The Texas Waves Energy Short Duration Battery Energy Storage Project 1 is a 9,900kW energy storage project located in Texas, US.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2017 and was commissioned in 2018.
The Texas Waves Energy Short Duration Battery Energy Storage Project 1 is owned by E.ON Climate & Renewables North America (100%), a subsidiary of E.ON.
The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.
E.ON Climate & Renewables North America and Greensmith Energy Management Systems have delivered the battery energy storage project.
Texas Waves consists of two 9.9 MW short duration energy storage projects using lithium-ion battery technology and will be an integral part of the wind farm facilities near Roscoe, Texas. Texas Waves are designed to provide ancillary services to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market and will be capable of responding to shifts in power demand more quickly, increasing system reliability and efficiency.
