Honeywell to provide 20MW energy storage for solar park in New Mexico


Technology group Honeywell’s energy storage solutions arm will supply a 20MW/80MWh battery system for renewables group Hecate Energy’s solar farm in New Mexico, USA.

NASDAQ-listed Honeywell will deliver the battery energy storage system (BESS) combined with its energy management system (EMS), the Experion Energy Control System to the PNM Solar Direct solar farm. It will be a lithium-ion system, the company told

The combined platform will allow for asset monitoring and distributed energy resource management allowing Hecate to optimise energy costs at the 50MW solar farm, which is located on the Jicarilla Apache Nation, north of Albuquerque, and set to open in late 2022. The city is subscribing to 25MW or half of the site’s solar off-take.

Honeywell says it is providing outcome-based guarantees around cost, uptime and revenue stacking abilities including peak shaving, backup power and demand response programs.

Honeywell is a Fortune 100 technology group whose four main segments are aerospace, building technologies, performance materials and technologies, and safety and productivity solutions. Energy storage is currently a negligible part of the company’s top line of US$34.3 billion but it has made deep inroads into the sector since entering in 2019 with clear ambitions to expand.

It has a pipeline of 300-400MW behind-the-meter storage with Canadian developer NRStor and supplied equipment for Ukraine’s first grid-scale BESS.

It has also launched its own unique 12-hour flow battery product. The company’s Sustainable Technology Solutions (Honeywell STS) vice president previously told that long duration flow batteries were a natural fit for its experience in more conventional power sectors.

Hecate Energy is a developer of solar power plants, wind power plants, and energy storage solutions. It has a 40GW-plus development pipeline of projects. Of the 25.2GW spelt out on its website, 7GW is storage, 17.1GW is solar and 1.1GW is solar and storage.
