Shell reducing energy consumption thanks to new 21-MWh storage
By Anthony Capkun
November 25, 2019 – Shell New Energies is reducing energy consumption by one-third of typical demand for a couple of its facilities thanks to new—and now fully operational—21-MWh industrial battery storage systems.
A joint venture between Convergent Energy + Power and Shell New Energies, the projects are located at the Brockville Lubricants Plant and Sarnia Manufacturing Centre.
“We’re proud to work with the innovative team at Shell New Energies to create value for Shell Canada Products facilities while providing long-term benefits to the grid,” said Convergent’s Toby Tiktinsky, senior VP of business development.
Convergent will operate the energy storage systems to reduce the amount of electricity the facilities use during peak periods via its proprietary asset management platform, PEAK IQ.
“We’re looking forward to providing Convergent’s results-driven approach to energy management in Ontario to commercial and industrial facilities across North America,” added Tiktinsky.
Convergent Energy + Power is an independent developer of energy storage solutions in North America, reporting over 120 MW and 240 MWh of projects in operation, construction or under contract, with over 40 MW in service in Ontario.
