    2. Greensmith Energy Will Help Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Azores

      Greensmith Energy Will Help Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Azores

      Greensmith Energy, a part of the technology group Wärtsilä, will deliver an integrated energy management system based on its industry-leading Greensmith Energy Management System (GEMS) software for Graciolica Lda’s microgrid power facility in the Azores. When completed, Graciosa Hybrid Renewable Power Plant will enable 1 MW of solar and 4.5 MW of wind power to be supplied to the local electricity grid, reducing the islands’ reliance on imported fossil fuels and significantly reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The order, placed by Portuguese project company Graciolica Lda and supported by its majority shareholder, Denmark based Recharge A/S was booked in December 2017. The Graciosa Hybrid Renewable Power Plant, located on the island of Graciosa in the northern part of the Azores, an autonomous region of Portugal, will combine solar and wind generation, together with energy storage using lithium-ion batteries supplied by Leclanché SA.

      ISO Board Takes Steps That Will Lead to Increased Renewables While Maintaining Grid Reliability

      The California Independent System Operator Board of Governors yesterday accepted proposed tariff revisions that will ensure solar, wind and battery storage resources can provide needed grid services. In doing so, renewable resources will adjust their system controls so that power voltages and currents remain in sync with grid operations. “California has a history of leading the nation in the integration of renewable resources.  We are pleased to now take this next step in which clean power resources can contribute to the reliability of the grid,” said Steve Berberich, ISO President and CEO. “By providing reactive power, these resources are better suited to help us integrate increasing numbers of renewable resources.”
