The University of British Columbia will deploy its own smart grid energy storage system at $5.1 million in a partnership with Alpha Technologies Ltd and Corvus Energy.
When completed, the project will support three major facilities on campus with one megawatt hour of stored energy. The administration chose to incorporate smart grid technology so that smoothing peak demand can be more easily controlled.
The project is a major step for the university, which has aims to achieve a 100 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2007 levels by 2050.
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.
