Greensmith Energy, one of the largest providers of energy-storage software and integration services, has announced that AltaGas Ltd. has selected Greensmith as the software provider and system integrator for a 20 MW, 80-MWh system in Pomona, California. AltaGas and Greensmith will deploy a state-of-the-art 20 MW energy storage system to help with Resource Adequacy in California and offer multiple other grid applications. The project will be expedited and is expected to be completed in December 2016.
“Adding battery storage to our California power portfolio and having Greensmith as our partner, proves the versatility of our asset base and greatly enhances the value of what we can offer the California and desert southwest markets through integrated energy centers providing clean, reliable electricity,” said David Harris, President and Chief Executive Officer of AltaGas. The company owns six natural gas-fired power and power producing generating facilities in California.
Greensmith is on track to install 200 MW of cumulative operating capacity by designing and globally deploying energy storage technologies. Leveraging significant grid-scale experience in the modeling and design of complex energy storage applications, all company systems are anchored by GEMS, a software platform for energy storage.
As one of the largest providers of energy storage software and integration services, Greensmith says its mission is to make energy storage a fundamental part of a cleaner, more intelligent and distributed energy infrastructure. Now in its fifth generation, the GEMS software platform optimizes the performance of energy storage by lowering costs and maximizing system return on investment throughout life.
