Samsung SDI Comes to the Rescue to Support California Energy Industry with Ultra-Fast Battery Delivery for the World's Largest Battery-Based ESS Project
On February 24, 2017, the world's largest Energy Storage System (ESS), a 30 MW, 120 MWh installation powered by AES Energy Storage's Advancion platform and Samsung SDI batteries was unveiled. A second Advancion array utilizing Samsung SDI batteries, a 7.5 MW, 30 MWh installation, was completed nearby and unveiled during the same event. Late 2016, Samsung SDI was awarded to supply a staggering 70% (240 MWh out of 340 MWh) of all the batteries for all the ESS projects awarded to address regional reliability concerns in Southern California (including the above mentioned and just unveiled installations). Samsung SDI delivered this immense batteries volume across all ESS projects in a remarkably shortened 4 months period from order, to manufacturing, delivery, installation and commissioning. With this unprecedented success, Samsung SDI strengthens its position as the #1 battery supplier of energy storage solutions in North America through strategic cooperation with key energy and ESS global leaders awarded as part of the lightning speed procurements.

Morgan Sherburne for U of Michigan News: An issue that has long plagued renewable energy facilities is how to efficiently store energy collected from sun or wind. Now, University of Michigan and University of Utah chemists have developed an energy-storing molecule that is 1,000 times more stable than current compounds, potentially leading to a longer-lived, more efficient battery. The researchers are working to develop industrial-scale batteries that can store large amounts of energy for deployment when the sun sets or the wind stops blowing. Deep-cycle lead batteries or lithium ion batteries are already on the market, but each type presents challenges, including the significant environmental hazards of disposal. Also, these kinds of batteries wear out relatively quickly. Cont'd...
NEC Energy Solutions to Build and Operate 50 MW of Grid Energy Storage Facilities in UK for VLC Energy
NEC Energy Solutions contracted to build and operate a total of 50 MW of lithium-ion based energy storage facilities for VLC Energy, a joint venture between Low Carbon and VPI Immingham, to provide Enhanced Frequency Response to the UK electricity grid among other services. Under construction now, the facilities are expected to be operational by November 2017.

The agreement calls for Younicos to replace earlier-generation lead-acid batteries and battery racks with advanced lithium-ion batteries. The implementation of li-on batteries will increase the operational lifetime of the storage resource.
Today, SDG&E is showcasing the world's largest lithium-ion battery energy storage facility in partnership with AES Energy Storage, which will enhance regional energy reliability while maximizing renewable energy use. The 30 megawatt (MW) energy storage facility is capable of storing up to 120 megawatt hours of energy, the energy equivalent of serving 20,000 customers for four hours. Last year, the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) directed Southern California investor-owned electric utilities to fast-track additional energy storage options to enhance regional energy reliability. In response, SDG&E expedited ongoing negotiations and contracted with AES Energy Storage to build two projects for a total of 37.5 MW of lithium ion battery energy storage. In addition to the 30 MW facility built in Escondido, Calif., a smaller 7.5 MW installation was built in El Cajon. Full Press Release:

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
