This week’s TOP 5 includes a 10 MW / 10 MWh battery system to be deployed in Texas by Powin and Glidepath, storage-specific investment tax credits being pushed at the US congress, a new scheme by ConEdison in New York to deploy behind the meter energy storage systems, EDP and Exide deploying the first PV plus storage system in Portugal, and a successful round of funding for RedT. 

 

  1. “Powin Energy will deliver 10 MW/10 MWh of energy storage system to GlidePath Power Solutions for an energy storage project to be constructed in 2019, in Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) territory.“
  2. The US congress attempts to introduce investment tax credits for stand-alone energy storage systems.
  3. Four systems of 1 MW / 1 MWh each are being deployed under a new scheme by ConEdison. In this scheme, ConEdison identifies congested areas and directly operates and remunerates batteries installed in C&I facilities in the area (instead of relying on the electricity bill reduction).
  4. Portuguese utility Energias De Portugal (EDP) announced that it will deliver a 3.8 MWp solar project with 500 kWh storage capacity for battery maker Exide.
  5. UK-based flow battery manufacturer RedT has raised £3.2m.
