The Anderson Civic Center – Battery Energy Storage System is a 5,000kW energy storage project located in Anderson County, South Carolina, US.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2019 and will be commissioned in 2021.
The Anderson Civic Center – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by Duke Energy. The project is owned by Duke Energy (100%).
The key applications of the project are demand response and grid support services.
Duke Energy is the owner. Duke Energy is the developer.
The 5 MW lithium ion battery will be grid-tied and available for use by Duke Energy Carolinas grid operators. The battery storage system will benefit all Duke Energy Carolinas customers by helping grid operators more efficiently manage the grid, providing additional energy options and improving grid stability during periods of peak customer demand. The battery storage project – the first of its kind for Duke Energy in the state – will be located on land adjacent to the Anderson Civic Center and will also serve as back-up power for the facility. The battery will be able to power the Civic Center in the event of an outage for at least 30 hours based on the facility’s normal usage.
