Philippines’ investor-owned utility AboitizPower and Norwegian renewables group Scatec have signed a EPC agreement with Hitachi Energy for it to build a 20MW/20MWh battery storage system, set to go online in 2024.
As energy system modernisation and decarbonisation progresses, energy storage could represent between 10% and 25% of India’s total installed power capacity by 2050, while other countries in South Asia including Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan also have “significant opportunities” for energy storage.
New York Power Authority (NYPA) said on the release of its strategic plan VISION2030 in December that it wants to lead by example with a commitment to cost-effective clean energy that could see NYPA reach emissions-free electricity by 2035.

Greenko said that it will be helped along with plans to build multiple gigawatts of renewable energy plants alongside energy storage in India by an investment from Tokyo-headquartered ORIX Corporation.
Microgrid projects on three different continents that include multiple megawatts of battery storage alongside renewable energy have been announced in the past few days from well-known industry players.
Cordova, Alaska, is isolated from the grid, but fortunate to be blessed with hydropower resources – and now a 1MWh battery storage system will help this coastal Arctic community increase its self-reliance in a “harsh and unforgiving climate”.
