A trucking terminal in Ohio, US, will play host to a microgrid that incorporates around half a megawatt of wind and solar generation combined with battery energy storage from distributed energy technology company EnSync.
EnSync is known for its work in demand response markets and latterly also behind-the-meter storage, smart energy management and even peer-to-peer energy trading between household and commercial battery systems, typically installed with solar PV.
The company announced this week that work has already begun on the microgrid at PITT OHIO trucking terminal, in partnership with clean energy developer WindStax Energy. It will use 730kWh of lithium battery energy storage, housed in EnSync’s DER SuperModule, which is scalable from sub-500kWh to megawatt-scale system sizes.
This will be co-located and integrated with 48kW of wind turbines and 495kW of solar PV, while the EnSync storage SuperModule also includes the company’s DER Flex Internet of Energy software and Matrix Energy Management system.
