NEC to Supply Southern California Edison with 3.4 MW of Energy Storage

By Editors of Power Engineering

NEC Energy Solutions announced it will supply Southern California Edison with its first grid energy storage pilot system.

Under the agreement, NEC will provide a GSS energy storage solution that will include 3.4 MWh of containerized lithium ion batteries, a 3 MW power conversion system and the AEROS controls software suite. NEC will also provide service and maintenance.

The energy storage system aims to defer traditional distribution grid upgrades that have become increasingly challenging, especially in dense urban environments served by Southern California Edison.

“Commercialization of energy storage in a way that allows quick and easy procurement has always been a goal of ours,” said Bud Collins, CEO of NEC Energy Solutions. “We worked extensively with SCE on this innovative program to make energy storage transactional while ensuring safety, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of the technology. Programs like this will make energy storage – a fast, flexible, clean, and dispatchable resource – an integral part of the grid.”
