NRG, Toshiba Deliver 2-MW Energy Storage System in Texas

Toshiba and NRG Energy have deployed a 2-MW battery storage system for the ERCOT grid.

The Elbow Creek Energy Storage project, which uses the latest SCiBTM lithium-ion battery design, was installed near NRG’s and NRG Yield’s Elbow Creek Wind Farm in Howard County, Texas.

Elbow Creek is expected to demonstrate the environmentally-beneficial impact and commercial viability of combining energy storage with the growing hub of renewable generation in West Texas. It is also expected to correct short-term grid imbalances with high-speed frequency regulation services, and move blocks of generation from the hours when wind generation is high to the hours when load support is most needed.
