Advanced Microgrid Solutions, Tesla sign 500 MWh energy storage deal

Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS) has selected Tesla as the primary technology provider for its utility-scale energy storage projects. Under the agreement, AMS will install up to 500-MWh of Tesla batteries in its energy storage projects. Black & Veatch will serve as the engineering and construction contractor.

"This is all about building resilience into the grid," said Jackalyne Pfannenstiel, co-founder of AMS and former assistant secretary of the Navy. "Energy storage turns traditional demand response into firm, reliable capacity - it changes everything about the way the grid is operated."

AMS will install and operate Tesla's Powerpack energy storage systems in commercial and industrial facilities to provide grid support. Last fall, AMS secured 50-MWs of contracts to build grid-scale energy storage projects for Southern California Edison, including the creation of the first fleet of Hybrid-Electric Buildings.

AMS' first 10-MW Hybrid-Electric Building Project will be installed in Irvine, California in 2016.
