• Hybrid power approaches are becoming increasingly important for the generation and storage of clean, renewable energy;
• The Voith Hydro Holding GmbH & Co. KG and the Siemens Energy Management Division sign Letter of Intent for collaboration in appropriate hybrid power projects containing hydropower;
• Starting point of the collaboration will be the integration of hydropower into Siemens’ power simulation system.

During Europe’s largest hydropower industry event, the Division Hydro of Voith and the Siemens Energy Management Division announced their cooperation to drive forward hybrid power concepts including hydropower.

The motto of this year’s HYDRO 2018 conference and exhibition could not have been better: Progress through partnerships. The well-known hydropower event was the 25th in organizer Aqua Media’s series of events hosted in Europe, and once again was one of the most international gatherings of the year. Voith showcased and exhibited its latest technology, products, and services. Voith employees also enriched the conference program as keynote speakers. In total, visitors from around 80 countries participated, exchanging experience on current challenges and recent achievements.

One such achievement is the innovative collaboration of Voith and Siemens, which intend to broaden their relationship by defining potential forms of collaboration for appropriate hybrid power projects containing hydropower.

Hydropower plays a key role in sustainable and environmentally friendly power generation and is the leading renewable source of electricity generation globally. Worldwide it makes an indispensable contribution to a stable power supply and thus to economic and social development both in industrialized countries and in regions seeing strong growth.

As energy consumption is rapidly increasing, it is becoming harder to keep energy production and consumption in balance at all times. As multi-functional power plants, pumped storage facilities have a high potential to meet this challenge as their technology is based on the only long-term, technically proven, and cost-effective form of storing energy on a large scale. Combining wind mills and/or solar farms with a pumped storage plant ensures that the energy generated is immediately and reliably stored when it cannot be directly fed into the power grid. Such hybrid power approaches are becoming increasingly important given that the shift from centralized to decentralized power systems remains an ongoing mega trend globally.

Since the early days of hydropower exploitation, Voith has been a leading supplier of this technology and is constantly refining and improving it. With the combination of this extensive hydropower expertise and Siemens’ know-how related to various energy generation, storage, and distribution systems, both companies are committed to driving forward the idea and conceptualization of hybrid power approaches. Siemens is a minority shareholder in the Division Hydro of Voith (Voith Siemens Hydro Power Generation GmbH & Co. KG), the long-standing joint venture between Siemens AG and Voith Hydro Holding GmbH & Co. KG.

The starting point of the extended collaboration will be the integration of hydropower in one of Siemens’ power system simulation software tools. The Siemens software tool landscape provides power system planners and operators with solutions for simulating, analyzing, modeling, and creating digital twins of transmission, distribution and industrial power systems. In a first step, both companies will focus on an integrated approach to evaluate the technical feasibility of hybrid concepts containing hydropower, taking into account economic expectations. In this way they will support decision makers and ensure profitable business development based on technical as well as economical simulations and iterative optimizations using various power generation sources and energy storage options (such as hydropower, wind, solar, battery storage).

Markus Rieck, Chief Sales Officer (CSO) of the Division Hydro of Voith, said: “Accurate and efficient power system analysis that considers technical, regulatory and economic industry requirements as well as security of supply is essential for the utilities of the future and all independent power producers. We are looking forward to contributing our hydropower expertise.”

Dr. Gerrit Lange, Sales Director for Power OEMs and Renewables at the Siemens Energy Management Division, complements: “Adding specific forms of hydropower as a renewable source of energy and storage option to our simulation ecosystem will be very beneficial for our customers because we thereby reflect an even larger portfolio. This will be another step on our way to provide comprehensive solutions for the growing needs of hybrid power applications for distributed energy systems.”

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of St. Louis and Ygrene, a national leader in energy efficiency and renewable financing, celebrated on October 5th five years since the launch of "Set the PACE St. Louis," (www.setthepacestlouis.com) a comprehensive, privately-funded energy financing program for both residential and commercial buildings. Known as PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy), the program has now become a national model, expanding to over 500 cities and counties across the U.S.

"Through Set the PACE St. Louis and our partnership with Ygrene, our city has shown that good public policy can create jobs, save residents money, and help leave a safer, cleaner planet to our children," said City of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson. "I'm proud to say that we've delivered more than $28 million in private financing for energy efficiency and renewable projects that have created more than 400 good-paying jobs without increases in public spending. That's the type of successful public-private partnership that is helping St. Louis lead the nation in innovative programs to the benefit our City."

The inaugural project, financed through Set the PACE on November 1, 2013, installed solar rooftop panels at Four Muddy Paws in historic Lafayette Square, location of the city's oldest public park. Since then, the program has funded more than 100 energy efficiency and renewable projects and abated more than 34,000 metric tons of carbon pollution. In addition, Set the PACE St. Louis has helped property owners lower their energy bills, representing $57 million in utility bill savings. Other notable projects include a two-and-half million-dollar comprehensive energy retrofit on the iconic Missouri Athletic Club, and a $10 million PACE project for the new, boutique 146-room Angad Arts Hotel in the Grand Arts Center District. The St. Louis Development Corporation, led by Otis Williams, has hosted the program's all-volunteer governing board since inception.  

In May 2017, Set the PACE St. Louis launched Ygrene's award-winning residential PACE program with Missouri as one of only three states in the U.S. currently operating residential PACE clean-energy programs. Homeowners throughout the City of St. Louis — in North and South City — have now taken advantage of this innovative financing tool.

"Set the PACE St. Louis has become a national model for PACE partnerships," said Ygrene Senior Vice-President Mike Lemyre. "Ygrene's focus on local government priorities has helped cities like St. Louis boost economic development without spending public dollars. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the City of St. Louis and expanding PACE's footprint across the country as a win-win for policymakers and property owners."

PACE continues to represent one of the best examples of a public – private partnership, designed to promote choice, allow homeowners to upgrade their home and generate local jobs. To date, Ygrene has provided over $1 billion of private capital to more than 500 local communities, creating thousands of jobs and investing millions into local economies across the U.S.

Ygrene's PACE programming is helping communities across the nation meet their energy efficiency and resiliency goals. The full list of jurisdictions where Ygrene's PACE system has been approved can be found here.

Latest Recognition of the Company’s Environmental, Social and Governance Efforts

"Our inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index list for 11 straight years validates our efforts to provide a sustainable future for the customers and communities we serve"

(Oct. 18, 2018 – Newark, N.J.) Public Service Enterprise Group’s recent inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America for the 11th year in a row is the latest confirmation of the company’s commitment to sustainable and ethical practices. Customers, employees and investors are increasingly demanding that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors guide how a company conducts business.

 The DJSI recognizes forward-thinking companies based on an appraisal of the company’s strategy, management and performance in dealing with opportunities and risks deriving from environmental, social and governance factors. The DJSI tracks the performance of the 600 largest U.S. and Canadian companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index and recognizes the top 20 percent that lead the field in terms of sustainability. PSEG was one of six U.S. utility companies selected for the list.

 “Our inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index list for 11 straight years validates our efforts to provide a sustainable future for the customers and communities we serve,” said Ralph Izzo, PSEG’s chairman, president and CEO. “Sustainability is at the center of PSEG’s vision and operations, driving innovation and investment as we move toward a clean energy future. This recognition reflects the dedication of PSEG’s 13,000 employees to continuously pursue more sustainable ways to provide clean, affordable and reliable energy.”

 The DJSI assessment is conducted each year by sustainability investment specialist RobecoSAM. It is based on a comprehensive review of environmental performance, innovation management, corporate governance, risk management, stakeholder engagement, and talent attraction and retention.

Additional Recognition

PSEG’s dedication to ESG practices has been acknowledged by a range of independent organizations:

In addition to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, PSEG was also named to the America’s Best Employers List by Forbes magazine for 2018. Forbes worked with research firm Statista to compile the definitive list of the best employers in America. Statista surveyed 30,000 American workers to gather opinions of their employers.

PSEG was included on FORTUNE’s 2017 List of Most Admired Companies, ranking 8th among electric and gas companies in the United States.

Public Service Electric & Gas Co. (PSE&G) also was named 2017 Investor Owned Utility of the Year by the Smart Electric Power Alliance for its efforts to add solar power to New Jersey’s energy mix. PSE&G was recognized for building solar farms on landfills and brownfields through its Solar 4 All program.

Moving Forward to a Sustainable Energy Future

As an example of the company’s commitment to providing sustainable energy, PSE&G recently proposed a Clean Energy Future program. The proposal includes energy efficiency, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, battery storage and smart meter initiatives. If approved as proposed, the programs are expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 40 million tons over the lifetime of the programs, equivalent to removing about 380,000 cars annually by 2025, growing to about 800,000 cars annually by 2035. The centerpiece of the proposal is a suite of energy efficiency programs, which would save enough electricity to power 5.5 million homes annually and save enough natural gas to supply 675,000 homes per year.

To better serve its customers and investors, PSEG will be incorporating the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) Version 1 environmental, social, governance and sustainability-related (ESG/sustainability) reporting template into its annual ESG reporting. This is part of an ongoing EEI-led initiative to help provide the financial community with more uniform and consistent ESG/sustainability data and information. EEI launched a pilot ESG/sustainability reporting template in December 2017.
