It said the NAS batteries ordered by Toho Gas, headquartered in Nagoya, Japan, have an output of 11,400 kW and a capacity of 69,600 kWh. They will be installed at the former site of Toho Gas’s Tsu LNG station, with construction set to begin this month.
The batteries will be directly connected to the same electrical power grid as for grid storage.
They are intended to stabilize the supply and demand of electrical power by storing electrical power when there is an excess supply and discharging it during shortages.
Toho Gas was selected as a business operator under the Sustainable Open Innovation Initiative.
NAS batteries have been installed at more than 200 locations worldwide.
