiated a groundbreaking effort, called 'Reforming the Energy Vision' (REV), to overhaul the longstanding electric utility business model. In the months since starting the REV proceeding, the Commission has sought advice from Department of Public Service staff, industry stakeholders, and environmental non-profits, among others, quietly refining its vision while largely refraining from big pronouncements about the progress of the proceeding.

Smaller, cheaper flow battery's energy density helps the grid power large cities
PV Buzz
Ensuring the power grid keeps the lights on in large cities could be easier with a new battery design that packs far more energy than any other battery of its kind and size. The new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery, described in Nature Communications, uses an electrolyte that has more than two times the energy density of the next-best flow battery used to store renewable energy and support the power grid.

Solar, wind power aid unprecedented halt in global emissions
Renew Economy
The International Energy Agency has hailed a "surprising" and "unprecedented" halt in the rise of global carbon dioxide emissions — an event it directly credits to the growth in solar and wind power, increased hydro, and the decline in coal-fired generation. The IEA says global CO2 emissions stood at 32.3 billion tonnes in 2014, unchanged from the preceding year, despite a 3 per cent increase in global economic growth.
