The Crossfield Energy Centre – Battery Energy Storage System is a 10,000kW energy storage project located in Crossfield, Alberta, Canada. The rated storage capacity of the project is 4,300kWh.

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.

Description

The Crossfield Energy Centre – Battery Energy Storage System is owned by ENMAX Energy (100%), a subsidiary of Enmax .

The key application of the project is spinning reserves.

Contractors involved

ENMAX Energy is the owner. GE Renewable Energy is the technology provider for the project.

Additional information

GE Renewable Energy and ENMAX have reached an agreement to upgrade an existing LM6000 Gas Turbine (GT) at ENMAX’s Crossfield Energy Center in Alberta with GE’s award-winning Hybrid Electric Gas Turbine technology. Using GE’s proven Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) and patented hybrid controls, the turbine will be equipped to provide operating reserves without burning fuel, enabling significant Green House Gas (GHG) emissions reductions.
