Once complete in April 2017, NREL staff at the facility’s National Wind Technology Centre (NWTC) will utilise the demonstrated applications of RESolve to test a variety of modes ranging from frequency regulation and renewable energy integration, to more advanced modes such as “black start” and seamless grid-to-island transition.
RES is a technology-agnostic integrator that performs engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) as well as offering long-term performance wraps. The company has partnered with LG Chem to supply batteries for the system along with SMA to provide the power conversion system (PCS) unit and Siemens to install the pad mount transformer.
“RES is pleased to install its sixteenth system (our 147th MW) near our home in Denver” said Dr. Andy Oliver, RES Chief Technology Officer. “RES is looking forward to supporting NREL in their renewable integration efforts with our grid-ready storage product.”
