April 11 (Renewables Now) - US-based Powin Energy Corp said on Tuesday it will supply a 10-MW/10-MWh energy storage facility to a portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners for a project in Texas.
The distributed battery system will be constructed this year within the service territory of grid operator Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). It will be delivered to Illinois-based GlidePath Power Solutions, Powin said without disclosing financial information on the contract.
The energy storage facility will use lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries that are suitable for long-duration applications. Powin pointed out it has already used the Stack modular battery systems in a range of utility-scale, commercial, industrial and microgrid applications, among which are projects in Canada and Mexico.
GlidePath has an over 100-MW portfolio of operational battery storage, wind and solar capacity across the US. Additionally, it has a development pipeline of energy storage projects exceeding 1 GW.
