Renewable Energy World – Ameresco to supply 537 MW/2 GWh battery storage to support California grid

Renewable energy asset developer Ameresco will supply Southern California Edison with three battery energy storage systems totaling 537 MW/2 GWh to provide resiliency to the grid.

The grid-scale battery energy storage systems will be deployed at existing substation parcels throughout SCE’s service territory in California, reaching commercial operation by August 2022.

“SCE sees a growing role for battery storage as we transition to delivering 100% clean renewable energy to customers,” SCE President and CEO Kevin Payne said. “The battery storage systems we have contracted for with Ameresco will make the grid more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and will help us continue our progress toward the clean energy future, which is essential to combating climate change.”
