The North American energy storage community convened in Pasadena, CA earlier this month for ESNA’s annual conference and expo. Around 2,000 speakers and attendees were in California for two days of networking events, briefings, site tours and a trade exhibition. The event covered all aspects of energy storage – and the electrification of transportation networks – in North America. Voltility was among those who travelled to California and here are our 10 key market take-outs.
The two projects include what is claimed to be the UK’s largest behind-the-meter battery to date.
The project is using a vanadium redox flow and lithium ion hybrid system to store and dispatch renewable energy.
CM payments are suspended but BEIS is moving quickly to find a way forward.
Massachusetts has a 1,000MWh energy storage target by 2025.
Migrating fleets of traditional vehicles to electric ones is gathering pace as this project demonstrates.
Announced in February 2018, the project is one of the largest in the UK.
The deal is with two California Community Choice Aggregators.
The battery will provide fast response storage to Australia’s National Energy Market.
