RES Awarded Storage Project for National Wind Technology Center

Once complete in April 2017, research staff from the NREL will utilize the 10+ demonstrated applications of RESolve® to test certain modes ranging from frequency regulation and renewable energy integration, to more advanced modes such as “black start” and seamless grid-to-island transition.

Broomfield, Colo. - Renewable Energy Systems (RES), is pleased to announce that our RESolve® energy storage system has been selected for the 1MW/1MWh energy storage test project at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) National Wind Technology Center (NWTC). RES is a technology-agnostic integrator that performs the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) as well as offering long-term performance wraps.


Once complete in April 2017, research staff from the NREL will utilize the 10+ demonstrated applications of RESolve® to test certain modes ranging from frequency regulation and renewable energy integration, to more advanced modes such as "black start" and seamless grid-to-island transition.

RES 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 megawatt) near our home in Denver," stated 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."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
