Battery energy storage will be the key to energy transition – find out how

The market for battery energy storage is estimated to grow to $10.84bn in 2026. The fall in battery technology prices and the increasing need for grid stability are just two reasons GlobalData have predicted for this growth, with the integration of renewable power holding significant sway over the power market. Over the last decade, various new digital and smart technologies have been integrated, with countries aggressively promoting the modernization of grids, enhancing the grids’ capability to meet present and future requirements. As part of the effort, batteries are being deployed for a wide range of uses. A few such uses include aiding smart grids, integrating renewables, and creating responsive electricity markets. Read this report for expert insights into:
  • Market size and growth
  • Key drivers and restraints
  • Regional trends

The generator includes a KN model turbine, which is a two-cylinder, reheat condensing unit  installed with a TEWAC generator.

Developed by Greenfield South Power in collaboration with its affiliate Eastern Power, the Green Electron power plant is expected to improve air quality and will supply reliable power to the provincial grid.

The natural gas-fuelled plant is one of 30 natural gas generating stations in Ontario. It will be able to generate electricity for the nearby 230,000V electrical transmission circuit of Hydro One Networks.

The new plant features one combustion turbine generator, one heat recovery steam generator, and one steam turbine generator.

"The positive impact this plant will have on the community aligns with Fuji Electric’s corporate philosophy."

Fuji Electric Corp's power generation department general manager Mitchell Lardner said: “The positive impact this plant will have on the community aligns with Fuji Electric’s corporate philosophy of contributing to sustainable societies and the environment around us.”

For its new Green Electron power project, Greenfield South Power has already entered into a 20-year clean energy supply agreement with Independent Electrical System Operator of Ontario.

The plant is included in Ontario’s clean energy off-coal plan and will help realise the province’s plan to replace all of its coal-fired electricity generation with new, clean natural gas-fuelled generation.

The overall thermal efficiency of the plant is said to be higher than the coal fired facilities or simple cycle combustion turbine generator facilities.
