Electrovaya Inc, a Canada-based producer of Lithium Ion SuperPolymer batteries, has signed a contract with the Canada Government to
provide a lithium ion Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) of approximately 1.2MWh for demonstration purposes in support of renewable energy generation in Ontario, according to its press release on August 17.
This program is part of an Electrovaya-led US$7.6 million project supported by the Government of Canada’s Clean Energy Fund (CEF) to investigate the potential use of battery energy storage systems in clean energy project, such as wind and solar farms. Partners in the project include Natural Resources, Canada, Hydro One and others. Electrovaya is the prime contractor and system designer and will provide the full energy storage system.
“This important project marks Electrovaya’s second major grid storage contract and is in addition to a 1.5MWh capacity lithium ion SuperPolymer BESS being deployed by a major US utility,” said Dr Sankar Das Gupta, Electrovaya’s CEO.
According to Pike Research, grid storage is expected to grow to a US$35 billion market by 2020.
Electrovaya’s proprietary lithium ion SuperPolymer cell technology is produced using Electrovaya’s unique non-toxic NMP-free process. Electrovaya’s energy storage system consists of its large format lithium ion SuperPolymer cells, proprietary thermal and battery management systems and all necessary subsystems.
