The AMS-Hybrid-Electric Buildings – Battery Energy Storage Systems is an 11,000kW energy storage project located in California, US.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2015 and was commissioned in 2018.


The AMS-Hybrid-Electric Buildings – Battery Energy Storage Systems was developed by Advanced Microgrid Solutions.

The key applications of the project are demand response and load following.

Contractors involved

Advanced Microgrid Solutions and Tesla have delivered the battery energy storage project.

Additional information

The 21 high-rise office buildings are equipped with energy management and cloud-based optimization software that employs advanced analytics to enable each building to control its demand from the electric grid, and respond in unison when SCE signals a need to reduce load on the grid.
