Talen Energy Reveals 1 GW of Battery Storage Advancement Projects

May 5, 2021 11:44 AM ET

  1. Talen Energy Corporation has actually announced that it is developing a one gigawatt stand-alone battery storage space projects throughout its U.S. impact. This advancement belongs of its calculated makeover to renewable energy as well as digital facilities growth system.

The business is expected to create these battery projects ranging from 20 to about 300 megawatts throughout three states, over the next three to 5 years. It will certainly be using Talen-owned land and also legacy fossil generation and transmission facilities. In addition to generating value, and advancing Talen’s change, these projects serve as one more tangible expression of Talen’s Force for Good ESG method which, along with decarbonizing its property base, will buy its areas and supply new possibilities for its people, the business asserts.

Speaking of their future growths, the Head of state of Talen, Alex Hernandez stated, “Talen’s battery storage advancement projects will certainly play an essential role in advancing our nation’s tidy energy transition. The batteries of the 1960s, also referred to as fossil power plants, will eventually be converted to the batteries of tomorrow, which our company believe will consist of battery packs using different technologies. These battery projects, together with Talen’s existing zero-carbon nuclear baseload generation, are intended to work as a backstop for renewables’ intermittency, guaranteeing that power is available when required.”

” We believe our Giga-scale battery advancement pipeline will certainly become significantly beneficial as battery innovation boosts as well as making prices decrease with scale implementations,” Alex added.

The battery storage space setups will sustain grid resiliency as Talen’s wholly-owned coal-fired centers transition to operate on lower-carbon fuels, consisting of natural gas and also co-located renewables.

Talen’s initial 2 prepared battery storage development projects are 20-megawatt demo projects adjacent to its H.A. Wagner (Baltimore, Md.) and Camden, N.J. generation centers. The H.A. Wagner generation facility is among the coal-fired facilities that Talen revealed will certainly discontinue shedding coal by the end of 2025 as part of its change to a sustainable, ESG-focused future. The Camden battery project is anticipated to serve as an included ability resource beside this natural gas generation facility. The business anticipates to begin building on these presentation projects in Q4 2021.

” Our H.A. Wagner battery storage presentation project will act as a solid example of just how batteries of the future are a vital part to the tidy energy change and also will contribute to grid security and also resiliency as standard baseload generation units within this crucial BGE market change,” commented Cole Muller, head of Talen’s PJM generation company and also decarbonization initiatives.

He even more included, “We also think it will supply a model that can be reproduced throughout our national impact as we convert heritage fossil plants and shift to the batteries of tomorrow.”
