Greensmith Energy, a part of the technology group Wärtsilä, completed two grid-scale energy storage systems in partnership with E.ON Climate & Renewables in Texas. The 9.9-megawatt, short-duration Texas Waves storage facilities are fed by E.ON’s 249-megawatt Pyron and the 197-megawatt Inadale wind farms, both near Roscoe, Texas. The advanced energy storage systems are programmed for multiple applications including rapid response to shifts in demand, power quality and overall grid reliability. The system already responded to a recent cold spell and delivered short term energy to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). What do you see as energy storage systems' potential challenges and benefits?
