Anchorage Area Battery Energy Storage System-BESS, US

By Carmen

The Anchorage Area Battery Energy Storage System-BESS is a 25,000kW energy storage project located in Alaska, US.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2016.


The key applications of the project are electric energy time shift, electric supply reserve capacity – spinning, load following (tertiary balancing), transportable transmission/distribution upgrade and deferral.

Additional information

This project includes the installation of a 25 MW / 14 mWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in the Anchorage area. This device will add stability to the system and provide a measure of “spin” to facilitate spooling-up alternative generation in the event of an outage.
