The new storage solution will utilise GE’s Mark VIe-based plant control system, Brilliance MW Inverters, and packaged lithium ion battery modules. The project marks the first occasion on which GE has introduced a lithium ion (Li-ion) battery solution which is supported by associated long-term service agreements. The system will provide 2 MW of power over a four-hour period and includes delivery of a complete energy storage system.

“We have a history of working with GE in thermal and wind, and we are pleased to continue our long-standing collaboration into the evolving world of energy storage” said Mark Noyes, SVP and COO of Con Edison Development. “GE brings a strong technical solution, along with performance guarantees.”

Jeff Wyatt, general manager of GE’s solar and energy storage units, added that the company is committed to energy storage, with a goal of helping customers to provide flexibility across the grid through its expertise with plant controls, power electronics, systems engineering and fundamental battery knowledge. The recent addition of Li-ion complements GE’s Durathon battery and gives customers more flexibility in meeting their specific site application needs.

GE also utilised advanced analytics and modelling to evaluate potential benefits of the energy storage system. The California-based installation will be CED’s first energy storage project and will serve as a learning tool for optimising and operating energy storage facilities in the future. California has encouraged investments in energy storage over recent years. In 2013, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) announced targets that call for California investor-owned utilities to procure 1.325 GW of cost-effective energy storage by 2020.

The system is expected to become operational in the next six to nine months.
