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.

Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
