The two will look to identify other opportunities across the US.
Jera said they will include stand-alone storage and co-located with renewable energy sources to support the expansion of renewable energy deployment.
The two companies will conduct a study on the applicability of the large-scale battery business including JERA Americas’ facilities in these regions and other areas.
This marks Zenobē’s first move into the US, a step in its plans for global expansion.
JERA said New York state and New England are considered promising markets for the development of the battery business.
