The Warrior Run Power Plant – Battery Energy Storage System is a 10,000kW energy storage project located in Cumberland, Maryland, US.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2015 and was commissioned in 2015.
The Warrior Run Power Plant – Battery Energy Storage System was developed by AES Energy Storage. The project is owned by The AES (100%).
The key applications of the project are electric supply reserve capacity – spinning and frequency regulation.
AES Energy Storage, LG Chem and The AES have delivered the battery energy storage project.
The Warrior Run Advancion Energy Storage Array is the largest grid-scale battery, and one of the largest green technology projects, in Maryland, providing 10 MW of interconnected energy storage, equivalent to 20 MW of flexible resource. Warrior Run will provide critical grid stability services in the form of frequency regulation service to the PJM Interconnection, which controls the power grid for more than 61 million people.
