E.ON Climate & Renewables North America (E.ON) has signed an agreement with Tucson Electric Power (TEP) to deliver frequency response and voltage control from a grid-scale, 10MW battery energy storage facility with a 2MW solar array. The Iron Horse battery energy storage project, which will be situated adjacent to the University of Arizona Science and Technology Park, southwest of Tucson, is anticipated to be completed by the first half of 2017. For the project, E.ON will partner with Greensmith Energy for design and integration of customised energy storage solution for TEP. The system will be capable of providing the advantages of conventional generation system’s availability and response capabilities. With this project, TEP will be able to contribute towards grid stability through ancillary services. The energy storage system will be capable of faster response when compared to conventional power generation to adjust to changes in power demand. E.ON claims to have engineered the right set of technologies that fulfil TEP’s vision of managing their system efficiently and effectively.
