Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. won a contract with the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) of the University of Hawaii at Manoa to supply a 2-MW ALTI-ESS Advantage energy storage system for a grid stability demonstration project.
HNEI has selected Altairnano and the ALTI-ESS Advantage after two prior energy storage system purchases focused on renewable energy integration. The ALTI-ESS Advantage supplies 2 MW of power and 397 kWh of energy as part of a new product offering that has a 25 percent smaller footprint and lower cost per MW than the product it replaced.
The research project, funded through a grant from the Office of Naval Research, will help validate the performance characteristics of the ALTI-ESS Advantage and demonstrate the effectiveness of energy storage to integrate solar photovoltaic power generation into the electric grid.
