Utility-scale mobile energy storage solutions provider Power Edison is to supply a US utility with a 3MW/12MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) this year— it will be the world’s largest mobile BESS.
To meet the challenges of increasing grid stresses and constraints faced by utilities, Power Edison has developed utility-scale battery storage solutions to provide power where and when it is needed.
Energy storage has key reliability and economic applications for electric utilities and the commercial and industrial sectors that include: grid resiliency, EV charging support and backup power.
The company has developed barge-based batteries that form the core of its marine-based solutions.
The initial set of its 500MWh+ development pipeline is going through final permitting, and is about to start construction.
Its barge fleet brings grid storage to locations where land is at a premium or not available.
Yazan Harasis, director of projects at Power Edison, said: “We have developed a full range of innovative, patent-pending solutions offering industry-leading features such as enhanced cybersecurity, ‘plug-and-play’ integration and modularity.
“Our software provides asset owners and operators a unified control platform for the various technology assets.”
