Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES) has announced its sixth utility-scale energy storage project, Willey Battery Storage, in Hamilton, Ohio.

RES developed and will construct the 6MW energy storage project that will be owned by Sumitomo Corporation. The project will include three containers of lithium ion batteries manufactured by Toshiba, and three inverter units manufactured by Parker Hannifin. Construction of the project will begin in April 2015, with substantial completion expected by the end of the year. The Willey Battery Storage project will be used to provide frequency regulation service to PJM, the largest grid operator in North America. The monitoring, dispatch and control of the system will be handled by the RESolve energy storage platform, a proprietary technology developed by RES Americas. RESolve will manage the system for maximising revenue while minimising battery degradation.
