Eaton and Endurant Energy deploying 150MWh of BESS in New York City


Power management tech company Eaton and developer/IPP Endurant Energy are deploying 150MWh of BESS across 10 projects in New York City.

The battery energy storage system (BESS) projects will provide load relief for buildings and the grid during peak demand periods, and will help the local utility to defer additional investments and upgrades in existing substations.

The projects are being deployed in the Bronx and Staten Island, population-dense parts of the city.

An image provided along with the announcement, above, shows what look like Tesla Megapack grid-scale BESS products being used by Eaton for at least one of the projects.

As well as providing the BESS units, Eaton will provide power system studies and equipment including switchgear, switchboards and transformers.

The announcement didn’t say when the 10 projects will be coming online.

New York State is looking to increase energy storage deployments as part of decarbonising its energy system and reducing dependence on highly polluting gas peaker plants located predominantly lower-income populations.

Several projects were recently approved by state body the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA) including a like-for-like gas turbine replacer, while in January utility New York Power Authority (NYPA) issued a request for information (RFI) for clean energy and storage development opportunities.

The state is targeting 6GW of energy storage online by 2030. However, a handful of fires at lithium-ion BESS projects have affected trust in the technology, we heard at Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit 2024 in March, with a governor-led working group on BESS safety set up in response.

At the time of writing, Europe had had its most successful year in terms of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with a record 7.8GW of renewable energy contracts signed. As we gather in May 2024 for the third edition of the Renewable Energy Revenues Summit, the energy landscape continues to evolve rapidly, influenced by the beating drum of climate change, volatility around power prices and the need to decarbonise power procurement as well as generation.
