Additional information

AMS’s Hybrid-Electric Building project is a cutting-edge initiative to install advanced energy storage systems in commercial and industrial buildings to provide large-scale grid support to utilities. Equipped individual buildings with state-of-the-art battery technology and advanced energy management software enables the building load to be shifted from electric grid to battery power during peak demand periods. Hybrid-electric buildings are then aggregated into “fleets” and operated as a single resource, allowing SCE to shift the entire fleet of buildings to stored energy when grid resources are strained.


All publicly-announced energy storage projects included in this analysis are drawn from GlobalData’s Power IC. The information regarding the projects are sourced through secondary information sources such as country specific power players, company news and reports, statistical organisations, regulatory body, government planning reports and their publications and is further validated through primary from various stakeholders such as power utility companies, consultants, energy associations of respective countries, government bodies and professionals from leading players in the power sector.
