Invenergy Builds a Utility-Scale Energy Storage System

If you are looking for a company that can build a Utility-scale Energy Storage System, may be the right fit. With five Utility-scale Energy Storage projects under development and the role of EPC provider, Invenergy is one of the leading owner-operators and developers of battery storage systems. If you’d like to know more about this exciting new technology, read on! Listed below are a few of the top companies currently developing such systems.

Austin Energy

A Texas public utility, Austin Energy, is testing distributed solar energy storage technologies as part of the US Department of Energies’ SHINES project. Austin Energy plans to deploy two Microgrid ESS Lithium Ion Battery Storage systems to support commercial rooftop solar systems in Mueller Development. Such a system could be a key component of a smarter grid in the future. The utility expects the project to help it reduce customer costs while balancing distributed energy resources.

CPS Energy

One of the companies working on this project is CPS Energy, which is based in San Antonio and owns various renewable assets, including wind farms and solar panels. The company is giving DISTRIBUTECH International attendees a tour of their facility, which will be operational by the end of the week. Its system will initially store one megawatt of electricity for up to 10 hours and will eventually be expanded to a larger capacity.


The LG&E Utility-scale Energy Storage System, also known as ESS, is designed for use in home or business applications. It features a DC-coupled battery system to convert electrical energy more efficiently than the AC-coupled battery system. In addition, ESS uses three-phase alternating current to prevent unbalanced loads. Its web monitoring feature lets users monitor their system’s performance and detect potential problems.

KU Energy

Energy storage technologies are available in many forms, including magnetic storage and chemical storage. The Energy Center uses an environmentally benign flow battery chemistry made of earth-abundant iron and salt. It has no rare-earth metals, and it poses no explosive, chemical, or fire risk. Its design is also one of the safest and most easily permitted storage technologies. In addition to its long lifespan, the Invinity battery system is also environmentally friendly.

Saft and Power Electronics

The design and implementation of an energy storage system combines power electronics with a software platform to enable the use of batteries to store and convert electricity. Low-level software controls battery components, including thermal management and power conversion, to ensure optimal charging and discharging times. Low-level software also manages a fleet of distributed energy storage systems that can be deployed to support a generation asset, transmission network, or both.
