FlexGen Power Systems will provide 2.1GWh of battery storage solutions to a project in California which exemplifies the state’s “leadership” in the transition to a modern, cleaner grid, the company’s CEO has said.
Q CELLS has acquired a utility-scale battery energy storage system (BESS) project under development in Texas, marking the vertically-integrated solar PV and smart energy solutions company’s first standalone BESS project.
Two 100MW battery energy storage system (BESS) projects in Texas have been brought online by independent power producer (IPP) Broad Reach Power, for participation in the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market.
GridBeyond is to optimise Greencoat Renewables’s first energy storage project. This 10.8MW front-of-the-meter battery is co-located with the Killala Community Wind Farm in Tawnaghmore Upper, Ireland and is expected to be online early next year.
Tesla’s planned launch of a retail electricity offering to existing customers within the ERCOT service area in Texas will lean heavily on battery storage as well as solar for its expertise, assets and routes to market.
Texas’ ERCOT market has been one of the US’ fastest-growing regions for renewable energy, but recent weather-driven events have made it clear that more needs to be done to ensure electricity system reliability. The answers are already here, affordable and practical, argues Wayne Muncaster, vice-president at commercial demand response platform technology group GridBeyond.
Funding has been raised towards the execution of two battery energy storage projects in Virginia and Texas with a total capacity of 400MW / 1,400MWh, from a partnership of two investment groups and a power project development company.
