Customized Energy Solutions (CES) has signed a multi-year agreement with
Renewable Energy Systems Americas (RES
Americas) to provide operations and dispatch support in optimizing
their energy storage projects in the United States and Canada. This
partnership will enable RES Americas to continue to expand its base of
energy storage devices throughout North America.
On August 5, Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada), a
division of RES Americas and leader in the development and construction
of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in North
America, announced final certification of the company's second energy
storage system, Amphora.
RES Canada conceived, developed, and constructed the energy storage
system, which it will own and operate. Located in Central Strathroy,
west of London, Ontario, the system is comprised of a +/-4 megawatt (MW)
(8MW total range)/ 2.6MWh lithium battery that will provide a service
called "frequency regulation" to Ontario's grid operator, the Independent
Electricity System Operator (IESO). Amphora will operate under a
three year agreement with the IESO and the faclity has a lifespan of
more than 10 years.
"CES is proud to work with RES Americas on integrating this project into
the Ontario energy grid. We have appreciated working with them from the
initial phase of evaluation of new markets through the use of our
Competitive Market Evaluation Tools for Storage, 'CoMETS'," stated
Judith Judson-McQueeney, CES Director of Emerging Technologies.
"We appreciated CES' professionalism and demonstrated knowledge of the
ISO data requirements and their understanding of the additional
regulatory steps to be navigated with this new technology," said Andy
Oliver, CTO, RES Americas.
"This is a critical juncture in the integration of battery storage into
the market, transitioning from pilots to grid scale commercially viable
projects. We appreciate RES' visionary leadership in the energy
industry, and we are honored to have RES Americas select our 24-hour
market operations center to help them optimize their energy storage
system," said Erik Paulson, CES Vice President of Generation Services.
