Demand Energy, an Enel Group subsidiary, announced that it has been selected by New York City's distribution grid operator to build a total of 2.5 MW/10 MWh of energy storage projects that will deliver behind-the-meter benefits to C&I customers and provide support to the City's electricity grid. The storage systems, which will be installed in 11 different commercial locations across the City, will be controlled by the company's Distributed Energy Network Optimization System (DEN.OS ) intelligent software control platform. The projects are part of a program that aims to reduce electricity demand during peak hours and provide grid capacity relief as an alternative to more expensive electricity network buildouts.
"We're proud to be selected to expand the deployment of our DEN.OS-powered storage solutions, and demonstrate the value creation and demand reduction capabilities of intelligent energy storage across New York City," said Jeff Damron, VP of Sales for Demand Energy.
Demand Energy has a five-year track record of successfully installing systems in New York City to provide load relief on peak power days. In total, the company has deployed storage systems across more than a dozen sites in Greater NYC, including the city's first solar PV-plus-storage microgrid, all enabled by DEN.OS . The platform is designed to manages storage and other distributed energy resources (DERs) to reduce peak demand, while maximizing economic returns from behind-the-meter storage systems alone -- or in combination with distributed generation resources, such as fuel cells and solar power.
