US Energy Storage Update

US energy storage plants

Tehachapi is nominally a wind energy-related project attached to the 4.5 GW.
When it opened, in September 2014, it was credited with being the largest battery storage project in the North of the US, with 604,832 Li-ion cells housed in 10,872 modules.

This blog focuses on the Borrego Springs, Tehachapiand and Notrees energy storage projects and examines the long-term impact that they will have on the future project pipeline in the US.

According to the Energy Storage Association’s US Energy Storage Monitor, 60.3 MW of storage was deployed in the third quarter of 2015, a twofold year-on-year increase.
