Centrica Business-Brooklyn Hybrid Facility Battery Energy Storage System, US

By Carmen 21 Sep 2021

The Centrica Business-Brooklyn Hybrid Facility Battery Energy Storage System is a 5,000kW energy storage project located in Brooklyn, New York, US. The rated storage capacity of the project is 15,000kWh.

The project will be commissioned in 2022.

Additional information

The 5 MW/ 15MWh battery system holds enough power for about 5,000 apartments for four hours of peak summer usage. The facility will also house 18 direct-current fast chargers and will be among the largest charging facilities in the city. The batteries and chargers will be grid-connected, and Centrica will sell services from the storage into wholesale markets as part of a virtual power plant. The batteries will be charged from ConEdison’s grid during overnight hours when demand is low and power is cheaper.
