Advanced Microgrid Solutions signed a memorandum of understanding with Shell Energy to install up to 20 MW of battery energy storage at Shell Energy commercial, industrial and utility customer sites throughout California.

Through the agreement, AMS and Shell Energy will work together to identify new and existing direct access and utility customers who want to install advanced battery systems.

With this agreement, Shell Energy furthers its commitment to customer service by offering the latest in energy management, cost reduction, emergency generation and technology advancements.

AMS will design, finance, build and operate the projects. Shell Energy will have dispatch rights on capacity for use in planning and market operations.

This new agreement comes on the heels of a 500 MW-hour storage deal between AMS and Tesla as well as a contract signed in November 2014 with Southern California Edison (SCE) to build 50 MWs of storage in buildings to provide grid support. AMS' first 10-MW Hybrid-Electric Building Project will be installed in Irvine, California in 2016.

AMS designs, finances, installs and manages advanced energy storage solutions for commercial, industrial and government building owners.
