“Utilities – as well as end-users of electricity – can take advantage of a variety of reliable, responsive and environmentally friendly energy storage solutions to overcome expensive grid infrastructure challenges. PG&E’s project award further demonstrates Convergent’s reputation and capabilities as a leading developer of energy storage assets.”
Convergent Energy + Power, a market-leading energy storage asset developer, has announced a 10 MW, 40 MW-hour project award from Pacific Gas and Electric Company (“PG&E”). This project was selected as part of the first round of PG&E’s highly competitive Energy Storage Request For Offers solicitation, with results announced December 2, 2015.
“Energy storage can provide location-targeted capacity that relieves grid constraints and meets reliability standards, while also increasing grid flexibility and resiliency,” said Johannes Rittershausen, Convergent’s CEO. “Convergent appreciates the opportunity to work with the PG&E team to bring the benefits of commercial energy storage to California’s electric grid.”
