    Sumitomo to Operate First Independent Battery Storage System

    Sumitomo Corp. together with Sumitomo Corp. of Americas, are to commence operation of their battery power storage system, Willey Battery Utility, LLC, that they have been constructing in Hamilton County, Ohio, since April. This facility will provide a reliable and stable supply-demand balancing service for the frequency regulation market operated by PJM, the largest independent service operator of wholesale electricity in the U.S. "As a developer of wind and solar power plants which are unavoidably intermittent generation sources, we think it is quite important that we also contribute to the stabilization of power grids through balancing services. Understanding that energy storage service is indispensable for further penetration of renewable energy, we will keep trying to expand our footprint in the energy-storage space, not only in frequency-regulation but also in other types of storage services," said Nick Hagiwara, director, Power and Infrastructure Group, Sumitomo Corp. of Americas.
