Energy Vault Holdings and Jupiter Power are collaborating on 220 MWh of battery power storage in Texas and California. Vitality Vault will provide gear, engineering, procurement, development, stability of plant providers and the power administration software program throughout two Jupiter BESS tasks.
The tasks embrace a 100 MW (200 MWh) battery power storage system close to Fort Stockton, Texas, which can present power and ancillary providers to ERCOT, and a ten MW (20 MWh) system in Carpinteria, Calif., to offer grid providers via participation within the CAISO Useful resource Adequacy program in addition to power resiliency in Southern California.
The tasks will present critically wanted dispatchable capability to those electrical energy markets and are anticipated to be accomplished in 2023.
The techniques will make the most of Vitality Vault Options’ (EVS) proprietary integration platform and powered by EVS’ progressive power administration software program platform, which began growth 9 months in the past in November 2021, as beforehand introduced. EVS allows the combination and orchestration of a number of power belongings underneath a mess of use circumstances.
“With at the moment’s inaugural EVS-enabled battery power storage tasks announcement supporting a market chief in storage infrastructure and analytics like Jupiter, we’re delivering on our complete power storage options technique launched simply 9 months in the past,” mentioned Marco Terruzzin, Chief Industrial Officer, Vitality Vault. “We’re seeing robust demand for our EVS-enabled power storage options on a worldwide foundation because of the distinctive means of our platform to combine and ship each quick and lengthy length (EVx) power storage applied sciences.”
“Jupiter is happy to be working with Vitality Vault to broaden our current battery power storage portfolio with these two new tasks,” mentioned Michael Geier, Chief Know-how Officer of Jupiter Energy. “As the biggest developer and operator of battery power storage tasks on the ERCOT grid, we see a powerful must proceed to execute progressive storage options to assist relieve grid pressure. We’re additionally excited to be constructing our first venture in California, the place grid situations proceed to show a powerful want for extra battery power storage capability.”
Jupiter at the moment has 654 MWh of battery power storage tasks in operations or commissioning in Texas and greater than 11 GW of extra tasks in growth in a number of goal markets from California to Maine. Jupiter’s tasks are crucial to decarbonizing the U.S. electrical energy grid by offering non-emitting era to help and agency the penetration of renewable electrical energy assets, particularly photo voltaic and wind, whereas rising grid resiliency and reliability.
