A123 deploys 500kW ESS for Chinese machinery maker

Fri, 03/14/2014 - 12:31 -- Ruth Williams
The 500kW 125kWh grid-connected energy storage system is for Dongfang Electric Machinery in Hangzhou, China.

A123 Energy Solutions has commissioned a 500kW 125kWh grid-connected energy storage system for Dongfang Electric Machinery in Hangzhou, China.

The lithium iron-phosphate system is housed in an existing on-site building rather than being in a stand-alone container. The system is co-located with PV and wind generation sources to integrate renewable energy resources for the machinery company.

British power utility trials energy storage

The largest of the batteries being installed in Darlington, Yorkshire

Northern Powergrid in the UK has installed six energy storage devices into its live electricity network as part of a trial to balance the supply and demand of electricity with batteries.

The trial includes installation of the largest capacity battery in operation in Europe at 5MWh; it is a nanophosphate lithium-ion battery supplied by A123 Energy Solutions. Two 200kWh and three 100kWh capacity batteries are also in use in both urban and rural locations across the northeast of England.

The storage devices are sited at different points on the network to get a better understanding of how the batteries work in both urban and rural settings with a range of construction types and varying customer needs.

Northern Powergrid will be monitoring all six of the batteries and the networks they are on through an active network management control system that allows the company to view in real time when and where to utilise the stored energy.

The data gathered from this trial will show how feasible the model is to use across the UK. It is part funded by Ofgem’s Low Carbon Networks Fund.

Hitachi develops ESS to stabilise US grid

Hitachi's CrystaEna will be available in the US from 2015

Hitachi has announced it has developed an energy storage system for the US market that can be integrated to high-voltage power lines to capture energy that has been generated by renewable sources. The stored energy can be sold back to the grid from the lithium-ion battery at times of high demand.

The Japanese company believes the 1MW system, known as CrystEna, will help to stabilise the grid by supporting solar and wind power.
