$3.3m Grant For Sodium-Sulfur Battery Storage Smart Grid Project
The California Energy Commission recently added $3.3 million to PG&E’s coffers for a smart grid pilot project incorporating utility-scale sodium-sulfur battery storage.
The Yerba Buena Battery Energy Storage System Pilot Project, as it is called, has a capacity of 4 megawatts, and can currently store energy for more than six hours.
S&C is the contractor and battery supplier for the Yerba Buena Project, while PG&E will install and evaluate the system while working together with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to improve the battery system.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
