Energy Storage Test Planned for New York

A $23 million Battery and Energy Storage Technology Testing and Commercialization Center in Rochester, New York, will begin operations in December this year. The facility is the result of a partnership between energy consultancy firm DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability and the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium. Under the terms of the cooperation, DNV KEMA will pour in $16 million, and also shift its present energy storage test activities from its plant in Pennsylvania to Rochester.

NY-BEST will contribute $6.9 million from state grant funds. The main operation of the Center is to conduct a battery of tests, validation and independent certification capabilities to help speed up the market penetration of energy storage technologies.
