      NEC Energy Solutions to Install Energy Storage System in California

      NEC Energy Solutions, a leading energy storage system manufacturer, has been awarded a contract to supply a 2.5MW, 3.9MWh GSS™ to one of the largest electric utilities in the United States. As a key part of a distributed energy storage integration program, the GSS, or Grid Storage Solution, will be used to support analysis of the value streams that energy storage can provide to utilities, ratepayers, and other involved parties. The program will explore how energy storage can support distribution circuits in the utility's diverse service territory. During the program, the GSS will not only be used to limit loading of the line under dynamic load scenarios, but also be capable of providing voltage regulation. In addition, the deployment of this GSS aligns with the utility's requirement to procure energy storage as set forth by the California Public Utility Commission's energy storage mandate.

      IESO Issues Request for Proposal to Procure Energy Storage Services

      Ontario's Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) has issued a request for proposals to procure up to 35 megawatts (MW) of energy storage to explore how new technologies can provide needed flexibility in grid operations. This competitive process is designed to select and test a diverse portfolio of storage technologies. Once the projects are in place the IESO will assess their capabilities in helping to balance supply and demand. This process will allow the IESO to learn more about integrating new technologies into mainstream grid and market operations. Energy storage technologies are systems that withdraw electricity from the grid and store it so that it can be injected back at a later time.
